10 “For just as the rain and snow come down from heaven,
    and do not return there without watering the earth,
making it bring forth and sprout,
    yielding seed for the sower and bread for eating,[a]
11 so will my message be that goes out of my mouth—
    it won’t return to me empty.
Instead, it will accomplish what I desire,
    and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.

12 “For you will go out in joy,
    and come back[b] with peace;
the mountains and the hills
    will burst into song before you,
        and all the trees in[c] the fields[d] will clap their hands.
