1. Genesis 50: 24-25  24And Joseph said to his brothers, “I am about to die, but God will
visit you and bring you up out of this land to the land that he swore to
Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob.” 25Then Joseph made the sons of Israel swear, saying, “God will surely
visit you, and you shall carry up my bones from here.”
Leviticus 26:41-45  41so that I walked
contrary to them and brought them into the land of their enemies—if then their
uncircumcised heart is humbled and they make amends for their iniquity, 42then I will remember my
covenant with Jacob, and I will remember my covenant with Isaac and my covenant
with Abraham, and I will remember the land. 43But the land shall be
abandoned by them and enjoy its Sabbaths while it lies desolate without them,
and they shall make amends for their iniquity, because they spurned my rules
and their soul abhorred my statutes. 44Yet for all that, when
they are in the land of their enemies, I will not spurn them, neither will I
abhor them so as to destroy them utterly and break my covenant with them, for I
am the Lord their God. 45But I will for their
sake remember the covenant with their forefathers, whom I brought out of the
land of Egypt in the sight of the nations, that I might be their God: I am the Lord.”
3.    Numbers 14:7-9  7and said to all the
congregation of the people of Israel, “The land, which we passed through
to spy it out, is an exceedingly good land. 8If the Lord delights in us, he will
bring us into this land and give it to us, a land that flows with milk and
honey. 9Only do not rebel
against the Lord. And do not fear the
people of the land, for they are bread for us. Their protection is removed from
them, and the Lord is with us; do not fear
Deuteronomy 1: 8,10,11,21  8See, I have set the
land before you. Go in and take possession of the land that the Lord swore to your fathers,
to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give to them and to their offspring
after them. 10TheLord your God has multiplied
you, and behold, you are today as numerous as the stars of heaven. 11May the Lord, the God of your
fathers, make you a thousand times as many as you are and bless you, as he has
promised you!  21See, the Lord your God has set the
land before you. Go up, take possession, as the Lord, the God of your
fathers, has told you. Do not fear or be dismayed.’
Deuteronomy 7:6-11  6″For you are a
people holy to the Lord your God. The Lord your God has chosen you
to be a people for his treasured possession, out of all the peoples who are on
the face of the earth. 7It was not because you
were more in number than any other people that the Lord set his love on you and
chose you, for you were the fewest of all peoples, 8but it is because the Lord loves you and is
keeping the oath that he swore to your fathers, that the Lord has brought you out
with a mighty hand and redeemed you from the house of slavery, from the hand of
Pharaoh king of Egypt. 9Know therefore that the Lord your God is God, the
faithful God who keeps covenant and steadfast love with those who love him and
keep his commandments, to a thousand generations, 10and repays to their
face those who hate him, by destroying them. He will not be slack with one who
hates him. He will repay him to his face. 11You shall therefore be
careful to do the commandment and the statutes and the rules that I command you
Deuteronomy 11: 18-25  “You shall therefore lay up these words of mine in your heart and
in your soul, and you shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be
as frontlets between your eyes. 19You shall teach them to
your children, talking of them when you are sitting in your house, and when you
are walking by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. 20You shall write them on
the doorposts of your house and on your gates, 21that your days and the
days of your children may be multiplied in the land that the Lord swore to your fathers
to give them, as long as the heavens are above the earth. 22For if you will be
careful to do all this commandment that I command you to do, loving the Lord your God, walking in all
his ways, and holding fast to him, 23then the Lord will drive out all
these nations before you, and you will dispossess nations greater and mightier
than you. 24Every place on which
the sole of your foot treads shall be yours. Your territory shall be from the
wilderness to the Lebanon and from the River, the river Euphrates, to the
western sea. 25No one shall be able to
stand against you. The Lord your God will lay the
fear of you and the dread of you on all the land that you shall tread, as he
promised you.
7.    Deuteronomy 26: 15-19  15Look
down from your holy habitation, from heaven, and bless your people Israel and
the ground that you have given us, as you swore to our fathers, a land flowing
with milk and honey.’16″This
day the Lord your God
commands you to do these statutes and rules. You shall therefore be careful to
do them with all your heart and with all your soul. 17You have declared today that
the Lord is your God,
and that you will walk in his ways, and keep his statutes and his commandments
and his rules, and will obey his voice. 18And the Lord has declared today that you
are a people for his treasured possession, as he has promised you, and that you
are to keep all his commandments, 19and
that he will set you in praise and in fame and in honor high above all nations
that he has made, and that you shall be a people holy to the Lord your God, as he
8.    Deuteronomy 28:1-14 1″And if you faithfully
obey the voice of the Lord your
God, being careful to do all his commandments that I command you today,
the Lord your God will
set you high above all the nations of the earth. 2And all these blessings shall
come upon you and overtake you, if you obey the voice of the Lord your God. 3Blessed shall you be in the
city, and blessed shall you be in the field. 4Blessed shall be the fruit of
your womb and the fruit of your ground and the fruit of your cattle, the
increase of your herds and the young of your flock. 5Blessed shall be your basket
and your kneading bowl. 6Blessed
shall you be when you come in, and blessed shall you be when you go out.7″The Lord will cause your enemies who
rise against you to be defeated before you. They shall come out against you one
way and flee before you seven ways. 8The Lord will command the blessing on
you in your barns and in all that you undertake. And he will bless you in the
land that the Lord your
God is giving you. 9The Lord will establish you as a people
holy to himself, as he has sworn to you, if you keep the commandments of
the Lord your God and
walk in his ways. 10And
all the peoples of the earth shall see that you are called by the name of
the Lord, and they shall be
afraid of you. 11And
the Lord will make you
abound in prosperity, in the fruit of your womb and in the fruit of your
livestock and in the fruit of your ground, within the land that the Lord swore to your fathers to give
you. 12The Lord will open to you his good
treasury, the heavens, to give the rain to your land in its season and to bless
all the work of your hands. And you shall lend to many nations, but you shall
not borrow. 13And
the Lord will make you
the head and not the tail, and you shall only go up and not down, if you obey
the commandments of the Lord your
God, which I command you today, being careful to do them, 14and if you do not turn aside
from any of the words that I command you today, to the right hand or to the
left, to go after other gods to serve them.
Deuteronomy 30: 1-5  1″And when all
these things come upon you, the blessing and the curse, which I have set before
you, and you call them to mind among all the nations where the Lord your God has driven
you, 2and return to the Lord your God, you and your
children, and obey his voice in all that I command you today, with all your
heart and with all your soul, 3then the Lord your God will restore
your fortunes and have mercy on you, and he will gather you again from all the
peoples where the Lord your God has scattered
you. 4If your outcasts are in
the uttermost parts of heaven, from there the Lord your God will gather
you, and from there he will take you. 5And the Lord your God will bring you
into the land that your fathers possessed, that you may possess it. And he will
make you more prosperous and numerous than your fathers.
10. Deuteronomy 32: 46-47  46he said to them,
“Take to heart all the words by which I am warning you today, that you may
command them to your children, that they may be careful to do all the words of
this law. 47For it is no empty word
for you, but your very life, and by this word you shall live long in the land
that you are going over the Jordan to possess.”
11. Deuteronomy 33:26-29  26 “There
is none like God, O Jeshurun, who rides through the heavens
to your help,through the skies in his majesty. 27 The eternal God is your
dwelling place,and underneath are the everlasting arms. And he thrust out the
enemy before youand said, ‘Destroy.’28 So
Israel lived in safety,      Jacob lived alone,in a land of grain and wine,whose heavens drop down dew. 29 Happy are you, O Israel!
Who is like you,a people saved by the Lord,
the shield of your help, and the sword of your triumph! Your
enemies shall come     fawning to you,and
you shall tread upon their backs.”
12. Ruth 1: 6-7,14b- 6Then she arose with her daughters-in-law to return from the country of
Moab, for she had heard in the fields of Moab that the Lord had visited his people
and given them food. 7So she set out from the
place where she was with her two daughters-in-law, and they went on the way to
return to the land of Judah. 14b And Orpah kissed her
mother-in-law, but Ruth clung to her.15And
she said, “See, your sister-in-law has gone back to her people and to her
gods; return after your sister-in-law.” 16But Ruth said, “Do not
urge me to leave you or to return from following you. For where you go I will
go, and where you lodge I will lodge. Your people shall be my people, and your
God my God. 17Where
you die I will die, and there will I be buried. May the Lord do so to me and more also if
anything but death parts me from you.”
13. 2 Samuel 7:10  10And I will appoint a place for my
people Israel and will plant them, so that they may dwell in their own place
and be disturbed no more. And violent men shall afflict them no more, as
1 Chronicles 16: 20-22,34-36  20 wandering from nation to nation, from one
kingdom to another people, 21 he allowed no one to oppress them; he rebuked
kings on their account, 22 saying, “Touch not my anointed ones, do
my prophets no harm!” 34 Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; for his steadfast love endures
forever! 35Say also:”Save us, O God of our salvation, and
gather and deliver us from among the nations,that we may give thanks to your
holy name and glory in your praise. 36 Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel, from everlasting
to everlasting!” Then all the people said, “Amen!” and praised
the Lord.
