'4Call to Me and I will answer you, and I will tell you 5great and mightythings, 6which you do not know.'
"For thussays the LORDGod of Israelconcerning the 7houses of thiscity, and concerning the houses of the kings of Judah which are brokendown to make a defense against the 8siegeramps and against the sword,
'While they are coming to 9fight with the Chaldeans and to fill them with the corpses of menwhom I have slain in My anger and in My wrath, and I have 10hidden My face from thiscitybecause of all their wickedness:
6'Behold, I will bring to it 11health and healing, and I will heal them; and I will reveal to them an 12abundance of peace and truth.
'I will 13restore the cfortunes of Judah and the fortunes of Israel and will 14rebuild them as they were at first.
