Isaiah 35 ©
The joyful and flourishing state of Christ's kingdom. The weak are encouraged with a view of the blessings of the gospel.
THE awilderness and the solitary place shall be glad for them; and the desert bshall rejoice, and cblossom as the rose.
It shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice even with joy and singing: dthe glory of Lebanon shall be given unto it, the excellency of Carmel and Sharon, they shall see the glory of the LORD, and the excellency of our God.
Then the geyes of the blind shall be opened, and hthe ears of the deaf shall be unstopped.
Then shall the ilame man leap as an *hart, and the jtongue of the dumb sing: for in the wilderness shall kwaters break out, and streams in the desert.
And man highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; nthe unclean shall not pass over it; 3but it shall be for those: the owayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein.
And the qransomed of the LORD shall return, and rcome to Zion with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads: they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.
