They will come and shout for joy7 on the heights8 of Zion; they will rejoice in the bounty9 of the LORD-- the grain, the new wine and the oil,10 the young of the flocks11 and herds. They will be like a well-watered garden,12 and they will sorrow13 no more.
Is not Ephraim my dear son, the child35 in whom I delight? Though I often speak against him, I still remember36 him. Therefore my heart yearns for him; I have great compassion37 for him," declares the LORD.
