So I Will Comfort You

This is from the book of Isaiah. It's talking about Jerusalem, but the imagery used here is so beautiful to me, and I wanted to share it:

Rejoice with Jerusalem, and be glad for her, all you who love her;
rejoice with her in joy, all you who mourn over her;
that you may nurse and be satisfied from her consoling breast;
that you may drink deeply with delight from her glorious abundance.

For thus says the Lord:
"Behold, I will extend peace to her like a river, and the glory of the nations like an overflowing stream;
and you shall nurse, you shall be carried upon her hip, and bounced upon her knees.
As one whom his mother comforts, so I will comfort you; you shall be comforted in Jerusalem.

-Isaiah 66:10-13
