Comfort for God's People 1 zComfort, comfort my people, says your God.
2 aSpeak tenderly to Jerusalem,
and cry to her
that bher warfare1 is ended,
that her iniquity is pardoned,
that she has received from the Lord's hand
double for all her sins.
3 cA voice cries:1
d“In the wilderness prepare the way of the Lord;
emake straight in the desert a highway for our God.
4 fEvery valley shall be lifted up,
and every mountain and hill be made low;
the uneven ground shall become level,
and the rough places a plain.
5 gAnd the glory of the Lord shall be revealed,
and all flesh shall see it together,
hfor the mouth of the Lord has spoken.”
The Word of God Stands Forever 6 A voice says, “Cry!”
And I said,1“What shall I cry?”
iAll flesh is grass,
and all its beauty2 is like the flower of the field.
7 The grass withers, the flower fades
when the breath of the Lord blows on it;
surely the people are grass.
8 jThe grass withers, the flower fades,
but the word of our God will stand forever.
40:21 Or time of service
40:62 Or all its constancy
