ZEFANIABIBLE_BIBLE_BOOK_NAME_26 20:36

ZEFANIABIBLE_BIBLE_BOOK_NAME_23 49:13-26
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."
ZEFANIABIBLE_BIBLE_BOOK_NAME_23 51:3-23
3
For the LORD will comfort Zion; He will comfort all her waste places, and He will make her wilderness like Eden, and her desert like the garden of the LORD. Joy and gladness will be found in her, thanksgiving and melodious song.
4
Pay attention to Me, My people, and listen to Me, My nation; for instruction will come from Me, and My justice for a light to the nations. I will bring it about quickly.
5
My righteousness is near, My salvation appears, and My arms will bring justice to the nations. The coastlands will put their hope in Me, and they will look to My strength.
6
Look up to the heavens, and look at the earth beneath; for the heavens will vanish like smoke, the earth will wear out like a garment, and its inhabitants will die in like manner. But My salvation will last forever, and My righteousness will never be shattered.
7
Listen to Me, you who know righteousness, the people in whose heart is My instruction: do not fear disgrace by men, and do not be shattered by their taunts.
8
For the moth will devour them like a garment, and the worm will eat them like wool. But My righteousness will last forever, and My salvation for all generations.
9
Wake up, wake up! Put on the strength of the LORD's power. Wake up as in days past, as in generations of long ago. Wasn't it You who hacked Rahab to pieces, who pierced the sea monster?
10
Wasn't it You who dried up the sea, the waters of the great deep, who made the sea-bed into a road for the redeemed to pass over?
11
And the ransomed of the LORD will return and come to Zion with singing, crowned with unending joy. Joy and gladness will overtake [them], and sorrow and sighing will flee.
12
I-- I am the One who comforts you. Who are you that you should fear man who dies, or a son of man who is given up like grass?
13
But you have forgotten the LORD, your Maker, who stretched out the heavens and laid the foundations of the earth. You are in constant dread all day long because of the fury of the oppressor, who has set himself to destroy. But where is the fury of the oppressor?
14
The prisoner is soon to be set free; he will not die [and go] to the Pit, and his food will not be lacking.
15
For I am the LORD your God who stirs up the sea so that its waves roar-- His name is Yahweh of Hosts.
16
I have put My words in your mouth, and covered you in the shadow of My hand, in order to plant the heavens, to found the earth, and to say to Zion, "You are My people."
17
Wake yourself, wake yourself up! Stand up, Jerusalem, you who have drunk the cup of His fury from the hand of the LORD; you who have drunk the goblet to the dregs-- the cup that [causes people] to stagger.
18
There is no one to guide her among all the children she has raised; there is no one to take hold of her hand among all the offspring she has brought up.
19
These two things have happened to you: devastation and destruction, famine and sword. Who will grieve for you? How can I comfort you?
20
Your children have fainted; they lie at the head of every street like an antelope in a net. They are full of the LORD's fury, the rebuke of your God.
21
So listen to this, afflicted and drunken one-- but not with wine.
22
This is what your Lord says-- Yahweh, even your God, who defends His people-- "Look, I have removed the cup of staggering from your hand; that goblet, the cup of My fury. You will never drink it again.
23
I will put it into the hands of your tormenters, who said to you: Lie down, so we can walk over you. You made your back like the ground, and like a street for those who walk on it.
ZEFANIABIBLE_BIBLE_BOOK_NAME_24 3:12-24
12
Go, proclaim these words to the north, and say: Return, unfaithful Israel. [This is] the LORD's declaration. I will not look on you with anger, for I am unfailing in My love. [This is] the LORD's declaration. I will not be angry forever.
13
Only acknowledge your guilt-- you have rebelled against the LORD your God. You have scattered your favors to strangers under every green tree and have not obeyed My voice. [This is] the LORD's declaration.
14
"Return, you faithless children"-- [this is] the LORD's declaration-- "for I am your master, and I will take you, one from a city and two from a family, and I will bring you to Zion.
15
I will give you shepherds who are loyal to Me,and they will shepherd you with knowledge and skill.
16
When you multiply and increase in the land, in those days"-- the LORD's declaration-- "no one will say any longer: The ark of the LORD's covenant. It will never come to mind, and no one will remember or miss it. It will never again be made.
17
At that time Jerusalem will be called, The LORD's Throne, and all the nations will be gathered to it, to the name of the LORD in Jerusalem. They will cease to follow the stubbornness of their evil hearts.
18
In those days the house of Judah will join with the house of Israel, and they will come together from the land of the north to the land I have given your ancestors to inherit."
19
I thought: How I long to make you [My] sons and give you a desirable land, the most beautiful inheritance of all the nations. I thought: You will call Me, my Father, and never turn away from Me.
20
However, as a woman may betray her lover, so you have betrayed Me, house of Israel. [This is] the LORD's declaration.
