Holman Christian Standard Bible
13 for the ground of my people
growing thorns and briers,(A)
indeed, for every joyous house in the joyful city.
14 For the palace will be forsaken,
the busy city abandoned.
The hill and the watchtower will become
barren places forever,
the joy of wild donkeys,
and a pasture for flocks,
15 until the Spirit from heaven is poured out on us.(B)
Then the desert will become an orchard,
and the orchard will seem like a forest.(C)
