[Diocese of Mauritius - Indian Ocean] Isa 41:17 "When my people in their need look for water, when their throats are dry with thirst, then I, the LORD, will answer their prayer; I, the God of Israel, will never abandon them.
Isa 41:18 I will make rivers flow among barren hills and springs of water run in the valleys. I will turn the desert into pools of water and the dry land into flowing springs.
Isa 41:19 I will make cedars grow in the desert, and acacias and myrtles and olive trees. Forests will grow in barren land, forests of pine and juniper and cypress.
Isa 41:20 People will see this and know that I, the LORD, have done it. They will come to understand that Israel's holy God has made it happen."
Isa 41:21 The LORD, the king of Israel, has this to say: "You gods of the nations, present your case. Bring the best arguments you have!
Isa 41:22 Come here and predict what will happen, so that we will know it when it takes place. Explain to the court the events of the past, and tell us what they mean.
Isa 41:23 Tell us what the future holds--- then we will know that you are gods! Do something good or bring some disaster; fill us with fear and awe!
Isa 41:24 You and all you do are nothing; those who worship you are disgusting!
Isa 41:25 "I have chosen a man who lives in the east; I will bring him to attack from the north. He tramples on rulers as if they were mud, like a potter trampling clay.
Isa 41:26 Which of you predicted that this would happen, so that we could say that you were right? None of you said a word about it; no one heard you say a thing!
Isa 41:27 I, the LORD, was the first to tell Zion the news; I sent a messenger to Jerusalem to say, 'Your people are coming! They are coming home!'
