12 Therefore they shall come and sing in the height of Zion, and shall flowtogether 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 beas a watered garden; and they shall not sorrow any more at all.
13 Then shall the virgin rejoice in the dance, both young men and old together:for I will turn their mourning into joy, and will comfort them, and makethem rejoice from their sorrow.
14 And I will satiate the soul of the priests with fatness, and my peopleshall be satisfied with my goodness, saith the LORD.
15 Thus saith the LORD; A voice was heard in Ramah, lamentation, and bitterweeping; Rahel weeping for her children refused to be comforted for herchildren, because they were not.

Jeremiah 32:36 And now therefore thus saith the LORD, the God of Israel,concerning this city, whereof ye say, It shall be delivered into the handof the king of Babylon by the sword, and by the famine, and by the pestilence;
37 Behold, I will gather them out of all countries, whither I have driventhem in mine anger, and in my fury, and in great wrath; and I will bringthem again unto this place, and I will cause them to dwell safely:
38 And they shall be my people, and I will be their God:
39 And I will give them one heart, and one way, that they may fear me forever, for the good of them, and of their children after them:
40 And I will make an everlasting covenant with them, that I will not turnaway from them, to do them good; but I will put my fear in their hearts,that they shall not depart from me.

Jeremiah 33:14 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will performthat good thing which I have promised unto the house of Israel and to thehouse of Judah.
15 In those days, and at that time, will I cause the Branch of righteousnessto grow up unto David; and he shall execute judgment and righteousness inthe land.
16 In 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.
17 For thus saith the LORD; David shall never want a man to sit upon thethrone of the house of Israel;
18 Neither shall the priests the Levites want a man before me to offer burntofferings, and to kindle meat offerings, and to do sacrifice continually.
19 And the word of the LORD came unto Jeremiah, saying,
20 Thus saith the LORD; If ye can break my covenant of the day, and my covenantof the night, and that there should not be day and night in their season;
21 Then may also my covenant be broken with David my servant, that he shouldnot have a son to reign upon his throne; and with the Levites the priests,my ministers.
22 As the host of heaven cannot be numbered, neither the sand of the seameasured: so will I multiply the seed of David my servant, and the Levitesthat minister unto me.
23 Moreover the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah, saying,
24 Considerest thou not what this people have spoken, saying, The two familieswhich the LORD hath chosen, he hath even cast them off? thus they have despisedmy people, that they should be no more a nation before them.
25 Thus saith the LORD; If my covenant be not with day and night, and ifI have not appointed the ordinances of heaven and earth;
26 Then will I cast away the seed of Jacob and David my servant, so thatI 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 onthem.

Jeremiah 46:27 But 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 fromthe land of their captivity; and Jacob shall return, and be in rest andat ease, and none shall make him afraid.
28 Fear 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; yetwill I not leave thee wholly unpunished.

Jeremiah 51:19 The portion of Jacob is not like them; for he is the formerof all things: and Israel is the rod of his inheritance: the LORD of hostsis his name.
20 Thou art my battle ax and weapons of war: for with thee will I breakin pieces the nations, and with thee will I destroy kingdoms;
21 And with thee will I break in pieces the horse and his rider; and withthee will I break in pieces the chariot and his rider;
22 With thee also will I break in pieces man and woman; and with thee willI break in pieces old and young; and with thee will I break in pieces theyoung man and the maid;
23 I will also break in pieces with thee the shepherd and his flock; andwith thee will I break in pieces the husbandman and his yoke of oxen; andwith thee will I break in pieces captains and rulers.
24 And I will render unto Babylon and to all the inhabitants of Chaldeaall their evil that they have done in Zion in your sight, saith the LORD.

