‘And do not be dismayed, O Israel;

For behold, I will save you bfrom afar

And your 1offspring from the land of their captivity.

And Jacob will return and will be cquiet and at ease,

And dno one will make him afraid.

11 ‘For aI am with you,’ declares the Lord, ‘to save you;

For I will bdestroy completely all the nations where I have scattered you,

Only I will cnot destroy you completely.

But I will dchasten you justly

And will by no means leave you unpunished.’

‘Your wound is incurable

And your ainjury is serious.

13 ‘There is no one to plead your cause;

No healing for your sore,

aNo recovery for you.

14 ‘All your alovers have forgotten you,

They do not seek you;

For I have bwounded you with the wound of an enemy,

With the cpunishment of a dcruel one,

Because your einiquity is great

And your fsins are numerous.

15 ‘Why do you cry out over your injury?

Your pain is incurable.

Because your iniquity is great

And your sins are numerous,

I have done these things to you.

And all your adversaries, every one of them, bwill go into captivity;

And those who plunder you will be for plunder,

And all who prey upon you I will give for prey.

And I will heal you of your wounds,’ declares the Lord,

And bhave compassion on his dwelling places;

And the ccity will be rebuilt on its ruin,

And the dpalace will stand on its rightful place.

19 ‘From them will proceed athanksgiving

And the voice of those who 1bcelebrate;

And I will cmultiply them and they will not be diminished;

I will also dhonor them and they will not be insignificant.

20 ‘1Their children also will be as formerly,

And 2their congregation shall be aestablished before Me;

And I will punish all 2their oppressors.

21 ‘1Their aleader shall be one of them,

And 1their ruler shall come forth from 1their midst;

And I will bbring him near and he shall approach Me;

For 2who would dare to risk his life to capproach Me?’ declares the Lord.

And I will be your God.’ ”

Wrath has gone forth,

A 1sweeping tempest;

It will burst on the head of the wicked.

Until He has performed and until He has accomplished

The intent of His heart;

In the blatter days you will understand this.
