This is what the Lord who ·set free [redeemed; rescued] Abraham says to the ·family [L house] of Jacob: “Now ·the people of Jacob [L Jacob] will not be ashamed or ·disgraced [L their faces turn pale] any longer.
And finally this, God’s Message for the family of Jacob, the same God who redeemed Abraham: “No longer will Jacob hang his head in shame, no longer grow gaunt and pale with waiting. For he’s going to see his children, my personal gift to him—lots of children. And these children will honor me by living holy lives. In holy worship they’ll honor the Holy One of Jacob and stand in holy awe of the God of Israel. Those who got off-track will get back on-track, and complainers and whiners learn gratitude.”
