10 “Rejoice(A) with Jerusalem and be glad for her,
    all you who love(B) her;
rejoice greatly with her,
    all you who mourn(C) over her.
11 For you will nurse(D) and be satisfied
    at her comforting breasts;(E)
you will drink deeply
    and delight in her overflowing abundance.”(F)

12 For this is what the Lord says:

“I will extend peace(G) to her like a river,(H)
    and the wealth(I) of nations like a flooding stream;
you will nurse and be carried(J) on her arm
    and dandled on her knees.
13 As a mother comforts her child,(K)
    so will I comfort(L) you;
    and you will be comforted over Jerusalem.”

14 When you see this, your heart will rejoice(M)
    and you will flourish(N) like grass;
the hand(O) of the Lord will be made known to his servants,(P)
    but his fury(Q) will be shown to his foes.
