“I will restore David’s(A) fallen shelter(B)
    I will repair its broken walls
    and restore its ruins(C)
    and will rebuild it as it used to be,(D)

    and flow from all the hills,(M)
14     and I will bring(N) my people Israel back from exile.[b](O)

“They will rebuild the ruined cities(P) and live in them.
    They will plant vineyards(Q) and drink their wine;
    they will make gardens and eat their fruit.(R)
15 I will plant(S) Israel in their own land,(T)
    never again to be uprooted(U)
    from the land I have given them,”(V)

says the Lord your God.(W)
