Context

35:3 Strengthen the hands that have gone limp,

steady the knees that shake! 1

“Be strong! Do not fear!

Look, your God comes to avenge!

With divine retribution he comes to deliver you.” 3 

35:5 Then blind eyes will open,

deaf ears will hear.

35:6 Then the lame will leap like a deer,

the mute tongue will shout for joy;

for water will flow 4  in the desert,

streams in the wilderness. 5
