6 For I am the Lord, dI change not;
eTherefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.
7 fEven from the days of your fathers ye are gone away from mine ordinances, and have not kept them.
gReturn unto me, and I will return unto you, saith the Lord of hosts.
hBut ye said, Wherein shall we return?
Even this whole nation.
That there may be qmeat in mine house,
And rprove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts,
If I will not sopen you the windows of heaven,
11 And I will rebuke uthe devourer for your sakes,
And he shall not †destroy the fruits of your ground;
Neither vshall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the Lord of hosts.
12 And wall nations shall call you blessed:
For ye shall be xa delightsome land, saith the Lord of hosts.