Ezekiel 11:16 Therefore say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Although I have castthem far off among the heathen, and although I have scattered them amongthe countries, yet will I be to them as a little sanctuary in the countrieswhere they shall come.
17 Therefore say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; I will even gather you from thepeople, and assemble you out of the countries where ye have been scattered,and I will give you the land of Israel.
18 And they shall come thither, and they shall take away all the detestablethings thereof and all the abominations thereof from thence.
19 And 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 anheart of flesh:
20 That 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.
21 But as for them whose heart walketh after the heart of their detestablethings and their abominations, I will recompense their way upon their ownheads, saith the Lord GOD.

Ezekiel 36:24 For I will take you from among the heathen, and gather youout of all countries, and will bring you into your own land.
25 Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: fromall your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you.
26 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put withinyou: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I willgive you an heart of flesh.
27 And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes,and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.
28 And ye shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; and ye shallbe my people, and I will be your God.
29 I will also save you from all your uncleannesses: and I will call forthe corn, and will increase it, and lay no famine upon you.
30 And 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.
31 Then shall ye remember your own evil ways, and your doings that werenot good, and shall lothe yourselves in your own sight for your iniquitiesand for your abominations.
32 Not 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.
33 Thus saith the Lord GOD; In the day that I shall have cleansed you fromall your iniquities I will also cause you to dwell in the cities, and thewastes shall be builded.
34 And the desolate land shall be tilled, whereas it lay desolate in thesight of all that passed by.
35 And they shall say, This land that was desolate is become like the gardenof Eden; and the waste and desolate and ruined cities are become fenced,and are inhabited.
36 Then the heathen that are left round about you shall know that I theLORD build the ruined places, and plant that that was desolate: I the LORDhave spoken it, and I will do it.

Ezekiel 37:1 The hand of the LORD was upon me, and carried me out in thespirit of the LORD, and set me down in the midst of the valley which wasfull of bones,
2 And caused me to pass by them round about: and, behold, there were verymany in the open valley; and, lo, they were very dry.
3 And he said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I answered,O Lord GOD, thou knowest.
4 Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, Oye dry bones, hear the word of the LORD.
5 Thus saith the Lord GOD unto these bones; Behold, I will cause breathto enter into you, and ye shall live:
6 And I will lay sinews upon you, and will bring up flesh upon you, andcover you with skin, and put breath in you, and ye shall live; and ye shallknow that I am the LORD.
7 So 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.
8 And when I beheld, lo, the sinews and the flesh came up upon them, andthe skin covered them above: but there was no breath in them.
9 Then said he unto me, Prophesy unto the wind, prophesy, son of man, andsay to the wind, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Come from the four winds, O breath,and breathe upon these slain, that they may live.
10 So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them, andthey lived, and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army.
11 Then he said unto me, Son of man, these bones are the whole house ofIsrael: behold, they say, Our bones are dried, and our hope is lost: weare cut off for our parts.
12 Therefore 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 yourgraves, and bring you into the land of Israel.
13 And 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,
14 And shall put my spirit in you, and ye shall live, and I shall placeyou in your own land: then shall ye know that I the LORD have spoken it,and performed it, saith the Lord.
15 The word of the LORD came again unto me, saying,
16 Moreover, thou son of man, take thee one stick, and write upon it, ForJudah, and for the children of Israel his companions: then take anotherstick, and write upon it, For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim and for all thehouse of Israel his companions:
17 And join them one to another into one stick; and they shall become onein thine hand.
18 And when the children of thy people shall speak unto thee, saying, Wiltthou not shew us what thou meanest by these?
19 Say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will take the stickof Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes of Israel hisfellows, and will put them with him, even with the stick of Judah, and makethem one stick, and they shall be one in mine hand.
20 And the sticks whereon thou writest shall be in thine hand before theireyes.
21 And say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will take the childrenof Israel from among the heathen, whither they be gone, and will gatherthem on every side, and bring them into their own land:
22 And 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.
23 Neither shall they defile themselves any more with their idols, nor withtheir detestable things, nor with any of their transgressions: but I willsave them out of all their dwellingplaces, wherein they have sinned, andwill cleanse them: so shall they be my people, and I will be their God.
24 And David my servant shall be king over them; and they all shall haveone shepherd: they shall also walk in my judgments, and observe my statutes,and do them.
25 And 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 servantDavid shall be their prince for ever.
26 Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them; it shall be an everlastingcovenant with them: and I will place them, and multiply them, and will setmy sanctuary in the midst of them for evermore.
27 My tabernacle also shall be with them: yea, I will be their God, andthey shall be my people.
28 And the heathen shall know that I the LORD do sanctify Israel, when mysanctuary shall be in the midst of them for evermore.

