Isaiah   29: 17-24

29:17 In not more than a little while and a brief time, Lebanon will be turned into a fruitful field, and a fruitful field will be considered to be a forest.
29:18 And in that day, the deaf will hear the words of a book, and out of darkness and obscurity the eyes of the blind will see.
29:19 And the meek will increase their rejoicing in the Lord, and the poor among men will exult in the Holy One of Israel.
29:20 For the one who was prevailing has failed, the one who was mocking has been consumed, and all those who were standing guard over iniquity have been cut down.
29:21 For they caused men to sin by a word, and they supplanted him who argued against them at the gates, and they turned away from justice in vain.
29:22 Because of this, thus says the Lord, he who has redeemed Abraham, to the house of Jacob: From now on, Jacob will not be confounded; from now on his countenance will not blush with shame.
29:23 Instead, when he sees his children, they will be the work of my hands in his midst, sanctifying my name, and they will sanctify the Holy One of Jacob, and they will preach the God of Israel.
29:24 And those who had gone astray in spirit will know understanding, and those who had murmured will learn the law.
