17 For I will restore health to you,
and your wounds I will heal,
says the Lord,
because they have called you an outcast:
It is Zion; no one cares for her!
18 Thus says the Lord:
I am going to restore the fortunes of the tents of Jacob,
and have compassion on his dwellings;
the city shall be rebuilt upon its mound,
and the citadel set on its rightful site.
19 Out of them shall come thanksgiving,
and the sound of merrymakers.
I will make them many, and they shall not be few;
I will make them honoured, and they shall not be disdained.
22 And you shall be my people,
and I will be your God.
