Restored Fortunes

Sing, daughter of Tziyon! Shout, Isra’el!  Be glad and rejoice with all your heart,
daughter of Yerushalayim! Adonai has removed the judgments against you, he has expelled your enemy; the king of Isra’el, Adonai, is right there with you. You no longer need to fear that anything bad will happen.  On that day, it will be said to Yerushalayim, “Do not fear, Tziyon!  don’t let your hands droop down.  Adonai your God is right there with you, as a mighty savior.  He will rejoice over you and be glad, he will be silent in his love, he will shout over you with joy.”  “I will gather those of yours who grieve over the appointed feasts and bear the burden of reproach [because they cannot keep them].  When that time comes, I will deal with all those who oppress you. I will save her who is lame, gather her who was driven away, and make them whose shame spread over the earth the object of praise and renown.  When that time comes, I will bring you in; when that time comes, I will gather you and make you the object of fame and praise among all the peoples of the earth — when I restore your fortunes before your very eyes,” says Adonai.  ~~ Zephaniah 3: 14-20
