25 From you comes the theme of my praise in the great assembly;(A)
    before those who fear you[a] I will fulfill my vows.(B)
26 The poor will eat(C) and be satisfied;
    those who seek the Lord will praise him—(D)
    may your hearts live forever!

27 All the ends of the earth(E)
    will remember and turn to the Lord,
and all the families of the nations
    will bow down before him,(F)
28 for dominion belongs to the Lord(G)
    and he rules over the nations.

29 All the rich(H) of the earth will feast and worship;(I)
    all who go down to the dust(J) will kneel before him—
    those who cannot keep themselves alive.(K)
30 Posterity(L) will serve him;
    future generations(M) will be told about the Lord.
31 They will proclaim his righteousness,(N)
    declaring to a people yet unborn:(O)
    He has done it!(P)

  1. Psalm 22:25 Hebrew him

“Are not you Israelites
    the same to me as the Cushites[a]?”(A)
declares the Lord.
“Did I not bring Israel up from Egypt,
    the Philistines(B) from Caphtor[b](C)
    and the Arameans from Kir?(D)

“Surely the eyes of the Sovereign Lord
    are on the sinful kingdom.
I will destroy(E) it
    from the face of the earth.
Yet I will not totally destroy
    the descendants of Jacob,”
declares the Lord.(F)
“For I will give the command,
    and I will shake the people of Israel
    among all the nations
as grain(G) is shaken in a sieve,(H)
    and not a pebble will reach the ground.(I)
10 All the sinners among my people
    will die by the sword,(J)
all those who say,
    ‘Disaster will not overtake or meet us.’(K)

Israel’s Restoration

11 “In that day

“I will restore David’s(L) fallen shelter(M)
    I will repair its broken walls
    and restore its ruins(N)
    and will rebuild it as it used to be,(O)
12 so that they may possess the remnant of Edom(P)
    and all the nations that bear my name,[c](Q)
declares the Lord, who will do these things.(R)

13 “The days are coming,”(S) declares the Lord,

“when the reaper(T) will be overtaken by the plowman(U)
    and the planter by the one treading(V) grapes.
New wine(W) will drip from the mountains
    and flow from all the hills,(X)
14     and I will bring(Y) my people Israel back from exile.[d](Z)

“They will rebuild the ruined cities(AA) and live in them.
    They will plant vineyards(AB) and drink their wine;
    they will make gardens and eat their fruit.(AC)
15 I will plant(AD) Israel in their own land,(AE)
    never again to be uprooted(AF)
    from the land I have given them,”(AG)

says the Lord your God.(AH)

The Parable of the Mustard Seed(A)

30 Again he said, “What shall we say the kingdom of God is like,(B) or what parable shall we use to describe it? 31 It is like a mustard seed, which is the smallest of all seeds on earth. 32 Yet when planted, it grows and becomes the largest of all garden plants, with such big branches that the birds can perch in its shade.”
