Isaiah 49:8-13

Country Roads, Take Me Home

8 Thus says the LORD: In a time of favor I have answered you, on a day of salvation I have helped you; I have kept you and given you as a covenant to the people, to establish the land, to apportion the desolate heritages; 9 saying to the prisoners, "Come out," to those who are in darkness, "Show yourselves." They shall feed along the ways, on all the bare heights shall be their pasture; 10 they shall not hunger or thirst, neither scorching wind nor sun shall strike them down, for he who has pity on them will lead them, and by springs of water will guide them. 11 And I will turn all my mountains into a road, and my highways shall be raised up. 12 Lo, these shall come from far away, and lo, these from the north and from the west, and these from the land of Syene. 13 Sing for joy, O heavens, and exult, O earth; break forth, O mountains, into singing! For the LORD has comforted his people, and will have compassion on his suffering ones.

Musings

These verses are all about restoration and celebration. The thoughts about re-establishing Jerusalem from the previous verses continue although less about Israel's example and more about the LORD's part in it. It also echoes Isaiah 40 regarding the interstate highway-like ease the LORD will make the return to Jerusalem from Babylon. Other familiar symbolism includes the prisoners are set free, the hungry are fed, light will come to those in darkness and finally the mountains themselves will sing to the glory of it all.
