"In that coming day," says the LORD, "I will gather together my people who are lame, who have been exiles, filled with grief.
They are weak and far from home, but I will make them strong again, a mighty nation. Then I, the LORD, will rule from Jerusalem a as their king forever."
As for you, O Jerusalem, the citadel of God's people, your royal might and power will come back to you again. The kingship will be restored to my precious Jerusalem.
