M V S
G

15  Until the spirit be poured upon us from on high, and the wilderness become a fruitful field, and the fruitful field be counted for a forest.

15  until the Spirit shall come upon you from on high, and Chermel shall be desert, and Chermel shall be counted for a forest.

16  Then justice shall dwell in the wilderness, and righteousness shall abide in the fruitful field.

16  Then judgement shall abide in the wilderness, and righteousness shall dwell in Carmel.

16  And judgment will live in solitude, and justice will be seated in a fruitful place.

17  And the work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness quietness and confidence for ever.

17  And the works of righteousness shall be peace; and righteousness shall ensure rest, and the righteous shall be confident for ever.

17  And the work of justice will be peace. And the service of justice will be quiet and secure, forever.

18  And my people shall abide in a peaceable habitation, and in secure dwellings, and in quiet resting-places.

18  And his people shall inhabit a city of peace, and dwell in it in confidence, and they shall rest with wealth.

18  And my people will be seated in the beauty of peacefulness, and in the tabernacles of faithfulness, and in the opulence of restfulness.

19  And it shall hail, in the downfall of the forest; but the city shall descend into the valley.

19  And if the hail should come down, it shall not come upon you; and they that dwell in the forests shall be in confidence, as those in the plain country.

19  But hail will be in the descent of the forest, and the city will be brought exceedingly low.

20  Happy are ye that sow beside all waters, that send forth freely the feet of the ox and the ass.

20  Blessed are they that sow by every water, where the ox and ass tread.

20  Blessed are you who sow over any waters, sending the feet of the ox and the donkey there.
