Isaiah 40:3-5 World English Bible (WEB)

The voice of one who calls out,

    “Prepare the way of Yahweh in the wilderness!
    Make a level highway in the desert for our God.
Every valley shall be exalted,
    and every mountain and hill shall be made low.
    The uneven shall be made level,
    and the rough places a plain.
Yahweh’s glory shall be revealed,
    and all flesh shall see it together;
    for the mouth of Yahweh has spoken it.”
