Scattering and Gathering

 

RESTORATION OF ISRAEL

Ezekiel 20

 33As I live, says YHVH ELOHIM, surely with a mighty hand, and with an outstretched arm, and with wrath poured out, will I be king over you:  34and I will bring you out from the peoples, and will GATHER you out of the countries in which you are SCATTERED, with a mighty hand, and with an outstretched arm, and with wrath poured out;  35and I will bring you into the wilderness of the peoples, and there will I enter into judgment with you face to face.  36Like as I entered into judgment with your fathers in the wilderness of the land of Egypt, so will I enter into judgment with you, says YHVH ELOHIM.  37I will cause you to pass under the rod, and I will bring you into the bond of the covenant;  38and I will purge out from among you the rebels, and those who disobey against me; I will bring them forth out of the land where they live, but they shall not enter into Eretz-Israel: and you shall know that I am YHVH.  39As for you, HOUSE OF ISRAEL, thus says YHVH ELOHIM: Go, serve everyone his idols, and hereafter also, if you will not listen to me; but my HOLY NAME you shall no more profane with your gifts, and with your idols.  40For in my holy mountain, in the mountain of the height of Israel, says YHVH ELOHIM, there shall all the HOUSE OF ISRAEL, all of them, serve me in the land: there will I accept them, and there will I require your offerings, and the first fruits of your offerings, with all your holy things.  41As a pleasant aroma will I accept you, when I bring you out from the peoples, and GATHER you out of the countries in which you have been SCATTERED; and I will be sanctified IN YOU in the sight of the nations.  42You shall know that I am YHVH, when I shall bring you into Eretz-Israel, into the country which I swore to give to your fathers.  43There you shall remember your ways, and all your doings, in which you have polluted yourselves; and you shall loathe yourselves In your own sight for all your evils that you have committed.  44You shall know that I am YHVH, when I have dealt with you for my NAME’S SAKE, not according to your evil ways, nor according to your corrupt doings, you HOUSE OF ISRAEL, says YHVH ELOHIM.

Ezekiel 37

1The hand of YHVH was upon me, and carried me out in the spirit of YHVH, and set me down in the midst of the valley which was full of bones,  2And caused me to pass by them round about: and, behold, there were very many in the open valley; and, lo, they were very dry.  3And he said unto me, SON OF MAN, can these bones live? And I answered, O YHVH ELOHIM, you know.  4Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O all of you dry bones, hear the word of YHVH.  5Thus says YHVH ELOHIM unto these bones; Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and all of you shall live:  6And I will lay sinews upon you, and will bring up flesh upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath IN YOU, and all of you shall live; and all of you shall know that I am YHVH.  7So I prophesied as I was commanded: and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and behold a shaking, and the bones came together, bone to his bone.  8And when I beheld, lo, the sinews and the flesh came up upon them, and the skin covered them above: but there was no breath in them.  9Then said he unto me, Prophesy unto the wind, prophesy, SON OF MAN, and say to the wind, Thus says YHVH ELOHIM; Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live.  10So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army.  11Then he said unto me, SON OF MAN, these bones are the whole HOUSE OF ISRAEL: behold, they say, Our bones are dried, and our hope is lost: we are cut off for our parts.  12Therefore prophesy and say unto them, Thus says YHVH ELOHIM; Behold, O my people, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel.  13And all of you shall know that I am YHVH, when I have opened your graves, O my people, and brought you up out of your graves,  14And shall put my spirit IN YOU, and all of you shall live, and I shall place you In your own land: then shall all of you know that I YHVH have spoken it, and performed it, says YHVH.

