Say to those hurtful heats, “Be strong, do not fear; your God will come, he will come with vengeance; with divine retribution he will come to save you.”
Then willl the eyes of the blind be opened and the ears of the deaf unstopped.
Then the lame leap like a deer, and the mute tongue shout for joy. Water will gush forth in the wilderness and streams in the desert.
The burning sand will become a pool, the thirsty ground bubbling springs. In the haunts where jackals once lay, grass and reeds and papyrus will grow.
