Isaiah 29:17 - 29:21

The Afflicted Will Rejoice

Is it not yet just a little while
Before Lebanon will be turned into a fruitful orchard,
And the fruitful orchard will be counted as a forest?
On that day the deaf will hear words of a book,
And out of darkness and thick darkness the eyes of the blind will see.
The afflicted also will increase their gladness in Yahweh,
And the needy of mankind will rejoice in the Holy One of Israel.
For the ruthless will come to an end and the scoffer will be finished,
Indeed all who are watching out to do evil will be cut off;
Who cause a person to sin by a word,
And ensnare him who reproves at the gate,
And defraud the one in the right with meaningless arguments.