Therefore say to the HOUSE OF ISRAEL, thus said the

YHVH ELOHIM; I do not this for your sakes, O HOUSE OF ISRAEL, but for my HOLY NAME’S SAKE, which you have profaned among the heathen, where you went.  And I will sanctify my great name, which was profaned among the heathen, which you have profaned in the middle of them; and the heathen shall know that I am YHVH, said YHVH ELOHIM, when I shall be sanctified IN YOU before their eyes. For I will take you from among the heathen, and GATHER you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land. Then will I sprinkle clean water on you, and you shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you. A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put withIN YOU: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you a heart of flesh. And I will put my spirit withIN YOU, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and you shall keep my judgments, and do them. And you shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; and you shall be my people, and I will be your ELOHIM. I will also save you from all your uncleannesses: and I will call for the corn, and will increase it, and lay no famine on you. And I will multiply the fruit of the tree, and the increase of the field, that you shall receive no more reproach of famine among the heathen. Then shall you remember your own evil ways, and your doings that were not good, and shall loathe yourselves In your own sight for your iniquities and for your abominations. Not for your sakes do I this, said YHVH ELOHIM, be it known to you: be ashamed and confounded for your own ways, O HOUSE OF ISRAEL. Thus said YHVH ELOHIM; In the day that I shall have cleansed you from all your iniquities I will also cause you to dwell in the cities, and the wastes shall be built. And the desolate land shall be tilled, whereas it lay desolate in the sight of all that passed by. And they shall say, This land that was desolate is become like the garden of Eden; and the waste and desolate and ruined cities are become fenced, and are inhabited. Then the heathen that are left round about you shall know that I YHVH build the ruined places, and plant that that was desolate: I YHVH have spoken it, and I will do it. Thus said YHVH ELOHIM; I will yet for this be inquired of by the HOUSE OF ISRAEL, to do it for them; I will increase them with men like a flock. As the holy flock, as the flock of Jerusalem in her solemn feasts; so shall the waste cities be filled with flocks of men: and they shall know that I am YHVH.

Jeremiah 16:14-21

Therefore, behold, the days come, said YHVH, that it shall no more be said, YHVH lives, that brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt; But, YHVH lives, that brought up the children of Israel from the land of the north, and from all the lands where he had driven them: and I will bring them again into their land that I gave to their fathers. Behold, I will send for many fishers, said YHVH, and they shall fish them; and after will I send for many hunters, and they shall hunt them from every mountain, and from every hill, and out of the holes of the rocks. For my eyes are on all their ways: they are not hid from my face, neither is their iniquity hid from my eyes. And first I will recompense their iniquity and their sin double; because they have defiled my land, they have filled my INHERITANCE with the carcasses of their detestable and abominable things. O YHVH, my strength, and my fortress, and my refuge in the day of affliction, the Gentiles shall come to you from the ends of the earth, and shall say, Surely our fathers have INHERITED lies, vanity, and things wherein there is no profit. Shall a man make ELOHIMs to himself, and they are no ELOHIMs? Therefore, behold, I will this once cause them to know, I will cause them to know my hand and my might; and they shall know that my name is YHVH.

SHALL: 44X

The hand of the Lord was upon me, and carried me out in the spirit of the Lord, and set me down in the midst of the valley which was full of bones,

And caused me to pass by them round about: and, behold, there were very many in the open valley; and, lo, they were very dry.

And he said unto me, SON OF MAN, can these bones live? And I answered, O Lord God, thou knowest.

Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of the Lord.

Thus saith the Lord God unto these bones; Behold, I WILL cause breath to enter into you, and ye SHALL live:

And I WILL lay sinews upon you,

and WILL bring up flesh upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath IN YOU, and ye SHALL live; and ye SHALL know that I am the Lord.

So I prophesied as I was commanded: and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and behold a shaking, and the bones came together, bone to his bone.

And when I beheld, lo, the sinews and the flesh came up upon them, and the skin covered them above: but there was no breath in them.

Then said he unto me, Prophesy unto the wind, prophesy, SON OF MAN, and say to the wind, Thus saith the Lord God; Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live.

10  So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army.

11  Then he said unto me, SON OF MAN, these bones are the whole HOUSE OF ISRAEL: behold, they say, Our bones are dried, and our hope is lost: we are cut off for our parts.

