Isaiah 35 (WEBP)

[1] The wilderness and the dry land will be glad. The desert will rejoice and blossom like a rose.
[2] It will blossom abundantly, and rejoice even with joy and singing. Lebanon’s glory will be given to it, the excellence of Carmel and Sharon. They will see Yahweh’s glory, the excellence of our God.
[3] Strengthen the weak hands, and make the feeble knees firm.
[4] Tell those who have a fearful heart, “Be strong! Don’t be afraid! Behold, your God will come with vengeance, God’s retribution. He will come and save you.
[5] Then the eyes of the blind will be opened, and the ears of the deaf will be unstopped.
[6] Then the lame man will leap like a deer, and the tongue of the mute will sing; for waters will break out in the wilderness, and streams in the desert.
[7] The burning sand will become a pool, and the thirsty ground springs of water. Grass with reeds and rushes will be in the habitation of jackals, where they lay.
[8] A highway will be there, a road, and it will be called “The Holy Way”. The unclean shall not pass over it, but it will be for those who walk in the Way. Wicked fools shall not go there.
[9] No lion will be there, nor will any ravenous animal go up on it. They will not be found there; but the redeemed will walk there.
[10] Then Yahweh’s ransomed ones will return, and come with singing to Zion; and everlasting joy will be on their heads. They will obtain gladness and joy, and sorrow and sighing will flee away.”

Young’s Literal Translation

Isaiah 35 (YLT)

[1] They joy from the wilderness and dry place, And rejoice doth the desert, and flourish as the rose,
[2] Flourishing it doth flourish, and rejoice, Yea, with joy and singing, The honour of Lebanon hath been given to it, The beauty of Carmel and Sharon, They-they see the honour of Jehovah, The majesty of our God.
[3] Strengthen ye the feeble hands, Yea, the stumbling knees strengthen.
[4] Say to the hastened of heart, ‘Be strong, Fear not, lo, your God; vengeance cometh, The recompence of God, He Himself doth come and save you.’
[5] Then opened are eyes of the blind, And ears of the deaf are unstopped,
[6] Then leap as a hart doth the lame, And sing doth the tongue of the dumb, For broken up in a wilderness have been waters, And streams in a desert.
[7] And the mirage hath become a pond, And the thirsty land fountains of waters, In the habitation of dragons, Its place of couching down, a court for reed and rush.
[8] And a highway hath been there, and a way, And the ‘way of holiness’ is called to it, Not pass over it doth the unclean, And He Himself is by them, Whoso is going in the way-even fools err not.
[9] No lion is there, yea, a destructive beast Ascendeth it not, it is not found there, And walked have the redeemed,
[10] And the ransomed of Jehovah return, And have entered Zion with singing. And joy age-during on their head, Joy and gladness they attain, And fled away have sorrow and sighing!
