I will ·leave some of the children of [produce/bring forth offspring/seed from] Jacob, and some of the people of Judah will ·receive [possess; inherit] my mountain. ·I will choose the people who [My chosen ones] will ·live there [possess/inherit it]; my servants will live there.
God’s Message: “But just as one bad apple doesn’t ruin the whole bushel, there are still plenty of good apples left. So I’ll preserve those in Israel who obey me. I won’t destroy the whole nation. I’ll bring out my true children from Jacob and the heirs of my mountains from Judah. My chosen will inherit the land, my servants will move in. The lush valley of Sharon in the west will be a pasture for flocks, And in the east, the valley of Achor, a place for herds to graze. These will be for the people who bothered to reach out to me, who wanted me in their lives, who actually bothered to look for me.
But I will bring up children from Jacob’s line to inherit this land. To Jacob’s son Judah I will give My mountains. These, My chosen ones, will inherit it; these, My servants, will live there and call it home.
And I shall lead out of Jacob (a) seed, and (out) of Judah a man having in possession mine holy hills; and my chosen men shall inherit it, and my servants shall dwell there. (And I shall bring out of Jacob children, or descendants, and out of Judah those who shall possess my holy hills; and my chosen shall inherit it, and my servants shall live there.)
