The wasteland will rejoice and blossom with spring crocuses.

the splendor of our God.

for your God is coming to destroy your enemies.
He is coming to save you.”

Springs will gush forth in the wilderness,

and springs of water will satisfy the thirsty land.
Marsh grass and reeds and rushes will flourish

It will be named the Highway of Holiness.
Evil-minded people will never travel on it.
It will be only for those who walk in God’s ways;
fools will never walk there.

nor any other ferocious beasts.
There will be no other dangers.
Only the redeemed will walk on it.

They will enter Jerusalem[fn] singing,
crowned with everlasting joy.
Sorrow and mourning will disappear,
and they will be filled with joy and gladness.
