10 Rejoice with Jerusalem and be glad for her,
all who love her;


join in her celebration, all who mourn for her.


11 From now on nurse contentedly
at her consoling breasts; draw at your pleasure
from the abundance of her bosom.


12 For thus says Jehovah: See,
I will extend peace to her like a river, the bounty of the nations like a stream in flood.

and dandled on the knees.


13 As one who is comforted by his mother
I will comfort you; for Jerusalem you shall be comforted.


14 Your heart shall rejoice to see it,
your limbs flourish like sprouting grass, when the hand of Jehovah
shall be manifest among his servants and his rage among his enemies.
