Joshua said to all the people, "This is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: 'Long ago your ancestors, including Terah, the father of Abraham and Nahor, lived beyond the Euphrates River and worshiped other gods.
3
But I took your father Abraham from the region beyond the Euphrates River, led him throughout the land of Canaan, and multiplied his descendants. I gave him Isaac,
4
and to Isaac I gave Jacob and Esau. I gave the hill country of Seir to Esau as a possession, but Jacob and his sons went down to Egypt.

" 'Then I sent Moses and Aaron, I plagued Egypt by what I did there, and afterwards I brought you out.

This is what the LORD, your Redeemer who formed you from the womb, says: I am the LORD, who made everything; who stretched out the heavens by Myself; who alone spread out the earth;
25
who destroys the omens of the false prophets and makes fools of diviners; who confounds the wise and makes their knowledge foolishness;
26

This is what the LORD, the Redeemer of Israel, his Holy One says to one who is despised, to one abhorred by people, to a servant of rulers: "Kings will see and stand up, and princes will bow down, because of the LORD, who is faithful, the Holy One of Israel-- and He has chosen you."
8
This is what the LORD says: I will answer you in a time of favor, and I will help you in the day of salvation. I will keep you, and I will appoint you to be a covenant for the people, to restore the land, to make them possess the desolate inheritances,
9
saying to the prisoners: Come out, and to those who are in darkness: Show yourselves. They will feed along the pathways, and their pastures will be on all the barren heights.
10
They will not hunger or thirst, the scorching heat or sun will not strike them; for their compassionate One will guide them, and lead them to springs of water.
11
I will make all My mountains into a road, and My highways will be raised up.
12
See, these will come from far away, from the north and from the west, and from the land of Sinim.
13
Shout for joy, you heavens! Earth, rejoice! Mountains break into joyful shouts! For the LORD has comforted His people, and will have compassion on His afflicted ones.
14
Zion says, "The LORD has abandoned me; The Lord has forgotten me!"
15
"Can a woman forget her nursing child, or lack compassion for the child of her womb? Even if these forget, yet I will not forget you.
16
Look, I have inscribed you on the palms of My hands; your walls are continually before Me.
17
Your builders hurry; those who destroy and devastate you will leave you.
18
Look up, and look around. They all gather together; they come to you. As I live"-- the LORD's declaration-- "you will wear all your children as jewelry, and put them on as a bride does.
19
For your waste and desolate places and your land marked by ruins-- will now be indeed too small for the inhabitants, and those who swallowed you up will be far away.
20
The children that you have been deprived of will yet say in your hearing: This place is too small for me; make room for me so that I may settle.
21
Then you will say within yourself: Who fathered these for me? I was deprived of my children and barren, exiled and wandering-- but who brought them up? See, I was left by myself-- but these, where did they come from?"
22
This is what the Lord God says: Look, I will lift up My hand to the nations, and raise My banner to the peoples. They will bring your sons in their arms, and your daughters will be carried on their shoulders.
23
Kings will be your foster fathers, and their queens your nursing mothers. They will bow down to you with their faces to the ground, and lick the dust at your feet. Then you will know that I am the LORD; those who put their hope in Me will not be put to shame.
24
Can the prey be taken from the mighty, or the captives of the righteous be delivered?
25
For this is what the LORD says: "Even the captives of a mighty man will be taken, and the prey of a tyrant will be delivered; I will contend with the one who contends with you, and I will save your children.
26
I will make your oppressors eat their own flesh, and they will be drunk with their own blood as with sweet wine. Then all flesh will know that I, the LORD, am your Savior, and your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob."

