The Ultimate Divine
12-Tribed Kingdom of Israel
Confirmations of the Regathering of the Tribes of
NOTE: After the exile of the Northern Ten
Tribes of Israel in the 8th century BCE, the Scriptures generally
differentiate between "Judah" and "Israel", as between "the House of
Judah" and "the House of Israel". The latter is also commonly
referred to as "the House of Ephraim" or "the House of Joseph". The
"House of Jacob" refers to all the Tribes of Israel. The
“House of Israel”, in some instances, when it appears not
paired with a reference to Judah, could also refer to all 12
Tribes. The context should confirm which is meant.
Jeremiah 3:14-18 "Return, faithless people," declares HaShem,
"for I am your Husband. I will choose you—one from a town and two from a
clan—and bring you to Zion. Then I will give you shepherds after My
own Heart, who will lead you with knowledge and understanding. In
those days, when your numbers have increased greatly in the land,"
declares HaShem, "men will no longer say, 'The Ark of the Covenant of
HaShem.' It will never enter their minds or be remembered; it will not be
missed, nor will another one be made. At that time they will call
Jerusalem The Throne of HaShem, and all nations will gather in Jerusalem
to honor the name of HaShem. No longer will they follow the stubbornness
of their evil hearts.
In those days the House of Judah will join
the House of Israel, and together they will come from a northern land to
the land I gave your forefathers as an inheritance.."
Yechezk'El (Ezekiel) 37:15-19 "And the Word of HaShem came to me saying,
'And you, son of man, take one stick to yourself and write on it, For
Judah, and for his companions, the sons of Israel. And take another stick
and write on it, For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim and all the house of
Israel, his companions. And draw them one to one for yourself, into one
stick. And they shall become one in your hand. And when the sons of
your people shall speak to you, saying, 'Will you not declare to us what
these mean to you?' Say to them, 'So says HaShem: Behold, I will
take the stick of Joseph which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes
of Israel, his companions. And I will put them with him, with the stick of
Judah, and I will make them one stick, and they shall be one in My
Yechezk'El (Ezekiel) 37:20-28 And the sticks shall be in your hand, the ones on
which you write before their eyes. And say to them, 'So says HaShem:
Behold, I will take the sons of Israel from among the nations, there where
they have gone, and will gather them from all around, and will bring them
into their own land. And I will make them one nation in the land, on the
mountains of Israel, and one King shall be for a king to all of them. And
they shall not be two nations still. And they will not be split into two
kingdoms any more. And they will not still be defiled with their
idols, even with their filthy idols, nor with all of their transgressions.
But I will save them out of all their dwelling places where they have
sinned in them, and I will cleanse them. So they shall be for a people to
Me and I will be their G-d. And My Servant, David, shall be King
over them. And there shall be one Shepherd to all of them. And they shall
walk in My judgments and keep My statutes, and do them. And they
shall dwell on the land that I have given to my servant, to Jacob, there
where your fathers dwelt in it. And they shall dwell on it, they and their
sons, and the sons of their sons, forever. And My Servant David shall be a
ruler to them forever. And I will cut a covenant of peace with them,
an everlasting covenant it shall be with them, And I will place them and
multiply them, and I will put My sanctuary in their midst forever.
And My tabernacle shall be with them, and I will be their G-d, and they
shall be My people. And when My sanctuary shall be in their midst
forever, the nations shall know that I, HaShem, sanctify Israel.'"
Yechezk'El (Ezekiel) 39:23-24 And the nations will know that the people of Israel
went into exile for their sin, because they were unfaithful to Me. So I
hid My Face from them and handed them over to their enemies, and they all
fell by the sword. I dealt with them according to their uncleanness
and their offenses, and I hid My Face from them.
"Therefore this is what the Sovereign HaShem says: I will now bring Jacob
back from captivity and will have compassion upon the whole House of
Israel, and I will be zealous for My Holy Name. They will forget their
shame and all the unfaithfulness they showed toward Me when they lived in
safety in their land with no one to make them afraid. When I have brought
them back from the nations and have gathered them from the countries of
their enemies, I will show Myself holy through them in the sight of many
nations. Then they will know that I am HaShem their G-d, for though I sent
them into exile among the nations, I will gather them to their own land,
not leaving any behind. I will no longer hide My Face from them, for I
will pour out My Spirit on the house of Israel, declares the Sovereign
Yechezk'El (Ezekiel) 36
"Son of man, prophesy to the mountains of Israel and
say, 'O mountains of Israel, hear the word of HaShem. 2 This is what the Sovereign HaShem says: The enemy said
of you, "Aha! The ancient heights have become our possession." ' 3 Therefore prophesy and say, 'This is what the Sovereign
HaShem says: Because they ravaged and hounded you from every side so that
you became the possession of the rest of the nations and the object of
people's malicious talk and slander, 4 therefore, O
mountains of Israel, hear the word of the Sovereign HaShem : This is what
the Sovereign HaShem says to the mountains and hills, to the ravines and
valleys, to the desolate ruins and the deserted towns that have been
plundered and ridiculed by the rest of the nations around you- 5 this is what the Sovereign HaShem says: In my burning
zeal I have spoken against the rest of the nations, and against all Edom,
for with glee and with malice in their hearts they made my land their own
possession so that they might plunder its pastureland.' 6 Therefore prophesy concerning the land of Israel and
say to the mountains and hills, to the ravines and valleys: 'This is what
the Sovereign HaShem says: I speak in my jealous wrath because you have
suffered the scorn of the nations. 7 Therefore this
is what the Sovereign HaShem says: I swear with uplifted hand that the
nations around you will also suffer scorn.
8 " 'But you, O
mountains of Israel, will produce branches and fruit for my people Israel,
they will soon come home. 9 I am
concerned for you and will look on you with favor; you will be plowed and
sown, 10 and I will multiply the number of people
upon you, even the whole house of Israel. The towns will be inhabited and
the ruins rebuilt. 11 I will increase the number of
men and animals upon you, and they will be fruitful and become numerous. I
will settle people on you as in the past and will make you prosper more
than before. Then you will know that I am HaShem. 12 I will cause people, my people Israel, to walk upon
you. They will possess you, and you will be their inheritance; you will
never again deprive them of their children.
13 " 'This is what the
Sovereign HaShem says: Because people say to you, "You [Mountains of
Israel] devour men and deprive your nation of its children," 14 therefore you will no longer devour men or make your
nation childless, declares the Sovereign HaShem. 15
No longer will I make you hear the taunts of the nations, and no longer
will you suffer the scorn of the peoples or cause your nation to fall,
declares the Sovereign HaShem.' "
16 Again the word of
HaShem came to me: 17 "Son of man, when the people
of Israel were living in their own land, they defiled it by their conduct
and their actions. Their conduct was like a woman's monthly uncleanness in
my sight. 18 So I poured out my wrath on them
because they had shed blood in the land and because they had defiled it
with their idols. 19 I dispersed them among the
nations, and they were scattered through the countries; I judged them
according to their conduct and their actions. 20
And wherever they went among the nations they profaned My Holy Name, for
it was said of them, 'These are HaShem's people, and yet they had to leave
His land.' 21 I had concern for My Holy Name, which
the House of Israel profaned among the nations where they had gone.
22 "Therefore say to the
House of Israel, 'This is what the Sovereign HaShem says: It is not for
your sake, O House of Israel, that I am going to do these things, but for
the sake of My Holy Name, which you have profaned among the nations where
you have gone. 23 I will show the holiness of My
Great Name, which has been profaned among the nations, the Name you have
profaned among them. Then the nations will know that I am HaShem, declares
the Sovereign HaShem, when I show myself Holy through you before their
24 " 'For I will take
you out of the nations; I will gather you from all the countries and bring
you back into your own land. 25 I will sprinkle
clean water on you, and you will be clean; I will cleanse you from all
your impurities and from all your idols. 26 I will
give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you
your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. 27 And I will put My Spirit in you and move you to follow
My Decrees and be careful to keep My Laws. 28 You
will live in the land I gave your forefathers; you will be My People, and
I will be your G-d. 29 I will save you from all
your uncleanness. I will call for the grain and make it plentiful and will
not bring famine upon you. 30 I will increase the
fruit of the trees and the crops of the field, so that you will no longer
suffer disgrace among the nations because of famine. 31 Then you will remember your evil ways and wicked
deeds, and you will loathe yourselves for your sins and detestable
practices. 32 I want you to know that I am not
doing this for your sake, declares the Sovereign HaShem. Be ashamed and
disgraced for your conduct, O House of Israel!
33 " 'This is what the
Sovereign HaShem says: On the day I cleanse you from all your sins, I will
resettle your towns, and the ruins will be rebuilt. 34 The desolate land will be cultivated instead of lying
desolate in the sight of all who pass through it. 35 They will say, "This land that was laid waste has
become like the Garden of Eden; the cities that were lying in ruins,
desolate and destroyed, are now fortified and inhabited." 36 Then the nations around you that remain will know that
I HaShem have rebuilt what was destroyed and have replanted what was
desolate. I HaShem have spoken, and I will do it.'
37 "This is what the
Sovereign HaShem says: Once again I will yield to the plea of the House of
Israel and do this for them: I will make their people as numerous as
sheep, 38 as numerous as the flocks for offerings
at Jerusalem during her appointed Feasts. So will the ruined cities be
filled with flocks of people. Then they will know that I am
"And when Abram was ninety
years old and nine, HaShem appeared to Abram, and said unto him …' I
will make my covenant between Me and thee, and will multiply thee
exceedingly … As for Me, behold, My Covenant is with thee, and thou shalt
be a father of many nations … And I will establish My Covenant between Me
and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting
Covenant, to be a G-d unto thee, and to thy seed after thee. And I
will give unto thee, and to thy seed after thee, the land wherein thou art
a stranger, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting Possession;
and I will be their God."
28:14 “Your descendants will be like the dust of the
and you will spread out to the West and to the East, to the
North and to the South. All peoples on earth will be blessed through you
and your offspring.”
(Deuteronomy) 4:27,29-31 “And HaShem
shall scatter you among
the peoples, and you shall be left few in number among the gentiles
where HaShem drives you.”
“But from there you shall seek HaShem your
G-d, and shall find, when you search for Him with all your heart and with
all your being.
In all your distress, when all these words
shall come upon you in the latter days, then you shall return to HaShem
your G-d and shall obey His voice.
For HaShem your G-d is a compassionate G-d, He does
not forsake you, nor destroy you, nor forget the covenant of your fathers
which He swore to them.”
D'varim (Deuteronomy) 30:1-5
"When all these blessings and
curses I have set before you come upon you and you take them to heart
wherever HaShem your G-d disperses you among the nations, and when you and
your children return to HaShem your G-d and obey him with all your heart
and with all your soul according to everything I command you today, then
HaShem your G-d will restore your fortunes and have compassion on you and
gather you again from all the nations where He scattered you.
Even if you have been banished to the most distant land under the heavens,
from there HaShem your G-d will gather you and bring you back. He
will bring you to the land that belonged to your fathers, and you will
take possession of it. He will make you more prosperous and numerous than

