70 Biblical Reasons To Stand With And Support Israel

This Booklet, entitled “Return to the Promised Land”, has
captured 70 scriptures from the Bible (TANAKH published by
the Jewish Publication Society) which are related to God’s
promise on the return of the Jewish people to the land of Israel.
The purpose of this Booklet is two-folded:

for Jews to understand that their return to the Promised
Land is God’s promise and calling; and
for Gentiles to understand that they have a part to play in
bringing Jews to return to the Promised Land.
“Has Jews’ return to the Promised Land not fulfilled in history?”
Some people argued. After 70 years of exile to Babylon, Jews
were allowed by King Cyrus to return to Jerusalem and rebuild
the Temple. However, it is stated in the Bible that “In that day,
my Lord will apply His hand AGAIN to redeeming the other
part of His people.” (Isaiah 11:11)

Deuteronomy 28:64-67 describes how Jews would suffer in
exile. If we study these scriptures carefully, we would notice
that it is not referring to their situation in Babylon, but the
situation over the last two thousand years, such as when they
were in Spain in the 14th century, Russia in the 19th century, and
Germany in the 20th century.

Whether you are Jew or Gentile, as you finish reading this
Booklet, may His spirit speak to you too. Respond to His
calling and act accordingly.

“Devarim – Deuteronomy”

When all these things befall you – the blessing and the curse
that I have set before you – and you take them to heart amidst
the various nations to which the Lord your God has banished
you, and you return to the Lord your God, and you and your
children heed His command with all your heart and soul, just
as I enjoin upon you this day, then the Lord your God will
restore your fortunes and take you back in love. He will bring
you together again from all the peoples where the Lord your
God has scattered you. Even if your outcasts are at the ends of
the world, from there the Lord your God will gather you, from
there He will fetch you. And the Lord your God will bring you to
the land that your fathers possessed, and you shall possess it;
and He will make you more prosperous and more numerous
than your fathers. (Deuteronomy 30:1-5)

“2 Divrei Hayamim – 2 Chronicles”

If you return to the Lord, your brothers and children will be
regarded with compassion by their captors, and will return to
this land; for the Lord your God is gracious and merciful; He
will not turn His face from you if you return to Him. (2
Chronicles 30:9)

“Nechemiah – Nehemiah”

Be mindful of the promise You gave to Your servant Moses: “If
you are unfaithful, I will scatter you among the peoples; but if
you turn back to Me, faithfully keep My commandments, even if
your dispersed are at the ends of the earth, I will gather them
from there and bring them to the place where I have chosen to
establish My name.” (Nehemiah 1:8-9)

“Tehillim – Psalms”

O that the deliverance of Israel might come from Zion! When
the Lord restores the fortunes of His people, Jacob will exult,
Israel will rejoice. (Psalms 14:7)

O offspring of Abraham, His servant, O descendants of Jacob,
His chosen ones. He is the Lord our God; His judgments are
throughout the earth. He is ever mindful of His covenant, the
promise He gave for a thousand generations, that He made
with Abraham, swore to Isaac, and confirmed in a decree for
Jacob, for Israel, as an eternal covenant, saying, “To you I will
give the land of Canaan as your allotted heritage.” (Psalms

When He saw that they were in distress, when He heard their
cry, He was mindful of His covenant and in His great
faithfulness relented. He made all their captors kindly disposed
toward them. Deliver us, O Lord our God, and gather us from
among the nations, to acclaim Your holy name, to glory in Your
praise. Blessed is the Lord, God of Israel, from eternity to
eternity. Let all the people say, “Amen.” Hallelujah. (Psalms

Thus let the redeemed of the Lord say, those He redeemed
from adversity, whom He gathered in from the lands, from east
and west, from the north and from the sea. (Psalms 107:2-3)

When the Lord restores the fortunes of Zion – we see it as in a
dream. (Psalms 126:1)

The Lord rebuilds Jerusalem; He gathers in the exiles of Israel.
He heals their broken hearts, and binds up their wounds.
(Psalms 147:2-3)

“Yeshayahu – Isaiah”

In that day, my Lord will apply His hand again to redeeming the
other part of His people from Assyria – as also from Egypt,
Pathros, Nubia, Elam, Shinar, Hamath, and the coastlands. He
will hold up a signal to the nations and assemble the banished
of Israel, and gather the dispersed of Judah from the four
corners of the earth. (Isaiah 11:11-12)

