The Nation’s Return to the Land

14 {Therefore}a look, days [are] coming,' {declares}b Yahweh, 'and it will no longer be said, "{As Yahweh lives},c who led up the {Israelites}d from the land of Egypt," 15 {but only}e "{As Yahweh lives},f who led up the {Israelites}g from [the] land of [the] north, and from all the lands where he had driven them," for I will bring them back to their ground that I gave to their ancestors.h 16 Look, I [am] sending for many fishermen,' {declares}i Yahweh, 'and they will fish them out, and {afterward}j I will send for many hunters, and they will hunt them from every mountain, and from every hill, and from the clefts of the cliffs. 17 For my eyes [are] on all their ways, they are not hidden {from before me},k and their iniquity is not concealed from before my eyes. 18 And {I will first doubly repay}l their iniquity and their sin because of their profaning my land with the dead bodiesm of their abhorrences, and [with] their abominations they have filled up my inheritance.'" 19 [O] Yahweh, my strength, and my stronghold, and my refuge in [the] day of distress, to you [the] nations will come from the ends of [the] earth, and they will say, "Our ancestorsn have inherited only lies,o vanity, and there is no profit in them. 20 Can a human make for himself gods? Yet they [are] not gods!" 21 "{Therefore}p look, I [am] about to let them know, this time I am going to let them know my {power}q and my might, and they will know that my name [is] Yahweh."
