    Like a devoted gardener, I will pour sweet water on parched land,
        streams on hard-packed ground;
    I will pour My spirit on your children and grandchildren—
        and let My blessing flow to your descendants.
    And they will sprout among the grasses, grow vibrant and tall
        like the willow trees lining a riverbank.
    One will call out: “I belong to the Eternal.”
        Another will say, “Jacob is my people; Israel my honored name.”
    Yet others will write “Property of the Eternal” on their hands.

For I will pour water(A) on the thirsty land,
    and streams on the dry ground;(B)
I will pour out my Spirit(C) on your offspring,
    and my blessing(D) on your descendants.(E)
They will spring up like grass(F) in a meadow,
    like poplar trees(G) by flowing streams.(H)
Some will say, ‘I belong(I) to the Lord’;
    others will call themselves by the name of Jacob;
still others will write on their hand,(J) ‘The Lord’s,’(K)
    and will take the name Israel.