But the Lord will pardon Jacob, and will again choose Israel,
and will settle them on their own soil. And strangers shall join
them and shall cleave to the House of Jacob. For peoples shall
take them and bring them to their homeland; and the House of
Israel shall possess them as slaves and handmaids on the soil
of the Lord. They shall be captors of their captors and masters
to their taskmasters. And when the Lord has given you rest
from your sorrow and trouble, and from the hard service that
you were made to serve. (Isaiah 14:1-3)

And in that day, the Lord will beat out [the peoples like grain]
from the channel of the Euphrates to the Wadi of Egypt; and
you shall be picked up one by one, O children of Israel! And in
that day, a great ram’s horn shall be sounded; and the strayed
who are in the land of Assyria and the expelled who are in the
land of Egypt shall come and worship the Lord on the holy
mount, in Jerusalem. (Isaiah 27:12-13)

And the ransomed of the Lord shall return, and come with
shouting to Zion, crowned with joy everlasting. They shall
attain joy and gladness, while sorrow and sighing flee. (Isaiah

But you, Israel, My servant, Jacob, whom I have chosen, seed
of Abraham My friend – you whom I drew from the ends of the
earth and called from its far corners, to whom I said: You are

My servant; I chose you, I have not rejected you – Fear not, for
I am with you, Be not frightened, for I am your God; I
strengthen you and I help you, I uphold you with My victorious
right hand. (Isaiah 41:8-10)

Fear not, for I am with you: I will bring your folk from the East,
will gather you out of the West; I will say to the North, “Give
back!” And to the South, “Do not withhold! Bring My sons from
afar, and My daughters from the end of the earth.” (Isaiah

But confirmed the word of My servant and fulfill the prediction
of My messengers. It is I who say of Jerusalem, “It shall be
inhabited,” And of the towns of Judah, “They shall be rebuilt;
and I will restore their ruined places.” (Isaiah 44:26)

And now the Lord has resolved – He who formed me in the
womb to be His servant – To bring back Jacob to Himself, that
Israel may be restored to Him. And I have been honored in the
sight of the Lord, my God has been my strength. For He has
said: “It is too little that you should be My servant in that I raise
up the tribes of Jacob and restore the survivors of Israel: I will
also make you a light of nations, that My salvation may reach
the ends of the earth.” (Isaiah 49:5-6)

I will make all My mountains a road, and My highways shall be
built up. Look! These are coming from afar, these from the
north and the west, and these from the land of Sinim. (Isaiah

Zion says, “The Lord has forsaken me, my Lord has forgotten
me.” Can a woman forget her baby, or disown the child of her
womb? Though she might forget, I never could forget you. See,
I have engraved you on the palms of My hands, your walls are
ever before Me. Swiftly your children are coming; those who

ravaged and ruined you shall leave you. Look up all around

you and see: They are all assembled, are come to you! As I
live – declares the Lord – You shall don them all like jewels,
deck yourself with them like a bride. As for your ruins and
desolate places and your land laid waste – you shall soon be
crowded with settlers, while destroyers stay far from you. The
children you thought you had lost shall yet say in your hearing,
“The place is too crowded for me; make room for me to settle.”
(Isaiah 49:14-20)

Thus said the Lord God: I will raise My hand to nations and lift
up My ensign to peoples; and they shall bring your sons in their
bosoms, and carry your daughters on their backs. (Isaiah

So let the ransomed of the Lord return, and come with shouting
to Zion, crowned with joy everlasting. Let them attain joy and
gladness, while sorrow and sighing flee. (Isaiah 51:11)

How welcome on the mountain are the footsteps of the herald
announcing happiness, heralding good fortune, announcing
victory, telling Zion, “Your God is King!” Hark! Your watchmen
raise their voices, as one they shout for joy; for every eye shall
behold the Lord’s return to Zion. Raise a shout together, O
ruins of Jerusalem! For the Lord will comfort His people, will
redeem Jerusalem. (Isaiah 52:7-9)

The Lord has called you back as a wife forlorn and forsaken.
Can one cast off the wife of his youth? – said your God. For a
little while I forsook you, but with vast love I will bring you back.
In slight anger, for a moment, I hid My face from you; but with
kindness everlasting I will take you back in love – said the Lord
your Redeemer. (Isaiah 54:6–8)

