New International Version
19 From them will come songs(A) of thanksgiving(B)
and the sound of rejoicing.(C)
I will add to their numbers,(D)
and they will not be decreased;
I will bring them honor,(E)
and they will not be disdained.
20 Their children(F) will be as in days of old,
and their community will be established(G) before me;
I will punish(H) all who oppress them.
21 Their leader(I) will be one of their own;
their ruler will arise from among them.(J)
I will bring him near(K) and he will come close to me—
for who is he who will devote himself
to be close to me?’
declares the Lord.
