10 “For as the (A)rain and the snow come down from heaven,
And do not return there without watering the earth
And making it bear and sprout,
And furnishing (B)seed to the sower and bread to the eater;
11 So will My (C)word be which goes forth from My mouth;
It will (D)not return to Me empty,
Without (E)accomplishing what I desire,
And without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it.
12 “For you will go out with (F)joy
And be led forth with (G)peace;
The (H)mountains and the hills will break forth into shouts of joy before you,
And all the (I)trees of the field will clap their hands.

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)
