Ezk 36:1And you, son of man, prophesy to the mountains of Israel and say, O mountains of Israel, hear the word of Jehovah.

Ezk 36:2Thus says the Lord Jehovah, Because the enemy has said against you, Aha! Even the ancient high places have become our possession!

Ezk 36:3Therefore prophesy and say, Thus says the Lord Jehovah, Because, even because, they have desolated and crushed you from every side so that you might become the possession of the remnant of the nations, and you have been taken up in the talk of different tongues and in the whispering of people;

Ezk 36:4Therefore, O mountains of Israel, hear the word of the Lord Jehovah. Thus says the Lord Jehovah to the mountains and the hills, to the ravines and the valleys, to the desolate ruins and to the forsaken cities, which have become plunder and a mocking to the remnant of the nations which are all around;

Ezk 36:5Therefore thus says the Lord Jehovah, Surely in the fire of My jealousy I have spoken against the remnant of the nations and against Edom, all of whom have appointed My land to themselves for a possession with the joy of all their heart, with despising in their soul, for their pasture and plunder.

Ezk 36:6Therefore prophesy concerning the land of Israel, and say to the mountains and to the hills, to the ravines and to the valleys, Thus says the Lord Jehovah, Indeed I am speaking in My jealousy and in My wrath because you have borne the disgrace of the nations.

Ezk 36:7Therefore thus says the Lord Jehovah, I swear, saying, Surely the nations that surround you will bear their own disgrace.

Ezk 36:8But you, O mountains of Israel, you will shoot forth your branches and yield your fruit for My people Israel, for their coming is near.

Ezk 36:9For indeed I am for you, and I will turn to you, and you will be tilled and sown;

Ezk 36:10And I will multiply people upon you, the entire house of Israel, all of it! The cities will also be inhabited, and the waste places will be rebuilt.

Ezk 36:11I will also multiply upon you man and beast, and they will increase and be fruitful, and I will make you inhabited as you were formerly, and I will make it better for you than when you began. Then you will know that I am Jehovah.

Ezk 36:12Yes, I will cause men to walk upon you, My people Israel; and they will possess you, and you will be their inheritance, and you will no longer bereave them of children again.

Ezk 36:13Thus says the Lord Jehovah, Because they are saying of you, You are a land that devours men and bereaves your nation of children;

Ezk 36:14Therefore you will no longer devour men or any longer bereave your nation of children, declares the Lord Jehovah.

Ezk 36:15And I will no longer let you hear the disgrace of the nations nor any longer bear the reproach of the peoples, and you will no longer cause your nation to stumble, declares the Lord Jehovah.

Ezk 36:16Moreover the word of Jehovah came to me, saying,

Ezk 36:17Son of man, when the house of Israel dwelt in their own land, they defiled it by their way and by their doings; their way before Me was like the uncleanness of a woman in her impurity.

Ezk 36:18Therefore I poured out My wrath upon them because of the blood which they had poured out upon the land and because they had defiled it with their idols.

Ezk 36:19And I scattered them among the nations, and they were dispersed through the countries. According to their way and according to their doings I judged them.

Ezk 36:20And when they came to the nations where they went, they profaned My holy name, inasmuch as it was said of them, These are the people of Jehovah, and they have gone forth out of His land.

Ezk 36:21But I had regard for My holy name, which the house of Israel had profaned among the nations where they went.

Ezk 36:22Therefore say to the house of Israel, Thus says the Lord Jehovah, I am not doing this for your sake, O house of Israel, but for My holy name, which you have profaned among the nations where you went.

Ezk 36:23And I will sanctify My great name, which has been profaned among the nations, which you have profaned in their midst; and the nations will know that I am Jehovah, declares the Lord Jehovah, when I am sanctified in you in their sight.

Ezk 36:24And I will take you from the nations and gather you from all the countries and bring you into your own land.

Ezk 36:25And I will sprinkle clean water upon you, and you will be clean; from all your filthiness and from all your idols I will cleanse you.

Ezk 36:26I will also give you a new heart, and a new spirit I will put within you; and I will take away the heart of stone out of your flesh, and I will give you a heart of flesh.

Ezk 36:27And I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and My ordinances you shall keep and do.

Ezk 36:28And you shall dwell in the land which I gave to your fathers; and you will be My people, and I will be your God.

Ezk 36:29And I will save you from all your uncleanness, and I will summon the grain and multiply it, and bring no famine upon you.

Ezk 36:30And I will multiply the fruit of the trees and the produce of the field, that you may no longer receive the reproach of famine among the nations.

Ezk 36:31Then you will remember your evil ways and your doings that were not good, and you will loathe yourselves in your own sight for your iniquities and for your abominations.

Ezk 36:32It is not for your sake that I am doing this, declares the Lord Jehovah; let it be known to you. Be ashamed and humiliated on account of your ways, O house of Israel.

Ezk 36:33Thus says the Lord Jehovah, On the day that I cleanse you from all your iniquities, I will cause the cities to be inhabited, and the waste places will be rebuilt.

Ezk 36:34And the land that was desolate will be tilled instead of being desolate in the sight of all who passed by.

Ezk 36:35And they will say, This land that was desolate has become like the garden of Eden, and the waste and desolate and ruined cities are fortified and inhabited.

Ezk 36:36Then the nations that are left all around you will know that I, Jehovah, have rebuilt the ruined places and planted that which was desolate. I, Jehovah, have spoken, and I will do it.

Ezk 36:37Thus says the Lord Jehovah, Moreover for this I will be inquired of by the house of Israel to do it for them; I will increase them with men like a flock.

Ezk 36:38Like the holy flock for sacrifices, like the flock of Jerusalem in her appointed feasts, so will the waste cities be filled with flocks of men; and they will know that I am Jehovah.