“As for the foreigners who attach themselves to the Lord, to

minister to Him, and to love the name of the Lord, to be His
servants – all who keep the sabbath and do not profane it, and
who hold fast to My covenant – I will bring them to My sacred
mount and let them rejoice in My house of prayer. Their burnt
offerings and sacrifices shall be welcome on My altar; for My
House shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples.” Thus
declares the Lord God, who gathers the dispersed of Israel: “I
will gather still more to those already gathered.” (Isaiah 56:6-8)

Men from your midst shall rebuild ancient ruins, you shall
restore foundations laid long ago. And you shall be called
“Repairer of fallen walls, restorer of lanes for habitation.”
(Isaiah 58:12)

Raise your eyes and look about: they have all gathered and
come to you. Your sons shall be brought from afar, your
daughters like babes on shoulders. As you behold, you will
glow; your heart will throb and thrill – for the wealth of the sea
shall pass on to you, the riches of nations shall flow to you.
(Isaiah 60:4-5)

Who are these that float like a cloud, like doves to their cotes?
Behold, the coastlands await me, with ships of Tarshish in the
lead, to bring your sons from afar, and their silver and gold as
well – for the name of the Lord your God, for the Holy One of
Israel, who has glorified you. (Isaiah 60:8-9)

And they shall build the ancient ruins, raise up the desolations
of old, and renew the ruined cities, the desolations of many
ages. Strangers shall stand and pasture your flocks, aliens
shall be your plowmen and vine-trimmers; while you shall be
called “Priests of the Lord,” and termed “Servants of our God.”
You shall enjoy the wealth of nations and revel in their riches.
Because your shame was double – men cried, “Disgrace is
their portion” – Assuredly, they shall have a double share in

their land, joy shall be theirs for all time. (Isaiah 61:4-7)

Pass through, pass through the gates! Clear the road for the
people; Build up, build up the highway, remove the rocks!
Raise an ensign over the peoples! (Isaiah 62:10)

And out of all the nations, said the Lord, they shall bring all
your brothers on horses, in chariots and drays, on mules and
dromedaries, to Jerusalem My holy mountain as an offering to
the Lord – just as the Israelites bring an offering in a pure
vessel to the House of the Lord. And from them likewise I will
take some to be levitical priests, said the Lord. For as the new
heaven and the new earth which I will make shall endure by My
will – declares the Lord – so shall your seed and your name
endure. (Isaiah 66:20-22)

“Yirmiyahu – Jeremiah”

In those days, the House of Judah shall go with the House of
Israel; they shall come together from the land of the north to
the land I gave your fathers as a possession. (Jeremiah 3:18)

Assuredly, a time is coming – declares the Lord – when it shall
no more be said, “As the Lord lives who brought the Israelites
out of the land of Egypt,” but rather, “As the Lord lives who
brought the Israelites out of the northland, and out of all the
lands to which He had banished them.” For I will bring them
back to their land, which I gave to their fathers. (Jeremiah

Lo, I am sending for many fishermen – declares the Lord – and
they shall haul them out; and after that I will send for many
hunters, and they shall hunt them out of every mountain and
out of every hill and out of the clefts of the rocks. (Jeremiah

And I Myself will gather the remnant of My flock from all the
lands to which I have banished them, and I will bring them back
to their pasture, where they shall be fertile and increase. And I
will appoint over them shepherds who will tend them; they shall
no longer fear or be dismayed, and none of them shall be
missing – declares the Lord. See, a time is coming – declares
the Lord – when I will raise up a true branch of David’s line. He
shall reign as king and shall prosper, and he shall do what is
just and right in the land. In his days Judah shall be delivered
and Israel shall dwell secure. And this is the name by which he
shall be called “The Lord is our Vindicator.” (Jeremiah 23:3-6)

I will look upon them favorably, and I will bring them back to
this land; I will build them and not overthrow them; I will plant
them and not uproot them. And I will give them the
understanding to acknowledge Me, for I am the Lord. And they
shall be My people and I will be their God, when they turn back
to Me with all their heart. (Jeremiah 24:6-7)

For I am mindful of the plans I have made concerning you –
declares the Lord – plans for your welfare, not for disaster, to
give you a hopeful future. When you call Me, and come and
pray to Me, I will give heed to you. You will search for Me and
find Me, if only you seek Me wholeheartedly. I will be at hand
for you – declares the Lord – and I will restore your fortunes.
And I will gather you from all the nations and from all the
places to which I have banished you – declares the Lord – and
I will bring you back to the place from which I have exiled you.
(Jeremiah 29:11-14)

