God Will Restore Israel to Her Land

33 “As I live,” declares the Lord God, “surely with a mighty hand and with an aoutstretched arm and with wrath poured out, I shall be bking over you. 34 “I will abring you out from the peoples and gather you from the lands where you are scattered, with a mighty hand and with an outstretched arm and with bwrath poured out; 35 and I will bring you into the awilderness of the peoples, and there I will enter into judgment with you face to face. 36 “As I aentered into judgment with your fathers in the bwilderness of the land of Egypt, so I will enter into judgment with you,” declares the Lord God. 37 “I will make you apass under the rod, and I will bring you into the bond of the covenant; 38 and I will apurge from you the rebels and those who transgress against Me; I will bring them out of the land where they sojourn, but they will bnot enter the 1land of Israel. Thus you will know that I am the Lord.

39 “As for you, O house of Israel,” thus says the Lord God, “aGo, serve everyone his idols; 1but later you will surely listen to Me, and My holy name you will bprofane no longer with your gifts and with your idols. 40 “For on My holy mountain, on the high mountain of Israel,” declares the Lord God, “there the whole house of Israel, aall of them, will serve Me in the land; there I will baccept them and there I will 1seek your contributions and the choicest of your gifts, with all your holy things. 41 1As a soothing aroma I will accept you when I abring you out from the peoples and gather you from the lands where you are scattered; and I will prove Myself bholy among you in the sight of the nations. 42 “And ayou will know that I am the Lord, bwhen I bring you into the land of Israel, into the cland which I swore to give to your forefathers. 43 “There you will aremember your ways and all your deeds with which you have defiled yourselves; and you will bloathe yourselves in your own 1sight for all the evil things that you have done. 44 “Then ayou will know that I am the Lord when I have dealt with you bfor My name’s sake, not according to your evil ways or according to your corrupt deeds, O house of Israel,” declares the Lord God.’ ”
