For thus saith the Lord,
Behold I will extend peace to her like a river,
and the glory of the Gentiles like a flowing stream:
then shall ye suck,…
As one whom his mother comforteth,
so will I comfort you;
and ye shall be comforted in Jerusalem.
(T)o give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning,
the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness;
Thy mother is like a vine in thy blood, planted by the waters:
she was fruitful and full of branches by reason of many waters.
And unto one he gave five talents,
to another two, and to another one;
to every man according to his several ability.
