Comfort ye, comfort ye my people, saith
your God. Speak ye comfortably to Jerusalem, and cry unto her, that her warfare is
accomplished, that her iniquity is pardoned: for she hath received of the LORD'S hand
double for all her sins. The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the
way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God. Every valley shall be
exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made
straight, and the rough places plain: And the glory of the LORD shall be revealed, and all
flesh shall see it together: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.
The voice said, Cry. And he said, What shall I cry? All flesh is grass, and
all the goodliness thereof is as the flower of the field: The grass withereth, the
flower fadeth: because the spirit of the LORD bloweth upon it: surely the people is grass.
The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever. O
Zion, that bringest good tidings, get thee up into the high mountain; O Jerusalem, that
bringest good tidings, lift up thy voice with strength; lift it up, be not afraid;
say unto the cities of Judah, Behold your God! Behold, the Lord GOD will come with strong hand,
and his arm shall rule for him: behold, his reward is with him, and his work before
him. He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm, and
carry them in his bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young.
