Isaiah 40:1-5 (NKJV)
1 “Comfort, yes, comfort My people!” says your God.
2 “Speak comfort to Jerusalem, and cry out to her, that her warfare is ended, that her iniquity is pardoned; For she has received from the Lord’s hand double for all her sins.”
3 The voice of one crying in the wilderness: “Prepare the way of the Lord; make straight in the desert a highway for our God.
4 Every valley shall be exalted and every mountain and hill brought low; the crooked places shall be made straight and the rough places smooth;
5 The glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together; for the mouth of the Lord has spoken.”
