Thus saith the Lord, the heaven is
my throne, and the earth is my footstool.
Where is that ye build unto me? And where
is the place of my rest?
Rejoice ye with Jerusalem, and be glad with
her, all ye that love her. Rejoice with her all
ye that mourn for her.
For thus saith the Lord, Behold I will extend
peace to her, like a river, and the glory of
the Gentiles, like a flowing stream...
As one who his mother comforteth, so will I
comfort you. And ye shall be comforted in
And when ye see this, your heart will rejoice,
and your bones shall flourish like an herb,
and the hand of the Lord shall be known
toward his servants, and his indignation
toward his enemies.