Ezekiel 38:1 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
2 Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief princeof Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him,
3 And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, thechief prince of Meshech and Tubal:
4 And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bringthee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothedwith all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields,all of them handling swords:
5 Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet:
6 Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah of the north quarters,and all his bands: and many people with thee.
7 Be thou prepared, and prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy company thatare assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard unto them.
8 After many days thou shalt be visited: in the latter years thou shaltcome into the land that is brought back from the sword, and is gatheredout of many people, against the mountains of Israel, which have been alwayswaste: but it is brought forth out of the nations, and they shall dwellsafely all of them.
9 Thou shalt ascend and come like a storm, thou shalt be like a cloud tocover the land, thou, and all thy bands, and many people with thee.
10 Thus saith the Lord GOD; It shall also come to pass, that at the sametime shall things come into thy mind, and thou shalt think an evil thought:
11 And thou shalt say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; Iwill go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwellingwithout walls, and having neither bars nor gates,
12 To take a spoil, and to take a prey; to turn thine hand upon the desolateplaces that are now inhabited, and upon the people that are gathered outof the nations, which have gotten cattle and goods, that dwell in the midstof the land.
13 Sheba, and Dedan, and the merchants of Tarshish, with all the young lionsthereof, shall say unto thee, Art thou come to take a spoil? hast thou gatheredthy company to take a prey? to carry away silver and gold, to take awaycattle and goods, to take a great spoil?
14 Therefore, son of man, prophesy and say unto Gog, Thus saith the LordGOD; In that day when my people of Israel dwelleth safely, shalt thou notknow it?
15 And thou shalt come from thy place out of the north parts, thou, andmany people with thee, all of them riding upon horses, a great company,and a mighty army:
16 And thou shalt come up against my people of Israel, as a cloud to coverthe land; it shall be in the latter days, and I will bring thee againstmy land, that the heathen may know me, when I shall be sanctified in thee,O Gog, before their eyes.
17 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Art thou he of whom I have spoken in old timeby my servants the prophets of Israel, which prophesied in those days manyyears that I would bring thee against them?
18 And it shall come to pass at the same time when Gog shall come againstthe land of Israel, saith the Lord GOD, that my fury shall come up in myface.
19 For in my jealousy and in the fire of my wrath have I spoken, Surelyin that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel;
20 So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beastsof the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and allthe men that are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at my presence,and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall,and every wall shall fall to the ground.
21 And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my mountains,saith the Lord GOD: every man's sword shall be against his brother.
22 And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood; and I willrain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that are withhim, an overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone.
23 Thus will I magnify myself, and sanctify myself; and I will be knownin the eyes of many nations, and they shall know that I am the LORD.

3 And he shall judge among many people, and rebuke strong nations afar off;and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears intopruninghooks: nation shall not lift up a sword against nation, neither shallthey learn war any more.
4 But they shall sit every man under his vine and under his fig tree; andnone shall make them afraid: for the mouth of the LORD of hosts hath spokenit.
5 For all people will walk every one in the name of his god, and we willwalk in the name of the LORD our God for ever and ever.
6 In that day, saith the LORD, will I assemble her that halteth, and I willgather her that is driven out, and her that I have afflicted;

Zechariah 14:1 Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, and thy spoil shall bedivided in the midst of thee.
2 For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the cityshall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and halfof the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the peopleshall not be cut off from the city.

