As surely as I live, declares the Sovereign LORD, I will rule over you with a mighty hand and an outstretched arm1 and with outpoured wrath.234
I will bring you from the nations3 and gather4 you from the countries where you have been scattered--with a mighty hand5 and an outstretched arm and with outpoured wrath.635
I will bring you into the desert7 of the nations and there, face to face, I will execute judgment8 upon you.
As I judged your fathers in the desert of the land of Egypt, so I will judge you, declares the Sovereign LORD.937
I will take note of you as you pass under my rod,10 and I will bring you into the bond of the covenant.1138
I will purge12 you of those who revolt and rebel against me. Although I will bring them out of the land where they are living, yet they will not enter the land of Israel. Then you will know that I am the LORD.13
