The Restoration of Israel

Amos 9

11 "In that day b I will raise up
the booth of David that is fallen
and repair its breaches,
and raise up its ruins
and rebuild it as in the days of old,
12 c that they may possess the remnant of Edom
and d all the nations who are called by my name," 1
declares the Lord who does this.

13 "Behold, the days are coming," declares the Lord,
e "when the plowman shall overtake the reaper
and the treader of grapes him who sows the seed;
f the mountains shall drip sweet wine,
and all the hills shall flow with it.
14 g I will restore the fortunes of my people Israel,
and h they shall rebuild the ruined cities and inhabit them;
i they shall plant vineyards and drink their wine,
and they shall make gardens and eat their fruit.
15 j I will plant them on their land,
k and they shall never again be uprooted
out of the land l that I have given them,"
says the Lord your God.
