Isaiah 55:12-13

For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands. Instead of the thorn shall come up the fir tree, and instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree: and it shall be to the LORD for a name, for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.

 

Those who seek the Lord will leave the land of captivity with joy, and travel home with peace. All nature will rejoice in their liberation. The land will enjoy freedom from the curse, with resulting fruitfulness. Instead of the thorn and the brier, the cypress, and the myrtle tree will come up. All the foregoing millennial blessings will bring the LORD renown and will be for an everlasting sign, that is, an eternal memorial of His grace and goodness.
