17 (A)The Lord your God is in your midst,
    (B)a mighty one who will save;
(C)he will rejoice over you with gladness;
    he will quiet you by his love;
he will exult over you with loud singing.
18 I will gather those of you who mourn (D)for the festival,
    so that you will no longer suffer reproach.[a]
19 Behold, at that time (E)I will deal
    with all your oppressors.
And (F)I will save the lame
    and gather the outcast,
and I will change (G)their shame into (H)praise
    and renown in all the earth.
20 (I)At that time I will bring you in,
    at the time when I gather you together;
for I will make you renowned and praised
    among all the peoples of the earth,
(J)when I restore your fortunes
    before your eyes,” says the Lord.
