65:13 So this is what the sovereign Lord says:
“Look, my servants will eat, but you will be hungry!
Look, my servants will drink, but you will be thirsty!
Look, my servants will rejoice, but you will be humiliated!
65:21 They will build houses and live in them;
they will plant vineyards and eat their fruit.
65:22 No longer will they build a house only to have another live in it, 1
or plant a vineyard only to have another eat its fruit, 2
for my people will live as long as trees, 3
and my chosen ones will enjoy to the fullest what they have produced. 4
65:23 They will not work in vain,
or give birth to children that will experience disaster. 5
For the Lord will bless their children
and their descendants. 6
