10 For just as the rain and the snow come down from heaven,
    and they do not return there
except they have watered the earth thoroughly
    and cause it to bring forth and sprout,
and give seed to the sower
    and bread to the eater,
11 so shall be my word that goes out from my mouth.
    It shall not return to me without success,
but shall accomplish[a] what I desire
    and be successful in the thing for which I sent it.
12 For you shall go out in joy,
    and you shall be led in peace.
The mountains and the hills shall break forth before you, rejoicing
    and all the trees of the field shall clap hands.[b]
