13 The Lord will march out like a champion,(A)
    like a warrior(B) he will stir up his zeal;(C)
with a shout(D) he will raise the battle cry
    and will triumph over his enemies.(E)

14 “For a long time I have kept silent,(F)
    I have been quiet and held myself back.(G)
But now, like a woman in childbirth,
    I cry out, I gasp and pant.(H)
15 I will lay waste(I) the mountains(J) and hills
    and dry up all their vegetation;
I will turn rivers into islands
    and dry up(K) the pools.
16 I will lead(L) the blind(M) by ways they have not known,
    along unfamiliar paths I will guide them;
I will turn the darkness into light(N) before them
    and make the rough places smooth.(O)
These are the things I will do;
    I will not forsake(P) them.
17 But those who trust in idols,
    who say to images, ‘You are our gods,’(Q)
    will be turned back in utter shame.(R)
