"Listen1 to me, you who pursue righteousness2 and who seek3 the LORD: Look to the rock4 from which you were cut and to the quarry from which you were hewn;
look to Abraham,5 your father, and to Sarah, who gave you birth. When I called him he was but one, and I blessed him and made him many.63
The LORD will surely comfort7 Zion8 and will look with compassion on all her ruins;9 he will make her deserts like Eden,10 her wastelands11 like the garden of the LORD. Joy and gladness12 will be found in her, thanksgiving13 and the sound of singing.
