Jeremiah 31:9-149 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.”
