Your eyes will see the king1 in his beauty2 and view a land that stretches afar.318
In your thoughts you will ponder the former terror:4 "Where is that chief officer? Where is the one who took the revenue? Where is the officer in charge of the towers?5"
You will see those arrogant people6 no more, those people of an obscure speech, with their strange, incomprehensible tongue.720
Look upon Zion,8 the city of our festivals; your eyes will see Jerusalem, a peaceful abode,9 a tent10 that will not be moved;11 its stakes will never be pulled up, nor any of its ropes broken.
There the LORD will be our Mighty12 One. It will be like a place of broad rivers and streams.13 No galley with oars will ride them, no mighty ship14 will sail them.
For the LORD is our judge,15 the LORD is our lawgiver,16 the LORD is our king;17 it is he who will save18 us.
Your rigging hangs loose: The mast is not held secure, the sail is not spread. Then an abundance of spoils will be divided and even the lame19 will carry off plunder.2024
No one living in Zion will say, "I am ill";21 and the sins of those who dwell there will be forgiven.22
