"Those who have been ransomed by the LORD will return.
They will enter Jerusalem singing, crowned with everlasting joy.
Sorrow and mourning will disappear, and they will be filled with joy and gladness.
'I, yes I, am the one who comforts you.
So why are you afraid of mere humans, who wither like the grass and disappear?
Yet you have forgotten the LORD, your Creator,
the one who stretched out the sky like a canopy
and laid the foundations of the earth.'"
