The return on the easy road (Isa 49:9-49:11)

“They shall feed along the ways.

On all bare heights

Shall be their pasture.

They shall not hunger.

They shall not thirst.

There shall not be a scorching wind.

There shall not be the sun

To strike them down.

He who has pity on them

Will lead them.

By springs of water,

He will guide them.

I will turn all my mountains

Into a road.

My highways shall be raised up.”

Yahweh explains that this will be an easy road back from the Exile. There will be food along the way and plenty of pastures. They will not be hungry or thirsty. There would be no scorching wind or dangerous sun to strike them with sun stroke. People will take pity on them, and lead them to springs of water. The mountains will become easy roads, while highways will appear out of nowhere.
