Good times for the servants of Yahweh (Isa 65:13-65:14)

“Therefore thus says Yahweh God.

‘My servants shall eat.

But you shall be hungry.

My servants shall drink.

But you shall be thirsty.

My servants shall rejoice.

But you shall be put to shame.

My servants shall sing

From gladness of the heart.

But you shall cry

Out of pain of the heart.

You shall wail

For anguish of spirit.’”

Yahweh pointed out that his servants would be fine. However, the others were in trouble. Yahweh’s servants would eat, drink, and rejoice, while the others would be hungry, thirsty, and put to shame. The servants of Yahweh would sing with gladness in their heart. The others would have a painful cry from the heart. They would wail because of their bruised spirit.