12  Therefore prophesy and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, O my people, I WILL open your graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel.

13  And ye SHALL know that I am the Lord, when I HAVE opened your graves, O my people, and brought you up out of your graves,

14  And SHALL put my spirit IN YOU, and ye SHALL live, and I SHALL place you In your own land: then SHALL ye know that I the Lord have spoken it, and performed it, saith the Lord.

15  The word of the Lord came again unto me, saying,

16  Moreover, thou SON OF MAN, take thee one stick, and write upon it, For Judah, and for the children of Israel his companions: then take another stick, and write upon it, For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim, and for all the HOUSE OF ISRAEL his companions:

17  And join them one to another into one stick; and THEY SHALL become one in thine hand.

18  And when the children of thy people SHALL speak unto thee, saying, Wilt thou not shew us what thou meanest by these?

19  Say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I WILL take the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes of Israel his fellows, and will put them with him, even with the stick of Judah, and make them one stick, and THEY SHALL be one in mine hand.

20  And the sticks whereon thou writest SHALL be in thine hand before their eyes.

21  And say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I WILL take the children of Israel from among the heathen, whither they be gone, and will GATHER them on every side, and bring them into their own land:

22  And I WILL make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and one king SHALL be king to them all: and THEY SHALL be no more two nations, neither SHALL they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all:

23  Neither SHALL they defile themselves any more with their idols, nor with their detestable things, nor with any of their transgressions: but I WILL save them out of all their dwelling places, wherein they have sinned, and will cleanse them: so SHALL they be my people, and I WILL be their God.

24  And David my servant SHALL be king over them; and they all SHALL have one shepherd: THEY SHALL also walk in my judgments, and observe my statutes, and do them.

25  And THEY SHALL dwell in the land that I HAVE given unto Jacob my servant, where in your fathers have dwelt; and THEY SHALL dwell therein, even they, and their children, and their children's children for ever: and my servant David SHALL be their prince for ever.

26  Moreover I WILL make a covenant of peace with them; it SHALL be an EVERLASTING COVENANT with them: and I WILL place them, and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary in the midst of them for evermore.

27  My tabernacle also SHALL be with them: yea, I WILL be their God, and THEY SHALL be my people.

28  And the heathen SHALL know that I the Lord do sanctify Israel, when my sanctuary SHALL be in the midst of them for evermore.

Ezekiel 36:22-24

22  Therefore say unto the HOUSE OF ISRAEL, Thus saith the Lord God; I do not this for your sakes, O HOUSE OF ISRAEL, but for mine HOLY NAME’S SAKE, which ye have profaned among the heathen, whither ye went.

23  And I WILL sanctify my great name, which was profaned among the heathen, which ye have profaned in the midst of them; and the heathen SHALL know that I am the Lord, saith the Lord God, whenI SHALL be sanctified IN YOU before their eyes.

24  For I WILL take you from among the heathen, and GATHER you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land.

Jeremiah 23:7-8

Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that THEY SHALL no more say, The Lord liveth, which brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt;

But, The Lord liveth, which brought up and which led the seed of the HOUSE OF ISRAEL out of the north country, and from all countries whither I had driven them; and THEY SHALL dwell in their own land.

Isaiah 11:11-12

11  And it SHALL come to pass in that day, that the Lord SHALL set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which SHALL be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea.

12  And he SHALL set up an ensign for the nations, and SHALL assemble the outcasts of Israel, and GATHER together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.

Amos 9:14-15

14  And I WILL bring again the captivity of my people of Israel, and THEY SHALL build the waste cities, and inhabit them; and THEY SHALL plant vineyards, and drink the wine thereof; THEY SHALL also make gardens, and eat the fruit of them.

15  And I WILL plant them upon their land, and THEY SHALL no more be pulled up out of their land which I HAVE given them, saith the Lord thy God.

