Jeremiah 31:9-14

9 a  With weeping they shall come,
b  and with pleas for mercy I will lead them back,
I will make them c  walk by brooks of water,
d  in a straight path in which they shall not stumble,
for e  I am a father to Israel,
and Ephraim is f  my firstborn.
10 Hear the word of the  Lord, O nations,
and declare it in the coastlands far away;
say, ‘He who scattered Israel will g  gather him,
and will keep him h  as a shepherd keeps his flock.’
11 i  For the  Lord has ransomed Jacob
and has redeemed him from j  hands too strong for him.
12They shall come and sing aloud on the height of Zion,
k  and they shall be radiant l  over the goodness of the  Lord,
m  over the grain, the wine, and the oil,
and over the young of the flock and the herd;
n  their life shall be like a watered garden,
o  and they shall languish no more.
13 p  Then shall the young women rejoice in the dance,
and the young men and the old shall be merry.
q  I will turn their mourning into joy;
I will comfort them, and give them gladness for sorrow.
14 r  I will feast the soul of the priests with abundance,
and my people shall be satisfied with my goodness,

declares the  Lord.”
