36:3 Therefore, prophesy, and thou shalt say, Thus, saith My Lord, Yahweh,Because, even because, they have desolated and panted for you, on every side, That ye should become a possession to the rest of the nations, And ye have come up into the talk of the tongue and the slander of the people,
36:4 Therefore, ye mountains of Israel, hear ye the word of My Lord, Yahweh,Thus, saith My Lord, Yahweh, To the mountains and to the hills, to the channels and to the valleys, and to the desolate waste places, and to the cities that are forsaken, which have become a prey and a derision, to the rest of the nations, which are on every side:
36:5 Therefore, Thus, saith My Lord, Yahweh, Surely, in the fire of my jealousy, have I spoken against the rest of the nations, and against Edom, all of it,Who have given my land to themselves for a possession, In the rejoicing of all the heart, In contempt of soul, To make of its produce a prey.
36:6 Therefore, prophesy, concerning the soil of Israel,and say to the mountains and to the hills, to the channels and to the valleys, Thus, saith My Lord, Yahweh, Behold me! In my jealousy and in mine indignation, have I spoken, Because, the insult of the nations, ye have borne;
36:8 But, ye, O mountains of Israel, Your boughs, shall ye shoot forth, And, your fruit, shall ye bear, For my people Israel, For they have drawn near to enter,
36:9 For lo! I am towards you, Therefore will I turn towards you, And ye shall be tilled, and sown;
36:10 And I will multiply, upon youmen, All the house of Israel, All of it, Then shall the cities, be inhabited, And, the waste places, shall be built,
36:11 And I will multiply upon youman and beast, And they shall multiply and be fruitful,And I will cause you to be inhabited as in your former estates, And will do you more good than at your beginnings, So shall ye know, that, I, am Yahweh;
36:12 And I will bring upon youmen, even my people Israel, That they may possess thee, So shalt thou be theirs, as an inheritance,And thou shalt no more again, make them childless.
36:15 And I will not suffer to be heard against thee, any more, the insult of the nations, And, the reproach of the peoples, shalt thou not bear any more,And, thy nations, shalt thou not cause to stumble any more, Declareth My Lord, Yahweh.
36:17 Son of man, The house of Israel, were dwelling upon their own soil, But they defiled it, by their way, and by their doings. Like the defilement of her that is removed, became their way before me.
36:18 So I poured out mine indignation upon them, Because of the blood which they had shed upon the land,Yea, with their manufactured gods, had they defiled it.
36:19 So I dispersed them among the nations, And they were scattered throughout the lands,According to their way and according to their doings, I judged them.
36:20 But, when they entered among the nations where they did enter, then profaned they my holy, Name,in that it was said of them, The people of Yahweh, these! Yet, from his land, have they come forth!
36:21 So then I had tender regard for my holy, Name,Which the house of Israel, had profaned, among the nations, where they had entered.
36:22 Therefore, say thou to the house of Israel, Thus, saith My Lord, Yahweh, Not for your sakes, am I, working, O house of Israel, But for my holy, Name, which ye have profaned, among the nations where ye have entered;
36:23 Therefore will I hallow my great, Name, that hath been profaned among the nations, which ye have profaned in their midst,So shall the nations know, that, I, am Yahweh, Declareth My Lord, Yahweh, When I have hallowed myself in you, before their eyes.
36:24 Therefore will I take you from among the nations, And gather you out of all the lands,And will bring you upon your own soil;
36:25 ¶ And I will throw upon you clean water, and ye shall be clean,From all your uncleannesses and from all your manufactured gods, will I cleanse you;
36:26 And I will give you a new heart, And, a new spirit, will I put within you,And I will take away the heart of stone, out of your flesh, And will give you a heart of flesh;
36:27 And, my spirit, will I put within you, And will cause, That, in my statutes, ye shall walk, And, my regulations, ye shall observe, and do;
36:28 And ye shall dwell in the land which I gave to your fathers,And ye shall become my, people, And, I, will become your, God;
36:29 And I will save you, out of all your uncleannesses,And will call for the corn, and will increase it, And will not lay upon you, famine;
36:30 And I will multiply, The fruit of the tree, and, The increase of the field,To the end that ye may not receive any more, the reproach of famine, among the nations.
36:31 Then shall ye call to mind, Your ways that were wicked, and, Your doings that were not good,And shall become loathsome in your own sight, For your iniquities, and, For your abominations.
36:34 And, the land that was made desolate, shall be tilled,Whereas it was a desolation, before the eyes of every passer-by;
36:35 And they shall say, This land that was made desolate, hath become like the garden of Eden,And, the cities that were waste and deserted and thrown down, now fenced, are inhabited;
36:36 So shall the nations that may be left remaining round about you know, that, I YahwehHave built that which was thrown down, and, Have planted that which was made desolate,I, Yahweh, have spoken, and performed.
