She dtrusted not in the Lord; she drew not near to her God.
They gnaw not the bones till the morrow.
I made their streets waste, rrthat none passeth by:
Their cities are destroyed, so that there is no man, sthat there is none inhabitant.
uSo their dwelling should not be cut off, howsoever I punished them:
8 Therefore xwait ye upon me, saith the Lord,
Until the day that I rise up to ythe prey:
For my determination is zto gather the nations,
zThat I may assemble the kingdoms,
To pour upon them mine indignation, even all my fierce anger:
For aall the earth shall be devoured with the fire of my jealousy.
That they may all call upon the name of the Lord,
To serve him with one †consent.
Wherein thou hast transgressed against me:
For then I will take away out of the midst of thee them ithat rejoice in thy pride,
12 I will also leave in the midst of thee lan afflicted and poor people,
And lthey shall trust in the name of the Lord.
pNeither shall a deceitful tongue be found in their mouth:
Be glad and rejoice with all the heart, O daughter of Jerusalem.
xThou shalt not see evil any more.
17 The Lord thy God win the midst of thee is mighty;
He will save, bhe will rejoice over thee with joy;
†He will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing.
To whom †the reproach of it was a burden.
And I will gsave her that halteth,
In every land †where they have been put to shame.
When lI turn back your captivity before your eyes, saith the Lord.
