10 You water its furrows abundantly, You [a]settle its ridges, You soften it with showers, You bless its growth. 11 You have crowned the year [b]with Your [c]bounty, And Your [d]paths drip with fatness. 12 The pastures of the wilderness drip, And the hills gird themselves with rejoicing. 13 The meadows are clothed with flocks And the valleys are covered with grain; They shout for joy, yes, they sing.
Ezekiel 34:26-31New American Standard Bible (NASB)
26 I will make them and the places around My hill a blessing. And I will cause showers to come down in their season; they will be showers of blessing.27 Also the tree of the field will yield its fruit and the earth will yield its increase, and they will be secure on their land. Then they will know that I am the Lord, when I have broken the bars of their yoke and have delivered them from the hand of those who enslaved them.28 They will no longer be a prey to the nations, and the beasts of the earth will not devour them; but they will live securely, and no one will make them afraid.29 I will establish for them a renowned planting place, and they will not again be [a]victims of famine in the land, and they will not endure the insults of the nations anymore.30 Then they will know that I, the Lord their God, am with them, and that they, the house of Israel, are My people,” declares the Lord God.31 “As for you, My sheep, the sheep of My pasture, you are men, and I am your God,” declares the Lord God.
23 So rejoice, O sons of Zion, And be glad in the Lord your God; For He has given you [a]the early rain for your vindication. And He has poured down for you the rain, The [b]early and [c]latter rain [d]as before.
Joel 2:23I.e. autumn; or possibly the teacher for righteousness
