'For behold, the stone that I have setbeforeJoshua; on onestone are 16seveneyes. Behold, I will engrave an inscription on it,' declares the LORD of hosts, 'and I will 17remove the iniquity of that land in oneday.
'In that day,' declares the LORD of hosts, 'everyone of you will invite his neighbor to sit under his 18vine and under his figtree.' "
