with good
Zechariah 1:14-16
14
So the angel who was speaking with me said, "Proclaim: The LORD of Hosts says: I am extremely jealous for Jerusalem and Zion.
15
I am fiercely angry with the nations that are at ease, for I was a little angry, but they made it worse.
16
Therefore, this is what the LORD says: I have graciously returned to Jerusalem; My house will be rebuilt within it"-- the declaration of the LORD of Hosts-- "and a measuring line will be stretched out over Jerusalem.
Zechariah 2:4-12
4
He said to him, "Run and tell this young man: Jerusalem will be inhabited without walls because of the number of people and livestock in it."
5
The declaration of the LORD: "I will be a wall of fire around it, and I will be the glory within it."
6
"Get up! Leave the land of the north"-- the LORD's declaration-- "for I have scattered you like the four winds of heaven"-- the LORD's declaration.
7
"Go, Zion! Escape, you who are living with Daughter Babylon."
8
For the LORD of Hosts says this: "He has sent Me for [His] glory against the nations who are plundering you, for anyone who touches you touches the pupil of His eye.
9
I will move against them with My power, and they will become plunder for their own servants. Then you will know that the LORD of Hosts has sent Me.
10
"Daughter Zion, shout for joy and be glad, for I am coming to dwell among you"-- the LORD's declaration.
11
"Many nations will join themselves to the LORD on that day and become My people. I will dwell among you, and you will know that the LORD of Hosts has sent Me to you.
12
The LORD will take possession of Judah as His portion in the Holy Land, and He will once again choose Jerusalem.
Zechariah 8:2-8
2
"The LORD of Hosts says this: I am extremely jealous for Zion; I am jealous for her with great wrath."
3
The LORD says this: "I will return to Zion and live in Jerusalem. Then Jerusalem will be called the Faithful City, the mountain of the LORD of Hosts, and the Holy Mountain."
4
The LORD of Hosts says this: "Old men and women will again sit along the streets of Jerusalem, each with a staff in hand because of advanced age.
5
The streets of the city will be filled with boys and girls playing in them."
6
The LORD of Hosts says this: "Though it may seem incredible to the remnant of this people in those days, should it also seem incredible to Me?"-- the declaration of the LORD of Hosts.
7
The LORD of Hosts says this: "I will save My people from the land of the east and the land of the west.
8
I will bring them [back] to live in Jerusalem. They will be My people, and I will be their faithful and righteous God."
Zechariah 8:19-8
Isaiah 40:1
"Comfort, comfort My people," says your God.
Isaiah 40:2
Speak tenderly to Jerusalem, and announce to her that her time of servitude is over, her iniquity has been pardoned, and she has received from the LORD's hand double for all her sins.
Jeremiah 29:10
For this is what the LORD says: "When 70 years for Babylon are complete, I will attend to you and will confirm My promise concerning you to restore you to this place.
Jeremiah 30:10-22
10
As for you, My servant Jacob, do not be afraid-- [this is] the LORD's declaration-- and do not be dismayed, Israel, for I will without fail save you from far away, your descendants, from the land of their captivity! Jacob will return and have calm and quiet with no one to frighten him.
11
For I will be with you-- [this is] the LORD's declaration-- to save you! I will bring destruction on all the nations where I have scattered you; however, I will not bring destruction on you. I will discipline you justly, but I will by no means leave you unpunished.
12
For this is what the LORD says: Your injury is incurable; your wound most severe.
13
No one takes up the case for your sores. You have nothing that can heal you.
14
All your lovers have forgotten you; they no longer look for you, for I have struck you like an enemy would, with the discipline of someone cruel, because of your enormous guilt and your innumerable sins.
15
Why do you cry out about your injury? Your pain has no cure! I have done these things to you because of your enormous guilt and your innumerable sins.
16
Nevertheless, all who devoured you will be devoured, and all your adversaries-- all of them-- will go off into exile. Your despoilers will become spoil, and all who plunder you will be plundered.