Yesha'Yahu (Isaiah) 11:10-16 "And in that day there
shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the
people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be
glorious. 11 And it shall come to pass in that day, that HaShem
shall set His Hand again the second time to recover the remnant of His
people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from
Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath,
and from the islands of the sea. 12 And He shall set up an
ensign (signal) for the nations,
assemble the outcasts of Israel and gather together the dispersed of Judah
from the four corners of the earth. Then Ephraim's jealousy will
come to an end, and the adversaries of Judah shall be cut off,
Ephraim shall not envy Judah, and Judah shall not harass Ephraim ...
16 There will be a highway for the remnant of his people that
is left from Assyria,
as there was for
Israel when they came up from Egypt.”
Yesha’Yahu (Isaiah) 14:1
“HaShem will have pity on Jacob, he will choose Israel once more and resettle them on their native soil.
Foreigners will join them, attaching themselves to the House of
Ya'acov. Nations will take them and escort them to their
homeland and the House of Israel will adopt them in the land of HaShem as
male and female slaves”
Bible, David Stern)
"Then the great HaShem will make for all Tribes on
this Hill, a feast rich with marrow and well-prepared dainties, and grape
juice well thickened by age; And
remove on this
Hill the Veil veiling the Tribesmen, and the covering that covers it from
all the Heathen; and HaShem Ever-Living destroy death for ever; and
wipe tears from each face; and turn from the earth the reproach of His
people; So the Living Life says!" (Ferrar Fenton

