    the shroud(A) that enfolds all peoples,(B)

    never again will they thirst.(F)
The sun will not beat down on them,’[a]
    nor any scorching heat.(G)

    will be their shepherd;(H)
‘he will lead them to springs of living water.’[b](I)
    ‘And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.’[c](J)
