Isaiah 32:14-18 GNB
(14) Even the palace will be abandoned and the capital city totally deserted. Homes and the forts that guarded them will be in ruins forever. Wild donkeys will roam there, and sheep will find pasture there. (15) But once more God will send us his spirit. The wasteland will become fertile, and fields will produce rich crops. (16) Everywhere in the land righteousness and justice will be done. (17) Because everyone will do what is right, there will be peace and security forever. (18) God's people will be free from worries, and their homes peaceful and safe.

Isaiah 32:14-18 CEV
(14) The palace will be deserted, the crowded city empty. Fortresses and towers will forever become playgrounds for wild donkeys and pastures for sheep. (15) When the Spirit is given to us from heaven, deserts will become orchards thick as fertile forests. (16) Honesty and justice will prosper there, (17) and justice will produce lasting peace and security. (18) You, the LORD's people, will live in peace, calm and secure,

Isaiah 32:14-18 NWT
14 For the dwelling tower itself has been forsaken, the very hubbub of the city has been abandoned; Ophel and the watchtower themselves have become bare fields, for time indefinite the exultation of zebras, the pasture of droves; 15 until upon us the spirit is poured out from on high, and the wilderness will have become an orchard, and the orchard itself is accounted as a real forest. 16 "And in the wilderness justice will certainly reside, and in the orchard righteousness itself will dwell. 17 And the work of the [true] righteousness must become peace; and the service of the [true] righteousness, quietness and security to time indefinite. 18 And my people must dwell in a peaceful abiding place and in residences of full confidence and in undisturbed resting-places.

Isaiah 32:14-18 ESV
(14) For the palace is forsaken, the populous city deserted; the hill and the watchtower will become dens forever, a joy of wild donkeys, a pasture of flocks; (15) until the Spirit is poured upon us from on high, and the wilderness becomes a fruitful field, and the fruitful field is deemed a forest. (16) Then justice will dwell in the wilderness, and righteousness abide in the fruitful field. (17) And the effect of righteousness will be peace, and the result of righteousness, quietness and trust forever. (18) My people will abide in a peaceful habitation, in secure dwellings, and in quiet resting places.
