"But also on that Judgment Day I will restore David's house that has fallen to pieces. I'll repair the holes in the roof, replace the broken windows, fix it up like new. David's people will be strong again
and seize what's left of enemy Edom, plus everyone else under my sovereign judgment." God's Decree. He will do this.
"Yes indeed, it won't be long now." God's Decree.
I'll make everything right again for my people Israel: "They'll rebuild their ruined cities. They'll plant vineyards and drink good wine. They'll work their gardens and eat fresh vegetables.
And I'll plant them, plant them on their own land. They'll never again be uprooted from the land I've given them." God, your God, says so.