Isaiah 43:5-7

Fear not: for I am with thee: I WILL bring thy seed from the east, and GATHER thee from the west;

I WILL say to the north, Give up; and to the south, Keep not back: bring my sons from far, and my daughters from the ends of the earth;

Even every one that is called by my name: for I HAVE created him for my glory, I HAVE formed him; yea, I HAVE made him.

Ezekiel 37:22

22  And I WILL make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and one king SHALL be king to them all: and THEY SHALL be no more two nations, neither SHALL they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all:

Ezekiel 37

The hand of YHVH was on me, and carried me out in the spirit of YHVH, and set me down in the middle of the valley which was full of bones, And caused me to pass by them round about: and, behold, there were very many in the open valley; and, see, they were very dry. And he said to me, SON OF MAN, can these bones live? And I answered, O YHVH ELOHIM, you know. Again he said to me, Prophesy on these bones, and say to them, O you dry bones, hear the word of YHVH. Thus said YHVH ELOHIM to these bones; Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and you shall live: And I will lay sinews on you, and will bring up flesh on you, and cover you with skin, and put breath IN YOU, and you shall live; and you shall know that I am YHVH. So I prophesied as I was commanded: and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and behold a shaking, and the bones came together, bone to his bone. And when I beheld, see, the sinews and the flesh came up on them, and the skin covered them above: but there was no breath in them. Then said he to me, Prophesy to the wind, prophesy, SON OF MAN, and say to the wind, Thus said YHVH ELOHIM; Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe on these slain, that they may live. So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood up on their feet, an exceeding great army. Then he said to me, SON OF MAN, these bones are the whole HOUSE OF ISRAEL: behold, they say, Our bones are dried, and our hope is lost: we are cut off for our parts. Therefore prophesy and say to them, Thus said YHVH ELOHIM; Behold, O my people, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel. And you shall know that I am YHVH, when I have opened your graves, O my people, and brought you up out of your graves, And shall put my spirit IN YOU, and you shall live, and I shall place you in your own land: then shall you know that I YHVH have spoken it, and performed it, said YHVH. The word of YHVH came again to me, saying, Moreover, you SON OF MAN, take you one stick, and write on it, For Judah, and for the children of Israel his companions: then take another stick, and write on it, For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim and for all the HOUSE OF ISRAEL his companions: And join them one to another into one stick; and they shall become one in your hand. And when the children of your people shall speak to you, saying, Will you not show us what you mean by these? Say to them, Thus said YHVH ELOHIM; Behold, I will take the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes of Israel his fellows, and will put them with him, even with the stick of Judah, and make them one stick, and they shall be one in my hand. And the sticks where on you write shall be in your hand before their eyes. And say to them, Thus said YHVH ELOHIM; Behold, I will take the children of Israel from among the heathen, where they be gone, and will GATHER them on every side, and bring them into their own land: And I will make them one nation in the land on the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king to them all: and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all. Neither shall they defile themselves any more with their idols, nor with their detestable things, nor with any of their transgressions: but I will save them out of all their dwelling places, wherein they have sinned, and will cleanse them: so shall they be my people, and I will be their ELOHIM. And David my servant shall be king over them; and they all shall have one shepherd: they shall also walk in my judgments, and observe my statutes, and do them. And they shall dwell in the land that I have given to Jacob my servant, where in your fathers have dwelled; and they shall dwell therein, even they, and their children, and their children's children for ever: and my servant David shall be their prince for ever. Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them; it shall be an EVERLASTING COVENANT with them: and I will place them, and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary in the middle of them for ever more. My tabernacle also shall be with them: yes, I will be their ELOHIM, and they shall be my people. And the heathen shall know that I YHVH do sanctify Israel, when my sanctuary shall be in the middle of them for ever more.

