26 when he made a decree for the rain
and wa way for the lightning of the thunder,
26 to bring rain on pa land where no man is,
on qthe desert in which there is no man,

or who has begotten the drops of dew?
The Restoration for Judah and Israel
10 Ask rain bfrom the Lord
in the season of cthe spring rain,
from the Lord dwho makes the storm clouds,
and ehe will give them showers of rain,
to everyone the vegetation in the field.
2 For fthe household gods gutter nonsense,
and the diviners see lies;
hthey tell false dreams
and give empty consolation.
Therefore ithe people wander like sheep;
they are afflicted for lack of a shepherd.