1 Chronicles 17: 9 9And I will appoint a place for my
people Israel and will plant them, that they may dwell in their own place and
be disturbed no more. And violent men shall waste them no more, as formerly,
16. 2 Chronicles 30: 9  9For if you return to
the Lord, your brothers and
your children will find compassion with their captors and return to this land. For
the Lord your God is gracious
and merciful and will not turn away his face from you, if you return to
2 Chronicles 36:22-23  22Now in the first year
of Cyrus king of Persia, that the word of the Lord by the mouth of
Jeremiah might be fulfilled, the Lord stirred up the spirit
of Cyrus king of Persia, so that he made a proclamation throughout all his
kingdom and also put it in writing: 23″Thus says Cyrus
king of Persia, ‘The Lord, the God of heaven,
has given me all the kingdoms of the earth, and he has charged me to build him
a house at Jerusalem, which is in Judah. Whoever is among you of all his
people, may the Lord his God be with him. Let him go up.'”
18. Ezra 2, 8 e Nehemiah 7 list of exiles from Bavel who
returned to Israel

19. Nehemiah 1: 8-9  8Remember the word that
you commanded your servant Moses, saying, ‘If you are unfaithful, I will
scatter you among the peoples, 9but if you return to me
and keep my commandments and do them, though your outcasts are in the uttermost
parts of heaven, from there I will gather them and bring them to the place that
I have chosen, to make my name dwell there.’
20. Nehemiah 9:6-8  6 “You are the Lord, you alone. You have
made heaven, the heaven of heavens, with all their host, the earth and all that
is on it, the seas and all that is in them; and you preserve all of them; and
the host of heaven worships you. 7You are the Lord, the God who chose
Abram and brought him out of Ur of the Chaldeans and gave him the name Abraham. 8You found his heart
faithful before you, and made with him the covenant to give to his offspring
the land of the Canaanite, the Hittite, the Amorite, the Perizzite, the
Jebusite, and the Girgashite. And you have kept your promise, for you are
21. Psalm 14: 7  7 Oh, that salvation for Israel would come
out of Zion! When the Lord restores the fortunes of his people, let Jacob rejoice, let Israel be
22. Psalm 53: 6 6 Oh, that salvation for
Israel would come out of Zion! When God restores the fortunes of his people, let
Jacob rejoice, let Israel be glad.
23. Psalm 69:33-36  33 For the Lord hears the needy and does not despise his
own people who are prisoners.34 Let heaven and earth praise him, the
seas and everything that moves in them. 35 For God will save Zion and build up the
cities of Judah, and people shall dwell there and possess it; 36 the offspring of his servants shall
inherit it, and those who love his name shall dwell in it.
24. Psalm 77:14-15  14 14 You are the God who
works wonders; you have made known your might among the peoples.15 You with your arm
redeemed your people,the children of Jacob and Joseph.
25. Psalm 80:1-3,6,7,14-19  1 Give
ear, O Shepherd of Israel, you who lead Joseph like a flock. You who are
enthroned upon the cherubim, shine forth.2 Before
Ephraim and Benjamin and Manasseh, stir up your might and come to save us! 3 Restore us, O God; let
your face shine, that we may be saved! 6 You
make us an object of contention for our neighbors, and our enemies laugh among
themselves. 7 Restore us, O God of
hosts; let your face shine, that we may be saved! 14 Turn again, O God of
hosts! Look down from heaven, and see; have regard for this vine,15 the stock that your right
hand planted, and for the son whom you made strong for yourself.16 They have burned it with
fire; they have cut it down;may they perish at the rebuke of your face!17 But let your hand be on
the man of your right hand, the son of man whom you have made strong for
yourself! 18 Then we shall not turn
back from you; give us life, and we will call upon your name!19 Restore us, O Lord God of hosts!Let your face
shine, that we may be saved!
26. Psalm 85: 1-4  1 Lord, you were favorable to your land; you
restored the fortunes of Jacob. 2 You
forgave the iniquity of your people; you covered all their sin.Selah 3 You withdrew all your
wrath; you turned from your hot anger. 4 Restore
us again, O God of our salvation, and put away your indignation toward us!
27. Psalm 105: 6-11,42-45  6 O
offspring of Abraham, his servant, children of Jacob, his chosen ones! 7 He is the Lord our God; his judgments are in
all the earth. 8 He
remembers his covenant forever, the word that he commanded, for a thousand
generations, 9 the covenant that he
made with Abraham, his sworn promise to Isaac,10 which he confirmed to
Jacob as a statute, to Israel as an everlasting covenant, 11 saying, “To you I
will give the land of Canaan as your portion for an inheritance.” 42 For he remembered his
holy promise, and Abraham, his servant. 43 So
he brought his people out with joy, his chosen ones with singing. 44 And he gave them the
lands of the nations, and they took possession of the fruit of the peoples’
toil, 45 that they might keep his
statutes and observe his laws. Praise the Lord!
28. Psalm 106: 44-48 44 Nevertheless, he looked
upon their distress, when he heard their cry. 45 For their sake he
remembered his covenant, and relented according to the abundance of his
steadfast love. 46 He
caused them to be pitied by all those who held them captive. 47 Save us, O Lord our God, and gather us from
among the nations, that we may give thanks to your holy name and glory in your
praise. 48 Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel, from
everlasting to everlasting! And let all the people say, “Amen!” Praise
the Lord!]
29. Psalm 107:1-7  1 Oh
give thanks to the Lord, for
he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever! 2 Let the redeemed of
the Lord say so, whom he
has redeemed from trouble 3 and
gathered in from the lands, from the east and from the west, from the north and
from the south. 4 Some
wandered in desert wastes, finding no way to a city to dwell in; 5 hungry and thirsty, their
soul fainted within them. 6 Then
they cried to the Lord in
their trouble, and he delivered them from their distress. 7 He led them by a
straight way till they reached a city to dwell in.
30. Psalm 122:2-4  2 Our
feet have been standing within your gates, O Jerusalem! 3 Jerusalem—built as a
city that is bound firmly together, 4 to
which the tribes go up, the tribes of the Lord,
as was decreed for Israel, to give thanks to the name of the Lord.
31. Psalm 126: 1-4 1 When the Lord restored the fortunes of Zion,
we were like those who dream. 2 Then
our mouth was filled with laughter, and our tongue with shouts of joy; then
they said among the nations, “The Lord has
done great things for them.” 3 The Lord has done great things for us; we
are glad. 4 Restore our fortunes,
O Lord, like streams in the
32. Psalm 135:4,12,13  4 For
the Lord has chosen
Jacob for himself, Israel as his own possession. 12 and gave their land as a
heritage, a heritage to his people Israel. 13 Your name, O Lord, endures forever, your renown,
O Lord, throughout all ages.
33. Psalm 137:4-6  4 How
shall we sing the Lord’s song
in a foreign land? 5 If
I forget you, O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget its skill! 6 Let my tongue stick to
the roof of my mouth, if I do not remember you, if I do not set Jerusalem above
my highest joy!
34. Psalm 147: 2-3 2 The Lord builds up Jerusalem; he
gathers the outcasts of Israel.
35. Isaiah 5: 25-29  25 Therefore the anger of the Lord was kindled against his
people, and he stretched out his hand against them and struck them, and the
mountains quaked; and their corpses were as refuse in the midst of the streets.
For all this his anger has not turned away, and his hand is stretched out
still. 26 He will raise a signal
for nations far away, and whistle for them from the ends of the earth; and
behold, quickly, speedily they come! 27 None is weary, none stumbles, none slumbers or sleeps, not a
waistband is loose, not a sandal strap broken; 28 their arrows are sharp, all their bows bent, their
horses’ hoofs seem like flint, and their wheels like the whirlwind. 29 Their roaring is like a lion, like young lions they
roar; they growl and seize their prey; they carry it off, and none can rescue.
36. Isaiah 11: 11-12  11In that day the Lord will extend his hand yet a second time to recover the
remnant that remains of his people, from Assyria, from Egypt, from Pathros,
from Cush, from Elam, from Shinar, from Hamath, and from the coastlands of the
sea. 12 He will raise a signal
for the nations and will assemble the banished of Israel, and gather the
dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.
37. Isaiah 14: 1-3 1For the Lord will
have compassion on Jacob and will again choose Israel, and will set them in
their own land, and sojourners will join them and will attach themselves to the
house of Jacob. 2And the peoples will take them and bring them to their place, and the house
of Israel will possess them in the Lord’s
land as male and female slaves. They will take captive those who were their
captors, and rule over those who oppressed them. 3When the Lord has
given you rest from your pain and turmoil and the hard service with which you
were made to serve,
38. Isaiah 27: 12,13  12In that day from the
river Euphrates to the Brook of Egypt the Lord will thresh out the
grain, and you will be gleaned one by one, O people of Israel. 13And in that day a great
trumpet will be blown, and those who were lost in the land of Assyria and those
who were driven out to the land of Egypt will come and worship the Lord on the holy mountain at
39. Isaiah 35: 10  10 And the ransomed of the Lord shall
return and come to Zion with singing; everlasting joy shall be upon their
heads; they shall obtain gladness and joy, and sorrow and sighing shall flee
40. Isaiah 41: 8-10 But you, Israel, my servant, Jacob, whom I have chosen, the offspring of Abraham, my friend; you whom I took from the ends of the earth, and called from its farthest corners, saying to you, “You are my servant, I have chosen you and not cast you
off”; fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you,I will
uphold you with my righteous right hand.
