3 “My anger burns against the shepherds, and I will punish the leaders; for the LORD Almighty will care for his flock, the people of Judah, and make them like a proud horse in battle.
1 Ask the LORD for rain in the springtime; it is the LORD who sends the thunderstorms. He gives showers of rain to all people, and plants of the field to everyone.
9 Though I scatter them among the peoples, yet in distant lands they will remember me. They and their children will survive, and they will return.
12 I will strengthen them in the LORDand in his name they will live securely,” declares the LORD.
