Therefore the Lord GOD of hosts, The Mighty One of Israel, declares, "Ah, I will be relieved of My adversaries And avenge Myself on My foes.
Then you will say on that day, "I will give thanks to You, O LORD ; For although You were angry with me, Your anger is turned away, And You comfort me.
Therefore I say, "Turn your eyes away from me, Let me weep bitterly, Do not try to comfort me concerning the destruction of the daughter of my people."
"Comfort, O comfort My people," says your God.
Shout for joy, O heavens! And rejoice, O earth! Break forth into joyful shouting, O mountains! For the LORD has comforted His people And will have compassion on His afflicted.
Indeed, the LORD will comfort Zion; He will comfort all her waste places. And her wilderness He will make like Eden, And her desert like the garden of the LORD ; Joy and gladness will be found in her, Thanksgiving and sound of a melody.
"I, even I, am He who comforts you. Who are you that you are afraid of man who dies And of the son of man who is made like grass,
These two things have befallen you; Who will mourn for you? The devastation and destruction, famine and sword; How shall I comfort you?
Break forth, shout joyfully together, You waste places of Jerusalem; For the LORD has comforted His people, He has redeemed Jerusalem.
"O afflicted one, storm-tossed, and not comforted, Behold, I will set your stones in antimony, And your foundations I will lay in sapphires.
"Among the smooth stones of the ravine Is your portion, they are your lot; Even to them you have poured out a drink offering, You have made a grain offering. Shall I relent concerning these things?
To proclaim the favorable year of the LORD And the day of vengeance of our God; To comfort all who mourn,
"As one whom his mother comforts, so I will comfort you; And you will be comforted in Jerusalem."
