14 “I have held My peace a long time,
I have been still and restrained Myself.
Now like a woman in labor I groan,
    gasping and panting at once.
15 I will lay waste mountains and hills,
    and dry up all their vegetation.
I will turn the rivers into islands,
    and dry up the pools.
16 I will bring the blind by a way they do not know.
in paths they have not known, I will guide them.
I will turn darkness before them to light
    and the rough places smooth.
These are the things I will do,
    and I will not forsake them.

14 “For a long time I have kept silent,(A)
    I have been quiet and held myself back.(B)
But now, like a woman in childbirth,
    I cry out, I gasp and pant.(C)
15 I will lay waste(D) the mountains(E) and hills
    and dry up all their vegetation;
I will turn rivers into islands
    and dry up(F) the pools.
16 I will lead(G) the blind(H) by ways they have not known,
    along unfamiliar paths I will guide them;
I will turn the darkness into light(I) before them
    and make the rough places smooth.(J)
These are the things I will do;
    I will not forsake(K) them.
