On that day the Lord will [extend] His hand a second time to recover-- from Assyria, Egypt, Pathros, Cush, Elam, Shinar, Hamath, and the coasts and islands of the west-- the remnant of His people who survive.
On that day there will be a highway from Egypt to Assyria. Assyria will go to Egypt, Egypt to Assyria, and Egypt will worship with Assyria.
On that day a great trumpet will be blown, and those lost in the land of Assyria will come, as well as those dispersed in the land of Egypt; and they will worship the LORD at Jerusalem on the holy mountain.
A road will be there and a way; it will be called the Holy Way. The unclean will not travel on it, but it will be for him who walks the path. Even the fool will not go astray.
There will be no lion there, and no vicious beast will go up on it; they will not be found there. But the redeemed will walk [on it],
and the ransomed of the LORD will return and come to Zion with singing, crowned with unending joy. Joy and gladness will overtake [them], and sorrow and sighing will flee.
A voice of one crying out: Prepare the way of the LORD in the wilderness; make a straight highway for our God in the desert.
Every valley will be lifted up, and every mountain and hill will be leveled; the uneven ground will become smooth, and the rough places a plain.
See, these will come from far away, from the north and from the west, and from the land of Sinim.
He said, "Build it up, build it up, prepare the way, remove [every] obstacle from My people's way."

I will lay waste mountains and hills, and dry up all their vegetation. I will turn rivers into islands, and dry up marshes.
I will lead the blind by a way they did not know; I will guide them on paths they have not known. I will turn darkness to light in front of them, and rough places into level ground. This is what I will do for them, and I will not forsake them.
Leave Babylon, flee from the Chaldeans! Declare with a shout of joy, proclaim this, let it go out to the end of the earth; announce, "The LORD has redeemed His servant Jacob!"
They did not thirst when He led them through the deserts; He made water flow for them from the rock; He split the rock, and water gushed out.
Wasn't it You who dried up the sea, the waters of the great deep, who made the sea-bed into a road for the redeemed to pass over?
He sent His glorious arm at Moses' right hand, divided the waters before them to obtain eternal fame for Himself,
and led them through the depths like a horse in the wilderness, so that they did not stumble.
Then the LORD said to Moses, "Stretch out your hand over the sea so that the waters may come back on the Egyptians, on their chariots and horsemen."
So Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and at daybreak the sea returned to its normal depth. While the Egyptians were trying to escape from it, the LORD overthrew them in the sea.
The waters came back and covered the chariots and horsemen, the entire army of Pharaoh, that had gone after them into the sea. None of them survived.
But the Israelites had walked through the sea on dry ground, with the waters [like] a wall to them on their right and their left.