41. Isaiah 43:3,4-7,8-12,19-21,25  For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior. I give Egypt as your ransom, Cush and Seba in exchange for you. Because you are precious in my eyes, and honored, and I love you, I give men in return for you, peoples in exchange for your life. Fear not,
for I am with you; I will bring your offspring
from the east, and from the west I will
gather you. I will say to the north, Give up, and to the south, Do not withhold; bring my sons from afar and my daughters from the end of the
earth, everyone who is called by my name, whom I created for my glory, whom I formed and made.” Bring out the
people who are blind, yet have eyes, who are deaf, yet have ears!  All the nations gather together, and the peoples assemble.Who among them can declare
this, and show us the former things? Let them bring their witnesses to prove them right, and let them hear and say, It is
true. “You are my witnesses,” declares the Lord, “and my servant whom I have chosen, that you may know and believe me and understand that I am he. Before me no god was formed,nor shall there be any
after me. I, I am the Lord, and besides me there is no savior. I declared
and saved and proclaimed, when there was no strange god among you; and you are my witnesses,” declares the Lord, “and I am God. 19Behold, I will do a new thing;
now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the
wilderness, and rivers in the desert. The beast of the field shall honour me, the dragons and the owls: because I
give waters in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert, to give drink to my
people, my chosen. This people have I formed for myself; they shall shew forth
my praise. But thou hast not called upon
me, O Jacob; but thou hast been weary of me, O Israel. Thou hast not brought me the small cattle of thy
burnt offerings; neither hast thou honoured me with thy sacrifices. I have not
caused thee to serve with an offering, nor wearied thee with incense. Thou hast
bought me no sweet cane with money, neither hast thou filled me with the fat of
thy sacrifices: but thou hast made me to serve with thy sins, thou hast wearied
me with thine iniquities. I, even I, am he that blotteth out thy transgressions
for mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins.
42. Isaiah 44:21-22  Remember these, O Jacob and Israel; for thou art my
servant: I have formed thee; thou art my servant: O Israel, thou shalt not be
forgotten of me. I have blotted out, as a thick
cloud, thy transgressions, and, as a cloud, thy sins: return unto me; for I
have redeemed thee.
43. Isaiah 44: 26  26That confirmeth the word of his
servant, and performeth the counsel of his messengers; that saith to Jerusalem,
Thou shalt be inhabited; and to the cities of Judah, Ye shall be built, and I
will raise up the decayed places thereof:
Isaiah 45: 20a,25  Assemble yourselves and come; draw near together, ye that are escaped of
the nations…25In the Lord shall all the seed of Israel be justified, and shall
Isaiah 46:3-4 Hearken unto me, O house of
Jacob, and all the remnant of the house of Israel, which are borne by me from
the belly, which are carried from the womb: And even to your old age I am he;
and even to hoar hairs will I carry you: I have made, and I will bear; even I
will carry, and will deliver you.
46. Isaiah 48: 20  Go ye forth of Babylon, flee ye from
the Chaldeans, with a voice of singing declare ye, tell this, utter it even to
the end of the earth; say ye, The Lord hath redeemed his servant Jacob.
47. Isaiah 49: 5-6  5And now, saith the Lord that formed me from the womb to be his servant, to
bring Jacob again to him, Though Israel be not gathered, yet shall I be
glorious in the eyes of the Lord,
and my God shall be my strength.  And he said, It is a light thing
that thou shouldest be my servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to
restore the preserved of Israel: I will also give thee for a light to the
Gentiles, that thou mayest be my salvation unto the end of the earth.
48. Isaiah 49: 10-13 They shall not hunger nor
thirst; neither shall the heat nor sun smite them: for he that hath mercy on
them shall lead them, even by the springs of water shall he guide them. And I
will make all my mountains a way, and my highways shall be exalted. Behold, these
shall come from far: and, lo, these from the north and from the west; and these
from the land of Sinim. Sing, O heavens; and be joyful, O earth; and break
forth into singing, O mountains: for the Lord hath
comforted his people, and will have mercy upon his afflicted.
49. Isaiah 49: 14-20 But Zion said, The Lord hath forsaken me, and my Lord
hath forgotten me. Can a woman forget her sucking
child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? yea, they
may forget, yet will I not forget thee. Behold, I have graven thee upon the
palms of my hands; thy walls are continually before me.Thy children shall make
haste; thy destroyers and they that made thee waste shall go forth of thee.Lift
up thine eyes round about, and behold: all these gather themselves together,
and come to thee. As I live, saith the Lord,
thou shalt surely clothe thee with them all, as with an ornament, and bind them
on thee, as a bride doeth. For thy waste and thy desolate places, and the land of thy destruction,
shall even now be too narrow by reason of the inhabitants, and they that
swallowed thee up shall be far away.The children which thou shalt have, after
thou hast lost the other, shall say again in thine ears, The place is too strait
for me: give place to me that I may dwell.
50. Isaiah 49: 22-23  Thus saith the Lord God, Behold, I will lift up mine hand to the Gentiles, and
set up my standard to the people: and they shall bring thy sons in their arms,
and thy daughters shall be carried upon their shoulders. And kings shall be thy
nursing fathers, and their queens thy nursing mothers: they shall bow down to
thee with their face toward the earth, and lick up the dust of thy feet; and
thou shalt know that I am the Lord:
for they shall not be ashamed that wait for me.
51. Isaiah 51:3  For the Lord shall comfort Zion: he will comfort
all her waste places; and he will make her wilderness like Eden, and her desert
like the garden of the Lord; joy and gladness
shall be found therein, thanksgiving, and the voice of melody.
52. Isaiah 51: 10-16 10Art thou not it which hath
dried the sea, the waters of the great deep; that hath made the depths of the
sea a way for the ransomed to pass over? 11Therefore the redeemed of
the Lord shall return,
and come with singing unto Zion; and everlasting joy shall be upon their head:
they shall obtain gladness and joy; and sorrow and mourning shall flee away. 12I, even I, am he that
comforteth you: who art thou, that thou shouldest be afraid of a man that shall
die, and of the son of man which shall be made as grass; 13And forgettest the Lord thy maker, that hath stretched
forth the heavens, and laid the foundations of the earth; and hast feared
continually every day because of the fury of the oppressor, as if he were ready
to destroy? and where is the fury of the oppressor? 14The captive exile hasteneth
that he may be loosed, and that he should not die in the pit, nor that his
bread should fail. 15But I am the Lord thy
God, that divided the sea, whose waves roared: The Lord of hosts is his name. 16And I have put my words in thy
mouth, and I have covered thee in the shadow of mine hand, that I may plant the
heavens, and lay the foundations of the earth, and say unto Zion, Thou art my
53. Isaiah 52: 2-2Shake thyself from the dust;
arise, and sit down, O Jerusalem: loose thyself from the bands of thy neck, O
captive daughter of Zion. 3For thus saith the Lord, Ye have sold yourselves for nought; and ye shall be
redeemed without money.
54. Isaiah 52: 7-9  7How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of
him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good
tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God
reigneth! 8Thy watchmen shall lift up the voice; with the voice together shall they
sing: for they shall see eye to eye, when the Lord shall bring again Zion. 9Break forth into joy, sing
together, ye waste places of Jerusalem: for the Lord hath comforted his people, he hath redeemed
55. Isaiah 52: 10-12  10The Lord hath
made bare his holy arm in the eyes of all the nations; and all the ends of the earth
shall see the salvation of our God. 11Depart ye, depart ye, go ye out from thence, touch
no unclean thing; go ye out of the midst of her; be ye clean, that bear the
vessels of the Lord. 12For ye shall not go out with
haste, nor go by flight: for the Lord will
go before you; and the God of Israel will be your rearward.
56. Isaiah 54: 2-3  2Enlarge the place of thy tent, and let them stretch
forth the curtains of thine habitations: spare not, lengthen thy cords, and
strengthen thy stakes; 3For thou shalt break forth on the right hand and on
the left; and thy seed shall inherit the Gentiles, and make the desolate cities
to be inhabited.
57. Isaiah 54: 6-8  6For the Lord hath
called thee as a woman forsaken and grieved in spirit, and a wife of youth,
when thou wast refused, saith thy God. 7For a small moment have I
forsaken thee; but with great mercies will I gather thee. 8In a little wrath I hid my
face from thee for a moment; but with everlasting kindness will I have mercy on
thee, saith the Lord thy
58. Isaiah 54: 10-13  10For the mountains shall depart, and the hills be
removed; but my kindness shall not depart from thee, neither shall the covenant
of my peace be removed, saith the Lord that
hath mercy on thee. 11O thou afflicted, tossed with tempest, and not comforted, behold, I will
lay thy stones with fair colours, and lay thy foundations with sapphires. 12And I will make thy windows of
agates, and thy gates of carbuncles, and all thy borders of pleasant stones. 13And all thy children shall be
taught of the Lord; and great
shall be the peace of thy children.
59. Isaiah 56: 6-8  6Also the sons of the stranger, that join themselves
to the Lord, to serve him,
and to love the name of the Lord,
to be his servants, every one that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and
taketh hold of my covenant; 7Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and
make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their
sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called an
house of prayer for all people. 8The Lord God which
gathereth the outcasts of Israel saith, Yet will I gather others to him, beside
those that are gathered unto him.
