till the Spirit1 is poured upon us from on high, and the desert becomes a fertile field,2 and the fertile field seems like a forest.316
Justice4 will dwell in the desert5 and righteousness6 live in the fertile field.
The fruit of righteousness7 will be peace;8 the effect of righteousness will be quietness and confidence9 forever.
My people will live in peaceful10 dwelling places, in secure homes,11 in undisturbed places of rest.1219
Though hail13 flattens the forest14 and the city is leveled15 completely,
how blessed you will be, sowing16 your seed by every stream,17 and letting your cattle and donkeys range free.18
