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!
But you will cry out as sorrow fills your hearts; 2
you will wail because your spirits will be crushed. 3
65:18 But be happy and rejoice forevermore
over what I am about to create!
and her people to be a source of happiness. 6
65:19 Jerusalem will bring me joy,
and my people will bring me happiness. 7
The sound of weeping or cries of sorrow
will never be heard in her again.
