10 (A)“For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven
    and do not return there but water the earth,
making it bring forth and sprout,
    (B)giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater,
11 so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth;
    it shall not return to me empty,
but (C)it shall accomplish that which I purpose,
    and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it.

12 (D)“For you shall go out in joy
    and be led forth in peace;
(E)the mountains and the hills before you
    shall break forth into singing,
    and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.
13 (F)Instead of the thorn shall come up the cypress;
    instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle;
and it shall make a name for the Lord,
    an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.”
