God Will Restore Them

14 (A)Therefore behold, days are coming,” declares the Lord, “when it will no longer be said, ‘As the Lord lives, who (B)brought up the sons of Israel out of the land of Egypt,’ 15 but, ‘As the Lord lives, who brought up the sons of Israel from the (C)land of the north and from all the lands where He had banished them.’ For I will restore them to their own land which I gave to their fathers.

16 “Behold, I am going to send for many (D)fishermen,” declares the Lord, “and they will fish for them; and afterward I will send for many hunters, and they will (E)hunt them (F)from every mountain and every hill and from the clefts of the rocks.

“Behold, the (A)days are coming,” declares the Lord,
“When I will raise up for David a righteous [a](B)Branch;
And He will (C)reign as king and [b]act wisely
And (D)do justice and righteousness in the land.
In His days Judah will be saved,
And (E)Israel will live securely;
And this is His (F)name by which He will be called,
‘The (G)Lord Our Righteousness.’

(H)Therefore behold, the days are coming,” declares the Lord, “when they will no longer say, ‘As the Lord lives, who brought the sons of Israel up from the land of Egypt,’ (I)but, ‘As the Lord lives, who (J)brought up and led the descendants of the household of Israel back from the north land and from all the countries where I had driven them.’ Then they will live on their own soil.”