60. Isaiah 58: 11-12,14  11And the Lord shall
guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy
bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water,
whose waters fail not.12And they that shall be of thee shall build the old
waste places: thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generations; and thou
shalt be called, The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in. 14Then shalt thou delight
thyself in the Lord; and I will cause thee
to ride upon the high places of the earth, and feed thee with the heritage of
Jacob thy father: for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it.
61. Isaiah 60: 4-5  4Lift up thine eyes round about, and see: all they
gather themselves together, they come to thee: thy sons shall come from far,
and thy daughters shall be nursed at thy side. 5Then thou shalt see, and flow
together, and thine heart shall fear, and be enlarged; because the abundance of
the sea shall be converted unto thee, the forces of the Gentiles shall come
unto thee.
62. Isaiah 60: 8-11  8Who are these that fly as a cloud, and as the doves
to their windows? 9Surely the isles shall wait for me, and the ships of Tarshish first, to
bring thy sons from far, their silver and their gold with them, unto the name
of the Lord thy God, and
to the Holy One of Israel, because he hath glorified thee. 10And the sons of strangers
shall build up thy walls, and their kings shall minister unto thee: for in my
wrath I smote thee, but in my favour have I had mercy on thee. 11Therefore thy gates shall be
open continually; they shall not be shut day nor night; that men may bring unto
thee the forces of the Gentiles, and that their kings may be brought.
63. Isaiah 60: 13-21 13The glory of Lebanon shall
come unto thee, the fir tree, the pine tree, and the box together, to beautify
the place of my sanctuary; and I will make the place of my feet glorious. 14The sons also of them that
afflicted thee shall come bending unto thee; and all they that despised thee
shall bow themselves down at the soles of thy feet; and they shall call thee,
The city of the Lord, The
Zion of the Holy One of Israel. 15Whereas thou hast been forsaken and hated, so that
no man went through thee, I will make thee an eternal excellency, a joy of many
generations. 16Thou shalt also suck the milk of the Gentiles, and shalt suck the breast of
kings: and thou shalt know that I the Lord am
thy Saviour and thy Redeemer, the mighty One of Jacob. 17For brass I will bring gold,
and for iron I will bring silver, and for wood brass, and for stones iron: I
will also make thy officers peace, and thine exactors righteousness. 18Violence shall no more be
heard in thy land, wasting nor destruction within thy borders; but thou shalt
call thy walls Salvation, and thy gates Praise. 19The sun shall be no more thy
light by day; neither for brightness shall the moon give light unto thee: but
the Lord shall be unto
thee an everlasting light, and thy God thy glory. 20Thy sun shall no more go down;
neither shall thy moon withdraw itself: for the Lord shall be thine everlasting light, and the days of
thy mourning shall be ended. 21Thy people also shall be all righteous: they shall
inherit the land for ever, the branch of my planting, the work of my hands,
that I may be glorified.
64. Isaiah 61: 3-7  3To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give
unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise
for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness,
the planting of the Lord,
that he might be glorified. 4And they shall build the old wastes, they shall
raise up the former desolations, and they shall repair the waste cities, the
desolations of many generations. 5And strangers shall stand and feed your flocks, and
the sons of the alien shall be your plowmen and your vinedressers. 6But ye shall be named the
Priests of the Lord: men
shall call you the Ministers of our God: ye shall eat the riches of the
Gentiles, and in their glory shall ye boast yourselves. 7For your shame ye shall have
double; and for confusion they shall rejoice in their portion: therefore in
their land they shall possess the double: everlasting joy shall be unto them.
65. Isaiah 62: 1-4  1For Zion’s sake will I not
hold my peace, and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest, until the
righteousness thereof go forth as brightness, and the salvation thereof as a
lamp that burneth. 2And the Gentiles shall see thy righteousness, and all kings thy glory: and
thou shalt be called by a new name, which the mouth of the Lord shall name. 3Thou shalt also be a crown of
glory in the hand of the Lord,
and a royal diadem in the hand of thy God. 4Thou shalt no more be termed
Forsaken; neither shall thy land any more be termed Desolate: but thou shalt be
called Hephzi–bah, and thy land Beulah: for the Lord delighteth in thee, and thy land shall be married.
66. Isaiah 62: 6-12  6I have set watchmen upon thy walls, O Jerusalem,
which shall never hold their peace day nor night: ye that make mention of
the Lord, keep not silence, 7And give him no rest, till he
establish, and till he make Jerusalem a praise in the earth. 8The Lord hath sworn by his right hand,
and by the arm of his strength, Surely I will no more give thy corn to be meat
for thine enemies; and the sons of the stranger shall not drink thy wine, for
the which thou hast laboured: 9But they that have gathered it shall eat it, and
praise the Lord; and they
that have brought it together shall drink it in the courts of my holiness. 10Go through, go through the
gates; prepare ye the way of the people; cast up, cast up the highway; gather
out the stones; lift up a standard for the people. 11Behold, the Lord hath proclaimed unto the end
of the world, Say ye to the daughter of Zion, Behold, thy salvation cometh;
behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him. 12And they shall call them, The
holy people, The redeemed of the Lord:
and thou shalt be called, Sought out, A city not forsaken.
67. Isaiah 63: 11-14  11Then he remembered the days of old, Moses, and his
people, saying, Where is he that brought them up out of the sea with the
shepherd of his flock? where is he that put his holy Spirit within him? 12That led them by the right
hand of Moses with his glorious arm, dividing the water before them, to make
himself an everlasting name? 13That led them through the deep, as an horse in the
wilderness, that they should not stumble? 14As a beast goeth down into the
valley, the Spirit of the Lord caused
him to rest: so didst thou lead thy people, to make thyself a glorious name.
68. Isaiah 65: 8-10 8Thus saith the Lord, As the new wine is found in the
cluster, and one saith, Destroy it not; for a blessing is in it: so will I do
for my servants’ sakes, that I may not destroy them all.9And I will bring forth a seed
out of Jacob, and out of Judah an inheritor of my mountains: and mine elect
shall inherit it, and my servants shall dwell there.10And Sharon shall be a fold of
flocks, and the valley of Achor a place for the herds to lie down in, for my
people that have sought me.
69. Isaiah 65: 18-23  18But be ye glad and rejoice for ever in that which I
create: for, behold, I create Jerusalem a rejoicing, and her people a joy. 19And I will rejoice in
Jerusalem, and joy in my people: and the voice of weeping shall be no more
heard in her, nor the voice of crying. 20There shall be no more thence
an infant of days, nor an old man that hath not filled his days: for the child
shall die an hundred years old; but the sinner being an hundred years old shall
be accursed. 21And they shall build houses, and inhabit them; and they shall plant
vineyards, and eat the fruit of them. 22They shall not build, and another inhabit; they
shall not plant, and another eat: for as the days of a tree are the days of my
people, and mine elect shall long enjoy the work of their hands. 23They shall not labour in vain,
nor bring forth for trouble; for they are the seed of the blessed of the Lord, and their offspring with them.
70. Isaiah 66:6-10  6A voice of noise from the city, a voice from the
temple, a voice of the Lord that
rendereth recompence to his enemies. 7Before she travailed, she brought forth; before her
pain came, she was delivered of a man child. 8Who hath heard such a thing?
who hath seen such things? Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day?
or shall a nation be born at once? for as soon as Zion travailed, she brought
forth her children. 9Shall I bring to the birth, and not cause to bring forth? saith the Lord: shall I cause to bring forth, and
shut the womb? saith thy God. 10Rejoice ye with Jerusalem, and be glad with her,
all ye that love her: rejoice for joy with her, all ye that mourn for her:
71. Isaiah 66: 20-22  20And they shall bring all your brethren for an
offering unto the Lord out
of all nations upon horses, and in chariots, and in litters, and upon mules,
and upon swift beasts, to my holy mountain Jerusalem, saith the Lord, asthe children of Israel bring an
offering in a clean vessel into the house of the Lord. 21And I will also take of them for priests and for
Levites, saith the Lord. 22For as the new heavens and the
new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, saith the Lord, so shall your seed and your name
72. Jeremiah 3: 12-15  12Go and proclaim these words toward the north, and
say, Return, thou backsliding Israel, saith the Lord; and I will not cause mine anger to fall upon you: for
I am merciful, saith the Lord,
and I will not keep anger for ever. 13Only acknowledge thine iniquity, that thou hast
transgressed against the Lord thy
God, and hast scattered thy ways to the strangers under every green tree, and
ye have not obeyed my voice, saith the Lord.
14Turn, O backsliding children, saith the Lord; for I am married unto you: and I will take you one of
a city, and two of a family, and I will bring you to Zion: 15And I will give you pastors
according to mine heart, which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding.
73. Jeremiah 3: 17-18  17At that time they shall call Jerusalem the throne
of the Lord; and all the
nations shall be gathered unto it, to the name of the Lord, to Jerusalem: neither shall they
walk any more after the imagination of their evil heart.18In those days the house of
Judah shall walk with the house of Israel, and they shall come together out of
the land of the north to the land that I have given for an inheritance unto
your fathers.
74. Jeremiah 3: 22 22Return, ye backsliding children, and
I will heal your backslidings. Behold, we come unto thee; for thou art the Lord our God.
