The desert will rejoice and blossom like a rose.
and make firm the feeble knees.
and the ears of the deaf will be unstopped.
and the tongue of the mute will sing,
for waters will break out in the wilderness,
and streams in the desert.
and the thirsty ground will become springs of water.
In the habitation of jackals—where they lay—
will be grass, with reeds and papyrus.
and it will be called The Holy Way.
The unclean will not travel on it,
but it will be for those who walk in God’s way.
Wicked fools will not go there.
nor will any ravenous animal go up on it.
They will not be found there,
but the redeemed will walk there.
and will come to Zion with singing,
and everlasting joy will be on their heads.
Joy and gladness will overtake them,
and sorrow and sighing will flee away.
