From them will come songs1 of thanksgiving2 and the sound of rejoicing.3 I will add to their numbers,4 and they will not be decreased; I will bring them honor,5 and they will not be disdained.
Their children6 will be as in days of old, and their community will be established7 before me; I will punish8 all who oppress them.
Their leader9 will be one of their own; their ruler will arise from among them.10 I will bring him near11 and he will come close to me, for who is he who will devote himself to be close to me?' declares the LORD.
" 'So you will be my people,12 and I will be your God.13' "
See, the storm14 of the LORD will burst out in wrath, a driving wind swirling down on the heads of the wicked.
The fierce anger15 of the LORD will not turn back16 until he fully accomplishes the purposes of his heart. In days to come you will understand17 this.
