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.
15 See, the Lord is coming with fire,(R)
    and his chariots(S) are like a whirlwind;(T)
he will bring down his anger with fury,
    and his rebuke(U) with flames of fire.
16 For with fire(V) and with his sword(W)
    the Lord will execute judgment(X) on all people,
    and many will be those slain(Y) by the Lord.
