But the liberal deviseth liberal things; and by liberal things shall he stand.
Rise up, ye women that are at ease, and hear my voice; ye confident daughters, give ear unto my speech.
After a year and days shall ye be troubled, ye confident women; for the vintage shall fail, the ingathering shall not come.
Tremble, ye women that are at ease; be troubled, ye confident ones; strip you, and make you bare, and gird sackcloth upon your loins,
Smiting upon the breasts for the pleasant fields, for the fruitful vine;
For the land of my people whereon thorns and briers come up; yea, for all the houses of joy and the joyous city.
For the palace shall be forsaken; the city with its stir shall be deserted; the mound and the tower shall be for dens for ever, a joy of wild asses, a pasture of flocks;
Until the spirit be poured upon us from on high, and the wilderness become a fruitful field, and the fruitful field be counted for a forest.
Then justice shall dwell in the wilderness, and righteousness shall abide in the fruitful field.
And the work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness quietness and confidence for ever.
And my people shall abide in a peaceable habitation, and in secure dwellings, and in quiet resting-places.
And it shall hail, in the downfall of the forest; but the city shall descend into the valley.
Happy are ye that sow beside all waters, that send forth freely the feet of the ox and the ass.
