Again the wordH1697 of the LORDH3068 of hostsH6635 cameH1961 to me, saying,H559
ThusH3541 saidH559 the LORDH3068 of hosts;H6635 I was jealousH7065 for ZionH6726 with greatH1419 jealousy,H7068 and I was jealousH7065 for her with greatH1419 fury.H2534
ThusH3541 saidH559 the LORD;H3068 I am returnedH7725 to Zion,H6726 and will dwellH7931 in the middleH8432 of Jerusalem:H3389 and JerusalemH3389 shall be calledH7121 a cityH5892 of truth;H571 and the mountainH2022 of the LORDH3068 of hostsH6635 the holyH6944 mountain.H2022
ThusH3541 saidH559 the LORDH3068 of hosts;H6635 There shall yetH5750 oldH2205 men and oldH2205 women dwellH3427 in the streetsH7339 of Jerusalem,H3389 and every manH376 with his staffH4938 in his handH3027 for veryH7230 age.H3117
And the streetsH7339 of the cityH5892 shall be fullH4390 of boysH3206 and girlsH3207 playingH7832 in the streetsH7339 thereof.
ThusH3541 saidH559 the LORDH3068 of hosts;H6635 IfH3588 it be marvelousH6381 in the eyesH5869 of the remnantH7611 of thisH2088 peopleH5971 in theseH1992 days,H3117 should it alsoH1571 be marvelousH6381 in my eyes?H5869 saidH5002 the LORDH3068 of hosts.H6635
ThusH3541 saidH559 the LORDH3068 of hosts;H6635 Behold,H2005 I will saveH3467 my peopleH5971 from the eastH4217 country,H776 and from the westH3996 H8121 country;H776
And I will bringH935 them, and they shall dwellH7931 in the middleH8432 of Jerusalem:H3389 and they shall be my people,H5971 and I will be their God,H430 in truthH571 and in righteousness.H6666
ThusH3541 saidH559 the LORDH3068 of hosts;H6635 Let your handsH3027 be strong,H2388 you that hearH8085 in theseH428 daysH3117 theseH428 wordsH1697 by the mouthH6310 of the prophets,H5030 whichH834 were in the dayH3117 that the foundationH3248 of the houseH1004 of the LORDH3068 of hostsH6635 was laid,H7760 that the templeH1964 might be built.H1129
For beforeH6440 theseH1992 daysH3117 there was noH3808 hireH7939 for man,H120 norH369 any hireH7939 for beast;H929 neitherH369 was there any peaceH7965 to him that wentH3318 out or cameH935 in becauseH4480 of the affliction:H6862 for I setH7971 allH3605 menH120 every oneH376 against his neighbor.H7453
But nowH6258 I will not be to the residueH7611 of thisH2088 peopleH5971 as in the formerH7223 days,H3117 saidH5002 the LORDH3068 of hosts.H6635
For the seedH2233 shall be prosperous;H7965 the vineH1612 shall giveH5414 her fruit,H6529 and the groundH776 shall giveH5414 her increase,H2981 and the heavensH8064 shall giveH5414 their dew;H2919 and I will cause the remnantH7611 of thisH2088 peopleH5971 to possessH5157 allH3605 theseH428 things.
And it shall comeH1961 to pass, that as you were a curseH7045 among the heathen,H1471 O houseH1004 of Judah,H3063 and houseH1004 of Israel;H3478 soH3651 will I saveH3467 you, and you shall be a blessing:H1293 fearH3372 not, but let your handsH3027 be strong.H2388
For thusH3541 saidH559 the LORDH3068 of hosts;H6635 As I thoughtH2161 to punishH7489 you, when your fathersH1 provoked me to wrath,H7107 saidH559 the LORDH3068 of hosts,H6635 and I repentedH5162 not:
SoH3651 againH7725 have I thoughtH2161 in theseH428 daysH3117 to do wellH3190 to JerusalemH3389 and to the houseH1004 of Judah:H3063 fearH3372 you not.
TheseH428 are the things that you shall do;H6213 SpeakH1696 you every manH376 the truthH571 to his neighbor;H7453 executeH8199 the judgmentH4941 of truthH571 and peaceH7965 in your gates:H8179
And let noneH408 of you imagine evilH7451 in your heartsH3820 against his neighbor;H7453 and loveH157 noH3808 falseH8267 oath:H7621 for allH3605 theseH428 are things that I hate,H8130 saidH5002 the LORD.H3068
And the wordH1697 of the LORDH3068 of hostsH6635 cameH1961 to me, saying,H559
ThusH3541 saidH559 the LORDH3068 of hosts;H6635 The fastH6685 of the fourthH7243 month, and the fastH6685 of the fifth,H2549 and the fastH6685 of the seventh,H7637 and the fastH6685 of the tenth,H6224 shall be to the houseH1004 of JudahH3063 joyH8342 and gladness,H8057 and cheerfulH2896 feasts;H4150 therefore loveH157 the truthH571 and peace.H7965
ThusH3541 saidH559 the LORDH3068 of hosts;H6635 It shall yetH5750 comeH935 to pass, that there shall come people,H5971 and the inhabitantsH3427 of manyH7227 cities:H5892
And the inhabitantsH3427 of oneH259 city shall goH1980 to another,H259 saying,H559 Let us goH3212 speedilyH1980 to prayH2470 beforeH854 H6440 the LORD,H3068 and to seekH1245 the LORDH3068 of hosts:H6635 I will goH3212 also.H1571
Yes, manyH7227 peopleH5971 and strongH6099 nationsH1471 shall comeH935 to seekH1245 the LORDH3068 of hostsH6635 in Jerusalem,H3389 and to prayH2470 beforeH854 H6440 the LORD.H3068
ThusH3541 saidH559 the LORDH3068 of hosts;H6635 In thoseH1992 daysH3117 it shall come to pass, that tenH6235 menH582 shall takeH2388 holdH2388 out of allH3605 languagesH3956 of the nations,H1471 even shall takeH2388 holdH2388 of the skirtH3671 of him that is a Jew,H3064 saying,H559 We will goH3212 with you: for we have heardH8085 that GodH430 is with you.
