The Lord Will Be Gracious

18 Therefore the LORD 1waits to be gracious to you, and therefore he 2exalts himself to show mercy to you. For the LORD is a God of justice; 3blessed are all those who wait for him.
19 For a people shall dwell 4in Zion, in Jerusalem; you shall weep no more. He will surely be gracious to you at the sound of your cry. As soon as he hears it, he answers you.
20 And though the Lord give you the 5bread of adversity and the 6water of affliction, 7yet your Teacher will not hide himself anymore, but your eyes shall see your Teacher.
21 8And your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, "This is 9the way, walk in it," when you turn to the right or when you turn to the left.
