But as for you, mountains of Israel, you will [a](A)grow your branches and bear fruit for My people Israel; for they are about to come. For, behold, I am for you, and I will (B)turn to you, and you will be (C)cultivated and sown. 10 And I will multiply people on you, (D)all the house of Israel, all of it; and the (E)cities will be inhabited and the ruins will be rebuilt. 11 I will multiply on you people and animals, and they will increase and be fruitful; and I will populate you as you were (F)previously, and treat you (G)better than at the beginning. Then you will know that I am the Lord. 12 Yes, I will have (H)people—My people Israel—walk on you and possess you, so that you will become their (I)inheritance and never again (J)bereave them of children.’

13 “The Lord God says this: ‘Since they say to you, “You are a (K)devourer of people and have bereaved your nation of children,” 14 for that reason you will no longer devour people and no longer bereave your nation of children,’ declares the Lord God. 15 I will not let you hear (L)insults from the nations anymore, nor will you suffer (M)disgrace from the peoples any longer, nor will you make your nation (N)stumble any longer,” declares the Lord God.’”
