41:19 I will make cedars, acacias, myrtles, and olive trees grow in the wilderness;
I will make evergreens, firs, and cypresses grow together in the desert.
so they will pay attention and understand
that the Lord’s power 3 has accomplished this,
and that the Holy One of Israel has brought it into being.” 4
