Is the "voice" in the wilderness, or is "the way of the Lord"?

There is no punctuation in the Hebrew...and learned people disagree:


A voice crying out in the wilderness,


"prepare the way of the Lord, 


make straight in the desert a highway for our God." 


Isaiah 40:3

...or...


A voice crying out, 


"in the wilderness prepare the way of the Lord, 


make straight in the desert a highway for our God."

Isaiah 40:3