21
A sound is heard on the barren heights, the children of Israel weeping and begging for mercy, for they have perverted their way; they have forgotten the LORD their God.
22
Return, you faithless children. I will heal your unfaithfulness. "Here we are, coming to You, for You are the LORD our God.
23
Surely, falsehood comes from the hills, commotion from the mountains, but the salvation of Israel is only in the LORD our God.
24
From the time of our youth the shameful one has consumed what our fathers have worked for-- their flocks and their herds, their sons and their daughters.
ZEFANIABIBLE_BIBLE_BOOK_NAME_24 30:18-22
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.
ZEFANIABIBLE_BIBLE_BOOK_NAME_24 31:1-37
1
"At that time"-- [this is] the LORD's declaration-- "I will be God of all the families of Israel, and they will be My people."
2
This is what the LORD says: They found favor in the wilderness-- the people who survived the sword. [When] Israel went to find rest,
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.
15
This is what the LORD says: A voice was heard in Ramah, a lament with bitter weeping-- Rachel weeping for her children, refusing to be comforted for her children because they are no more.
16
This is what the LORD says: Keep your voice from weeping and your eyes from tears, for the reward for your work will come-- [this is] the LORD's declaration-- and your children will return from the enemy's land.
17
There is hope for your future-- [this is] the LORD's declaration-- and your children will return to their own territory.
18
I have heard Ephraim moaning: You disciplined me, and I have been disciplined like an untrained calf. Restore me, and I will return, for you, LORD, are my God.
19
After I returned, I repented; After I was instructed, I struck my thigh [in grief]. I was ashamed and humiliated because I bore the disgrace of my youth.
20
Isn't Ephraim a precious son to Me, a delightful child? Whenever I speak against him, I certainly still think about him. Therefore, My inner being yearns for him; I will truly have compassion on him. [This is] the LORD's declaration.
21
Set up road markers for yourself; establish signposts! Keep the highway in mind, the way you have traveled. Return, Virgin Israel! Return to these cities of yours.
22
How long will you turn here and there, faithless daughter? For the LORD creates something new in the land-- a female will shelter a man.
23
This is what the LORD of Hosts, the God of Israel, says: "When I restore their fortunes, they will once again speak this word in the land of Judah and in its cities: May the LORD bless you, righteous settlement, holy mountain.
24
Judah and all its cities will live in it together-- also farmers and those who move with the flocks--
25
for I satisfy the thirsty person and feed all those who are weak."
26
At this I awoke and looked around. My sleep had been most pleasant to me.
27
"The days are coming"-- [this is] the LORD's declaration-- "when I will sow the house of Israel and the house of Judah with the seed of man and the seed of beast.
28
Just as I watched over them to uproot and to tear them down, to demolish and to destroy, and to cause disaster, so will I be attentive to build and to plant them," says the LORD.
29
"In those days, it will never again be said: The fathers have eaten sour grapes, and the children's teeth are set on edge.
30
Rather, each will die for his own wrongdoing. Anyone who eats sour grapes-- his own teeth will be set on edge.
31
"Look, the days are coming"-- [this is] the LORD's declaration-- "when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah.
32
[This one will] not be like the covenant I made with their ancestors when I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt-- a covenant they broke even though I had married them"-- the LORD's declaration.
33
"Instead, this is the covenant I will make with the house of Israel after those days"-- the LORD's declaration. "I will place My law within them and write it on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be My people.
34
No longer will one teach his neighbor or his brother, saying: Know the LORD, for they will all know Me, from the least to the greatest of them"-- the LORD's declaration. "For I will forgive their wrongdoing and never again remember their sin."
35
This is what the LORD says: The One who gives the sun for light by day, the fixed order of moon and stars for light by night, who stirs up the sea and makes its waves roar-- the LORD of Hosts is His name:
36
If this fixed order departs from My presence-- [this is] the LORD's declaration-- then also Israel's descendants will cease to be a nation before Me forever.
37
This is what the LORD says: If the heavens above can be measured and the foundations of the earth below explored, I will reject all of Israel's descendants because of all they have done-- [this is] the LORD's declaration.
ZEFANIABIBLE_BIBLE_BOOK_NAME_24 32:36-41
36
"Now therefore, this is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says to this city about which you said: It has been handed over to Babylon's king through sword, famine, and plague:
37
I am about to gather them from all the lands where I have banished them in My wrath, rage, and great fury, and I will return them to this place and make them live in safety.
38
They will be My people, and I will be their God.
39
I will give them one heart and one way so that for their good and for [the good of] their descendants after them, they will fear Me always.
40
"I will make with them an everlasting covenant: I will never turn away from doing good to them, and I will put fear of Me in their hearts so they will never again turn away from Me.
41
I will rejoice over them to do what is good to them, and I will plant them faithfully in this land with all My mind and heart.