Yesha’Yahu (Isaiah) 43:1-21
this is what HaShem says - He Who created you, O Jacob, He Who
formed you, O Israel: "Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I
have summoned you by name; you are Mine. 2 When you pass
through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass
through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you
walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will
not set you ablaze. 3 For I am HaShem, your G-d, the
Holy One of Israel, your Savior; .... 4 Since you
are precious and honored in My sight, and because I love you,
I will give men in exchange for you, and people in exchange for your
life. 5 Do not be afraid, for I am with you;
I will bring your children from the East and gather
you from the West. 6
say to the North, 'Give them up!' and to the South, 'Do not hold them
back.' Bring my sons from afar and my daughters from the ends of the
earth - 7 everyone who is called by My Name, whom
I created for My Glory, whom I formed and made." ....
9 All the nations gather together and the
peoples assemble. Which of them foretold this and proclaimed to us the
former things? Let them bring in their witnesses to prove they were
right, so that others may hear and say, "It is true."
10 "You are my witnesses," declares HaShem, "and My servant
whom I have chosen, so that you may know and believe Me and
understand that I Am He. Before Me no god was formed, nor will
there be one after Me. 11 I, even I, am HaShem and
apart from Me there is no Savior" .....
18 "Forget the former things; do not dwell on
the past. 19 See,
I am doing a
new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am
making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland.
20 The wild animals honor Me, ... the jackals and the
owls, because I provide water in the desert and streams in the
wasteland, to give drink to My people, My Chosen,
21 the people I formed for Myself
that they may proclaim My Praise.” (Refer overall
context as also in Yechezk'el (Ezek.) 20)
Yesha'Yahu (Isaiah) 44:1-5 "Yet now hear, O
Ya'akov (Jacob) My servant; and Yisrael, whom I have chosen: This says
HaShem that made you, and formed you from the womb, 'Who will help
you? Fear not, O Ya'akov, My servant and you Yeshurun (meaning:
'straight and upright one'), whom I have chosen. 3 For I
will pour water upon him that is thirsty, and floods upon the dry ground:
I will pour My Spirit upon your seed (descendants), and My Blessings upon
your offspring.' 4 And they shall spring up as among the
grass, as willows by the water streams. 5 One shall say, 'I
belong to HaShem; and another shall call himself by the Name of
HaShem, another will call himself by Ya'acov's name, on his
hand another shall write HaShem's Name and be surnamed
'Israel.'" (Jerusalem Bible)
Yesha’Yahu (Isaiah) 45:
17 “Yisra’el shall be saved by HaShem with an everlasting
deliverance. You are not to be ashamed nor hurt, forever and
ever. 18 'Yes, thus', says HaShem, Creator of the
Heavens, Who is G-d, Who formed the earth and made it ...
19 I am HaShem unrivalled. I have not spoken in
secret. .... I HaShem, speak with directness. I express
Myself with clarity.”
20 “Gather yourselves and come; draw near
together, you who have escaped from the Gentiles.
Speak up, present your case .... Who foretold this and
revealed it in the past? Am I not HaShem? There is no other
god besides Me - a G-d of integrity and a
Saviour. There is none apart from Me. 22
“Turn to Me and be saved, all you ends of the earth!
For I am G-d, and there is none else.'
25 .... To Him shall come ashamed, all who
raged against Him.
Victorious and glorious
through HaShem shall be all the descendants of Yisra’el.”
Yesha’Yahu (Isaiah) 46:

