23 (A)The Gentiles shall know that the house of Israel went into captivity for their iniquity; because they were unfaithful to Me, therefore (B)I hid My face from them. I (C)gave them into the hand of their enemies, and they all fell by the sword. 24 (D)According to their uncleanness and according to their transgressions I have dealt with them, and hidden My face from them.” ’

25 “Therefore thus says the Lord God: (E)‘Now I will bring back the captives of Jacob, and have mercy on the (F)whole house of Israel; and I will be jealous for My holy name— 26 (G)after they have borne their shame, and all their unfaithfulness in which they were unfaithful to Me, when they (H)dwelt safely in their own land and no one made them afraid. 27 (I)When I have brought them back from the peoples and gathered them out of their enemies’ lands, and I (J)am hallowed in them in the sight of many nations, 28 (K)then they shall know that I am the Lord their God, who sent them into captivity among the nations, but also brought them back to their land, and left none of them [a]captive any longer. 29 (L)And I will not hide My face from them anymore; for I shall have (M)poured out My Spirit on the house of Israel,’ says the Lord God.”
