New International Version
5 Then will the eyes of the blind be opened(G)
and the ears of the deaf(H) unstopped.
6 Then will the lame(I) leap like a deer,(J)
and the mute tongue(K) shout for joy.(L)
Water will gush forth in the wilderness
and streams(M) in the desert.
7 The burning sand will become a pool,
the thirsty ground(N) bubbling springs.(O)
In the haunts where jackals(P) once lay,
grass and reeds(Q) and papyrus will grow.
8 And a highway(R) will be there;
it will be called the Way of Holiness;(S)
it will be for those who walk on that Way.
The unclean(T) will not journey on it;
wicked fools will not go about on it.
9 No lion(U) will be there,
nor any ravenous beast;(V)
they will not be found there.
But only the redeemed(W) will walk there,
10 and those the Lord has rescued(X) will return.
They will enter Zion with singing;(Y)
everlasting joy(Z) will crown their heads.
Gladness(AA) and joy will overtake them,
and sorrow and sighing will flee away.(AB)
