13 (A)Sing, O heavens!
Be joyful, O earth!
And break out in singing, O mountains!
For the Lord has comforted His people,
And will have mercy on His afflicted.

God Will Remember Zion

14 (B)But Zion said, “The Lord has forsaken me,
And my Lord has forgotten me.”

15 “Can(C) a woman forget her nursing child,
[a]And not have compassion on the son of her womb?
Surely they may forget,
(D)Yet I will not forget you.
16 See, (E)I have inscribed you on the palms of My hands;
Your walls are continually before Me.
17 Your [b]sons shall make haste;
Your destroyers and those who laid you waste
Shall go away from you.
18 (F)Lift up your eyes, look around and see;
All these gather together and come to you.
As I live,” says the Lord,
“You shall surely clothe yourselves with them all (G)as an ornament,
And bind them on you as a bride does.
