10 For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven,
    and do not return there until they have watered the earth,
making it bring forth and sprout,
    giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater,
11 so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth;
    it shall not return to me empty,
but it shall accomplish that which I purpose,
    and succeed in the thing for which I sent it.

12 For you shall go out in joy,
    and be led back in peace;
the mountains and the hills before you
    shall burst into song,
    and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.

10 As the rain(A) and the snow

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)
