21 then say to them, Thus says the Lord God: Behold, (A)I will take the people of Israel from the nations among which they have gone, and will gather them from all around, and (B)bring them to their own land. 22 And (C)I will make them one nation in the land, on (D)the mountains of Israel. And (E)one king shall be king over them all, and they shall be no longer (F)two nations, and no longer divided into two kingdoms. 23 (G)They shall not (H)defile themselves anymore (I)with their idols and their detestable things, or with any of their transgressions. But (J)I will save them from all the backslidings[a] in which they have sinned, and will cleanse them; and (K)they shall be my people, and I will be their God.

24 “My servant (L)David (M)shall be king over them, and they shall all have (N)one shepherd. (O)They shall walk in my rules and be careful to obey my statutes. 25 (P)They shall dwell in the land that I gave to my servant Jacob, where your fathers lived. They and their children and their children's children shall dwell there (Q)forever, and David my servant shall be their prince (R)forever. 26 (S)I will make a covenant of peace with them. It shall be (T)an everlasting covenant with them. And I will set them in their land[b] and (U)multiply them, and will (V)set my sanctuary in their midst forevermore. 27 (W)My dwelling place shall be with them, (X)and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. 28 Then (Y)the nations will know that (Z)I am the Lord who sanctifies Israel, when (AA)my sanctuary is in their midst forevermore.”
