4 Bring back our captivity, O Lord, As the streams in the South.
5 Those who sow in tears Shall reap in joy. 6 He who continually goes [c]forth weeping, Bearing [d]seed for sowing, Shall doubtless come again [e]with rejoicing, Bringing his sheaves with him.
54 “Sing, O barren, You who have not borne! Break forth into singing, and cry aloud, You who have not labored with child! For more are the children of the desolate Than the children of the married woman,” says the Lord. 2 “Enlarge the place of your tent, And let them stretch out the curtains of your dwellings; Do not spare; Lengthen your cords, And strengthen your stakes. 3 For you shall expand to the right and to the left, And your descendants will inherit the nations, And make the desolate cities inhabited.