1
Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD shines over you.
2
For look, darkness covers the earth, and total darkness the peoples; but the LORD will shine over you, and His glory will appear over you.
3
Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your radiance.
4
Raise your eyes and look around: they all gather and come to you; your sons will come from far away, and your daughters will be carried on the hip.
5
Then you will see and be radiant, and your heart will tremble and rejoice, because the riches of the sea will become yours, and the wealth of the nations will come to you.
6
Caravans of camels will cover your land-- young camels of Midian and Ephah-- all of them will come from Sheba. They will carry gold and frankincense and proclaim the praises of the LORD.
7
All the flocks of Kedar will be gathered to you; the rams of Nebaioth will serve you and go up on My altar as an acceptable [sacrifice]. I will glorify My beautiful house.
8
Who are these who fly like a cloud, like doves to their shelters?
9
Yes, the islands will wait for Me with the ships of Tarshish in the lead, to bring your children from far away, their silver and gold with them, for the honor of the LORD your God, the Holy One of Israel, who has glorified you.
ZEFANIABIBLE_BIBLE_BOOK_NAME_23 61:7-11
7
Because your shame was double, and they cried out, "Disgrace is their portion," therefore, they will possess double in their land, and eternal joy will be theirs.
8
For I the LORD love justice; I hate robbery and injustice; I will faithfully reward them and make an everlasting covenant with them.
9
Their descendants will be known among the nations, and their posterity among the peoples. All who see them will recognize that they are a people the LORD has blessed.
10
I greatly rejoice in the LORD, I exult in my God; for He has clothed me with the garments of salvation and wrapped me in a robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom wears a turban and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.
11
For as the earth brings forth its growth, and as a garden enables what is sown to spring up, so the Lord God will cause righteousness and praise to spring up before all the nations.

5
Yes, this is what the LORD says: We have heard a cry of terror, of dread-- there is no peace.
6
Ask and see whether a male can give birth. Why then do I see every man with his hands on his stomach like a woman in labor and every face turned pale?
7
How awful that day will be! There will be none like it! It will be a time of trouble for Jacob, but he will be delivered out of it.

10
Nations, hear the word of the LORD, and tell it among the far off coastlands! Say: The One who scattered Israel will gather him. He will watch over him as a shepherd [guards] his flock,
11
for the LORD has ransomed Jacob and redeemed him from the power of one stronger than he.
12
They will come and shout for joy on the heights of Zion; they will be radiant with joy because of the LORD's goodness, because of the grain, the new wine, the fresh oil, and because of the young of the flocks and herds. Their life will be like an irrigated garden, and they will no longer grow weak [from hunger].

24
"Have you not noticed what these people have said? They say: The LORD has rejected the two families He had chosen. My people are treated with contempt and no longer regarded as a nation among them.
25
This is what the LORD says: If I do not [keep] My covenant with the day and with the night and fail to establish the fixed order of heaven and earth,
26
then I might also reject the seed of Jacob and of My servant David-- not taking from his descendants rulers over the descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Instead, I will restore their fortunes and have compassion on them."
ZEFANIABIBLE_BIBLE_BOOK_NAME_26 37:24
My servant David will be king over them, and there will be one shepherd for all of them. They will follow My ordinances, and keep My statutes and obey them.
ZEFANIABIBLE_BIBLE_BOOK_NAME_26 37:28
When My sanctuary is among them forever, the nations will know that I, the LORD, sanctify Israel."

