God Promises to Help His People

14 God says,

“For a long time I kept silent;
    I did not answer my people.
But now the time to act has come;
    I cry out like a woman in labor.
15 I will destroy the hills and mountains
    and dry up the grass and trees.
I will turn the river valleys into deserts[a]
    and dry up the pools of water.

16 “I will lead my blind people
    by roads they have never traveled.
I will turn their darkness into light
    and make rough country smooth before them.
These are my promises,
    and I will keep them without fail.
