35IsaiahPassage
1 Let the desert and the dry lands be glad, let the wasteland rejoice and bloom; like the asphodel, The Way of Holiness. Is.35.1-10          
2 let it burst into flower, let it rejoice and sing for joy. The glory of Lebanon is bestowed on it, the splendour of Carmel and Sharon; then they will see the glory of Yahweh, the splendour of our God.            
3 Strengthen all weary hands, steady all trembling knees            
4 and say to the faint-hearted, 'Be strong! Do not be afraid. Here is your God, vengeance is coming, divine retribution; he is coming to save you.'            
5 Then the eyes of the blind will be opened, the ears of the deaf unsealed,            
6 then the lame will leap like a deer and the tongue of the dumb sing for joy; for water will gush in the desert and streams in the wastelands,            
7 the parched ground will become a marsh and the thirsty land springs of water; the lairs where the jackals used to live will become plots of reed and papyrus.            
8 And through it will run a road for them and a highway which will be called the Sacred Way; the unclean will not be allowed to use it; He will be the one to use this road, the fool will not stray along it.            
9 No lion will be there, no ferocious beast set foot on it, nothing of the sort be found; it will be used by the redeemed.            
10 For those whom Yahweh has ransomed will return, they will come to Zion shouting for joy, their heads crowned with joy unending; rejoicing and gladness will escort them and sorrow and sighing will take flight.
