Isaiah 35:7-9 Expanded Bible (EXB)

The ·burning desert [scorched ground; parched earth] will have pools of water,
    and the ·dry [parched; thirsty] ground will have springs.
Where ·wild dogs [jackals] once ·lived [lived and laid down],
    grass and ·water plants [reeds and rushes/papyrus] will grow.
A road will be there;
    this highway will be called “The ·Road to Being Holy [L Way/Highway of Holiness].”
·Evil people [The unclean; C ritually] will not be allowed to walk on that road;
    only good people [C those who walk in the Way of Holiness] will walk on it.
    No fools [C the morally corrupt who disregard God] will go on it.
No lions will be there,
    nor will ·dangerous animals [ravenous/violent beasts] be on that road.
    They will not be found there.
That road will be for the ·people God saves [redeemed];

Isaiah 35:7-9 New International Version (NIV)

The burning sand will become a pool,
    the thirsty ground bubbling springs.
In the haunts where jackals once lay,
    grass and reeds and papyrus will grow.

And a highway will be there;
    it will be called the Way of Holiness;
    it will be for those who walk on that Way.
The unclean will not journey on it;
    wicked fools will not go about on it.
No lion will be there,
    nor any ravenous beast;
    they will not be found there.
But only the redeemed will walk there,
