36 “Son of man, prophesy to the mountains of Israel and say, ‘Mountains of Israel, hear the word of the Lord.2 This is what the Sovereign Lord says: The enemy said of you, “Aha! The ancient heights have become our possession.”’
8 “‘But you, mountains of Israel, will produce branches and fruit for my people Israel, for they will soon come home.9 I am concerned for you and will look on you with favor; you will be plowed and sown,10 and I will cause many people to live on you—yes, all of Israel. The towns will be inhabited and the ruins rebuilt.
33 “‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: On the day I cleanse you from all your sins, I will resettle your towns, and the ruins will be rebuilt.34 The desolate land will be cultivated instead of lying desolate in the sight of all who pass through it.35 They will say, “This land that was laid waste has become like the garden of Eden; the cities that were lying in ruins, desolate and destroyed, are now fortified and inhabited.”36 Then the nations around you that remain will know that I the Lord have rebuilt what was destroyed and have replanted what was desolate. I the Lord have spoken, and I will do it.’
