As a 1bcovenant for the people, as a 2clight for the nations;

To bring the prisoner out from the bprison,

And anew things I am telling you;
Before they spring forth
I will let you hear them.

The villages which Kedar inhabits, lift up their voices;

And declare His praise in the coastlands.

Who will pay attention and listen to the coming things?

And the strength of battle;
