THE BOOK OF THE PROPHET
Isaiah 35 ©
The great joy of all creatures with the church of God for the redemption by Christ, v. 1, etc. An exhortation to ministers to comfort poor dejected souls herewith, 3. The miracles which the Messiah would do, 5. A further account of the prosperity and peace of the people of God, 8.
THE1 wilderness and 2the solitary place shall be glad 3for them; and the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose.
4It shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice even with joy and singing: 5the glory of Lebanon shall be given unto it, the excellency of Carmel and Sharon, 6they shall see the glory of the LORD, and the excellency of our God.
¶ 7Strengthena ye the weak hands, and confirm 8the feeble knees.
Say to them that are 9of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, 10your God will come 11with vengeance, even God with a recompence; he will come and 12save you.
13Then the eyes ofb the blind shall be opened, and the ears ofc the deaf shall be unstopped.
Then shall thed lame man leap as an hart, and thee tongue of the dumb sing: for in the wilderness shall 14watersf15break out, and streams in the desert.
And the parched ground shall become a pool, and the thirsty land springs of water: in the habitation of dragons, 16where each lay, 17shall be grass with reeds and rushes.
And an highway shall be 18there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; 19the unclean shall not pass over it; but 20it shall be 21for those: 22the wayfaring men, though 23fools, 24shall not err therein.
25No lion shall be there, 26nor any ravenous beast shall go up thereon, it shall not be found there; but the redeemed shall walk there:
And 27the ransomed of the LORD 28shall return, and come 29to Zion with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads: they shall 30obtain joyg and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.