upheld since you were conceived,
and have carried

I am G-d, and
there is no other;

I will grant
salvation to Zion,
My splendor to
Yesha'Yahu (Isaiah) 49:3
He said to me, "You are My servant,
Israel, in whom I will display My splendor." ....
And now HaShem says - He who formed me in the womb to be His
servant, to bring Jacob back to Him and gather Israel to
Himself, for I am honored in the eyes of HaShem and my G-d has been
my strength. 6
He says: 'It is too small a thing for you to be my
servant to restore the tribes of Jacob and bring back those of Israel I
have kept. I will also make you a light for the Gentiles, that you
may bring my salvation to the ends of the earth."
This is what HaShem says - the Redeemer and Holy One of Israel - to him
who was despised and abhorred by the nation, to the servant of
rulers: "Kings will see you and rise up, princes will see and
bow down, because of HaShem, who is faithful, the Holy One of
Israel, who has chosen you." 8
This is what HaShem says: "In the time of My Favor I
will answer you, and in the day of salvation I will help you;
I will keep you and will make you to be a covenant for the people,
to restore the land and to reassign its desolate inheritances,
9 to say to the
captives, 'Come out,' and to those in darkness, 'Be free!' "They
will feed beside the roads and find pasture on every barren hill. 10 They will neither hunger
nor thirst, nor will the desert heat or the sun beat upon them. He who
has compassion on them will guide them and lead them beside springs
of water. 11 I
will turn all my mountains into roads, and My highways will be
raised up. 12 See,
they will come from afar - some from the north, some from the
west, some from the region of Aswan."
13 Shout for joy, O heavens;
rejoice, O earth; burst into song, O mountains! For
HaShem comforts His people and will have compassion on His afflicted
ones. 14 But Zion
said, "HaShem has forsaken me, HaShem has forgotten me."
15 "Can a mother forget the baby
at her breast and have no compassion on the child she has borne?
Though she may forget, I will not forget you! 16 See, I have engraved you on the palms
of My Hands; your walls are ever before Me. 17 Your sons hasten back, and those who
laid you waste depart from you. 18 Lift up your eyes and look around;
all your sons gather and come to you. As surely as I live,"
declares HaShem, "you will wear them all as ornaments; you will put
them on, like a bride. 19
"Though you were ruined and made desolate and your land laid
now you will be too small for
your people, and those who devoured you will be far away.
20 The children
born during your bereavement will yet say in your hearing, 'This place is too small for us; give us
more space to live in.'
21 Then you will say in your
heart, 'Who bore me these? I was bereaved and barren; I
was exiled and rejected. Who brought these up? I was
left all alone, but these - where have they come from?' "
22 This is what the Sovereign
HaShem says: "See, I will beckon to the Gentiles, I will lift
up My banner to the peoples; they will bring your sons in
their arms and carry your daughters on their shoulders. 23 Kings will be your foster
fathers, and their queens your nursing mothers. They
will bow down before you with their faces to the ground; they
will lick the dust at your feet. Then you will know that I am
HaShem; those who hope in me will not be disappointed."
Can plunder be taken from warriors, or captives rescued from the
fierce [b] ? 25 But this is what HaShem
says: "Yes, captives will be taken from warriors, and plunder
retrieved from the fierce; I will contend with those who
contend with you, and your children I will save. 26 I will make your oppressors
eat their own flesh; they will be drunk on their own blood, as with
wine. Then all mankind will know that I, HaShem, am your
Savior, your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob."

