"You are saying about this city, 'By the sword, famine and plague1 it will be handed over to the king of Babylon'; but this is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says:
I will surely gather2 them from all the lands where I banish them in my furious anger3 and great wrath; I will bring them back to this place and let them live in safety.438
They will be my people,5 and I will be their God.
I will give them singleness6 of heart and action, so that they will always fear7 me for their own good and the good of their children after them.
I will make an everlasting covenant8 with them: I will never stop doing good to them, and I will inspire9 them to fear me, so that they will never turn away from me.1041
I will rejoice11 in doing them good12 and will assuredly plant13 them in this land with all my heart and soul.14
