6 God qsettles the solitary in a home;
he rleads out the prisoners to prosperity,
but sthe rebellious dwell in ta parched land.
5 Those who were full have hired themselves out for bread,
but those who were hungry have ceased to hunger.
lThe barren has borne seven,
mbut she who has many children is forlorn.
21 And because the midwives feared God, qhe gave them families.
The Eternal Covenant of Peace
54 h“Sing, O barren one, who did not bear;
break forth into singing and cry aloud,
you who have not been in labor!
For the children of ithe desolate one jwill be more
than the children of her who is married,” says the Lord.
