31:4 Again, will I build thee and thou shalt be built, thou virgin, Israel,Again, shalt thou deck thyself with thy timbrels, And go forth in the dance of them that make merry:
31:5 Again, shalt thou plant vineyards, in the mountains of Samaria, The planters have planted, and have laid open [the vineyards].
31:7 For, thus, saith YahwehShout ye for Jacob, with gladness, Make shrill thy voice, as the head of the nations,Publish ye, praise ye, and say, Save thou, O Yahweh, thy people, the remnant of Israel.
31:8 Behold me! bringing them in out of the land of the North, And I will gather them out of the remote parts of the earth, Among them, the blind and the lame, The woman with child and she that giveth birth, together,A great convocation, shall return hither:
31:9 With weeping, shall they come in, And, with supplications, will I lead them, I will bring them unto rivers of waters, By a smooth way, wherein they shall not stumble,For I have become, to Israel, a father, And, as for Ephraim, my firstborn, is he!
31:12 Then shall they come in, and shall shout in triumph on the height of Zion, And shall stream unto the goodness of Yahweh, To the wheat, and to the new wine, and to the oil, and to the young of the flocks and of the herds,So shall their soul become like a garden well watered, And they shall not again, languish, any more.
31:13 Then, shall, the virgin, rejoice, in the dance, And young men and elders, [rejoice,] together,And I will turn their mourning into gladness, and will comfort them, And will make them rejoice from their sorrow;
31:18 ¶ I have, heard, Ephraim, bemoaning himself, Thou hast chastised me, and I have been chastised, Like a bullock, not broken in, Suffer me to return, that I may, return, For, thou, art Yahweh my God.
31:19 Surely, after my return, I was filled with regret, And, after I came to know myself, I smote upon the thigh,I turned pale, and was even confounded, For I had borne the reproach of my youthful days.
31:20 Was Ephraim, a very precious son to me? Was he a most delightful, child? For, as often as I have spoken against him, I have, remembered, him, again! For this cause, have my affections been deeply moved for him, I must have, compassion, upon him, Declareth Yahweh.
31:21 Erect thee waymarks, Set thee up finger-posts, Apply thy heart to, The highwayThe road by which thou didst depart,Return, O virgin of Israel, Return unto these thy cities.
31:23 Thus, saith Yahweh of hosts, God of Israel, Again, shall they say this word, in the land of Judah and in the cities thereof, when I cause their captivity to return, Yahweh, bless thee, Thou home of righteousness! Thou mountain of holiness!
31:24 Then shall there dwell throughout Judah itself and all the cities thereof, together,Husbandmen, who shall move about with a flock;
31:25 For I have satiated the weary soul,And, every languishing soul, have I filled.
31:26 Upon this, I awoke and considered,And, my sleep, had been sweet to me!
31:28 And it shall come to pass, thatJust as I watched over them, to root up and to break down and to tear out and to destroy, and to break in pieces, So, will I watch over them, to build and to plant, Declareth Yahweh.
31:29 In those days, shall they say no more, Fathers, did eat sour grapes,And, children's teeth, are blunted!
31:30 But, every one, for his own iniquity, shall die,Any human being who eateth the sour grapes, his own teeth, shall be blunted.
31:32 Not like the covenant which I solemnised with their fathers, In the day when I grasped their hand, to bring them forth, out of the land of Egypt,In that, they, brake my covenant, Though, I, had become a husband unto them, Declareth Yahweh.
31:33 For, this, is the covenant which I will solemnize with the house of Israel, after those days, Declareth Yahweh, I will put my law within, them, Yea, on their heart, will I write it,So will I become their, God, And, they, shall become my, people.
31:34 Then shall they no longer teach, Every man his neighbour, and, Every man his brother, saying, Know ye Yahweh,For, they all, shall know, me, From the least of them, Even unto the greatest of them, Declareth Yahweh, For I will forgive their iniquity, And, their sin, will I remember, no more.
31:35 ¶ Thus, saith YahwehWho hath given the sun, for a light by day, The ordinances of the moon and the stars, for a light by night,Who excited the sea, and the waves thereof roared, Yahweh of hosts, is his name:
31:37 Thus, saith YahwehIf the heavens above, can be measured, Or the foundations of the earth beneath, be searched out, I also, may reject all the seed of Israel, for all that they have done, Declareth Yahweh.
31:39 Then shall go forth again the measuring-line straight forward, Over the hill Gareb, And it shall go round to Goah;
31:40 And, all the vale of the dead bodies, and of the ashes, and all the fields as far as the Kidron torrent-bed, as far as the horse-gate corner on the east, Shall be holy unto Yahweh,It shall not be rooted up, nor thrown down, any more, unto times age-abiding.