75. Jeremiah 12:14-17  14Thus saith the Lord against
all mine evil neighbours, that touch the inheritance which I have caused my
people Israel to inherit; Behold, I will pluck them out of their land, and
pluck out the house of Judah from among them. 15And it shall come to pass,
after that I have plucked them out I will return, and have compassion on them,
and will bring them again, every man to his heritage, and every man to his
land. 16And it shall come to pass, if they will diligently learn the ways of my
people, to swear by my name, The Lord liveth;
as they taught my people to swear by Baal; then shall they be built in the
midst of my people. 17But if they will not obey, I will utterly pluck up and destroy that nation,
saith the Lord.
76. Jeremiah 16: 14,15  14Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that it shall no more be said,
The Lord liveth, that
brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt; 15But, The Lord liveth, that brought up the children
of Israel from the land of the north, and from all the lands whither he had
driven them: and I will bring them again into their land that I gave unto their
77. Jeremiah 16: 16  16Behold, I will send for many fishers,
saith the Lord, and they shall fish
them; and after will I send for many hunters, and they shall hunt them from
every mountain, and from every hill, and out of the holes of the rocks.
78. Jeremiah 23: 3-6  3And I will gather the remnant of my flock out of
all countries whither I have driven them, and will bring them again to their
folds; and they shall be fruitful and increase. 4And I will set up shepherds
over them which shall feed them: and they shall fear no more, nor be dismayed,
neither shall they be lacking, saith the Lord.
5Behold, the days come, saith the Lord,
that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and
prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth. 6In his days Judah shall be
saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and this is his name whereby he shall be
called, THE Lord OUR
79. Jeremiah 23: 7,8  7Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that they shall no more say,
The Lord liveth, which
brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt; 8But, The Lord liveth, which brought up and
which led the seed of the house of Israel out of the north country, and from
all countries whither I had driven them; and they shall dwell in their own
80. Jeremiah 24: 5-7  5Thus saith the Lord,
the God of Israel; Like these good figs, so will I acknowledge them that are
carried away captive of Judah, whom I have sent out of this place into the land
of the Chaldeans for their good. 6For I will set mine eyes upon them for good, and I
will bring them again to this land: and I will build them, and not pull them
down; and I will plant them, and not pluck them up. 7And I will give them an heart
to know me, that I am the Lord:
and they shall be my people, and I will be their God: for they shall return
unto me with their whole heart.
81. Jeremiah 25: 5-6  5They said, Turn ye again now every one from his
evil way, and from the evil of your doings, and dwell in the land that
the Lord hath given unto
you and to your fathers for ever and ever: 6And go not after other gods to
serve them, and to worship them, and provoke me not to anger with the works of
your hands; and I will do you no hurt.
82. Jeremiah 27: 21-22  21Yea, thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, concerning the
vessels that remain in the house of the Lord,
and in the house of the king of Judah and of Jerusalem; 22They shall be carried to
Babylon, and there shall they be until the day that I visit them, saith
the Lord; then will I bring
them up, and restore them to this place.
83. Jeremiah 29: 10-14 10For thus saith the Lord, That after seventy years be
accomplished at Babylon I will visit you, and perform my good word toward you,
in causing you to return to this place. 11For I know the thoughts that I
think toward you, saith the Lord,
thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. 12Then shall ye call upon me,
and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you. 13And ye shall seek me, and find
me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart. 14And I will be found of you,
saith the Lord: and I will
turn away your captivity, and I will gather you from all the nations, and from
all the places whither I have driven you, saith the Lord; and I will bring you again into
the place whence I caused you to be carried away captive.
84. Jeremiah 30: 2-3  2Thus speaketh the Lord God of Israel, saying, Write thee all the words
that I have spoken unto thee in a book. 3For, lo, the days come, saith
the Lord, that I will bring
again the captivity of my people Israel and Judah, saith the Lord: and I will cause them to return to
the land that I gave to their fathers, and they shall possess it.
85. Jeremiah 30: 10-11  10Therefore fear thou not, O my servant Jacob, saith
the Lord; neither be
dismayed, O Israel: for, lo, I will save thee from afar, and thy seed from the
land of their captivity; and Jacob shall return, and shall be in rest, and be
quiet, and none shall make him afraid. 11For I am with thee, saith
the Lord, to save thee:
though I make a full end of all nations whither I have scattered thee, yet will
I not make a full end of thee: but I will correct thee in measure, and will not
leave thee altogether unpunished.
86. Jeremiah 30: 17-22  17For I will restore health unto thee, and I will
heal thee of thy wounds, saith the Lord;
because they called thee an Outcast, saying, This is Zion, whom no man seeketh
after. 18Thus saith the Lord;
Behold, I will bring again the captivity of Jacob’s tents, and have mercy on
his dwellingplaces; and the city shall be builded upon her own heap, and the
palace shall remain after the manner thereof. 19And out of them shall proceed
thanksgiving and the voice of them that make merry: and I will multiply them,
and they shall not be few; I will also glorify them, and they shall not be
small. 20Their children also shall be as aforetime, and their congregation shall be
established before me, and I will punish all that oppress them. 21And their nobles shall be of
themselves, and their governor shall proceed from the midst of them; and I will
cause him to draw near, and he shall approach unto me: for who is this that
engaged his heart to approach unto me? saith the Lord. 22And ye shall be my people, and I will be your God.
87. Jeremiah 31: 3-6  3The Lord hath
appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting
love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee. 4Again I will build thee, and
thou shalt be built, O virgin of Israel: thou shalt again be adorned with thy
tabrets, and shalt go forth in the dances of them that make merry. 5Thou shalt yet plant vines
upon the mountains of Samaria: the planters shall plant, and shall eat them as
common things. 6For there shall be a day, that the watchmen upon the mount Ephraim shall
cry, Arise ye, and let us go up to Zion unto the Lord our God.
88. Jeremiah 31: 8,9  8Behold, I will bring them from the north country,
and gather them from the coasts of the earth, and with them the blind and the
lame, the woman with child and her that travaileth with child together: a great
company shall return thither. 9They shall come with weeping, and with
supplications will I lead them: I will cause them to walk by the rivers of
waters in a straight way, wherein they shall not stumble: for I am a father to
Israel, and Ephraim is my firstborn.
89. Jeremiah 31: 10-12 10Hear the word of the Lord, O ye nations, and declare it in
the isles afar off, and say, He that scattered Israel will gather him, and keep
him, as a shepherd doth his flock. 11For the Lord hath
redeemed Jacob, and ransomed him from the hand of him that was stronger than
he. 12Therefore they shall come and sing in the height of Zion, and shall flow
together to the goodness of the Lord,
for wheat, and for wine, and for oil, and for the young of the flock and of the
herd: and their soul shall be as a watered garden; and they shall not sorrow
any more at all.
90. Jeremiah 31: 15-17  15Thus saith the Lord;
A voice was heard in Ramah, lamentation, and bitter weeping; Rachel weeping for
her children refused to be comforted for her children, because they were not. 16Thus saith the Lord; Refrain thy voice from weeping,
and thine eyes from tears: for thy work shall be rewarded, saith the Lord; and they shall come again from the
land of the enemy. 17And there is hope in thine end, saith the Lord, that thy children shall come again to their own
91. Jeremiah 31: 20-21  20Is Ephraim my dear son? is he a pleasant child? for
since I spake against him, I do earnestly remember him still: therefore my
bowels are troubled for him; I will surely have mercy upon him, saith the Lord. 21Set thee up waymarks, make
thee high heaps: set thine heart toward the highway, even the way which thou
wentest: turn again, O virgin of Israel, turn again to these thy cities.
92. Jeremiah 31: 23-25 23Thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel;
As yet they shall use this speech in the land of Judah and in the cities
thereof, when I shall bring again their captivity; The Lord bless thee, O habitation of
justice, and mountain of holiness. 24And there shall dwell in Judah itself, and in all
the cities thereof together, husbandmen, and they that go forth with flocks. 25For I have satiated the weary
soul, and I have replenished every sorrowful soul.
93. Jeremiah 31: 27-28  27Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will sow the house of
Israel and the house of Judah with the seed of man, and with the seed of beast.
28And it shall come to pass, that like as I have watched over them, to pluck
up, and to break down, and to throw down, and to destroy, and to afflict; so
will I watch over them, to build, and to plant, saith the Lord.
94. Jeremiah 31: 36-37  36If those ordinances depart from before me, saith
the Lord, then the seed of
Israel also shall cease from being a nation before me for ever. 37Thus saith the Lord; If heaven above can be measured,
and the foundations of the earth searched out beneath, I will also cast off all
the seed of Israel for all that they have done, saith the Lord.
95. Jeremiah 32: 37-41  37Behold, I will gather them out of all countries,
whither I have driven them in mine anger, and in my fury, and in great wrath;
and I will bring them again unto this place, and I will cause them to dwell
safely: 38And they shall be my people, and I will be their God: 39And I will give them one
heart, and one way, that they may fear me for ever, for the good of them, and
of their children after them: 40And I will make an everlasting covenant with them,
that I will not turn away from them, to do them good; but I will put my fear in
their hearts, that they shall not depart from me. 41Yea, I will rejoice over them
to do them good, and I will plant them in this land assuredly with my whole
heart and with my whole soul.
