17When the poor and needy seek water, and there is none, and their tongue is parched with thirst, I the Lord will answer them, I the God of Israel will not forsake them. 18I will open rivers on the bare heights, and fountains in the midst of the valleys; I will make the wilderness a pool of water, and the dry land springs of water. 19I will put in the wilderness the cedar, the acacia, the myrtle, and the olive; I will set in the desert the cypress, the plane and the pine together, 20so that all may see and know, all may consider and understand, that the hand of the Lord has done this, the Holy One of Israel has created it.
21Set forth your case, says the Lord; bring your proofs, says the King of Jacob.