Acts 1:1 The former treatise have I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesusbegan both to do and teach,
2 Until the day in which he was taken up, after that he through the HolyGhost had given commandments unto the apostles whom he had chosen:
3 To whom also he shewed himself alive after his passion by many infallibleproofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertainingto the kingdom of God:
4 And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they shouldnot depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which,saith he, ye have heard of me.
5 For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with theHoly Ghost not many days hence.
6 When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord,wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel?
7 And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons,which the Father hath put in his own power.
8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you:and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea,and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

Acts 3:22 For Moses truly said unto the fathers, A prophet shall the Lordyour God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall yehear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you.
23 And it shall come to pass, that every soul, which will not hear thatprophet, shall be destroyed from among the people.
24 Yea, and all the prophets from Samuel and those that follow after, asmany as have spoken, have likewise foretold of these days.
25 Ye are the children of the prophets, and of the covenant which God madewith our fathers, saying unto Abraham, And in thy seed shall all the kindredsof the earth be blessed.
26 Unto you first God, having raised up his Son Jesus, sent him to blessyou, in turning away every one of you from his iniquities.

Acts 5:30 The God of our fathers raised up Jesus, whom ye slew and hangedon a tree.
31 Him hath God exalted with his right hand to be a Prince and a Saviour,for to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins.

Acts 9:11 And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the street whichis called Straight, and enquire in the house of Judas for one called Saul,of Tarsus: for, behold, he prayeth,
12 And hath seen in a vision a man named Ananias coming in, and puttinghis hand on him, that he might receive his sight.
13 Then Ananias answered, Lord, I have heard by many of this man, how muchevil he hath done to thy saints at Jerusalem:
14 And here he hath authority from the chief priests to bind all that callon thy name.
15 But the Lord said unto him, Go thy way: for he is a chosen vessel untome, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children ofIsrael:
16 For I will shew him how great things he must suffer for my name's sake.

Romans 3:1 What advantage then hath the Jew? or what profit is there ofcircumcision?
2 Much every way: chiefly, because that unto them were committed the oraclesof God.

Romans 11:1 I say then, Hath God cast away his people? God forbid. For Ialso am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin.
2 God hath not cast away his people which he foreknew. Wot ye not what thescripture saith of Elias? how he maketh intercession to God against Israelsaying,

Romans 11:11 I say then, Have they stumbled that they should fall? God forbid:but rather through their fall salvation is come unto the Gentiles, for toprovoke them to jealousy.

Romans 11:15 For if the casting away of them be the reconciling of the world,what shall the receiving of them be, but life from the dead?

Romans 11:17 And if some of the branches be broken off, and thou, beinga wild olive tree, wert graffed in among them, and with them partakest ofthe root and fatness of the olive tree;
18 Boast not against the branches. But if thou boast, thou bearest not theroot, but the root thee.
19 Thou wilt say then, The branches were broken off, that I might be graffedin.
20 Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest byfaith. Be not highminded, but fear:
21 For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also sparenot thee.
22 Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell,severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwisethou also shalt be cut off.

Romans 11:25 For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of thismystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness inpart is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.
26 And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall comeout of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:

Romans 11:28 As concerning the gospel, they are enemies for your sakes:but as touching the election, they are beloved for the fathers' sakes.

Galatians 6:16 And as many as walk according to this rule, peace be on them,and mercy, and upon the Israel of God.

Hebrews 8:8 For finding fault with them, he saith, Behold, the days come,saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israeland with the house of Judah:
9 Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the daywhen I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; becausethey continued not in my covenant, and I regarded them not, saith the Lord.
10 For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel afterthose days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and writethem in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be tome a people:
11 And they shall not teach every man his neighbour, and every man his brother,saying, Know the Lord: for all shall know me, from the least to the greatest.
12 For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and theiriniquities will I remember no more.
13 In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old. Now thatwhich decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away.
