21 And say to them, ‘This is what the Lord God says: “Behold, I am going to (A)take the sons of Israel from among the nations where they have gone, and I will gather them from every side and bring them into their own land; 22 and I will make them (B)one nation in the land, on the mountains of Israel; and (C)one king will be king for all of them; and they will no longer be two nations, and no longer be divided into two kingdoms. 23 They will (D)no longer defile themselves with their idols, or with their detestable things, or with any of their offenses; but (E)I will rescue them from all their [a]dwelling places in which they have sinned, and will cleanse them. And they will be My people, and I will be their God.

The Davidic Kingdom

24 “And My servant (F)David will be king over them, and they will all have (G)one shepherd; and they will walk in My ordinances, and keep My statutes and [b]follow them. 25 And they will live on the land that I gave to My servant Jacob, in which your fathers lived; and they will live on it, they, and their sons and their sons’ sons, forever; and My servant (H)David will be their leader forever. 26 And I will make a (I)covenant of peace with them; it will be an (J)everlasting covenant with them. And I will [c]place them and (K)multiply them, and set My (L)sanctuary in their midst forever. 27 My (M)dwelling place also will be among them; and (N)I will be their God, and they will be My people. 28 And the nations will know that I am the Lord (O)who sanctifies Israel, when My sanctuary is in their midst forever.”’”
