In that day the Lord will bring back a remnant of his people for the second time, returning them to the land of Israel from Assyria, Lower Egypt, Upper Egypt, Ethiopia, a Elam, Babylonia, b Hamath, and all the distant coastlands.
He will raise a flag among the nations for Israel to rally around. He will gather the scattered people of Judah from the ends of the earth.
Then at last the jealousy between Israel c and Judah will end. They will not fight against each other anymore.
