Sing for joy, O heavens, and earth, O earth;
break forth, O mountains, into singing!
For the LORD has comforted his people, and will have compassion on his afflicted.
But Zion said, "The LORD has forsaken me, my Lord has forgotten me."
"Can a woman forget her sucking child,
that she should have no compassion
on the son of her womb?"
Even these may forget,
yet I will not forget you.
Behold, I have graven you on the
palms of my hands;
your walls are continually before me.
Your builders outstrip your destroyers,
and those who laid you waste go forth
Lift up your eyes round about and see;
they all gather, they come to you.
As I live, says the LORD,
you shall put them all on as
you shall bind them on as a bride does.
