I will give them singleness1 of heart and action, so that they will always fear2 me for their own good and the good of their children after them.
I will make an everlasting covenant3 with them: I will never stop doing good to them, and I will inspire4 them to fear me, so that they will never turn away from me.541
I will rejoice6 in doing them good7 and will assuredly plant8 them in this land with all my heart and soul.942
"This is what the LORD says: As I have brought all this great calamity10 on this people, so I will give them all the prosperity I have promised11 them.
Once more fields will be bought12 in this land of which you say, 'It is a desolate13 waste, without men or animals, for it has been handed over to the Babylonians.'
Fields will be bought for silver, and deeds14 will be signed, sealed and witnessed15 in the territory of Benjamin, in the villages around Jerusalem, in the towns of Judah and in the towns of the hill country, of the western foothills and of the Negev,16 because I will restore17 their fortunes,a declares the LORD."
