The Lord's answer
He will be kind to his people.
‘I am giving you new
You will have enough to fill you up.
I will never again let people in other countries laugh about you.
I will push it into empty land where nothing grows.
I will make the front of it go into the sea on the east.
And I will make the back of it go into the sea on the west.
I will make its smell rise up high
because it has done great things.’
Be very happy.
Be sure that the Lord has done great things.
The fields in the
Fruit is growing on the trees.
Be very happy because of the things that the Lord your God has done.
He has given you just enough autumn rain.
He has given you the winter rain,
and the summer rain, as before.
And he will fill your jars with new
I will give you all that the great
All that my great army has eaten I will give you.
He has done great things for you.
My people will never again be ashamed.
You will know that I am the Lord your God.
And you will know that there is no other God.
My people will never again be ashamed.’