Ezekiel 39:7-10

So will I make my HOLY NAME known in the middle of my people Israel; and I will not let them pollute my HOLY NAME any more: and the heathen shall know that I am YHVH, the Holy One in Israel. Behold, it is come, and it is done, said YHVH ELOHIM; this is the day whereof I have spoken.

And they that dwell in the cities of Israel shall go forth, and shall set on fire and burn the weapons, both the shields and the bucklers, the bows and the arrows, and the hand staves, and the spears, and they shall burn them with fire seven years: So that they shall take no wood out of the field, neither cut down any out of the forests; for they shall burn the weapons with fire: and they shall spoil those that spoiled them, and rob those that robbed them, said YHVH ELOHIM.

Ezekiel 39:7-8, 25-29

So will I make my HOLY NAME known in the middle of my people Israel; and I will not let them pollute my HOLY NAME any more: and the heathen shall know that I am YHVH, the Holy One in Israel. Behold, it is come, and it is done, said YHVH ELOHIM; this is the day whereof I have spoken.

Therefore thus said YHVH ELOHIM; Now will I bring again the captivity of Jacob, and have mercy on the whole HOUSE OF ISRAEL, and will be jealous for my HOLY NAME; After that they have borne their shame, and all their trespasses whereby they have trespassed against me, when they dwelled safely in their land, and none made them afraid. When I have brought them again from the people, and GATHERED them out of their enemies' lands, and am sanctified in them in the sight of many nations; Then shall they know that I am YHVH their ELOHIM, which caused them to be led into captivity among the heathen: but I have GATHERED them to their own land, and have left none of them any more there. Neither will I hide my face any more from them: for I have poured out my spirit on the HOUSE OF ISRAEL, said YHVH ELOHIM.

Romans 11

I say then, Hath YHVH cast away his people? By no means. For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin.   YHVH hath not cast away his people which he foreknew. Know ye not what the scripture saith of EliYah? how he maketh intercession to YHVH against Israel, saying,   YHVH, they have killed thy prophets, and digged down thine altars; and I am left alone, and they seek my life.   But what saith the answer of YHVH unto him? I have reserved to myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to the image of Baal.   Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of favour.   And if by favour, then is it no more of works: otherwise favour is no more favour. But if it be of works, then is it no more favour: otherwise work is no more work.   What then? Israel hath not obtained that which he seeketh for; but the election hath obtained it, and the rest were blinded   (According as it is written, YHVH hath given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear;) unto this day.   And David saith, Let their table be made a snare, and a trap, and a stumbling block, and a recompence unto them:   Let their eyes be darkened, that they may not see, and bow down their back alway.   I say then, Have they stumbled that they should fall? By no means: but rather through their fall salvation is come unto the Gentiles, for to provoke them to jealousy.   Now if the fall of them be the riches of the world, and the diminishing of them the riches of the Gentiles; how much more their fulness?   For I speak to you Gentiles, inasmuch as I am the apostle of the Gentiles, I magnify mine office:   If by any means I may provoke to emulation them which are my flesh, and might save some of them.   For if the casting away of them be the reconciling of the world, what shall the receiving of them be, but life from the dead?   For if the firstfruit be holy, the lump is also holy: and if the root be holy, so are the branches.   And if some of the branches be broken off, and thou, being a wild olive tree, wert graffed in among them, and with them partakest of the root and fatness of the olive tree;   Boast not against the branches. But if thou boast, thou bearest not the root, but the root thee.   Thou wilt say then, The branches were broken off, that I might be graffed in.   Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not highminded, but fear:   For if YHVH spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee.   Behold therefore the goodness and severity of YHVH: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off.   And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be graffed in: for YHVH is able to graff them in again.   For if thou wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert graffed contrary to nature into a good olive tree: how much more shall these, which be the natural branches, be graffed into their own olive tree?   For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.   And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away wickedness from Jacob:   For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins.   As concerning the glad tidings, they are enemies for your sakes: but as touching the election, they are beloved for the fathers' sakes.   For the gifts and calling of YHVH are without repentance.   For as ye in times past have not believed YHVH, yet have now obtained mercy through their unbelief:   Even so have these also now not believed, that through your mercy they also may obtain mercy.   For YHVH hath concluded them all in unbelief, that he might have mercy upon all.   O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of YHVH! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!   For who hath known the mind of YHVH? or who hath been his counseller?   Or who hath first given to him, and it shall be recompensed unto him again?   For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever.