ZEFANIABIBLE_BIBLE_BOOK_NAME_24 33:6-26
6
Yet I will certainly bring health and healing to it and will indeed heal them. I will let them experience the abundance of peace and truth.
7
I will restore the fortunes of Judah and of Israel and will rebuild them as in former times.
8
I will purify them from all the wrongs they have committed against Me, and I will forgive all the wrongs they have committed against Me, rebelling against Me.
9
This city will bear on My behalf a name of joy, praise, and glory before all the nations of the earth, who will hear of all the good I will do for them. They will tremble with awe because of all the good and all the peace I will bring about for them.
10
"This is what the LORD says: In this place which you say is a ruin, without man or beast-- that is, in Judah's cities and Jerusalem's streets that are a desolation without man, without inhabitant, and without beast-- there will be heard again
11
a sound of joy and gladness, the voice of the bridegroom and the bride, and the voice of those saying, Praise the LORD of Hosts, for the LORD is good; His faithful love endures forever as they bring thank offerings to the temple of the LORD. For I will restore the fortunes of the land as in former times, says the LORD.
12
"This is what the LORD of Hosts says: In this desolate place-- without man or beast-- and in all its cities there will once more be a grazing land where shepherds may rest flocks.
13
The flocks will again pass under the hands of the one who counts them in the cities of the hill country, the cities of the Judean foothills, the cities of the Negev, the land of Benjamin-- the cities surrounding Jerusalem and Judah's cities, says the LORD.
14
"Look, the days are coming"-- [this is] the LORD's declaration-- "when I will fulfill the good promises that I have spoken concerning the house of Israel and the house of Judah.
15
In those days and at that time I will cause a Branch of righteousness to sprout up for David, and He will administer justice and righteousness in the land.
16
In those days Judah will be saved, and Jerusalem will dwell securely, and this is what she will be named: The LORD Is Our Righteousness.
17
For this is what the LORD says: David will never fail to have a man sitting on the throne of the house of Israel.
18
The Levitical priests will never fail to have a man always before Me to offer burnt offerings, to burn grain offerings, and to make sacrifices."
19
The word of the LORD came to Jeremiah:
20
"This is what the LORD says: If you can break My covenant with the day and My covenant with the night so that day and night cease to come at their regular time,
21
then also My covenant with My servant David may be broken so that he will not have a son reigning on his throne, and the Levitical priests will not be My ministers.
22
The hosts of heaven cannot be counted; the sand of the sea cannot be measured. So, too, I will make the descendants of My servant David and the Levites who minister to Me innumerable."
23
The word of the LORD came to Jeremiah:
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 34:22-31
22
I will save My flock, and they will no longer be prey for you. I will judge between one sheep and another.
23
I will appoint over them a single shepherd, My servant David, and he will shepherd them. He will tend them himself and will be their shepherd.
24
I, the LORD, will be their God, and My servant David will be a prince among them. I, the LORD, have spoken.
25
"I will make a covenant of peace with them and eliminate dangerous animals in the land, so that they may live securely in the wilderness and sleep in the forest.
26
I will make them and the area around My hill a blessing: I will send down showers in their season-- showers of blessing.
27
The trees of the field will give their fruit, and the land will yield its produce; My flock will be secure in their land. They will know that I am the LORD when I break the bars of their yoke and rescue them from the hands of those who enslave them.
28
They will no longer be prey for the nations, and the wild animals of the land will not consume them. They will live securely, and no one will frighten [them].
29
I will establish for them a place renowned for [its] agriculture, and they will no longer be victims of famine in the land. They will no longer endure the insults of the nations.
30
Then they will know that I, the LORD their God, am with them, and that they, the house of Israel, are My people." [This is] the declaration of the Lord God.
31
"You are My flock, the human flock of My pasture, and I am your God." [This is] the declaration of the Lord God.
ZEFANIABIBLE_BIBLE_BOOK_NAME_26 36:8-15
8
"You, mountains of Israel, will put forth your branches and bear your fruit for My people Israel, since their arrival is near.
9
Look! I am on your side; I will turn toward you, and you will be tilled and sown.
10
I will fill you with people, with the whole house of Israel in its entirety. The cities will be inhabited and the ruins rebuilt.
11
I will fill you with people and animals, and they will increase and be fruitful. I will make you inhabited as you once were and make [you] better off than you were before. Then you will know that I am the LORD.
12
I will cause people, My people Israel, to walk on you; they will possess you, and you will be their inheritance. You will no longer deprive them of [their] children.
13
"This is what the Lord God says: Because people are saying to you: You devour men and deprive your nation of children,
14
therefore, you will no longer devour men and deprive your nation of children." [This is] the declaration of the Lord God.
15
"I will no longer allow the insults of the nations to be heard against you, and you will not have to endure the reproach of the peoples any more; you will no longer cause your nation to stumble." [This is] the declaration of the Lord God.