17
But I will bring you health and will heal you of your wounds-- [this is] the LORD's declaration-- for they call you The Outcast, that Zion no one cares about.
18
This is what the LORD says: I will certainly restore the fortunes of Jacob's tents and show compassion on his dwellings. Every city will be rebuilt on its mound; every citadel will stand on its proper site.
19
Thanksgiving will come out of them, a sound of celebration. I will multiply them, and they will not decrease; I will honor them, and they will not be insignificant.
20
His children will be as in past days; his congregation will be established in My presence. I will punish all his oppressors.
21
Jacob's leader will be one of them; his ruler will issue from him. I will invite him to Me, and he will approach Me, for who would otherwise risk his life to approach Me? [This is] the LORD's declaration.
22
You will be My people, and I will be your God.
Jeremiah 31:3-14
3
the LORD appeared to him from far away. I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore, I have continued to extend faithful love to you.
4
Again I will build you so that you will be rebuilt, Virgin Israel. You will take up your tambourines again and go forth in joyful dancing.
5
You will plant vineyards again on the mountains of Samaria; the planters will plant and will enjoy [the fruit].
6
For there will be a day when watchmen will call out in the hill country of Ephraim: Get up, let's go up to Zion, to the LORD our God!
7
For this is what the LORD says: Sing with joy for Jacob; shout for the chief of the nations! Proclaim, praise, and say: LORD, save Your people, the remnant of Israel!
8
Watch! I am going to bring them from the northern land. I will gather them from remote regions of the earth-- the blind and the lame will be with them, along with those who are pregnant and those about to give birth. They will return here as a great assembly!
9
They will come weeping, but I will bring them back with consolation. I will lead them to wadis [filled] with water by a smooth way where they will not stumble, for I am Israel's Father, and Ephraim is My firstborn.
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].
13
Then the virgin will rejoice with dancing, while young and old men [rejoice] together. I will turn their mourning into joy, give them consolation, and [bring] happiness out of grief.
14
I will give the priests their fill with abundance, and My people will be satisfied with My goodness. [This is] the LORD's declaration.
Amos 9:11-15
11
In that day I will restore the fallen booth of David: I will repair its gaps, restore its ruins, and rebuild it as in the days of old,
12
so that they may possess the remnant of Edom and all the nations that are called by My name-- [this is] the LORD's declaration-- He will do this.
13
Hear this! The days are coming-- the LORD's declaration-- when the plowman will overtake the reaper and the one who treads grapes, the sower of seed. The mountains will drip with sweet wine, and all the hills will flow [with it].
14
I will restore the fortunes of My people Israel. They will rebuild and occupy ruined cities, plant vineyards and drink their wine, make gardens and eat their produce.
15
I will plant them on their land, and they will never again be uprooted from the land I have given them. Yahweh your God has spoken.
Zephaniah 3:14-20
14
Sing for joy, Daughter Zion; shout loudly, Israel! Be glad and rejoice with all [your] heart, Daughter Jerusalem!
15
The LORD has removed your punishment; He has turned back your enemy. The King of Israel, the LORD, is among you; you need no longer fear harm.
16
On that day it will be said to Jerusalem: "Do not fear; Zion, do not let your hands grow weak.
17
The LORD your God is among you, a warrior who saves. He will rejoice over you with gladness. He will bring [you] quietness with His love. He will delight in you with shouts of joy."
18
I will gather those who have been driven from the appointed festivals; [They will be] a tribute from you, and reproach [on her].
19
Yes, at that time I will deal with all who afflict you. I will save the lame and gather the scattered; I will make those who were disgraced throughout the earth receive praise and fame.
20
At that time I will bring you back, yes, at the time I will gather you. I will make you famous and praiseworthy among all the peoples of the earth, when I restore your fortunes before your eyes. Yahweh has spoken.
