6 who made heaven and earth, the sea, and all the things that are in them.
7 He preserves the truth forever. He executes judgment for those who suffer injury. He provides food for the hungry. The Lord releases those who are bound.
8 The Lord enlightens the blind. The Lord sets upright those who have been thrown down. The Lord loves the just.
9 The Lord watches over new arrivals. He will support the orphan and the widow. And he will destroy the ways of sinners.
10 The Lord shall reign forever: your God, O Zion, from generation to generation.
Isaiah 35:1-6a, 10
1 The desolate and impassable land will rejoice, and the place of solitude will exult, and it will flourish like the lily.
2 It will spring up and blossom, and it will exult with rejoicing and praising. The glory of Lebanon has been given to it, with the beauty of Carmel and Sharon. These will see the glory of the Lord and the beauty of our God.
3 Strengthen the lax hands, and confirm the weak knees!
4 Say to the fainthearted: "Take courage and fear not! Behold, your God will bring the vindication of retribution. God himself will arrive to save you."
5 Then the eyes of the blind will be opened, and the ears of the deaf will be cleared.
6 Then the disabled will leap like a buck, and the tongue of the mute will be untied.
10 And the redeemed of the Lord will be converted, and they will return to Zion with praising. And everlasting joy will be upon their heads. They will obtain gladness and rejoicing. For pain and sorrow will flee away.
