Isaiah 43:20 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible

In the day of great slaughter, when the towers fall, streams of water will flow on every high mountain and every lofty hill.
Each one will be like a shelter from the wind and a refuge from the storm, like streams of water in the desert and the shadow of a great rock in a thirsty land.
There the LORD will be our Mighty One. It will be like a place of broad rivers and streams. No galley with oars will ride them, no mighty ship will sail them.
The burning sand will become a pool, the thirsty ground bubbling springs. In the haunts where jackals once lay, grass and reeds and papyrus will grow.
