Seek the (35) [LORD] while you can find (36) [him]. (37) [Call] on him now while he is near. Let the wicked change their ways and (38) [banish] the (39) [very] (40) [thought] of doing wrong. Let them turn to the (41) [LORD] that he may have mercy on them. Yes, turn to our God, for he will forgive (42) [generously]. (43) "[My] thoughts are nothing like your thoughts," (44) [says] the LORD. "And my ways are far beyond anything (45) [you] could imagine. For just as the heavens are higher than the (46) [earth], so my (47) [ways] are higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than (48) [your] thoughts." "The rain and snow come down (49) [from the heavens] and stay on the ground (50) [to water the earth]. They cause the grain (51) [to grow], producing seed (52) [for the farmer] and bread (53) [for] the hungry. (54) [It] (55) [is] the same (56) [with] my word. I (57) [send] it out, and it (58) [always] (59) [produces] (60) [fruit]. It (61) [will] accomplish all I want it to, and it will prosper everywhere I send it. You will live (62) [in joy and peace]. The (63) [mountains] and hills will burst (64) [into] song, and the trees (65) [of the field] will clap their hands! Where once there (66) [were] thorns, (67) [cypress] trees will grow. Where nettles (68) [grew], myrtles will sprout up. These events will bring great honor (69) [to] the LORD's name; they will be an (70) [everlasting] sign (71) [of his power and love]."
