The Peace of God’s Reign

16    Then justice will dwell in the wilderness,

And righteousness remain in the fruitful field.

17    mThe work of righteousness will be peace,

And the effect of righteousness, quietness and assurance forever.

18    My people will dwell in a peaceful habitation,

In secure dwellings, and in quiet nresting places,

19    oThough hail comes down pon the forest,

And the city is brought low in humiliation.

20    Blessed are you who sow beside all waters,

Who send out freely the feet of qthe ox and the donkey.[1]
