Isaiah 41:18-19New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

18 I will open up rivers on the bare heights,
    and fountains in the broad valleys;
I will turn the wilderness into a marshland,
    and the dry ground into springs of water.
19 In the wilderness I will plant the cedar,
    acacia, myrtle, and olive;
In the wasteland I will set the cypress,
    together with the plane tree and the pine,

Isaiah 55:12-13New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

12 Yes, in joy you shall go forth,
    in peace you shall be brought home;
Mountains and hills shall break out in song before you,
    all trees of the field shall clap their hands.
13 In place of the thornbush, the cypress shall grow,
    instead of nettles,[a] the myrtle.
This shall be to the Lord’s renown,
    as an everlasting sign that shall not fail.
