"Sing, O heavens; and be joyful, O earth;
and break out into singing, O mountains;
for the Lord has comforted His people,
and will have mercy on His afflicted.
"But Zion said, Jehovah has forsaken me,
and my LORD has forgotten me.
"Can a woman forget her suckling child,
that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb?
"Yes, they may forget, yet I will not forget you.
Behold, I have carved you on the palms of My hands;
your walls are forever before Me."
