“In returning and rest you shall be saved; in quietness and in trust shall be your strength.” Isaiah 30:15b

Return / שׁוּבָה (shoo-baw’)
Once again
Retreating – Repenting – Refreshing
Coming home to Papa
Salvation / יָשַׁע (yaw-shah’)

Rest / נַחַת (nakh’-ath)
Decent descent
Alighting – Deescalating- Reclining
Down into safe arms

Quietness / שָׁקַט (shaw-kat’)
Settled – Still
Placidity – Serenity – Tranquility
Roosting on the tree of life

Trust / בִּטְחָה (bit-khaw’)
Utter confidence
Secure – Safe- Credible
Sheltering in His refuge
Leaning 可靠

Salvation / יָשַׁע (yaw-shah’)
Quiet again
Returning – Resting – Trusting
Open & wide, Safe & free
