Isaiah 51:1-3 World English Bible (WEB)

51 “Listen to me, you who follow after righteousness,
    you who seek Yahweh:
look to the rock you were cut from,
    and to the quarry you were dug from.
Look to Abraham your father,
    and to Sarah who bore you;
for when he was but one I called him,
    and I blessed him,
    and made him many.
For Yahweh has comforted Zion.
    He has comforted all her waste places,
    and has made her wilderness like Eden,
    and her desert like the garden of Yahweh.
Joy and gladness will be found therein,
    thanksgiving, and the voice of melody.

Isaiah 51:1-3 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

Israel Exhorted

51 Listen to me, you who pursue righteousness,
Who seek the Lord:
Look to the rock from which you were hewn
And to the [a]quarry from which you were dug.
“Look to Abraham your father
And to Sarah who gave birth to you in pain;
When he was but one I called him,
Then I blessed him and multiplied him.”
Indeed, the Lord will comfort Zion;
He will comfort all her waste places.
And her wilderness He will make like Eden,
And her desert like the garden of the Lord;
Joy and gladness will be found in her,
Thanksgiving and sound of a melody.
