17 The poor and the needy seek water, but there is none;

18 I will open rivers on the barren heights,(B)
and springs in the middle of the plains.
I will turn the desert into a pool of water
and dry land into springs of water.(C)

He made water flow for them from the rock;(A)
He split the rock, and water gushed out.
