Go to Commentary on Isa 54

 1 “Sing, O barren one, who did not bear;

 break forth into singing and cry out loud,

 you who have not been in labor with child;

 for more are the children of the desolate

 than the children of the married wife,”

 says Yahweh.


 2 “Enlarge the place of your tent

 and let them stretch out the curtains of your habitations;

 do not hold back;

 lengthen your cords

 and strengthen your tent stakes.


 3 For you will spread out on the right hand and on the left,

 and your seed will possess the nations,

 and make the desolate cities to be inhabited.


Do not be afraid, for you will not be put to shame;

 do not feel humiliated, for you will not be disgraced;

 for you will forget the shame of your youth,

 and the reproach of your widowhood

 you will remember no more.


 5 For your Maker is your husband;

 Yahweh of Armies is his name,

 and the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer;

 he will be called the God of all the earth.


 6 For Yahweh has called you

 as a wife forsaken and grieved in spirit,

 even a wife of youth when she is rejected,”

 says your God.


 7 “For a small moment have I forsaken you,

 but with great mercies I will gather you.


 8 In overflowing wrath

 I hid my face from you for a moment,

 but with everlasting loving kindness

 I will have mercy on you,”

 says Yahweh your Redeemer.


 9 “For this is like the waters of Noah to me;

 for as I have sworn that the waters of Noah

 will no more go over the earth,

 so have I sworn that I will not be angry with you,

 nor rebuke you.


 10 For the mountains may depart

 and the hills may be removed,

 but my covenant faithfulness will not depart from you,

 nor will my covenant of peace be removed,”

 says Yahweh who has mercy on you.


“You afflicted,

 tossed with storms and not comforted,

 behold, I will set your stones in beautiful colors

 and lay your foundations with sapphires.


 12 I will make your pinnacles of jewels

 and your gates of sparkling jewels,

 and all your walls of precious stones.


 13 All your children will be taught of Yahweh,

 and great will be the peace of your children.


 14 In righteousness you will be established;

 you will be far from oppression,

 for you will not be afraid,

 and from terror,

 for it will not come near you.


 15 Behold, they may gather together,

 but not by me;

 whoever will gather together against you

 will fall because of you.


 16 Behold, I have created the smith

 who blows the fire of coals

 and brings forth a weapon for its purpose,

 and I have created the destroyer to ruin.


 17 No weapon that is formed against you

 will prevail;

 and you will condemn every tongue

 that rises against you in judgment.

 This is the heritage of the servants of Yahweh,

 and their righteousness that is of me,”

 says Yahweh.
