32For behold, days are coming, declares the LORD, 3when I will restore 4the fortunes of my people, 5Israel and Judah, says the LORD, 6and I will bring them back to the land that I gave to their fathers, and they shall take possession of it."
"And it shall come to pass in that day, declares the LORD of hosts, that I will 13break his 14yoke from off your neck, and I will 15burst your bonds, 16and foreigners shall no more make a servant of him.a
1018"Then fear not, 19O Jacob my servant, declares the LORD, nor be dismayed, O Israel; for behold, 20I will save you from far away, 21and your offspring from the land of their captivity. 22Jacob shall return and have quiet and ease, and none shall make him afraid.
1123For I am with you to save you, declares the LORD; 24I will make a full end of all the nations among whom I scattered you, but of you I will not make a full end. 25I will 26discipline you in just measure, and I will by no means leave you unpunished.
1430All your lovers have forgotten you; they care nothing for you; for I have dealt you the blow of 31an enemy, the punishment 32of a merciless foe, because your guilt is great, 33because your sins are flagrant.
1637Therefore all who devour you shall be devoured, and 38all your foes, every one of them, shall go into captivity; 39those who plunder you shall be plundered, 40and all who prey on you I will make a prey.
"Thus says the LORD: Behold, 46I will restore the fortunes of the tents of Jacob and have compassion on his dwellings; the city shall be rebuilt on 47its mound, and the palace shall stand where it used to be.
2151Their prince shall be one of themselves; 52their ruler shall come out from their midst; 53I will make him draw near, and he shall approach me, 54for who would dare of himself to approach me? declares the LORD.
