Isaiah 40:1-5View Full Chapter
Comfort for God’s People 1Comfort, comfort my people, says your God.
2Speak tenderly to Jerusalem, and proclaim to her that her hard service has been completed, that her sin has been paid for, that she has received from the LORD ’s hand double for all her sins.
3A voice of one calling: “In the wilderness prepare the way for the LORD
4Every valley shall be raised up, every mountain and hill made low; the rough ground shall become level, the rugged places a plain.
5And the glory of the LORD will be revealed, and all people will see it together. For the mouth of the LORD has spoken.”
