31 “At that time”—this is the Lord’s declaration—“I will be the God of all the families of Israel,g and they will be my people.”
The people who survived the sword
found favor in the wilderness.h
When Israel went to find rest,i
3 the Lord appeared to himA from far away.
I have loved you with an everlasting love;j
therefore, I have continued to extend faithful love to you.k
You will take up your tambourines againm
and go out in joyful dancing.
5 You will plant vineyards againn
on the mountains of Samaria;
the planters will plant and will enjoy the fruit.o
in the hill country of Ephraim,
“Come, let’s go up to Zion,p
to the Lord our God!”
