The Lord Will Restore Israel

Jeremiah 16

14 "Therefore behold, the r days are coming," says the LORD, "that it shall no more be said, 'The LORD lives who brought up the children of Israel from the land of Egypt,' 15 "but, 'The LORD lives who brought up the children of Israel from the land of the s north and from all the lands where He had driven them.' For t I will bring them back into their land which I gave to their fathers.

16 "Behold, I will send for many u fishermen," says the LORD, "and they shall fish them; and afterward I will send for many hunters, and they shall hunt them from every mountain and every hill, and out of the holes of the rocks. 17 "For My v eyes are on all their ways; they are not hidden from My face, nor is their iniquity hidden from My eyes. 18 "And first I will repay w double for their iniquity and their sin, because x they have defiled My land; they have filled My inheritance with the carcasses of their detestable and abominable idols."

19 O LORD, y my strength and my fortress,
z My refuge in the day of affliction,
The Gentiles shall come to You
From the ends of the earth and say,
"Surely our fathers have inherited lies,
Worthlessness and a unprofitable things."
20 Will a man make gods for himself,
b Which are not gods?

21 "Therefore behold, I will this once cause them to know,
I will cause them to know
My hand and My might;
And they shall know that c My name is the LORD.