25
"So this is what the Lord God says: Now I will restore the fortunes of Jacob and have compassion on the whole house of Israel, and I will be jealous for My holy name.
26
They will feel remorse for their disgrace and all the unfaithfulness they committed against Me, when they live securely in their land with no one to frighten [them].
27
When I bring them back from the peoples and gather them from the countries of their enemies, I will demonstrate My holiness through them in the sight of many nations.
28
They will know that I am the LORD their God when I regather them to their own land after having exiled them among the nations. I will leave none of them behind.
29
I will no longer hide My face from them, for I will pour out My Spirit on the house of Israel." [This is] the declaration of the Lord God.
ZEFANIABIBLE_BIBLE_BOOK_NAME_26 40:1-48
1
In the twenty-fifth year of our exile, at the beginning of the year, on the tenth day of the month in the fourteenth year after Jerusalem had been captured, on that very day the LORD's hand was on me, and He brought me there.
2
In visions of God He took me to the land of Israel and set me down on a very high mountain. On its southern [slope] was a structure resembling a city.
3
He brought me there, and I saw a man whose appearance was like bronze, with a linen cord and a measuring rod in his hand. He was standing by the gate.
4
He spoke to me: "Son of man, look with your eyes, listen with your ears, and pay attention to everything I am going to show you, for you have been brought here so that I might show [it] to you. Report everything you see to the house of Israel."
5
Now there was a wall surrounding the outside of the temple. The measuring rod in the man's hand was six units of 21 inches; each unit was the standard length plus three inches. He measured the thickness of the [wall] structure; it was about 10 feet, and its height was the same.
6
Then he came to the gate that faced east and climbed its steps. He measured the threshold of the gate; it was 10 feet deep-- the first threshold was 10 feet deep.
7
Each recess was about 10 feet long and 10 feet deep, and there was [a space of] eight and three-quarter feet between the recesses. The [inner] threshold of the gate on the temple side next to the gate's portico was about 10 feet.
8
Next he measured the portico of the gate;
9
it was 14 feet, and its pilasters were three and a half feet. The portico of the gate was on the temple side.
10
There were three recesses on each side of the east gate, each with the same measurements, and the pilasters on either side also had the same measurements.
11
Then he measured the width of the gate's entrance; it was 17 and a half feet, while the width of the gateway was 22 and three-quarter feet.
12
There was a barrier of 21 inches in front of the recesses on both sides, and the recesses on each side were 10 and a half feet square.
13
Then he measured the gateway from the roof of one recess to the roof of the [opposite] one; the distance was 43 and three-quarter feet. The openings of the recesses faced each other.
14
Next, he measured the pilasters-- 105 feet. The gate extended around to the pilaster of the court.
15
[The distance] from the front of the gate at the entrance to the front of the gate's portico on the inside was 87 and a half feet.
16
The recesses and their pilasters had beveled windows all around the inside of the gateway. The porticos also had windows all around on the inside. Each pilaster was decorated with palm trees.
17
Then he brought me into the outer court, and there were chambers and a paved surface laid out all around the court. Thirty chambers faced the pavement,
18
which flanked the gates and corresponded to the length of the gates; [this] was the lower pavement.
19
Then he measured the distance from the front of the lower gate to the exterior front of the inner court; it was 175 feet. [This] was the east; next the north [is described].
20
He measured the gate of the outer court facing north, [both] its length and width.
21
Its three recesses on each side, its pilasters, and its portico had the same measurements as the first gate: 87 and a half feet long and 43 and three-quarter feet wide.
22
Its windows, portico, and palm trees had the same measurements as those of the gate that faced east. Seven steps led up to the gate, and its portico was ahead of them.
23
The inner court had a gate facing the north gate, like the one on the east. He measured the distance from gate to gate; it was 175 feet.
24
He brought me to the south side, and there was also a gate on the south. He measured its pilasters and portico; they had the same measurements as the others.
25
Both the gate and its portico had windows all around, like the other windows. It was 87 and a half feet long and 43 and three-quarter feet wide.
26
Its stairway had seven steps, and its portico was ahead of them. It had palm trees on its pilasters, one on each side.
27
The inner court had a gate on the south. He measured from gate to gate on the south; it was 175 feet.
28
Then he brought me to the inner court through the south gate. When he measured the south gate, it had the same measurements as the others.
