isaiah 40
Isaiah 40

30Even youths grow tired and weary,        and young men stumble and fall;

31but those who hope in the LORD        will renew their strength.        They will soar on wings like eagles;        they will run and not grow weary,        they will walk and not be faint.

30Jenn gason konn pèdi souf, yo konn bouke.

Lè konsa, yo bite, yo tonbe.31Men, Seyè a ap bay moun ki mete konfyans yo nan li fòs ankò. Tankou malfini, y'ap pran zèl pou yo leve ale.

Y'ap kouri san yo p'ap janm bouke. Y'ap mache, yo p'ap janm febli.
