10 For just as rain and snow fall from heaven
and do not return there
without saturating the earth
and making it germinate and sprout,
and providing seed to sow
and food to eat,(A)
11 so My word that comes from My mouth
will not return to Me empty,
but it will accomplish what I please
and will prosper in what I send it to do.”(B)

12 You will indeed go out with joy
and be peacefully guided;
the mountains and the hills will break into singing before you,
and all the trees of the field will clap their hands.(C)

10 As the rain(A) and the snow
    come down from heaven,
and do not return to it
    without watering the earth
and making it bud and flourish,(B)
    so that it yields seed(C) for the sower and bread for the eater,(D)
11 so is my word(E) that goes out from my mouth:
    It will not return to me empty,(F)
but will accomplish what I desire
    and achieve the purpose(G) for which I sent it.
12 You will go out in joy(H)
    and be led forth in peace;(I)
the mountains and hills
    will burst into song(J) before you,
and all the trees(K) of the field
    will clap their hands.(L)