29
Its recesses, pilasters, and portico had the same measurements as the others. Both it and its portico had windows all around. It was 87 and a half feet long and 43 and three-quarter feet wide.
30
(There were porticoes all around, 43 and three-quarter feet long and eight and three-quarter feet wide.)
31
Its portico faced the outer court, and its pilasters were decorated with palm trees. Its stairway had eight steps.
32
Then he brought me to the inner court on the east side. When he measured the gate, it had the same measurements as the others.
33
Its recesses, pilasters, and portico had the same measurements as the others. Both it and its portico had windows all around. It was 87 and a half feet long and 43 and three-quarter feet wide.
34
Its portico faced the outer court, and its pilasters were decorated with palm trees on each side. Its stairway had eight steps.
35
Then he brought me to the north gate. When he measured [it], it had the same measurements as the others,
36
[as did] its recesses, pilasters, and portico. It also had windows all around. It was 87 and a half feet long and 43 and three-quarter feet wide.
37
Its portico faced the outer court, and its pilasters were decorated with palm trees on each side. Its stairway had eight steps.
38
There was a chamber whose door [opened] into the portico of the gate. The burnt offering was to be washed there.
39
Inside the portico of the gate there were two tables on each side, on which to slaughter the burnt offering, sin offering, and restitution offering.
40
Outside, as one approaches the entrance of the north gate, there were two tables on one side and two [more] tables on the other side of the gate's portico.
41
So there were four tables inside the gate and four outside, eight tables [in all] on which the slaughtering was to be done.
42
There were also four tables of cut stone for the burnt offering, [each] 31 and a half inches long, 31 and a half inches wide, and 21 inches high. The utensils used to slaughter the burnt offerings and [other] sacrifices were placed on them.
43
There were three-inch hooks fastened all around the inside of the room, and the flesh of the offering was to be laid on the tables.
44
Outside the inner gate, within the inner court, there were chambers for the singers: one beside the north gate, facing south, and another beside the south gate, facing north.
45
Then the man said to me: "This chamber that faces south is for the priests who keep charge of the temple.
46
The chamber that faces north is for the priests who keep charge of the altar. These are the sons of Zadok, the ones from the sons of Levi who may approach the LORD to serve Him."
47
Next he measured the court. It was square, 175 feet long and 175 feet wide. The altar was in front of the temple.
48
Then he brought me to the portico of the temple and measured the pilasters of the portico; they were eight and three-quarter feet [thick] on each side. The width of the gateway was 24 and a half feet, and the sidewalls of the gate were five and a quarter feet [wide] on each side.
ZEFANIABIBLE_BIBLE_BOOK_NAME_29 2:27
You will know that I am present in Israel and that I am the LORD your God, and there is no other. My people will never again be put to shame.
ZEFANIABIBLE_BIBLE_BOOK_NAME_45 11:11-24
11
I ask, then, have they stumbled so as to fall? Absolutely not! On the contrary, by their stumbling, salvation has come to the Gentiles to make Israel jealous.
12
Now if their stumbling brings riches for the world, and their failure riches for the Gentiles, how much more will their full number bring!
13
Now I am speaking to you Gentiles. In view of the fact that I am an apostle to the Gentiles, I magnify my ministry,
14
if I can somehow make my own people jealous and save some of them.
15
For if their being rejected is world reconciliation, what will their acceptance mean but life from the dead?
16
Now if the firstfruits offered up are holy, so is the whole batch. And if the root is holy, so are the branches.
17
Now if some of the branches were broken off, and you, though a wild olive branch, were grafted in among them, and have come to share in the rich root of the cultivated olive tree,
18
do not brag that you are better than those branches. But if you do brag-- you do not sustain the root, but the root sustains you.
19
Then you will say, "Branches were broken off so that I might be grafted in."
20
True enough; they were broken off by unbelief, but you stand by faith. Do not be arrogant, but be afraid.
21
For if God did not spare the natural branches, He will not spare you either.
22
Therefore, consider God's kindness and severity: severity toward those who have fallen, but God's kindness toward you-- if you remain in His kindness. Otherwise you too will be cut off.
23
And even they, if they do not remain in unbelief, will be grafted in, because God has the power to graft them in again.
24
For if you were cut off from your native wild olive, and against nature were grafted into a cultivated olive tree, how much more will these-- the natural branches-- be grafted into their own olive tree?
