As a mother comforts her child, so I will comfort you; in Jerusalem you will be comforted.
When you see this, your heart will rejoice; your entire being will flourish like grass. The LORD's power will be known among his servants, but his fury among his enemies.
The LORD will come with fire, God's chariots like a windstorm, to repay in hot anger, to rebuke with fiery flames.
With fire and with sword the LORD will judge all humanity; many will be slain by the LORD.
Those who became holy and purify themselves, following their leader into the gardens,a who eat pork, detestable animals, and mice, will meet their end together, says the LORD.
Because of their actions and thoughts, I'm coming to gather all nations and cultures. They will come to see my glory.
I will put a sign on them, by sending out some of the survivors to the nations, to Tarshish, Libya, and Lydia, and to the archers of Cilicia and Greece—distant coastlands that haven't heard of my fame or seen my glory. They will declare my glory among the nations.
They will bring your family members from all nations as an offering to the LORD—on horses, in chariots, in wagons, on mules, and on camels—to my holy mountain Jerusalem, says the LORD, like Israelites bringing an offering in purified containers to the LORD's house.
I will select some of them as priests and Levites, says the LORD.
As the new heavens and the new earth that I'm making will endure before me, says the LORD, so your descendants and your name will endure.
From month to month and from Sabbath to Sabbath, all humanity will come to worship me, says the LORD.
