    I will repair its broken walls
    and restore its ruins(C)
    and will rebuild it as it used to be,(D)

    and the planter by the one treading(K) grapes.
New wine(L) will drip from the mountains
    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)

    never again to be uprooted(U)
    from the land I have given them,”(V)
