21 “Set up road signs;
    put up guideposts.(A)
Take note of the highway,(B)
    the road that you take.
Return,(C) Virgin(D) Israel,
    return to your towns.
22 How long will you wander,(E)
    unfaithful(F) Daughter Israel?
The Lord will create a new thing(G) on earth—
    the woman will return to[a](H) the man.”

23 This is what the Lord Almighty, the God of Israel, says: “When I bring them back from captivity,[b](I) the people in the land of Judah and in its towns will once again use these words: ‘The Lord bless(J) you, you prosperous city,(K) you sacred mountain.’(L) 24 People will live(M) together in Judah and all its towns—farmers and those who move about with their flocks.(N) 25 I will refresh the weary(O) and satisfy the faint.”(P)

26 At this I awoke(Q) and looked around. My sleep had been pleasant to me.
