Isaiah 40:1; Isaiah 51:3; Isaiah 51:12

Comfort for God's People

40  zComfort, comfort my people, says your God.


For the Lord fcomforts Zion;

he comforts all her waste places

and makes her wilderness like gEden,

her desert like hthe garden of the Lord;

ijoy and gladness will be found in her,

thanksgiving and the voice of song.


12  I, I am he cwho comforts you;

who are you that you are afraid of dman who dies,

of the son of man who is made elike grass,
