Isaiah 40:1–3 (Listen)

Comfort for God’s People


40:1   Comfort, comfort my people, says your God.
  Speak tenderly to Jerusalem,
    and cry to her
  that her warfare1 is ended,
    that her iniquity is pardoned,
  that she has received from the LORD’s hand
    double for all her sins.


  A voice cries:2
  “In the wilderness prepare the way of the LORD;
    make straight in the desert a highway for our God.
