God must discipline Israel by sending her out of the land when she disobeys Him. But God always promises that Israel will return to the land. In God’s plan Israel and the land belong together.
In days to come, some people will still be left alive in Israel.
They will be from Jacob’s family line.
But they won’t depend any longer on
the nation that struck them down.
Instead, they will truly depend on the Lord.
He is the Holy One of Israel.
21 The people of Jacob who are still alive
will return to the Mighty God.
22 Israel, your people might be as many as the grains of sand by the sea.
But only a few of them will return.
The Lord has handed down a death sentence.
He will destroy his people.
What he does is right.
23 The Lord who rules over all will carry out his sentence.
The Lord will destroy the whole land.
PRAY FOR THE DAY WHEN ALL JEWS WILL RETURN TO ISRAEL.
