Nizhny Novgorod
Words from the prophet Isaiah in
the 43rd chapter:
Do not call to mind the former
things,
Or ponder things of the past.
19
Behold, I will do something new,
Now it will spring forth;
Will you not be aware of it?
I will even make a roadway in the
wilderness,
Rivers in the desert.
20
The beasts of the field will glorify
Me,
The jackals and the ostriches,
Because I have given waters in
the wilderness
And rivers in the desert,
To give drink to My chosen
people.
