51 If you want to do right and obey the Lord, follow Abraham’s example. He was the rock from which you were chipped. 2 God chose Abraham and Sarah to be your ancestors. The Lord blessed Abraham, and from that one man came many descendants.
3 Though Zion is in ruins, the Lord will bring comfort, and the city will be as lovely as the garden of Eden that he provided. Then Zion will celebrate; it will be thankful and sing joyful songs.
The Lord’s Victory Will Last
4 The Lord says: You are my people and nation! So pay attention to me. My teaching will cause justice to shine like a light for every nation. 5 Those who live across the sea are eagerly waiting for me to rescue them. I am strong and ready; soon I will come to save and to rule all nations.
6 Look closely at the sky! Stare at the earth. The sky will vanish like smoke; the earth will wear out like clothes. Everyone on this earth will die like flies. But my victory will last; my saving power never ends.
