The Lord's Comfort for Zion

51 (A)“Listen to me, you who pursue righteousness,
    you who seek the Lord:
look to the rock from which you were hewn,
    and to the quarry from which you were dug.
Look to Abraham your father
    and to Sarah who bore you;
for (B)he was but one when I called him,
    that I might bless him and multiply him.

(A)My righteousness draws near,
    my salvation has gone out,
    and my arms will judge the peoples;
(B)the coastlands hope for me,
    and for my arm they wait.
(C)Lift up your eyes to the heavens,
    and look at the earth beneath;
(D)for the heavens vanish like smoke,
    the earth will wear out like a garment,
    and they who dwell in it will die in like manner;[a]
(E)but my salvation will be forever,
    and my righteousness will never be dismayed.
