Isaiah 32:15-18

Complacent Women Warned of Disaster

15 until f the Spirit is poured upon us from on high,
and g the wilderness becomes a fruitful field,
and the fruitful field is deemed a forest.
16 Then justice will dwell in the wilderness,
and righteousness abide in the fruitful field.
17 h And the effect of righteousness will be peace,
and the result of righteousness, quietness and trust 1 forever.
18 My people will abide in a peaceful habitation,
in secure dwellings, and in quiet resting places.