96. Jeremiah 32: 42-44  42For thus saith the Lord; Like as I have brought all this great evil upon this people,
so will I bring upon them all the good that I have promised them. 43And fields shall be bought in
this land, whereof ye say, It is desolate without man or beast; it is given
into the hand of the Chaldeans. 44Men shall buy fields for money, and subscribe
evidences, and seal them, and take witnesses in the land of Benjamin, and in
the places about Jerusalem, and in the cities of Judah, and in the cities of
the mountains, and in the cities of the valley, and in the cities of the south:
for I will cause their captivity to return, saith the Lord.
97. Jeremiah 33: 7-9  7And I will cause the captivity of Judah and the
captivity of Israel to return, and will build them, as at the first. 8And I will cleanse them from
all their iniquity, whereby they have sinned against me; and I will pardon all
their iniquities, whereby they have sinned, and whereby they have transgressed
against me. 9And it shall be to me a name of joy, a praise and an honour before all the
nations of the earth, which shall hear all the good that I do unto them: and
they shall fear and tremble for all the goodness and for all the prosperity
that I procure unto it.
98. Jeremiah 33: 10-11  10Thus saith the Lord;
Again there shall be heard in this place, which ye say shall be desolate
without man and without beast, even in the cities of Judah, and in the streets
of Jerusalem, that are desolate, without man, and without inhabitant, and
without beast, 11The voice of joy, and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom,
and the voice of the bride, the voice of them that shall say, Praise the Lord of hosts: for the Lord is good; for his mercy
endureth for ever: and of them that shall bring the sacrifice of praise into
the house of the Lord. For I
will cause to return the captivity of the land, as at the first, saith
the Lord.
99. Jeremiah 33: 14-18  14Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will perform that good
thing which I have promised unto the house of Israel and to the house of Judah.
15In those days, and at that time, will I cause the Branch of righteousness
to grow up unto David; and he shall execute judgment and righteousness in the
land. 16In those days shall Judah be saved, and Jerusalem shall dwell safely: and
this is the name wherewith she shall be called, The Lord our righteousness. 17For thus saith the Lord; David shall never want a man to
sit upon the throne of the house of Israel;18Neither shall the priests the
Levites want a man before me to offer burnt offerings, and to kindle meat
offerings, and to do sacrifice continually.
100.   Jeremiah 33: 25-26  25Thus saith the Lord;
If my covenant be not with day and night, and if I have not appointed the
ordinances of heaven and earth; 26Then will I cast away the seed of Jacob, and David
my servant, so that I will not take any of his seed to be rulers over the seed
of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob: for I will cause their captivity to return, and
have mercy on them.
Jeremiah 42: 10-12  10If ye will still abide in this land, then will I
build you, and not pull you down, and I will plant you, and not pluck you up:
for I repent me of the evil that I have done unto you. 11Be not afraid of the king of Babylon, of whom ye
are afraid; be not afraid of him, saith the Lord: for I am with you to save you, and to deliver you from
his hand. 12And I will shew mercies unto
you, that he may have mercy upon you, and cause you to return to your own land.
 Jeremiah 46: 16  16He made many to fall, yea, one fell
upon another: and they said, Arise, and let us go again to our own people, and
to the land of our nativity, from the oppressing sword.
Jeremiah 46: 27-28  27But fear not thou, O my servant Jacob, and be not
dismayed, O Israel: for, behold, I will save thee from afar off, and thy seed
from the land of their captivity; and Jacob shall return, and be in rest and at
ease, and none shall make him afraid. 28Fear thou not, O Jacob my servant, saith the Lord: for I am with thee; for I will
make a full end of all the nations whither I have driven thee: but I will not
make a full end of thee, but correct thee in measure; yet will I not leave thee
wholly unpunished.
Jeremiah 50: 3-5  3For out of the north there cometh up a nation
against her, which shall make her land desolate, and none shall dwell therein:
they shall remove, they shall depart, both man and beast. 4In those days, and in that
time, saith the Lord, the
children of Israel shall come, they and the children of Judah together, going
and weeping: they shall go, and seek the Lord their
God. 5They shall ask the way to Zion with their faces thitherward, saying, Come,
and let us join ourselves to the Lord in
a perpetual covenant that shall not be forgotten.]
Jeremiah 50: 19-20 19And I will bring Israel again
to his habitation, and he shall feed on Carmel and Bashan, and his soul shall
be satisfied upon mount Ephraim and Gilead. 20In those days, and in that
time, saith the Lord, the iniquity
of Israel shall be sought for, and there shall be none; and the sins of Judah,
and they shall not be found: for I will pardon them whom I reserve.
Jeremiah 50: 33-34 33Thus saith the Lord of
hosts; The children of Israel and the children of Judah were oppressed
together: and all that took them captives held them fast; they refused to let
them go. 34Their Redeemer is strong; the Lord of
hosts is his name: he shall thoroughly plead their cause, that he may give rest
to the land, and disquiet the inhabitants of Babylon.
Jeremiah 51:5-6 5For Israel hath not been
forsaken, nor Judah of his God, of the Lord of
hosts; though their land was filled with sin against the Holy One of Israel. 6Flee out of the midst of
Babylon, and deliver every man his soul: be not cut off in her iniquity; for
this is the time of the Lord’s vengeance;
he will render unto her a recompence
 Jeremiah 51:45, 45My people, go ye out of
the midst of her, and deliver ye every man his soul from the fierce anger of
the Lord. 50Ye that have escaped
the sword, go away, stand not still: remember the Lord afar off, and let Jerusalem come into
your mind.
 Lamentations 4: 22  22The punishment of thine iniquity is
accomplished, O daughter of Zion; he will no more carry thee away into
captivity: he will visit thine iniquity, O daughter of Edom; he will discover
thy sins.
Ezekiel 11: 14-20  14Again the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, 15Son of man, thy brethren, even
thy brethren, the men of thy kindred, and all the house of Israel wholly, are
they unto whom the inhabitants of Jerusalem have said, Get you far from
the Lord: unto us is this
land given in possession. 16Therefore say, Thus saith the Lord God; Although I have cast them far off
among the heathen, and although I have scattered them among the countries, yet
will I be to them as a little sanctuary in the countries where they shall come.
17Therefore say, Thus saith the Lord God;
I will even gather you from the people, and assemble you out of the countries
where ye have been scattered, and I will give you the land of Israel. 18And they shall come thither,
and they shall take away all the detestable things thereof and all the
abominations thereof from thence. 19And I will give them one heart, and I will put a
new spirit within you; and I will take the stony heart out of their flesh, and
will give them an heart of flesh: 20That they may walk in my statutes, and keep mine
ordinances, and do them: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God.
Ezekiel 20: 34-38  34And I will bring you out from the people, and will
gather you out of the countries wherein ye are scattered, with a mighty hand,
and with a stretched out arm, and with fury poured out. 35And I will bring you into the
wilderness of the people, and there will I plead with you face to face. 36Like as I pleaded with your
fathers in the wilderness of the land of Egypt, so will I plead with you, saith
the Lord God. 37And I will cause you to pass
under the rod, and I will bring you into the bond of the covenant: 38And I will purge out from
among you the rebels, and them that transgress against me: I will bring them
forth out of the country where they sojourn, and they shall not enter into the
land of Israel: and ye shall know that I am the Lord.
Ezekiel 20: 40-44  40For in mine holy mountain, in the mountain of the
height of Israel, saith the Lord God,
there shall all the house of Israel, all of them in the land, serve me: there
will I accept them, and there will I require your offerings, and the
firstfruits of your oblations, with all your holy things. 41I will accept you with your
sweet savour, when I bring you out from the people, and gather you out of the
countries wherein ye have been scattered; and I will be sanctified in you
before the heathen. 42And ye shall know that I am the Lord,
when I shall bring you into the land of Israel, into the country for the which
I lifted up mine hand to give it to your fathers. 43And there shall ye remember
your ways, and all your doings, wherein ye have been defiled; and ye shall
lothe yourselves in your own sight for all your evils that ye have committed. 44And ye shall know that I am
the Lord, when I have wrought
with you for my name’s sake, not according to your wicked ways, nor according
to your corrupt doings, O ye house of Israel, saith the Lord God.
Ezekiel 28: 25,26  25Thus saith the Lord God; When I shall have gathered the house of Israel from the
people among whom they are scattered, and shall be sanctified in them in the
sight of the heathen, then shall they dwell in their land that I have given to
my servant Jacob. 26And they shall dwell safely therein, and shall build houses, and plant
vineyards; yea, they shall dwell with confidence, when I have executed
judgments upon all those that despise them round about them; and they shall
know that I am the Lord their
Ezekiel 34: 12-16  12As a shepherd seeketh out his flock in the day that
he is among his sheep that are scattered; so will I seek out my sheep, and will
deliver them out of all places where they have been scattered in the cloudy and
dark day. 13And I will bring them out from the people, and gather them from the
countries, and will bring them to their own land, and feed them upon the
mountains of Israel by the rivers, and in all the inhabited places of the
country. 14I will feed them in a good pasture, and upon the high mountains of Israel
shall their fold be: there shall they lie in a good fold, and in a fat pasture
shall they feed upon the mountains of Israel. 15I will feed my flock, and I
will cause them to lie down, saith the Lord God. 16I will seek that which was lost, and bring again
that which was driven away, and will bind up that which was broken, and will
strengthen that which was sick: but I will destroy the fat and the strong; I
will feed them with judgment.
