"I'm calling a meeting, Jacob. I want everyone back - all the survivors of Israel. I'll get them together in one place - like sheep in a fold, like cattle in a corral - a milling throng of homebound people!
Then I, God, will burst all confinements and lead them out into the open. They'll follow their King. I will be out in front leading them."