For days are coming – declares the Lord – when I will restore
the fortunes of My people Israel and Judah, said the Lord; and
I will bring them back to the land that I gave their fathers, and
they shall possess it. (Jeremiah 30:3)

But you, have no fear, My servant Jacob – declares the Lord –
be not dismayed, O Israel! I will deliver you from far away, your
folk from their land of captivity. And Jacob shall again have
calm and quiet with none to trouble him. (Jeremiah 30:10)

I will bring them in from the northland, gather them from the
ends of the earth – the blind and the lame among them, those
with child and those in labor – in a vast throng they shall return
here. They shall come with weeping, and with compassion will
I guide them. I will lead them to streams of water, by a level
road where they will not stumble. For I am ever a Father to
Israel, Ephraim is My first-born. (Jeremiah 31:8-9)

Hear the word of the Lord, O nations, and tell it in the isles afar.
Say: He who scattered Israel will gather them, and will guard
them as a shepherd his flock. For the Lord will ransom Jacob,
redeem him from one too strong for him. They shall come and
shout on the heights of Zion, radiant over the bounty of the
Lord – over new grain and wine and oil, and over sheep and
cattle. They shall fare like a watered garden, they shall never
languish again. (Jeremiah 31:10-12)

Thus said the Lord: A cry is heard in Ramah – wailing, bitter
weeping – Rachel weeping for her children. She refuses to be
comforted for her children, who are gone. Thus said the Lord:
Restrain your voice from weeping, your eyes from shedding
tears; for there is a reward for your labor – declares the Lord:
They shall return from the enemy’s land. And there is hope for
your future – declares the Lord: Your children shall return to
their country. (Jeremiah 31:15-17)

Thus said the Lord of Hosts, the God of Israel: They shall again
say this in the land of Judah and in its towns, when I restore
their fortunes: “The Lord bless you, abode of righteousness, O
holy mountain!” Judah and all its towns alike shall be inhabited

by the farmers and such as move about with the flocks. For I
will give the thirsty abundant drink, and satisfy all who languish.
(Jeremiah 31:23-25)

See, a time is coming – declares the Lord – when I will sow the
House of Israel and the House of Judah with seed of men and
seed of cattle; and just as I was watchful over them to uproot
and to pull down, to overthrow and to destroy and to bring
disaster, so I will be watchful over them to build and to plant –
declares the Lord. (Jeremiah 31:27-28)

See, I will gather them from all the lands to which I have
banished them in My anger and wrath, and in great rage; and I
will bring them back to this place and let them dwell secure.
They shall be My people, and I will be their God. I will give
them a single heart and a single nature to revere Me for all
time, and it shall be well with them and their children after them.
And I will make an everlasting covenant with them that I will not
turn away from them and that I will treat them graciously; and I
will put into their hearts reverence for Me, so that they do not
turn away from Me. I will delight in treating them graciously,
and I will plant them in this land faithfully, with all My heart and
soul. (Jeremiah 32:37-41)

And I will restore the fortunes of Judah and Israel, and I will
rebuild them as of old. (Jeremiah 33:7)

Thus said the Lord: As surely as I have established My
covenant with day and night – the laws of heaven and earth –
so I will never reject the offspring of Jacob and My servant
David; I will never fail to take from his offspring rulers for the
descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Indeed, I will
restore their fortunes and take them back in love. (Jeremiah

Why are your stalwarts swept away? They did not stand firm,

for the Lord thrust them down; He made many stumble, they

fell over one another. They said: “Up! Let us return to our
people, to the land of our birth, because of the deadly sword.”
(Jeremiah 46:15-16)

For a nation from the north has attacked her, it will make her
land a desolation. No one shall dwell in it, both man and beast
shall wander away. In those days and at that time – declares
the Lord – the people of Israel together with the people of
Judah shall come, and they shall weep as they go to seek the
Lord their God. They shall inquire for Zion; in that direction their
faces shall turn; they shall come and attach themselves to the
Lord by a covenant for all time, which shall never be forgotten.
(Jeremiah 50:3-5)

