21 It will happen in that day, I will respond,” says Yahweh,
    “I will respond to the heavens,
    and they will respond to the earth;
22     and the earth will respond to the grain, and the new wine, and the oil;
    and they will respond to Jezreel.
23 I will sow her to me in the earth;
    and I will have mercy on her who had not obtained mercy;
    and I will tell those who were not my people, ‘You are my people;’
    and they will say, ‘My God!’”

21 “In that day I will respond,”
    declares the Lord
“I will respond to the skies,
    and they will respond to the earth;
22 and the earth will respond to the grain,
    the new wine and the olive oil,
    and they will respond to Jezreel.[a]
23 I will plant her for myself in the land;
    I will show my love to the one I called ‘Not my loved one.[b]
I will say to those called ‘Not my people,[c]’ ‘You are my people’;
    and they will say, ‘You are my God.’”
