International Standard Version
14 “I have certainly[a] stayed silent for a long time;
I’ve kept still and held myself back.
Now, like a woman giving birth, I’ll cry out.
All of a sudden I’ll gasp and pant.
15 I’ll devastate the mountains and hills,
and dry up all their vegetation;
I’ll turn rivers into islands,
and dry up the ponds.
16 I’ll help the blind walk,
even[b] on a road they do not know;
I’ll guide them
in directions[c] they do not know.
I’ll turn the dark places[d] into light in front of them,
and the rough places into level ground.
These are the things I will do,
and I won’t abandon them.