declares HaShem, "and they will catch them. After that I will send for

they are not hidden from me, nor is their sin concealed from My eyes.

because they have defiled My Land with the lifeless forms of their vile
images and have filled My Inheritance with their detestable idols."

my refuge in
time of distress,
to you the nations will come
from the ends of

“Therefore I shall gather the
remnant of My flock out of all the lands where I have driven them,
and shall bring them back to their fold. And they shall bear and
increase. And I shall raise up shepherds over them, and they shall
feed them. And they shall fear no more, nor be discouraged, nor
shall they be lacking,” declares HaShem.” See, the days are coming,”
declares HaShem, when I shall raise for David a Branch of Righteousness,
and a Sovereign shall reign and act wisely, and shall do right-ruling and
righteousness in the earth. In His days
Yehudah shall be saved, and Israel dwell safely.”
YirmeYahu (Jeremiah) 23:7,8 "So, then the days are coming -
it is HaShem Who speaks - when people will no longer say, "As HaShem lives

lives, Who led back and brought home the descendants of the House of
Israel out of the land of the North and from all the countries to which He
had dispersed them, to live on their own soil." (Jer. 16:14,15

the exiles from Judah, whom I sent away
from this place to the land of the Babylonians. 6 My eyes will watch
over them for their good,
and I will bring them
back to this land. I will build them up and not tear them down; I will
plant them and not uproot them. 7 I will give them a heart to
know Me, that I am HaShem. They will be My People, and I will be their
G-d, for they will return to Me with all their heart.”
29:13-14 “And you shall seek Me, and shall find Me, when you
search for Me with all your heart. And I shall be found by you,’
declares HaShem, “and
I shall turn back your
captivity (return you from exile), and shall gather you from all the
Gentiles and from all the places where I have driven you,
And I shall bring you back to the
place from which I have exiled you.”

David their King whom I will raise up for them. So do not be afraid My
servant Jacob' - it is HaShem Who speaks - 'Israel do not be alarmed.

scattered you; I will not make an end of you,

who survive the sword (in exile) will find favor in the desert; I
will come to give rest to Israel." 4 I will build you up again
and you will be rebuilt, O Virgin Israel. Again you will take
up your tambourines and go out to dance with the joyful. 5
Again you will plant vineyards on the hills of Samaria; the farmers
will plant them and enjoy their fruit. 6 There will be a day
when watchmen cry out on the hills of Ephraim, 'Come, let us go up
to Zion, to HaShem our G-d.' "
7 This is what HaShem says: "Sing with
joy for Ya'acov; shout for the foremost of the nations.
Make your praises heard, and say, HaShem, save
your people, the remnant of Israel.' 8 See, I will bring them from the land of the North
and gather them from the ends of the earth. Among them will be the
blind and the lame, expectant mothers and women in labor; a great
throng will return.
9 They will come with weeping; they will pray
as I bring them back. I will lead them beside streams of water on a level
path where they will not stumble, because I am Israel's father, and
Ephraim is my firstborn son.
10 "Hear the word of HaShem, O nations;
proclaim it in distant coastlands: 'He who
scattered Israel will gather them and will watch over his flock like a
shepherd.' 11 For HaShem will ransom Ya'acov and redeem
them from the hand of those stronger than they. 12 They will come
and shout for joy on the heights of Zion; they will rejoice in the
bounty of HaShem - the grain, the new wine and the oil, the young of
the flocks and herds. They will be like a well-watered garden,
and they will sorrow no more. 13 Then maidens will dance and
be glad, young men and old as well. I will turn their mourning
into gladness; I will give them comfort and joy instead of sorrow.
14 I will satisfy the priests with abundance, and my
people will be filled with my bounty," declares HaShem.
"They will return from the land of the enemy.
17 So there is hope for your future," declares
HaShem. "Your children will return to their
own land. ..... 20 Is not Ephraim My dear son,
the child in whom I delight? Though I often speak against him,
I still remember him. Therefore My Heart yearns for him; I
have great compassion for him," declares HaShem.

