19 Your dead shall live; their corpses[a] shall rise.
    Those who dwell in the dust will awake and shout for joy![b]
For your dew is a radiant dew,
    and the earth will give birth to those long dead.[c](A)

20 Come, my people, enter your chambers,
    and shut your doors behind you;
hide yourselves for a little while

    to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity;
the earth will disclose the blood shed on it
    and will no longer cover its slain.(C)
