(A)The cedars (B)in the garden of God could not rival it,
    nor the fir trees equal its boughs;
neither were the plane trees
    like its branches;
no tree (C)in the garden of God
    was its equal in beauty.
I made it beautiful
    in the mass of its branches,
and all the trees of (D)Eden envied it,
    that were in the garden of God.

and makes her wilderness like (B)Eden,
    her desert like (C)the garden of the Lord;
(D)joy and gladness will be found in her,
    thanksgiving and the voice of song.
