10-11 “Yes, God’s Message: ‘You’re going to look at this place,
these empty and desolate towns of Judah and streets of Jerusalem,
and say, “A wasteland. Unlivable. Not even a dog could live here.”
But the time is coming when you’re going to hear laughter and
celebration, marriage festivities, people exclaiming, “Thank
God-of-the-Angel-Armies. He’s so good! His love never quits,” as
they bring thank offerings into God’s Temple. I’ll restore
everything that was lost in this land. I’ll make everything as good
as new.’ I, God, say so.
12-13 “God-of-the-Angel-Armies says: ‘This coming desolation, unfit
for even a stray dog, is once again going to become a pasture for
shepherds who care for their flocks. You’ll see flocks everywhere—in
the mountains around the towns of the Shephelah and Negev, all over
the territory of Benjamin, around Jerusalem and the towns of
Judah—flocks under the care of shepherds who keep track of each
sheep.’ God says so.
A Fresh and True Shoot from the David-Tree
14-18 “‘Watch for this: The time is coming’—God’s Decree—‘when I
will keep the promise I made to the families of Israel and Judah.
When that time comes, I will make a fresh and true shoot sprout from
the David-Tree. He will run this country honestly and fairly. He
will set things right. That’s when Judah will be secure and
Jerusalem live in safety. The motto for the city will be, “God Has
Set Things Right for Us.” The Message
