Yet the LORD longs to be gracious to you;
He rises to show you compassion.
For the LORD is a God of justice.
Blessed are all who wait for him!
O people of Zion, who live in Jerusalem, you will weep no more. How
gracious he will be when you cry for help! As soon as he hears, he will answer
you. Although the Lord gives you the bread of adversity and the water of
affliction, your teachers will be hidden no more; with your own eyes you will
see them. Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will
hear a voice behind you, saying, "This is the way; walk in it."
The day after my posting about "the cliff," this passage was next in my daily Bible reading. Amazing.
