“Thus says the Lord:

(A)‘I will return to Zion,
And (B)dwell in the midst of Jerusalem.
Jerusalem (C)shall be called the City of Truth,
(D)The Mountain of the Lord of hosts,
(E)The Holy Mountain.’

“Thus says the Lord of hosts:

(F)‘Old men and old women shall again sit
In the streets of Jerusalem,
Each one with his staff in his hand
Because of [a]great age.
The streets of the city
Shall be (G)full of boys and girls
Playing in its streets.’

“Thus says the Lord of hosts:

‘If it is [b]marvelous in the eyes of the remnant of this people in these days,
(H)Will it also be marvelous in My eyes?’
Says the Lord of hosts.

“Thus says the Lord of hosts:

‘Behold, (I)I will save My people from the land of the [c]east
And from the land of the [d]west;
I will (J)bring them back,
And they shall dwell in the midst of Jerusalem.
(K)They shall be My people
And I will be their God,
(L)In truth and righteousness.’
