"For the Lord will comfort Zion, He will comfort all her waste places; He will make her wilderness like Eden, and her desert like the garden of the Lord; joy and gladness will be found in it, Thanksgiving and the voice of melody."

"For His anger is but for a moment, His flavor is for life; weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning."

"How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who proclaims peace, who brings glad tidings of good things, who proclaims salvation who says to Zion Your God reigns!"

"I acknowledged my sin to You, and my iniquity I have not hidden. I said, 'I will confess my transgressions to the Lord,' and You forgave the iniquity of my sin."

"For thus says the Lord: You have sold yourselves for nothing, and you shall be redeemed without money."
