Isaiah 54:1-3 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
The New Zion
1 Raise a glad cry, you barren one who never bore a child,
break forth in jubilant song, you who have never been in labor,
For more numerous are the children of the deserted wife
than the children of her who has a husband,
says the Lord.
2 Enlarge the space for your tent,
spread out your tent cloths unsparingly;
lengthen your ropes and make firm your pegs.
3 For you shall spread abroad to the right and left;
your descendants shall dispossess the nations
and shall people the deserted cities.