Ezekiel 36: 7-12 7Therefore thus saith the
Lord God; I have lifted up
mine hand, Surely the heathen that are about you, they shall bear their shame. 8But ye, O mountains of Israel,
ye shall shoot forth your branches, and yield your fruit to my people of
Israel; for they are at hand to come. 9For, behold, I am for you, and I will turn unto
you, and ye shall be tilled and sown: 10And I will multiply men upon you, all the house of
Israel, even all of it: and the cities shall be inhabited, and the wastes shall
be builded: 11And I will multiply upon you man and beast; and they shall increase and
bring fruit: and I will settle you after your old estates, and will do better
unto you than at your beginnings: and ye shall know that I am the Lord. 12Yea, I will cause men to walk
upon you, even my people Israel; and they shall possess thee, and thou shalt be
their inheritance, and thou shalt no more henceforth bereave them of men.
 Ezekiel 36: 22-38  22Therefore say unto the house of Israel, Thus saith
the Lord God; I do not this
for your sakes, O house of Israel, but for mine holy name’s sake, which ye have
profaned among the heathen, whither ye went. 23And I will sanctify my great
name, which was profaned among the heathen, which ye have profaned in the midst
of them; and the heathen shall know that I am the Lord, saith the Lord God,
when I shall be sanctified in you before their eyes. 24For I will take you from among
the heathen, and gather you out of all countries, and will bring you into your
own land. 25Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all
your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you. 26A new heart also will I give
you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony
heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh. 27And I will put my spirit
within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my
judgments, and do them. 28And ye shall dwell in the land that I gave to your
fathers; and ye shall be my people, and I will be your God. 29I will also save you from all
your uncleannesses: and I will call for the corn, and will increase it, and lay
no famine upon you. 30And I will multiply the fruit of the tree, and the increase of the field,
that ye shall receive no more reproach of famine among the heathen. 31Then shall ye remember your
own evil ways, and your doings that were not good, and shall lothe yourselves
in your own sight for your iniquities and for your abominations. 32Not for your sakes do I this,
saith the Lord God, be it
known unto you: be ashamed and confounded for your own ways, O house of Israel.
33Thus saith the Lord God;
In the day that I shall have cleansed you from all your iniquities I will also
cause you to dwell in the cities, and the wastes shall be builded. 34And the desolate land shall be
tilled, whereas it lay desolate in the sight of all that passed by. 35And they shall say, This land
that was desolate is become like the garden of Eden; and the waste and desolate
and ruined cities are become fenced, and are inhabited. 36Then the heathen that are left
round about you shall know that I the Lord build
the ruined places, and plant that that was desolate: I the Lord have spoken it, and I will do
it. 37Thus saith the Lord God;
I will yet for this be enquired of by the house of Israel, to do it for them; I
will increase them with men like a flock. 38As the holy flock, as the
flock of Jerusalem in her solemn feasts; so shall the waste cities be filled
with flocks of men: and they shall know that I am the Lord.
Ezekiel 37: 1-14  1The hand of the Lord was upon me, and carried me out in the spirit of
the Lord, and set me down in
the midst of the valley which was full of bones, 2And caused me to pass by them
round about: and, behold, there were very many in the open valley; and, lo,
they were very dry. 3And he said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I answered, O
Lord God, thou knowest. 4Again he said unto me,
Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of
the Lord. 5Thus saith the Lord God unto these bones; Behold, I
will cause breath to enter into you, and ye shall live: 6And I will lay sinews upon
you, and will bring up flesh upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath
in you, and ye shall live; and ye shall know that I am the Lord. 7So I prophesied as I was
commanded: and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and behold a shaking, and
the bones came together, bone to his bone. 8And when I beheld, lo, the
sinews and the flesh came up upon them, and the skin covered them above: but
there was no breath in them. 9Then said he unto me, Prophesy unto the wind,
prophesy, son of man, and say to the wind, Thus saith the Lord God; Come from the four winds, O breath,
and breathe upon these slain, that they may live. 10So I prophesied as he
commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood up upon
their feet, an exceeding great army. 11Then he said unto me, Son of man, these bones are
the whole house of Israel: behold, they say, Our bones are dried, and our hope
is lost: we are cut off for our parts. 12Therefore prophesy and say
unto them, Thus saith the Lord God;
Behold, O my people, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of
your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel. 13And ye shall know that I am
the Lord, when I have opened
your graves, O my people, and brought you up out of your graves, 14And shall put my spirit in
you, and ye shall live, and I shall place you in your own land: then shall ye
know that I the Lord have
spoken it, and performed it, saith the Lord.
Ezekiel 37: 21-28  21And say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I will take the children of
Israel from among the heathen, whither they be gone, and will gather them on
every side, and bring them into their own land: 22And I will make them one
nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king to
them all: and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided
into two kingdoms any more at all: 23Neither shall they defile themselves any more with
their idols, nor with their detestable things, nor with any of their
transgressions: but I will save them out of all their dwellingplaces, wherein
they have sinned, and will cleanse them: so shall they be my people, and I will
be their God. 24And David my servant shall be king over them; and they all shall have one
shepherd: they shall also walk in my judgments, and observe my statutes, and do
them. 25And they shall dwell in the land that I have given unto Jacob my servant,
wherein your fathers have dwelt; and they shall dwell therein, even they, and
their children, and their children’s children for ever: and my servant David
shall be their prince for ever. 26Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them;
it shall be an everlasting covenant with them: and I will place them, and
multiply them, and will set my sanctuary in the midst of them for evermore. 27My tabernacle also shall be
with them: yea, I will be their God, and they shall be my people. 28And the heathen shall know
that I the Lord do
sanctify Israel, when my sanctuary shall be in the midst of them for evermore.
 Ezekiel 38: 8,12,16  8After many days thou shalt be
visited: in the latter years thou shalt come into the land that is brought back
from the sword, and is gathered out of many people, against the mountains of
Israel, which have been always waste: but it is brought forth out of the
nations, and they shall dwell safely all of them. 12To take a spoil, and to
take a prey; to turn thine hand upon the desolate places that are now
inhabited, and upon the people that are gathered out of the nations, which have
gotten cattle and goods, that dwell in the midst of the land. 16And thou shalt come up
against my people of Israel, as a cloud to cover the land; it shall be in the
latter days, and I will bring thee against my land, that the heathen may know
me, when I shall be sanctified in thee, O Gog, before their eyes.
 Ezekiel 39: 25-29  25Therefore thus saith the Lord God; Now will I bring again the
captivity of Jacob, and have mercy upon the whole house of Israel, and will be
jealous for my holy name; 26After that they have borne their shame, and all
their trespasses whereby they have trespassed against me, when they dwelt
safely in their land, and none made them afraid. 27When I have brought them again
from the people, and gathered them out of their enemies’ lands, and am
sanctified in them in the sight of many nations; 28Then shall they know that I am
the Lord their God,
which caused them to be led into captivity among the heathen: but I have
gathered them unto their own land, and have left none of them any more there. 29Neither will I hide my face
any more from them: for I have poured out my spirit upon the house of Israel,
saith the Lord God.
Daniel 12:1 And at that time shall Michael stand
up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there
shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time
thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the
Daniel 12:10-12  10 Many shall be purified,
and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the
wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand. 11 And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the
abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety
days. 12Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the
thousand three hundred and five and thirty days.
Hosea 1: 10-11  10 Yet the number of the
children of Israel shall be as the sand of the sea, which cannot be measured
nor numbered; and it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto
them, Ye are not my people, there it shall be said unto them, Ye are the sons of the living God. 11Then shall the children
of Judah and the children of Israel be gathered together, and appoint
themselves one head, and they shall come up out of the land: for great shall be the day of Jezreel.
Hosea 3: 4-5  4For the children of Israel shall
abide many days without a king, and without a prince, and without a sacrifice,
and without an image, and without an ephod, and without teraphim: 5afterward shall the
children of Israel return, and seek the Lord their God, and David their king; and
shall fear the Lord and his goodness in the latter days.
 Hosea 5:15 – 6:1-3  15 I will go and return to my place, till they
acknowledge their offense, and seek my face: in their affliction they will seek
me early.1Come, and let us return unto the Lord: for he hath torn, and
he will heal us; he hath smitten, and he will bind us up. 2 After two days will he revive us: in
the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight. 3Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the Lord: his going forth is
prepared as the morning; and he shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth.
Hosea 6: 11  11Also, O Judah, he hath set a harvest
for thee, when I returned the captivity of my people.
 Hosea 8: 10  10Yea, though they have hired among the
nations, now will I gather them, and they shall sorrow a little for the burden
of the king of princes.
Hosea 11: 8-12  8  How shall I give thee up,
E´phra-im? how shall I deliver thee, Israel? how shall I make
thee as Admah? how shall I set thee as Zebo´im? mine heart is
turned within me, my repentings are kindled together. 9I will not execute the
fierceness of mine anger, I will not return to destroy E´phra-im: for I am God,
and not man; the Holy One in the midst of thee: and I will not enter into the
city. 10They shall walk after the Lord:
he shall roar like a lion: when he shall roar, then the children shall tremble
from the west. 11They shall tremble as a bird out of Egypt, and as a dove out of the land of
Assyria: and I will place them in their houses, saith the Lord. 12E´phra-im compasseth me about
with lies, and the house of Israel with deceit: but Judah yet ruleth with God,
and is faithful with the saints.
