God’s People Are Comforted

40"Comfort, yes, comfort My people!" Says your God.H5162H5162H5971H559H430 2"Speak comfort to Jerusalem, and cry out to her, That her warfare is ended, That her iniquity is pardoned; For she has received from the LORD'S hand Double for all her sins."H1696H3820H3389H7121H6635H4390H5771H7521H3947H3068H3027H3718H2403 3The voice of one crying in the wilderness: "Prepare the way of the LORD; Make straight in the desert A highway for our God.H6963H7121H4057H6437H1870H3068H3474H6160H4546H430 4Every valley shall be exalted And every mountain and hill brought low; The crooked places shall be made straight And the rough places smooth;H1516H5375H2022H1389H8213H6121H4334H7406H1237 5The glory of the LORD shall be revealed, And all flesh shall see it together; For the mouth of the LORD has spoken."H3519H3068H1540H1320H7200H3162H6310H3068H1696 6The voice said, "Cry out!" And he said, "What shall I cry?" "All flesh is grass, And all its loveliness is like the flower of the field.H6963H559H7121H559H7121H1320H2682H2617H6731H7704 7The grass withers, the flower fades, Because the breath of the LORD blows upon it; Surely the people are grass.H2682H3001H6731H5034H7307H3068H5380H403H5971H2682 8The grass withers, the flower fades, But the word of our God stands forever."H2682H3001H6731H5034H1697H430H6965H5769 9O Zion, You who bring good tidings, Get up into the high mountain; O Jerusalem, You who bring good tidings, Lift up your voice with strength, Lift it up, be not afraid; Say to the cities of Judah, "Behold your God!"H6726H1319H5927H1364H2022H3389H1319H7311H6963H3581H7311H3372H559H5892H3063H430 10Behold, the Lord GOD shall come with a strong hand, And His arm shall rule for Him; Behold, His reward is with Him, And His work before Him.H136H3069H935H2389H2220H4910H7939H6468H6440 11He will feed His flock like a shepherd; He will gather the lambs with His arm, And carry them in His bosom, And gently lead those who are with young.H7462H5739H7462H6908H2922H2220H5375H2436H5095H5763 12Who has measured the waters in the hollow of His hand, Measured heaven with a span And calculated the dust of the earth in a measure? Weighed the mountains in scales And the hills in a balance?H4058H4325H8168H8505H8064H2239H3557H6083H776H7991H8254H2022H6425H1389H3976 13Who has directed the Spirit of the LORD, Or as His counselor has taught Him?H8505H7307H3068H376H6098H3045 14With whom did He take counsel, and who instructed Him, And taught Him in the path of justice? Who taught Him knowledge, And showed Him the way of understanding?H3289H995H3925H734H4941H3925H1847H3045H1870H8394 15Behold, the nations are as a drop in a bucket, And are counted as the small dust on the scales; Look, He lifts up the isles as a very little thing.H1471H4752H1805H2803H7834H3976H5190H339H1851 16And Lebanon is not sufficient to burn, Nor its beasts sufficient for a burnt offering.H3844H369H1767H1197H2416H1767H5930 17All nations before Him are as nothing, And they are counted by Him less than nothing and worthless.H1471H2803H657H8414 18To whom then will you liken God? Or what likeness will you compare to Him?H1819H410H1823H6186 19The workman molds an image, The goldsmith overspreads it with gold, And the silversmith casts silver chains.H2796H5258H6459H6884H7554H2091H6884H3701H7577 20Whoever is too impoverished for such a contribution Chooses a tree that will not rot; He seeks for himself a skillful workman To prepare a carved image that will not totter.H5533H5534H8641H977H6086H7537H1245H2450H2796H3559H6459H4131 21Have you not known? Have you not heard? Has it not been told you from the beginning? Have you not understood from the foundations of the earth?H3045H8085H5046H7218H995H4146H776 22It is He who sits above the circle of the earth, And its inhabitants are like grasshoppers, Who stretches out the heavens like a curtain, And spreads them out like a tent to dwell in.H3427H2329H776H3427H2284H5186H8064H1852H4969H168H3427 23He brings the princes to nothing; He makes the judges of the earth useless.H5414H7336H6213H8199H776H8414 24Scarcely shall they be planted, Scarcely shall they be sown, Scarcely shall their stock take root in the earth, When He will also blow on them, And they will wither, And the whirlwind will take them away like stubble.H5193H2232H1503H8327H776H5398H3001H5591H5375H7179 25"To whom then will you liken Me, Or to whom shall I be equal?" says the Holy One.H1819H7737H559H6918 26Lift up your eyes on high, And see who has created these things, Who brings out their host by number; He calls them all by name, By the greatness of His might And the strength of His power; Not one is missing.H5375H5869H4791H7200H1254H3318H6635H4557H7121H8034H7230H202H533H3581H376H5737 27Why do you say, O Jacob, And speak, O Israel: "My way is hidden from the LORD, And my just claim is passed over by my God"?H559H3290H1696H3478H1870H5641H3068H4941H5674H430 28Have you not known? Have you not heard? The everlasting God, the LORD, The Creator of the ends of the earth, Neither faints nor is weary. His understanding is unsearchable.H3045H8085H5769H430H3068H1254H7098H776H3286H3021H2714H8394 29He gives power to the weak, And to those who have no might He increases strength.H5414H3581H3287H202H7235H6109 30Even the youths shall faint and be weary, And the young men shall utterly fall,H5288H3286H3021H970H3782H3782 31But those who wait on the LORD Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint.H6960H3068H2498H3581H5927H83H5404H7323H3021H3212H3286
