11 A day will come for rebuilding your walls;t

on that day your boundary will be extended.u

12 On that day people will come to youv

from Assyria and the cities of Egypt,

even from Egypt to the Euphrates River

and from sea to sea

and mountain to mountain.

13 Then the earth will become a wastelandw

because of its inhabitants

and as a result of their actions.x


14 Shepherd your peopley with your staff,z

the flock that is your possession.

They live aloneaa in a woodland

surrounded by pastures.

Let them graze in Bashan and Gileadab

as in ancient times.ac

15 I will perform miracles for themB

as in the days of your exodus

from the land of Egypt.ad

16 Nations will see and be ashamed

ofC all their power.

They will put their hands over their mouths,ae

and their ears will become deaf.

17 They will lick the dust like a snake;af

they will come trembling out of their hiding placesag

like reptiles slithering on the ground.ah

They will tremble in the presence of the Lord our God;ai

they will stand in awe of you.

18 Who is a God like you,aj

forgiving iniquity and passing over rebellionak

for the remnant of his inheritance?al

He does not hold on to his anger foreveram

because he delights in faithful love.an

19 He will again have compassion on us;

he will vanquish our iniquities.ao

You will cast all ourD sins

into the depths of the sea.ap

20 You will show loyalty to Jacobaq

and faithful love to Abraham,

as you swore to our fathersar

from days long ago.