to your towns. ........
How long will you wander, O unfaithful daughter? HaShem
will create a new thing on earth - the Woman sets
out to find her Husband again."
23 This is what
HaShem Almighty, the G-d of Israel, says: "When I
bring them back from captivity, the people in the land of Judah
and in its towns will once again use these words: 'HaShem bless you, O
righteous dwelling, O sacred mountain.' 24
People will live together in Judah and all its towns
- farmers and those who move about with their flocks. 25 I will
refresh the weary and satisfy the faint." ...........
27 "The days are coming," declares HaShem,
"when I will plant
the House of Israel and the
House of Judah with the offspring of men and of animals. 28 Just
as I watched over them to uproot and tear down, and to overthrow, destroy
and bring disaster, so I will watch over them to build and to plant,"
declares HaShem. ..........

HaShem says, He who appoints the sun to shine by day, Who
decrees the moon and stars to shine by night, Who stirs up the sea
so that its waves roar - HaShem Almighty is his name: 36

descendants of Israel ever cease to be a nation before me."
37 This is what HaShem says: "Only if the heavens above
can be measured and the foundations of the earth below be searched out
will I reject all the descendants of Israel because of all they have
done," declares HaShem.

YirmeYahu (Jeremiah) 32:37-44 “See,
I am gathering them out of all the lands where I
have driven them in My displeasure, and in My wrath, and in great
rage. And I shall bring them back to this
place, and shall let them dwell in safety. And they shall be My
people, and I shall be their G-d. And I shall give them one heart
and one way, to fear Me all the days, for the good of them and of their
children after them. And I shall make an everlasting covenant with
them, that I do not turn back from doing good to them. And I shall
put My fear in their hearts so as not to turn aside from Me. And I
shall rejoice over them to do good to them, and shall plant them in this
land in truth, with all My heart and with all My being. For thus
said HaShem, ‘As I have brought all this great evil on this people, so I
am bringing on them all the good that I am speaking to them. And
fields shall be bought in this land of which you are saying, “It is a
wasteland, without man or beast. It has been given into the hand of
the Chaldeans.” ‘Fields shall be bought for
silver, and deeds signed and sealed, and witnesses be called, in the
land of Binyamin, and in the
Yerushalayim, and in the cities of Yehudah, and in the cities of the
mountains, and in the cities of the low country, and in the cities of the
South. For I shall turn back their captivity (return them from
exile),’ declares HaShem.”
“... I will heal My people and will let
them enjoy abundant peace and security. 7
I will bring Judah
and Israel back from captivity (return them from exile) and will rebuild
them as they were before. 8 I will cleanse them from all the sin
they have committed against Me and will forgive all their sins of
rebellion against Me. 9 Then this city (Jerusalem) will bring Me
renown, joy, praise and honor before all nations on earth that hear of all
the good things I do for it; and they will be in awe and will tremble at
the abundant prosperity and peace I provide for it..”

is what HaShem says: 'You say about this place, "It is a desolate waste,
without men or animals." Yet in the towns of Judah and the streets of
Jerusalem that are deserted, inhabited by neither men nor animals, there
will be heard once more 11 the sounds of joy and gladness, the voices
of bride and bridegroom, and the voices of those who bring thank offerings
to the house of HaShem, ...
'For I will
restore the fortunes of the land as they were before,' says
HaShem. 12 This is what HaShem Almighty says: 'In this
place, desolate and without men or animals—in all its towns there will
again be pastures for shepherds to rest their flocks. 13 In the
towns of the hill country, of the western foothills and of the Negev, in
the territory of Benjamin, in the villages around Jerusalem and in the
towns of Judah, flocks will again pass under the hand of the One who
counts them,' says HaShem.
YirmeYahu (Jeremiah) 33:14-16 “See, the days are