Assuredly, thus said the Lord of Hosts, the God of
Israel: … And I will lead Israel back to his pasture, and he shall
graze in Carmel and Bashan, and eat his fill in the hill country
of Ephraim and in Gilead. In those days and at that time –
declares the Lord – the iniquity of Israel shall be sought, and
there shall be none; the sins of Judah, and none shall be found;
for I will pardon those I allow to survive. (Jeremiah 50:18-20)

“Yechezkiel – Ezekiel”
Then the word of the Lord came to me: “O mortal, [I will save]
your brothers, your brothers, the men of your kindred, all of
that very House of Israel to whom the inhabitants of Jerusalem
say, ‘Keep far from the Lord; the land has been given as a
heritage to us.’ Say then: Thus said the Lord God: I have
indeed removed them far among the nations and have
scattered them among the countries, and I have become to
them a diminished sanctity in the countries whither they have
gone. Yet say: Thus said the Lord God: I will gather you from
the peoples and assemble you out of the countries where you
have been scattered, and I will give you the Land of Israel. And
they shall return there, and do away with all its detestable
things and all its abominations. I will give them one heart and
put a new spirit in them; I will remove the heart of stone from
their bodies and give them a heart of flesh, that they may follow
My laws and faithfully observe My rules. Then they shall be My
people and I will be their God. (Ezekiel 11:14-20)
For only on My holy mountain, on the lofty mount of Israel –
declares the Lord God – there, in the land, the entire House of
Israel, all of it, must worship Me. There I will accept them, and
there I will take note of your contributions and the choicest
offerings of all your sacred things. When I bring you out from
the peoples and gather you from the lands in which you are
scattered, I will accept you as a pleasing odor; and I will be
sanctified through you in the sight of the nations. Then, when I
have brought you to the land of Israel, to the country that I
swore to give to your fathers, you shall know that I am the Lord.
(Ezekiel 20:40-42)

Thus said the Lord God: When I have gathered the House of
Israel from the peoples among which they have been
dispersed, and have shown Myself holy through them in the
sight of the nations, they shall settle on their own soil, which I
gave to My servant Jacob, and they shall dwell on it in security.
They shall build houses and plant vineyards, and shall dwell on
it in security, when I have meted out punishment to all those
about them who despise them. And they shall know that I the
Lord am their God. (Ezekiel 28:25-26)

I will take them out from the peoples and gather them from the
countries, and I will bring them to their own land, and will
pasture them on the mountains of Israel, by the watercourses
and in all the settled portions of the land. I will feed them in

good grazing land, and the lofty hills of Israel shall be their

pasture. There, in the hills of Israel, they shall lie down in a
good pasture and shall feed on rich grazing land. I Myself will
graze My flock, and I Myself will let them lie down – declares
the Lord God. I will look for the lost, and I will bring back the
strayed; I will bandage the injured, and I will sustain the weak;
and the fat and healthy ones I will destroy. I will tend them
rightly. (Ezekiel 34:13-16)

Thus said the Lord God: I hereby swear that the nations which
surround you shall, in their turn, suffer disgrace. But you, O
mountains of Israel, shall yield your produce and bear your fruit
for My people Israel, for their return is near. For I will care you: I
will turn to you, and you shall be tilled and sown. I will settle a
large population on you, the whole House of Israel; the towns
shall be resettled, and the ruined sites rebuilt. I will multiply
men and beasts upon you, and they shall increase and be
fertile, and I will resettle you as you were formerly, and will
make you more prosperous than you were at first. And you
shall know that I am the Lord. I will lead men – My people
Israel – to you, and they shall possess you. You shall be their
heritage, and you shall not again cause them to be bereaved.

(Ezekiel 36:7-12)
Say to the House of Israel: Thus said the Lord God: Not for
your sake will I act, O House of Israel, but for My holy name,
which you have caused to be profaned among the nations to
which you have come. I will sanctify My great name which has
been profaned among the nations – among whom you have
caused it to be profaned. And the nations shall know that I am
the Lord – declares the Lord God – when I manifest My
holiness before their eyes through you. I will take you from
among the nations and gather you from all the countries, and I
will bring you back to your own land. I will sprinkle clean water
upon you, and you shall be clean: I will cleanse you from all

