NLT 1 “Sing, O childless woman, you who have never given birth! Break into loud and joyful song, O Jerusalem, you who have never been in labor. For the desolate woman now has more children than the woman who lives with her husband,” says the LORD . NIV 1 "Sing, O barren woman, you who never bore a child; burst into song, shout for joy, you who were never in labor; because more are the children of the desolate woman than of her who has a husband," says the LORD. NLT 2 “Enlarge your house; build an addition. Spread out your home, and spare no expense! NIV 2 "Enlarge the place of your tent, stretch your tent curtains wide, do not hold back; lengthen your cords, strengthen your stakes. NLT 3 For you will soon be bursting at the seams.

NIV 8 In a surge of anger I hid my face from you for a moment, but with everlasting kindness I will have compassion on you," says the LORD your Redeemer. NLT 9 “Just as I swore in the time of Noah that I would never again let a flood cover the earth, so now I swear that I will never again be angry and punish you. NIV 9 "To me this is like the days of Noah, when I swore that the waters of Noah would never again cover the earth. So now I have sworn not to be angry with you, never to rebuke you again. NLT 10 For the mountains may move and the hills disappear, but even then my faithful love for you will remain. My covenant of blessing will never be broken,” says the LORD , who has mercy on you.

NLT 12 I will make your towers of sparkling rubies, your gates of shining gems, and your walls of precious stones. NIV 12 I will make your battlements of rubies, your gates of sparkling jewels, and all your walls of precious stones. NLT 13 I will teach all your children, and they will enjoy great peace. NIV 13 All your sons will be taught by the LORD, and great will be your children's peace. NLT 14 You will be secure under a government that is just and fair. Your enemies will stay far away. You will live in peace, and terror will not come near. NIV 14 In righteousness you will be established: Tyranny will be far from you; you will have nothing to fear. Terror will be far removed; it will not come near you. NLT 15 If any nation comes to fight you, it is not because I sent them. Whoever attacks you will go down in defeat.

NLT 16 “I have created the blacksmith who fans the coals beneath the forge and makes the weapons of destruction. And I have created the armies that destroy. NIV 16 "See, it is I who created the blacksmith who fans the coals into flame and forges a weapon fit for its work. And it is I who have created the destroyer to work havoc; NLT 17 But in that coming day no weapon turned against you will succeed. You will silence every voice raised up to accuse you. These benefits are enjoyed by the servants of the LORD ; their vindication will come from me. I, the LORD , have spoken! NIV 17 no weapon forged against you will prevail, and you will refute every tongue that accuses you. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and this is their vindication from me," declares the LORD.