have promised to
the House of Israel and to the
House of Yehudah: In those days and at that time I cause a Branch of
Righteousness to spring forth for David. And He shall do right-ruling and
righteousness in the earth. In those days Yehudah shall be saved, and
Jerusalem dwell in safety. And this is that which shall be proclaimed to
her: HaShem our Righteousness.”
YirmeYahu (Jeremiah) 33:23-26 "The word of
HaShem came to Jeremiah: 24 "Have you not noticed that these people are
saying, 'HaShem has rejected the two kingdoms He chose'? So they despise
My people and no longer regard them as a nation. 25 This is what HaShem says: 'If I
have not established My Covenant with day and night and the fixed laws of
heaven and earth, 26 then I will reject the descendants of Jacob
and David My servant and will not choose one of his sons to rule over the
descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. For
will restore their fortunes and have compassion on them.' "

Israel! For look, I am saving you from afar, and your descendants from the

be at ease, with no one disturbing. Do not fear, O Ya’akov My servant,”

the gentiles to which I have driven you, yet I do not make a complete end
of you. But I shall reprove you in right-ruling, and by no means leave you

50:19-20 “And I shall bring back Israel to his
pasture, and he shall feed on Karmel and Bashan. And his being
shall be satisfied on Mount Ephraim and Gilead. In those days and at

for, but there shall be none; and the sin of Judah, but none shall be
found. For I shall pardon those whom I leave as a remnant.”

Holy One of Israel.”

says: Although I sent them far away among the nations and scattered them
among the countries, yet for a little while I have been a Sanctuary for
them in the countries where they have gone.' 17 "Therefore say:
'This is what the Sovereign HaShem says: scattered I will gather you from
the nations and bring you back from the countries where you have been, and
I will give you back the land of Israel again.' 18 "They will return
to it and remove all its vile images and detestable idols. 19 I will give
them an undivided heart and put a new spirit in them; I will remove from
them their heart of stone and give them a heart of flesh. 20 so that they
can keep My Laws and respect My Judgments and put them into
practice. Then they will be My People and I shall be their G-d.”
Yechezk’El (Ezekiel) 14:6-8 “So say
to the House of Israel, “The Sovereign HaShem says this:
Come back, turn away from your foul idols, turn
your backs on all your loathsome practices; for if any member of the House
of Israel – or any foreigner living in Israel – deserts Me to enshrine his
foul idols in his heart and places the cause of his sinning right before
his eyes and then approaches a prophet to consult Me through him, he will
get his answer from Me, HaShem. I shall set my face against that person; I
shall make him an example and a byword; I shall rid My People of him, and
you will know that I am HaShem.

“Even if I send my four dreadful scourges on Jerusalem – sword,
famine, wild beasts and plague – to denude it of human and animal, even
so, there will be a remnant left, a few men and women who come through;
when they come to you and you see their conduct and actions, you will take
comfort in spite of the disaster which I have brought on Jerusalem, in
spite of all I have brought on her, They will comfort you, when you
see their conduct and actions, and so you will know that I have not done
in vain all I have done to her – declares the Sovereign HaShem.” (New

the desert of the nations and there, face to face, I will execute judgment
upon you. 36 As I judged your fathers in the desert of the land of Egypt,

you as you pass under my rod, and I will bring you into the bond of the
Covenant. 38 I will purge you of those who revolt and rebel against
Me. Although I will bring them out of the land where they are living, yet

after his scattered flock when he is with them, so will I look after My
sheep. I will rescue them from all the places where they were scattered on
a day of clouds and darkness. 13

settlements in the land. 14 I will tend them in a good pasture, and the
mountain heights of Israel will be their grazing land. There they will lie
down in good grazing land, and there they will feed in a rich pasture on
the mountains of Israel. 15
I Myself will tend My
sheep and have them lie down, declares the Sovereign HaShem. 16 I will
search for the lost and bring back the strays. I will bind up the injured
and strengthen the weak, but the sleek and the strong I will destroy. I
will shepherd the flock with justice.

Sovereign HaShem says: I will judge between one sheep and another, and
between rams and goats. 18 Is it not enough for you to feed on the
good pasture? Must you also trample the rest of your pasture with your
feet? Is it not enough for you to drink clear water? Must you also
muddy the rest with your feet? 19 Must My flock feed on what you
have trampled and drink what you have muddied with your feet?

