CEB 1 Sing, barren woman who has borne no child; break forth into singing and cry out, you who were never in labor, for the children of the wife who has been deserted will be more numerous than the children of the married, says the LORD. NRS 1 Sing, O barren one who did not bear; burst into song and shout, you who have not been in labor! For the children of the desolate woman will be more than the children of her that is married, says the Lord. CEB 2 Enlarge the site of your tent, and stretch out the drapes of your dwellings; don't hold back. Lengthen your tent ropes and strengthen your stakes.

CEB 5 The one marrying you is the one who made you— the LORD of heavenly forces is his name. The one redeeming you is the holy one of Israel, the one called the God of all the earth.

CEB 6 As an abandoned and dejected woman the LORD has summoned you; as a young wife when she is rejected, says your God.

CEB 9 These are like the days of Noah for me, when I promised that Noah's waters would never again cover the earth. Likewise I promise not to rage against you or rebuke you. NRS 9 This is like the days of Noah to me: Just as I swore that the waters of Noah would never again go over the earth, so I have sworn that I will not be angry with you and will not rebuke you. CEB 10 The mountains may shift, and the hills may be shaken, but my faithful love won't shift from you, and my covenant of peace won't be shaken, says the LORD, the one who pities you.

CEB 13 All your children will be disciples of the LORD— I will make peace abound for your children. NRS 13 All your children shall be taught by the Lord, and great shall be the prosperity of your children. CEB 14 You will be firmly founded in righteousness. You will stay far from oppression because you won't fear, far from terror because it won't come near you. NRS 14 In righteousness you shall be established; you shall be far from oppression, for you shall not fear; and from terror, for it shall not come near you. CEB 15 If anyone attacks you, it's none of my doing. Whoever attacks you will fall because of you.

CEB 17 No weapon fashioned against you will succeed, and you may condemn every tongue that disputes with you. This is the heritage of the LORD's servants, whose righteousness comes from me, says the LORD. NRS 17 No weapon that is fashioned against you shall prosper, and you shall confute every tongue that rises against you in judgment. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord and their vindication from me, says the Lord.