your uncleanness and from all your fetishes. And I will give you
a new heart and put a new spirit into you: I will remove the
heart of stone from your body and give you a heart of flesh;
and I will put My spirit into you. Thus I will cause you to follow
My laws and faithfully to observe My rules. Then you shall
dwell in the land which I gave to your fathers, and you shall be
My people and I will be your God.
And when I have delivered you from all your uncleanness, I will
summon the grain and make it abundant, and I will not bring
famine upon you. I will make the fruit of your trees and the
crops of your fields abundant, so that you shall never again be
humiliated before the nations because of famine. Then you
shall recall your evil ways and your base conduct, and you
shall loathe yourselves for your iniquities and your abhorrent
practices. Not for your sake will I act – declares the Lord God –
take good note! Be ashamed and humiliated because of your
ways, O House of Israel!
Thus said the Lord God: When I have cleansed you of all your
iniquities, I will people your settlements, and the ruined places
shall be rebuilt; and the desolate land, after lying waste in the
sight of every passerby, shall again be tilled. And men shall say,
“That land, once desolate, has become like the garden of Eden;
and the cities, once ruined, desolate, and ravaged, are now
populated fortified.” And the nations that are left around you
shall know that I the Lord have rebuilt the ravaged places and
replanted the desolate land. I the Lord have spoken and will
Thus said the Lord God: Moreover, in this I will respond to the
House of Israel and act for their sake: I will multiply their people
like sheep. As Jerusalem is filled with sacrificial sheep during
her festivals, so shall the ruined cities be filled with flocks of

people. And they shall know that I am the Lord.

The hand of the Lord came upon me. He took me out by the
spirit of the Lord and set me down in the valley. It was full of
bones. He led me all around them; there were very many of
them spread over the valley, and they were very dry. He said to
me, “O mortal, can these bones live again?” I replied, “O Lord
God, only You know.” And He said to me, “Prophesy over these
bones and say to them: O dry bones, hear the word of the Lord!
Thus said the Lord God to these bones: I will cause breath to
enter you and you shall live again. I will lay sinews upon you,
and cover you with flesh, and form skin over you. And I will put
breath into you, and you shall live again. And you shall know
that I am the Lord!”
I prophesied as I had been commanded. And while I was
prophesying, suddenly there was a sound of rattling, and the
bones came together, bone to matching bone. I looked, and
there were sinews on them, and flesh had grown, and skin had
formed over them; but there was no breath in them. Then he
said to me, “Prophesy to the breath, prophesy, O mortal! Say to
the breath: Thus said the Lord God: Come, O breath, from the
four winds, and breathe into these slain, that they may live
again.” I prophesied as He commanded me. The breath
entered them, and they came to life and stood up on their feet,
a vast multitude.
And He said to me, “O mortal, these bones are the whole
House of Israel. They say, ‘Our bones are dried up, our hope is
gone; we are doomed.’ Prophesy, therefore, and say to them:
Thus said the Lord God: I am going to open your graves and lift
you out of the graves, O My people, and bring you to the land
of Israel. You shall know, O My people, that I am the Lord,
when I have opened your graves and lifted you out of your
graves. I will put My breath into you and you shall live again,

And I will set you upon your own soil. Then you shall know that
I the Lord have spoken and have acted” – declares the Lord.
(Ezekiel 36:22-37:14)

And you shall declare to them: Thus said the Lord God: I am
going to take the Israelite people from among the nations they
have gone to, and gather them from every quarter, and bring
them to their own land. I will make them a single nation in the
land, on the hills of Israel, and one king shall be king of them all.
Never again shall they be two nations, and never again shall
they be divided into two kingdoms. (Ezekiel 37:21-22)
After a long time you shall be summoned; in the distant future
you shall march against the land [of a people] restored from
the sword, gathered from the midst of many peoples – against
the mountains of Israel, which have long lain desolate – [a
people] liberated from the nations, and now all dwelling secure.
(Ezekiel 38:8)

Assuredly, thus said the Lord God: I will now restore the
fortunes of Jacob and take the whole House of Israel back in
love; and I will be zealous for My holy name. They will bear
their shame and all their trespasses that they committed
against Me, when they dwell in their land secure and
untroubled, when I have brought them back from among the
peoples and gathered them out of the lands of their enemies
and have manifested My holiness through them in the sight of
many nations. They shall know that I the Lord am their God
when, having exiled them among the nations, I gather them
back into their land and leave none of them behind. I will never
again hide My face from them, for I will pour out My spirit upon
the House of Israel – declares the Lord God. (Ezekiel 39:25-)

