"Come! Come! Flee from the land of the north," declares the LORD, "for I have scattered1 you to the four winds of heaven,"2 declares the LORD.37
"Come, O Zion! Escape,4 you who live in the Daughter of Babylon!"58
For this is what the LORD Almighty says: "After he has honored me and has sent me against the nations that have plundered you--for whoever touches you touches the apple of his eye6--
I will surely raise my hand against them so that their slaves will plunder them.a7 Then you will know that the LORD Almighty has sent me.810
"Shout9 and be glad, O Daughter of Zion.10 For I am coming,11 and I will live among you,"12 declares the LORD.1311
"Many nations will be joined with the LORD in that day and will become my people.14 I will live among you and you will know that the LORD Almighty has sent me to you.1512
The LORD will inherit16 Judah17 as his portion in the holy land and will again choose18 Jerusalem.
Be still19 before the LORD, all mankind, because he has roused himself from his holy dwelling.20"
