Behold, the eyes of the Lord GOD are on the sinful kingdom, And I will eliminate it from the face of the earth; Nevertheless, I will not totally eliminate the house of Jacob,' Declares the LORD.
'For behold, I am commanding, And I will shake the house of Israel among all nations As grain
is shaken in a sieve, But not a pebble will fall to the ground.
All the sinners of My people will die by the sword, Those who say, ‘The catastrophe will not overtake or confront us.’
'On that day I will raise up the fallen shelter of David, And wall up its gaps; I will also raise up its ruins And rebuild it as in the days of old;
So that they may possess the remnant of Edom And all the nations who are called by My name,' Declares the LORD who does this.
'Behold, days are coming,' declares the LORD, 'When the plowman will overtake the reaper, And the one who treads grapes will overtake
him who sows the seed; When the mountains will drip grape juice, And all the hills will come apart.
I will also restore the fortunes of My people Israel, And they will rebuild the desolated cities and live in them;
They will also plant vineyards and drink their wine, And make gardens and eat their fruit.
