Modern English Version
26 And I shall deliver them into the hand of those who seek their lives and into the hand of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon and into the hand of his servants. But afterwards it will be inhabited, as in the days of old, says the Lord.
God Will Save Israel
27 But do not fear, O My servant Jacob,
and do not be dismayed, O Israel.
For I will save you from afar off,
and your seed from the land of their captivity;
and Jacob shall return and be in rest and at ease,
and no one shall make him afraid.
28 Do not fear, O Jacob My servant,
says the Lord, for I am with you;
for I will make a full end of all the nations
where I have driven you.
However, I will not make a full end of you,
but correct you in measure,
and I will not leave you wholly unpunished.
