  1. 29:14 Or will end your captivity

10 As for you, my servant Jacob,(A)
do not be afraid—
this is the Lord’s declaration—
and do not be discouraged, Israel,
for without fail I will save you out of a distant place,
your descendants, from the land of their captivity!
Jacob will return and have calm and quiet
with no one to frighten him.(B)

Watch! I am going to bring them from the northern land.
I will gather them from remote regions of the earth(A)
the blind and the lame will be with them,(B)
along with those who are pregnant and those about to give birth.
They will return here as a great assembly!(C)
They will come weeping,
but I will bring them back with consolation.[a](D)
I will lead them to wadis filled with water,
by a smooth way where they will not stumble,(E)
for I am Israel’s Father,
and Ephraim is my firstborn.(F)
10 Nations, hear the word of the Lord,
and tell it among the far off coasts and islands!(G)
Say, “The one who scattered Israel will gather him.(H)
He will watch over him as a shepherd guards his flock,
11 for the Lord has ransomed Jacob
and redeemed him from the power of one stronger than he.”(I)
12 They will come and shout for joy on the heights of Zion;(J)
they will be radiant with joy(K)
because of the Lord’s goodness,
because of the grain, the new wine, the fresh oil,(L)
and because of the young of the flocks and herds.
Their life will be like an irrigated garden,
and they will no longer grow weak from hunger.
13 Then the young women will rejoice with dancing,
while young and old men rejoice together.
I will turn their mourning into joy,(M)
give them consolation,
and bring happiness out of grief.
14 I will refresh the priests with an abundance,[b](N)
and my people will be satisfied with my goodness.
This is the Lord’s declaration.
