English Standard Version
19 (A)I scattered them among the nations, and they were dispersed through the countries. (B)In accordance with their ways and their deeds I judged them. 20 But when they came to the nations, wherever they came, (C)they profaned my holy name, in that people said of them, ‘These are the people of the Lord, and yet they had to go out of his land.’ 21 But I had concern (D)for my holy name, which the house of Israel had profaned among the nations to which they came.
I Will Put My Spirit Within You
22 “Therefore say to the house of Israel, Thus says the Lord God: (E)It is not for your sake, O house of Israel, that I am about to act, but for the sake of my holy name, (F)which you have profaned among the nations to which you came. 23 (G)And I will vindicate the holiness of my great name, which has been profaned among the nations, and which you have profaned among them. (H)And the nations will know that I am the Lord, declares the Lord God, when through you I vindicate my holiness before their eyes.Read full chapter