HaShem says to them: See, I Myself will judge between the fat sheep and
the lean sheep. 21 Because you shove with flank and shoulder, butting all
the weak sheep with your horns until you have driven them away, 22 I will
save My flock, and they will no longer be plundered. I will judge between
one sheep and another. 23 I will place over them one shepherd, My servant
David, and he will tend them; he will tend them and be their shepherd. 24

rescue them from the hands of those who enslaved them. 28 They will no
longer be plundered by the nations, nor will wild animals devour them.

will provide for them a land renowned for its crops, and they will no
longer be victims of famine in the land or bear the scorn of the nations.

face against Mount Seir; prophesy against it 3 and say:

I will stretch out My hand against you and make you a desolate
waste. 4 I will turn your towns into ruins and you will
be desolate. Then you will know that I am HaShem .

and delivered the Israelites over to the sword at the time of their
calamity, the time their punishment reached its climax, 6
therefore as surely as I live, declares the Sovereign HaShem, I will give
you over to bloodshed and it will pursue you. Since you did not hate
bloodshed, bloodshed will pursue you. 7 I will make Mount Seir a
desolate waste and cut off from it all who come and go. 8 I will
fill your mountains with the slain; those killed by the sword will fall on
your hills and in your valleys and in all your ravines. 9 I will
make you desolate forever; your towns will not be inhabited. Then you will
know that I am HaShem.

anger and jealousy you showed in your hatred of them and I will make
Myself known among them when I judge you. 12 Then you will know that
I HaShem have heard all the contemptible things you have said against
the mountains of Israel. You said, "They have
been laid waste and have been given over to us to devour." 13 You
boasted against Me and spoke against Me without restraint, and I heard it.

rejoices, I will make you desolate. 15 Because you rejoiced when the
inheritance of the house of Israel became desolate, that is how I will

the land for an inheritance among the twelve tribes of Israel, with two
portions for Joseph. 14 You are to divide it equally among them.
Because I swore with uplifted hand to give it to your forefathers. This
land will become your inheritance.

"On the North
side it will run
from the Great Sea by the
Hethlon road past Lebo Hamath to Zedad, 16 Berothah and Sibraim (which
lies on the border between Damascus and Hamath), as far as Hazer Hatticon,
which is on the border of Hauran. 17 The boundary will extend from the sea
to Hazar Enan, along the northern border of
Damascus, with the border of Hamath to the North.
This will be
the North boundary.

between Hauran and
Damascus, along the Jordan
between Gilead and the land of Israel, to the Eastern sea and as far as
Tamar. This will be the East boundary.

far as the waters of Meribah Kadesh, then along the
Wadi of Egypt to the Great Sea. This will be
the South boundary.

boundary to a point opposite Lebo Hamath. This will be
the West boundary.

distribute this land among yourselves according to the Tribes of
Israel. 22 You are to allot it as an inheritance for
yourselves and for the aliens who have settled among you and who have
children. You are to consider them as native-born Israelites; along with
you they are to be allotted an inheritance among the Tribes of
Israel. 23 In whatever Tribe the alien settles, there you are
to give him his inheritance," declares the Sovereign HaShem.”
Yechezk’El (Ezekiel) 48
Verses 1 - 28 deal with the apportionment of the Land (between
the borders determined in ch. 47) amongst the 12 Tribes.

you are to allot as an inheritance to the tribes of Israel, and these will
be their portions," declares the Sovereign HaShem.

Tribes of Israel. The three gates on the North side will be the gate
of Reuben, the gate of Judah and the gate of Levi.

happened from the beginning of nations until then.
But at that time your people—everyone whose name is
found written in the book—will be delivered. 2
Multitudes who sleep in the dust of the earth will awake: some to
everlasting life, others to shame and everlasting contempt. 3
Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and
those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and
ever. 4 But you, Daniel, close up and seal the words of
the scroll until the time of the end. Many will go here and there to

two others, one on this bank of the river and one on the opposite bank. 6
One of them said to the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of
the river, "How long will it be before these astonishing things are
fulfilled?" 7 The man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of
the river, lifted his right hand and his left hand toward heaven, and I
heard him swear by him who lives forever, saying, "It will be for a time,
times and half a time. When the power of the holy people has been finally
broken, all these things will be completed."
8 I heard, but I did not understand. So I
asked, "My Lord, what will the outcome of all this be?"
9 He replied, "Go your way, Daniel,
because the words are closed up and sealed until the time of the end

then at the end of the days you will rise to receive your allotted

this lament I take up concerning you: "The Virgin of Israel
fell, and will never get up" .... 4 For HaShem says this
to the House of israel: 'Seek Me, and you shall live'.
Rabbi Eliezer explains the words "It will never get
up?" as follows: "A possible explanation is that the House of Israel
will not "get up" as an independent entity, but it will get up as an
entity totally incumbent to the kingdom of Judah."

be My people, and I shall be their G-d, in truth and in righteousness.”
