Yeshayah/Isaiah 54:1 - 10

Chapter 54

1 Sing out, O barren one, who has not given birth, break out into glad song and be jubilant, O one who had no labor pains, for the children of the desolate [Jerusalem] outnumber the children of the inhabited [city] — said Hashem.  2 Broaden the place of your tent and stretch out the curtains of your dwellings, stint not; lengthen your cords and strengthen your pegs.  3 For southward and northward you shall spread out mightily, your offspring will inherit nations, and they will settle desolate cites.  4 Fear not, for you will not be shamed, do not feel humiliated for you will not be mortified; for you will forget the shame of your youth, and the mortification of your widowhood you will remember no more.  5 For your Master is your Maker — Hashem, Master of Legions is His Name; your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel — God of all the world shall He be called.  6 For like a wife who had been forsaken and of melancholy spirit will Hashem have called you, and like a wife of one's youth who had become despised — said your God.  7 For but a brief moment have I forsaken you, and with abundant mercy shall I gather you in.  8 With a slight wrath have I concealed My countenance from you for a moment, but with eternal kindness shall I show you mercy, said your Redeemer, Hashem.

9 For like the waters of Noah shall this be to Me - as I have sworn never again to pass the waters of Noah over the earth, so have I sworn not to be wrathful with you or rebuke you.  10 For the mountains may be moved and the hills may falter, but My kindness shall not be removed from you and My covenant of peace shall not falter — says the One Who shows you mercy, Hashem.
