They Shall They Break Forth into Joy
Christ prophesies about his own second coming in terms of the whole cosmos experiencing a vast temple initiation. The waste places "break forth into joy" and "sing together" (are "joy" and singing equivalents? Lehi's family feel joy after they eat the fruit, and the multitude of 3 Nephi 20 sing after they eat the bread and wine). Jerusalem dresses and arises. The Lord's "name" will be known, and he will be known as the one who speaks (the resident within the Holy of Holies, the Debir, the Place of Speaking).