THEY SHALL REBUILD THE LAND AND THE CITIES

Ezekiel 36:22-24

22  Therefore say unto the HOUSE OF ISRAEL, Thus saith YHVH ELOHIM; I do not this for your sakes, O HOUSE OF ISRAEL, but for mine HOLY NAME’S SAKE, which ye have profaned among the heathen, whither ye went.

23  And I will sanctify my great name, which was profaned among the heathen, which ye have profaned in the midst of them; and the heathen shall know that I am YHVH, saith YHVH ELOHIM, when I shall be sanctified IN YOU before their eyes.

And I will bring them out from the people, and GATHER them from the countries, and will bring them to their own land, and feed them upon the mountains of Israel by the rivers, and in all the inhabited places of the country. (Ezekiel 34:13)

And say unto them, Thus saith YHVH ELOHIM; Behold, I will take the children of Israel from among the heathen, whither they be gone, and will GATHER them on every side, and bring them into their own land: (Ezekiel 37:21)

After many days thou shalt be visited: in the latter years thou shalt come into the land that is brought back from the sword, and is GATHERED out of many people, against the mountains of Israel, which have been always waste: but it is brought forth out of the nations, and they shall dwell safely all of them. (Ezekiel 38:8)

I will surely assemble, O Jacob, all of thee; I will surely GATHER the remnant of Israel; I will put them together as the sheep of Bozrah, as the flock in the midst of their fold: they shall make great noise by reason of the multitude of men. (Micah 2:12)

10  YHVH hath made bare his holy arm in the eyes of all the nations; and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our ELOHIM.

Isaiah 58:11-14

11  And YHVH shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not.

12  And they that shall be of thee shall build the old waste places: thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generations; and thou shalt be called, The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in.

13  If thou turn away thy foot from the sabbath, from doing thy pleasure on my holy day; and call the sabbath a delight, the holy of YHVH, honourable; and shalt honour him, not doing thine own ways, nor finding thine own pleasure, nor speaking thine own words:

14  Then shalt thou delight thyself in YHVH; and I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth, and feed thee with the heritage of Jacob thy father: for the mouth of YHVH hath spoken it.

Isaiah 60:9-22

Surely the isles shall wait for me, and the ships of Tarshish first, to bring thy sons from far, their silver and their gold with them, unto the name of YHVH thy ELOHIM, and to the Holy One of Israel, because he hath glorified thee.

10  And the sons of strangers shall build up thy walls, and their kings shall minister unto thee: for in my wrath I smote thee, but in my favour have I had mercy on thee.

11  Therefore thy gates shall be open continually; they shall not be shut day nor night; that men may bring unto thee the forces of the Gentiles, and that their kings may be brought.

12  For the nation and kingdom that will not serve thee shall perish; yea, those nations shall be utterly wasted.

13  The glory of Lebanon shall come unto thee, the fir tree, the pine tree, and the box together, to beautify the place of my sanctuary; and I will make the place of my feet glorious.

14  The sons also of them that afflicted thee shall come bending unto thee; and all they that despised thee shall bow themselves down at the soles of thy feet; and they shall call thee, The city of YHVH, The Zion of the Holy One of Israel.

15  Whereas thou hast been forsaken and hated, so that no man went through thee, I will make thee an eternal excellency, a joy of many generations.

16  Thou shalt also suck the milk of the Gentiles, and shalt suck the breast of kings: and thou shalt know that I YHVH am thy Saviour and thy Redeemer, the mighty One of Jacob.