ZEFANIABIBLE_BIBLE_BOOK_NAME_26 37:11-28
11
Then He said to me, "Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel. Look how they say: Our bones are dried up, and our hope has perished; we are cut off.
12
Therefore, prophesy and say to them: This is what the Lord God says: I am going to open your graves and bring you up from them, My people, and lead you into the land of Israel.
13
You will know that I am the LORD, My people, when I open your graves and bring you up from them.
14
I will put My Spirit in you, and you will live, and I will settle you in your own land. Then you will know that I am the LORD. I have spoken, and I will do [it]." [This is] the declaration of the LORD.
15
The word of the LORD came to me:
16
"Son of man, take a single stick and write on it: Belonging to Judah and the Israelites associated with him. Then take another stick and write on it: Belonging to Joseph-- the stick of Ephraim-- and all the house of Israel associated with him.
17
Then join them together into a single stick so that they become one in your hand.
18
When your people ask you: Won't you explain to us what you mean by these things?--
19
tell them: This is what the Lord God says: I am going to take the stick of Joseph-- which is in the hand of Ephraim-- and the tribes of Israel associated with him, and put them together with the stick of Judah. I will make them into a single stick so that they become one in My hand.
20
"When the sticks you have written on are in your hand and in full view of the people,
21
tell them: This is what the Lord God says: I am going to take the Israelites out of the nations where they have gone. I will gather them from all around and bring them into their own land.
22
I will make them one nation in the land, on the mountains of Israel, and one king will rule over all of them. They will no longer be two nations and will no longer be divided into two kingdoms.
23
They will not defile themselves any more with their idols, their detestable things, and all their transgressions. I will save them from all their apostasies by which they sinned, and I will cleanse them. Then they will be My people, and I will be their God.
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.
25
"They will live in the land that I gave to My servant Jacob, where your fathers lived. They will live in it forever with their children and grandchildren, and My servant David will be their prince forever.
26
I will make a covenant of peace with them; it will be an everlasting covenant with them. I will establish and multiply them, and will set My sanctuary among them forever.
27
My dwelling place will be with them; I will be their God, and they will be My people.
28
When My sanctuary is among them forever, the nations will know that I, the LORD, sanctify Israel."
ZEFANIABIBLE_BIBLE_BOOK_NAME_26 39:25-29
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_30 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.
ZEFANIABIBLE_BIBLE_BOOK_NAME_33 7:14-20
14
Shepherd Your people with Your staff, the flock that is Your possession. They live alone in a scrubland, surrounded by pastures. Let them graze in Bashan and Gilead as in ancient times.
15
I will show them wondrous deeds as in the days of your exodus from the land of Egypt.
16
Nations will see and be ashamed of all their power. They will put [their] hands over [their] mouths, and their ears will become deaf.
17
They will lick the dust like a snake; they will come trembling out of their hiding places like reptiles slithering on the ground. They will tremble before the LORD our God; they will stand in awe of You.
18
Who is a God like You, removing iniquity and passing over rebellion for the remnant of His inheritance? He does not hold on to His anger forever, because He delights in faithful love.
19
He will again have compassion on us; He will vanquish our iniquities. You will cast all our sins into the depths of the sea.
20
You will show loyalty to Jacob and faithful love to Abraham, as You swore to our fathers from days long ago.
ZEFANIABIBLE_BIBLE_BOOK_NAME_36 3:9-20
9
For I will then restore pure speech to the peoples so that all of them may call on the name of Yahweh and serve Him with a single purpose.
10
From beyond the rivers of Cush My supplicants, My dispersed people, will bring an offering to Me.
11
On that day you will not be put to shame because of everything you have done in rebelling against Me. For then I will remove your boastful braggarts from among you, and you will never again be haughty on My holy mountain.
12
I will leave a meek and humble people among you, and they will trust in the name of Yahweh.
13
The remnant of Israel will no longer do wrong or tell lies; a deceitful tongue will not be found in their mouths. But they will pasture and lie down, with nothing to make [them] afraid.
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.

12
Then the Angel of the LORD responded, "How long, LORD of Hosts, will You withhold mercy from Jerusalem and the cities of Judah that You have been angry with these 70 years?"
13
The LORD replied with kind and comforting words to the angel who was speaking with me.
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.
17

20
The LORD of Hosts says this: "Peoples will yet come, the residents of many cities;
21
the residents of one city will go to another, saying: Let's go at once to plead for the LORD's favor and to seek the LORD of Hosts. I am also going.
22
Many peoples and strong nations will come to seek the LORD of Hosts in Jerusalem and to plead for the LORD's favor."
23
The LORD of Hosts says this: "In those days, 10 men from nations of every language will grab the robe of a Jewish man tightly, urging: Let us go with you, for we have heard that God is with you."
