13 Shout for joy, you heavens; rejoice, you earth; burst into song, you
mountains!For the Lord comforts his people and will have compassion on
his afflicted ones.14 But Zion said, “The Lord has forsaken me, the Lord
has forgotten me.”15 “Can a mother forget the baby at her breast
and have no compassion on the child she has borne?Though she may forget,
I will not forget you!16 See, I have engraved you on the palms of my
hands; your walls are ever before me.17 Your children hasten back, and
those who laid you waste depart from you.18 Lift up your eyes and look
around; all your children gather and come to you.As surely as I live,” declares
the Lord,“you will wear them all as ornaments; you will put them
on, like a bride.