“Hoshea – Hosea”
Afterward, the Israelites will turn back and will seek the Lord
their God and David their king – and they will thrill over the
Lord and over His bounty in the days to come. (Hosea 3:5)
Even Judah has reaped a harvest of you. When I would restore
My people’s fortunes (Hosea 6:11)
The Lord will roar like a lion, and they shall march behind Him;
when He roars, His children shall come fluttering out of the
west. (Hosea 11:10)

“Yoel – Joel”
But everyone who invokes the name of the Lord shall escape;
for there shall be a remnant on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem,
as the Lord promised. Anyone who invokes the Lord will be
among the survivors. For lo! In those days and in that time,
when I restore the fortunes of Judah and Jerusalem, I will
gather all the nations and bring them down to the Valley of
Jehoshaphat. There I will contend with them over my very own
people, Israel, which they scattered among the nations. For
they divided My land among themselves. (Joel 3:5-4:2)

A time is coming – declares the Lord – when the plowman shall
meet the reaper, and the treader of grapes Him who holds the
[bag of] seed; when the mountains shall drip wine and all the
hills shall wave [with grain]. I will restore My people Israel.
They shall rebuild ruined cities and inhabit them; they shall
plant vineyards and drink their wine; they shall till gardens and
eat their fruits. And I will plant them upon their soil, nevermore
to be uprooted from the soil I have given them – said the Lord
your God. (Amos 9:13–15)

“Michah – Micah”
I will assemble Jacob, all of you; I will bring together the
remnant of Israel; I will make them all like sheep of Bozrah, like
a flock inside its pen – they will be noisy with people. One who
makes a breach goes before them; they enlarge it to a gate
and leave by it. Their king marches before them, the Lord at
their head. (Micah 2:12-13)

In the days to come, the Mount of the Lord’s House shall stand
firm above the mountains; and it shall tower above the hills.
The peoples shall gaze on it with joy, and the many nations
shall go and shall say: “Come, let us go up to the Mount of the
Lord, to the House of the God of Jacob; that He may instruct us
in His ways, and that we may walk in His paths.” For instruction
shall come forth from Zion, the word of the Lord from
Jerusalem. (Micah 4:1-2)

In that day – declares the Lord – I will assemble the lame
[sheep] and will gather the outcast and those I have treated
harshly; and I will turn the lame into a remnant and the
expelled into a populous nation. And the Lord will reign over
them on Mount Zion now and for evermore. (Micah 4:6-7)

“Tzefaniah – Zephaniah”
At that time I will make [an end] of all who afflicted you. And I
will rescue the lame [sheep] and gather the strayed; and I will
exchange their disgrace for fame and renown in all the earth.
At that time I will gather you, and at [that] time I will bring you
[home]; for I will make you renowned and famous among all
the peoples on earth, when I restore your fortunes before their
very eyes. (Zephaniah 3:19-20)

Thus said the Lord of Hosts: I will rescue My people from the
lands of the east and from the lands of the west, and I will bring
them home to dwell in Jerusalem. They shall be My people,
and I will be their God – in truth and sincerity. (Zechariah 8:7-8)
Thus said the Lord of Hosts: Peoples and the inhabitants of
many cities shall yet come – the inhabitants of one shall go to
the other and say, “Let us go and entreat the favor of the Lord,
let us seek the Lord of Hosts; I will go, too.” The many peoples
and the multitude of nations shall come to seek the Lord of
Hosts in Jerusalem and to entreat the favor of the Lord. Thus
said the Lord of Hosts: In those days, ten men from nations of
every tongue will take hold – they will take hold of every Jew by
a corner of his cloak and say, “Let us go with you, for we have
heard that God is with you.” (Zechariah 8:20-23)
I will whistle to them and gather them, for I will redeem them;
they shall increase and continue increasing. For though I
sowed them among the nations, in the distant places they shall
remember Me, they shall escape with their children and shall
return. I will bring them back from the land of Egypt and gather
them from Assyria; and I will bring them to the lands of Gilead
and Lebanon, and even they shall not suffice for them. A
hemmed in force shall pass over the sea and shall stir up
waves in the sea; and all the deeps of the Nile shall dry up.
Down shall come the pride of Assyria, and the scepter of Egypt
shall pass away. But I will make them mighty through the Lord,
and they shall march proudly in His name – declares the Lord.
(Zechariah 10:8-12)