 Hosea 14: 1,2,4-7 1O Israel, return unto the Lord thy God; for thou hast fallen by
thine iniquity. 2Take with you words, and turn to the Lord: say unto him, Take
away all iniquity, and receive us graciously: so will we render the
calves of our lips. 4I will heal their backsliding, I will
love them freely: for mine anger is turned away from him. 5I will be as the dew
unto Israel: he shall grow as the lily, and cast forth his roots as Lebanon. 6His branches shall
spread, and his beauty shall be as the olive tree, and his smell as Lebanon. 7They that dwell under
his shadow shall return; they shall revive as the corn, and grow as the vine: the
scent thereof shall be as the wine of Lebanon.
Joel 2:17-19   17Let the priests, the ministers of the Lord, weep between the porch and the
altar, and let them say, Spare thy people, O Lord, and give not thine heritage to reproach, that the
heathen should rule over them: wherefore should they say among the people,
Where is their God? 18Then will the Lord be
jealous for his land, and pity his people. 19Yea, the Lord will answer and say unto his
people, Behold, I will send you corn, and wine, and oil, and ye shall be
satisfied therewith: and I will no more make you a reproach among the heathen.
 Joel 2: 23-27,32  23Be glad then, ye children of Zion,
and rejoice in the Lord your God: for he hath given you the
former rain moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the
former rain, and the latter rain in the first month. 24And the floors shall be
full of wheat, and the vats shall overflow with wine and oil. 25And I will restore to
you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpillar,
and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you. 26And ye shall eat in
plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the name of the Lord your God, that hath dealt wondrously
with you: and my people shall never be ashamed. 27And ye shall know that
am in the midst of Israel, and that I am the Lord your God, and none else: and my
people shall never be ashamed. 32 And it shall come to
pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of
the Lord shall be delivered: for in mount Zion
and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the Lord hath said, and in the remnant whom
the Lord shall call.
Joel 3: 1,2  1For, behold, in those days, and in
that time, when I shall bring again the captivity of Judah and Jerusalem, 2I will also gather all
nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehosh´aphat, and will
plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have
scattered among the nations, and parted my land.
Joel 3:16-17  16  The Lord also shall roar out of Zion, and
utter his voice from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake: but
the Lord will be the hope of his people, and the
strength of the children of Israel. 17So shall ye know that I am the Lord your God dwelling in Zion, my holy
mountain: then shall Jerusalem be holy, and there shall no strangers pass
through her any more. ]
Joel 3:20-21  20But Judah shall dwell for ever, and
Jerusalem from generation to generation. 21For I will cleanse
their blood that I have not cleansed: for the Lord dwelleth in Zion.
Amos 9: 14-15  14And I will bring again the captivity of my people
of Israel, and they shall build the waste cities, and inhabit them;
and they shall plant vineyards, and drink the wine thereof; they shall also
make gardens, and eat the fruit of them. 15And I will plant them upon
their land, and they shall no more be pulled up out of their land which I have
given them, saith the Lord thy
 Obadiah 1: 17,19-21  17But upon mount Zion shall be
deliverance, and there shall be holiness; and the house of Jacob shall possess
their possessions. 19And they of the south shall possess the mount of
Esau; and they of the plain, the Philistines: and they
shall possess the fields of E´phra-im, and the fields of Samaria: and Benjamin shall possess Gil´e-ad. 20And the captivity of
this host of the children of Israel shall possess that of the Canaanites, even unto Zar´ephath; and the captivity of
Jerusalem, which is in Sepha´rad, shall possess the
cities of the south. 21And saviours shall come up on mount
Zion to judge the mount of Esau; and the kingdom shall be the Lord’s.
Micah 2: 12-13  12I will surely assemble, O Jacob, all
of thee; I will surely gather the remnant of Israel; I will put them together
as the sheep of Bozrah, as the flock in the midst of their fold: they shall
make great noise by reason of the multitude of men. 13The breaker is come up
before them: they have broken up, and have passed through the gate, and are
gone out by it; and their king shall pass before them, and the Lord on the head of them.
 Micah 4: 1,2  1But in the last days it shall come to
pass, that the mountain of the house of the Lord shall be established in the top of
the mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills; and people shall flow
unto it. 2And many nations shall come, and say,
Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, and to the house of
the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his
paths: for the law shall go forth of Zion, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.
Micah 4: 6-8  6In that day, saith the Lord, will I assemble her
that halteth, and I will gather her that is driven out, and her that I have
afflicted; 7and I will make her that halted a
remnant, and her that was cast far off a strong nation: and the Lord shall reign over them in mount Zion
from henceforth, even for ever. 8And thou, O tower of the flock, the
stronghold of the daughter of Zion, unto thee shall it come, even the first
dominion; the kingdom shall come to the daughter of Jerusalem.
Micah 4: 10-13  10 Be in pain, and labor to bring forth, O
daughter of Zion, like a woman in travail: for now shalt thou go forth out of
the city, and thou shalt dwell in the field, and thou shalt go even to
Babylon; there shalt thou be delivered; there the Lord shall redeem thee from the hand of thine enemies. 11Now also many nations are
gathered against thee, that say, Let her be defiled, and let our eye look upon
Zion. 12But they know not the thoughts of the Lord,
neither understand they his counsel: for he shall gather them as the sheaves
into the floor. 13Arise and thresh, O daughter of Zion; for I will
make thine horn iron, and I will make thy hoofs brass: and thou shalt beat in
pieces many people: and I will consecrate their gain unto the Lord, and their substance unto the Lord
of the whole earth.
 Micah 5: 2-4  2  But thou, Bethlehem
Eph´ratah, though thou be little among the thousands of
Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto
me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings
forth have been from of old, from everlasting. 3Therefore will he give
them up, until the time that she which travaileth hath brought
forth: then the remnant of his brethren shall return unto the children of
Israel. 4And he shall stand and feed in the
strength of the Lord, in the majesty of the
name of the Lord his God; and they shall abide: for
now shall he be great unto the ends of the earth.
Micah 7: 14-15  14Feed thy people with thy rod, the
flock of thine heritage, which dwell solitarily in the wood, in the midst of Carmel: let
them feed in Bashan and Gil´e-ad, as in the days
of old. 15According to the days of thy coming
out of the land of Egypt will I show unto him marvelous things.
 Micah 7: 18-20  18Who is a God like unto thee, that pardoneth
iniquity, and passeth by the transgression of the remnant of his heritage? he
retaineth not his anger for ever, because he delighteth in mercy. 19He will turn again, he
will have compassion upon us; he will subdue our iniquities; and thou wilt cast
all their sins into the depths of the sea. 20Thou wilt perform the
truth to Jacob, and the mercy to Abraham, which thou hast
sworn unto our fathers from the days of old.
Nahum 1:15  15  Behold upon the mountains the feet of
him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace! O Judah, keep thy solemn
feasts, perform thy vows: for the wicked shall no more pass through thee; he is
utterly cut off.
 Zephaniah 2: 7  7And the coast shall be for the
remnant of the house of Judah; they shall feed thereupon: in the houses of Ash´kelon
shall they lie down in the evening: for the Lord their God shall visit them, and turn
away their captivity.
Zephaniah 2:9-11  9 Therefore, as I live, saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, Surely
Moab shall be as Sodom, and the children of Ammon as Gomor´rah, even the breeding of nettles, and
saltpits, and a perpetual desolation: the residue of my people shall spoil
them, and the remnant of my people shall possess them. 10This shall they have
for their pride, because they have reproached and magnified themselves against the people of the Lord of hosts. 11The Lord will be terrible unto them: for he will
famish all the gods of the earth; and men shall worship him, every one from his
place, even all the isles of the heathen.
Zephaniah 3:12-17  12I will also leave in the midst of thee an afflicted
and poor people, and they shall trust in the name of the Lord. 13 The remnant of Israel
shall not do iniquity, nor speak lies; neither shall a deceitful tongue be
found in their mouth: for they shall feed and lie down, and none shall
make them afraid. 14Sing, O daughter of Zion; shout, O Israel; be glad
and rejoice with all the heart, O daughter of Jerusalem. 15The Lord hath taken away thy judgments,
he hath cast out thine enemy: the King of Israel, even theLord, is in the midst
of thee: thou shalt not see evil any more. 16In that day it shall be said
to Jerusalem, Fear thou not: and to Zion, Let not thine hands
be slack. 17The Lord thy God in
the midst of thee is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over
thee with joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with
 Zephaniah 3: 19,20  19Behold, at that time I will undo all
that afflict thee: and I will save her that halteth, and gather her that was
driven out; and I will get them praise and fame in every land where they have
been put to shame. 20At that time will I bring you again, even in the time that
I gather you: for I will make you a name and a praise among all people of the
earth, when I turn back your captivity before your eyes, saith the Lord.
 Haggai 2:5-9 According to the
word that I covenanted with you when ye came out of Egypt, so my Spirit
remaineth among you: fear ye not. 6 For thus saith the Lord of hosts; Yet once, it is a
little while, and I will shake the heavens, and the earth, and the sea, and the
dry land; 7and I will shake all nations, and the Desire of all
nations shall come: and I will fill this house with glory, saith the Lord of hosts. 8The silver is mine,
and the gold is mine, saith the Lord of hosts. 9The glory of this latter house
shall be greater than of the former, saith the Lord of hosts: and in this place will I give peace,
saith the Lord of hosts.
