I said to the city, 'Surely you will fear me and accept correction!'19 Then her dwelling would not be cut off, nor all my punishments come upon her. But they were still eager to act corruptly20 in all they did.
Therefore wait21 for me," declares the LORD, "for the day I will stand up to testify.a I have decided to assemble22 the nations,23 to gather the kingdoms and to pour out my wrath24 on them-- all my fierce anger.25 The whole world will be consumed26 by the fire of my jealous anger.
On that day you will not be put to shame32 for all the wrongs you have done to me,33 because I will remove from this city those who rejoice in their pride.34 Never again will you be haughty on my holy hill.35
Or ""I will gather you who mourn for the appointed feasts; / your reproach is a burden to you"
At that time I will deal with all who oppressed55 you; I will rescue the lame and gather those who have been scattered.56 I will give them praise57 and honor in every land where they were put to shame.
At that time I will gather you; at that time I will bring58 you home. I will give you honor59 and praise60 among all the peoples of the earth when I restore your fortunesd61 before your very eyes," says the LORD.
