1 And thou son of man, prophesy unto the mountains of Israel, and say, Ye mountains of Israel, hear the word of Jehovah:

2 thus says the Lord Jehovih*: Because the enemy has said against you, Aha, even the eternal high·​·places are ours for a possession!

3 Therefore prophesy and say, Thus says the Lord Jehovih: Because, even because they have desolated you, and gulped· you ·down from all around, to make you become a possession for the residue of the nations, and you have been brought·​·up by the lip of the tongue, and the evil·​·report of the people;

4 therefore, ye mountains of Israel, hear the word of the Lord Jehovih: Thus says the Lord Jehovih to the mountains, and to the hills, to the channels, and to the ravines, to the desolate wastes, and to the cities that are forsaken, which were for plunder and for derision to the residue of the nations that are all around:

5 Therefore thus says the Lord Jehovih: Have I not, in the fire of My zeal, spoken against those who·​·are·​·left of the nations, and against all of Edom, who have given My land to them for a possession with the gladness of all their heart, with contempt of the soul, in·​·order·​·to drive· it ·out for plunder?

6 Therefore prophesy concerning the ground of Israel, and say to the mountains, and to the hills, to the channels, and to the ravines, Thus says the Lord Jehovih; Behold, I have spoken in My zeal and in My fury, because you have borne the humiliation of the nations:

7 therefore thus says the Lord Jehovih; I have lifted·​·up My hand: Surely the nations that are around you, they shall bear their humiliation.

8 But ye mountains of Israel, you shall put forth your boughs, and bear your fruit for My people Israel; for they are·​·near to come.

9 For, behold, I am for you, and I will turn to you, and you shall be tilled and sown:

10 and I will multiply man upon you, all the house of Israel, all of it; and the cities shall be dwelt·​·in, and the wastes shall be built:

11 and I will multiply on you, man and beast; and they shall multiply and be·​·fruitful; and I will cause you to dwell according·​·to your ancient times, and will do·​·better to you than in your beginnings: and you shall know that I am Jehovah.

12 And I will cause man to walk upon you, even My people Israel; and they shall possess thee, and thou shalt be their inheritance, and thou shalt no more continue to bereave them of men.

13 Thus says the Lord Jehovih; Because they say to you, Thou art devouring man, and art bereaving thy nations;

14 therefore thou shalt devour man no more, neither bereave thy nations any·​·more, says the Lord Jehovih.

15 Neither will I cause men to hear in thee the humiliation of the nations any·​·more, neither shalt thou bear the reproach of the people any·​·more, neither shalt thou cause thy nations to stumble any·​·more, says the Lord Jehovih.

16 And the word of Jehovah was unto me, saying,

17 Son of man, the house of Israel dwelt on their own ground, and they defiled it by their own way and by their actions; their way was before Me as the uncleanness of her that is isolated.

18 And I spilled·​·out My fury on them over the blood that they had spilled on the land, and on their idols wherewith they had defiled it:

19 and I scattered them among the nations, and they were dispersed among the lands; according·​·to their way and according·​·to their actions I judged them.

20 And they came to the nations, whither they came, and they profaned My holy name, when they said to them, These are the people of Jehovah, and have gone·​·out from His land.

21 But I had pity for My holy name, which the house of Israel had profaned among the nations, whither they came.

22 Therefore say unto the house of Israel, Thus says the Lord Jehovih; I do this not for your sakes, O house of Israel, but for the sake of My holy name, which you have profaned among the nations, whither ye came.

23 And I will sanctify My great name, which was·​·profaned among the nations, which you have profaned in the midst of them; and the nations shall know that I am Jehovah, says the Lord Jehovih, when I shall be sanctified in you before their eyes.

24 And I will take you from the nations, and bring· you ·together out·​·of all lands, and will bring you onto your own ground.

25 And I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you shall be·​·clean; from all your uncleanness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you.

26 And I will give you a new heart, and a new spirit I will give among you; and I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh, and I will give you a heart of flesh.

27 And I will put My spirit among you, and make you to walk in My statutes, and you shall keep My judgments, and do them.

28 And you shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; and you shall be My people, and I will be your God.

29 And I will save you from all your uncleannesses; and I will call for the grain, and will multiply it, and will not put famine upon you.

30 And I will multiply the fruit of the tree, and the bounty of the field, so·​·that you shall receive no more the reproach of famine among the nations.

31 And you shall remember your own evil ways, and your actions that were not good, and shall loathe yourselves to your own face, for your iniquities and for your abominations.

32 Not for your sakes do I do this, says the Lord Jehovih, be it known unto you; be·​·ashamed and humiliated for your own ways, O house of Israel.

33 Thus says the Lord Jehovih; In the day that I shall have cleansed you from all your iniquities I will then cause you to dwell·​·in the cities, and the wastes shall be built.

34 And the desolate land shall be tilled, whereas it was desolate in the eyes of all that passed·​·by.

35 And they shall say, This· land ·yonder that was desolate has become as the garden of Eden; and the waste and desolate and broken·​·down cities have become fortified and are dwelt·​·in.

36 And from the nations that are left all around you shall know that I, Jehovah, build the broken·​·down places, and plant that which was desolate; I, Jehovah, have spoken it, and I will do it.

37 Thus says the Lord Jehovih; I will yet for this be inquired of by the house of Israel, to do it for them; I will multiply them with man like a flock.

38 As the holy flock, as the flock of Jerusalem in her solemn·​·occasions; so shall the waste cities be full with flocks of man; and they shall know that I am Jehovah.
