10 (A)“Rejoice with Jerusalem, and be glad for her,
    all you who love her;
rejoice with her in joy,
    all you who mourn over her;
11 that you may nurse and be satisfied
    from her consoling breast;
that you may drink deeply with delight
    from her glorious abundance.”[a]

12 For thus says the Lord:
(B)“Behold, I will extend peace to her like a river,
    and the glory of the nations like an overflowing stream;
and (C)you shall nurse, you shall be carried upon her hip,
    and bounced upon her knees.
13 As one whom his mother comforts,
    so (D)I will comfort you;
    you shall be comforted in Jerusalem.
14 You shall see, and your heart shall rejoice;
    (E)your bones shall flourish like the grass;
and (F)the hand of the Lord shall be known to his servants,
    and he shall show his indignation against his enemies.

Final Judgment and Glory of the Lord

15 “For behold, (G)the Lord will come in fire,
    and (H)his chariots like the whirlwind,
to render his anger in fury,
    and his rebuke with flames of fire.
16 For (I)by fire (J)will the Lord enter into judgment,
    and by his sword, with all flesh;
    and those slain by the Lord shall be many.
