12 “The seed will grow well, the vine will yield its fruit,(B) the ground will produce its crops,(C) and the heavens will drop their dew.(D) I will give all these things as an inheritance(E) to the remnant of this people.(F) 13 Just as you, Judah and Israel, have been a curse[a](G) among the nations, so I will save(H) you, and you will be a blessing.[b](I) Do not be afraid,(J) but let your hands be strong.(K)
