Restoration of Israel

14 "Therefore, behold, I will allure her, 1Bring her into the wilderness And speak akindly to her. 15 "Then I will give her her 2vineyards from there, And 3the valley of Achor as a door of hope. And she will b4sing there as in the days of her youth, As in the 5day when she came up from the land of Egypt. 16 "It will come about in that day," declares the LORD, "That you will call Me c6Ishi And will no longer call Me dBaali. 17 "For 7I will remove the names of the Baals from her mouth, So that they will be ementioned by their names no more. 18 "In that day I will also make a covenant for them With the 8beasts of the field, The birds of the sky And the creeping things of the ground. And I will f9abolish the bow, the sword and war from the land, And will make them 10lie down in safety. 19 "I will 11betroth you to Me forever; Yes, I will betroth you to Me in 12righteousness and in justice, In lovingkindness and in compassion, 20 And I will betroth you to Me in faithfulness. Then you will 13know the LORD. 21 "It will come about in that day that 14I will respond," declares the LORD. "I will respond to the heavens, and they will respond to the earth, 22 And the 15earth will respond to the grain, to the new wine and to the oil, And they will respond to gJezreel. 23 "I will 16sow her for Myself in the land. 17I will also have compassion on hher who had not obtained compassion, And 18I will say to ithose who were 19not My people, 'You are My people!' And jthey will say, 'You are my God!' "