17  For brass I will bring gold, and for iron I will bring silver, and for wood brass, and for stones iron: I will also make thy officers peace, and thine exactors RIGHTEOUSNESS.

18  Violence shall no more be heard in thy land, wasting nor destruction within thy borders; but thou shalt call thy walls Salvation, and thy gates Praise.

19  The sun shall be no more thy light by day; neither for brightness shall the moon give light unto thee: but YHVH shall be unto thee an everlasting light, and thy ELOHIM thy glory.

20  Thy sun shall no more go down; neither shall thy moon withdraw itself: for YHVH shall be thine everlasting light, and the days of thy mourning shall be ended.

21  Thy people also shall be all RIGHTEOUS: they shall INHERIT the land for ever, the branch of my planting, the work of my hands, that I may be glorified.

22  A little one shall become a thousand, and a small one a strong nation: I YHVH will hasten it in his time.

Isaiah 61:1-7

The Spirit of YHVH ELOHIM is upon me; because YHVH hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to PROCLAIM liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;

To PROCLAIM the acceptable year of YHVH, and the day of vengeance of our ELOHIM; to comfort all that mourn;

To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of RIGHTEOUSNESS, the planting of YHVH, that he might be glorified.

And they shall build the old wastes, they shall raise up the former desolations, and they shall repair the waste cities, the desolations of many generations.

And strangers shall stand and feed your flocks, and the sons of the alien shall be your plowmen and your vinedressers.

But ye shall be named the Priests of YHVH: men shall call you the Ministers of our ELOHIM: ye shall eat the riches of the Gentiles, and in their glory shall ye boast yourselves.

For your shame ye shall have double; and for confusion they shall rejoice in their portion: therefore in their land they shall possess the double: everlasting joy shall be unto them.

Leviticus 26:33-46

33  And I will SCATTER you among the heathen, and will draw out a sword after you: and your land shall be desolate, and your cities waste.

34  Then shall the land enjoy her sabbaths, as long as it lieth desolate, and ye be in your enemies' land; even then shall the land rest, and enjoy her sabbaths.

35  As long as it lieth desolate it shall rest; because it did not rest in your sabbaths, when ye dwelt upon it.

36  And upon them that are left alive of you I will send a faintness into their hearts in the lands of their enemies; and the sound of a shaken leaf shall chase them; and they shall flee, as fleeing from a sword; and they shall fall when none pursueth.

37  And they shall fall one upon another, as it were before a sword, when none pursueth: and ye shall have no power to stand before your enemies.

38  And ye shall perish among the heathen, and the land of your enemies shall eat you up.

39  And they that are left of you shall pine away in their iniquity in your enemies' lands; and also in the iniquities of their fathers shall they pine away with them.

40  If they shall confess their iniquity, and the iniquity of their fathers, with their trespass which they trespassed against me, and that also they have walked contrary unto me;

41  And that I also have walked contrary unto them, and have brought them into the land of their enemies; if then their uncircumcised hearts be humbled, and they then accept of the punishment of their iniquity:

42  Then will I remember my covenant with Jacob, and also my covenant with Isaac, and also my covenant with Abraham will I remember; and I will remember the land.

43  The land also shall be left of them, and shall enjoy her sabbaths, while she lieth desolate without them: and they shall accept of the punishment of their iniquity: because, even because they despised my judgments, and because their soul abhorred my statutes.

44  And yet for all that, when they be in the land of their enemies, I will not cast them away, neither will I abhor them, to destroy them utterly, and to break my covenant with them: for I am YHVH their ELOHIM.

45  But I will for their sakes remember the covenant of their ancestors, whom I brought forth out of the land of Egypt in the sight of the heathen, that I might be their ELOHIM: I am YHVH.

46  These are the statutes and judgments and laws, which YHVH made between him and the children of Israel in mount Sinai by the hand of Moses.
