Isaiah 42:14-16 The Passion Translation (TPT)
14 For a long time, I said nothing.
I restrained myself and kept silent.
Now I will groan, pant, and gasp like a woman in labor.
15 I will level their hills and mountains
and dry up all their vegetation.
I will turn rivers into islands and dry up their lakes.
16 I will walk the blind by an unknown way
and guide them on paths they’ve never traveled.
I will smooth their difficult road
and make their dark mysteries bright with light.
These are things I will do for them,
for I will never abandon my beloved ones.
