    …17″For this reason the Father loves Me, because I lay down My life so that I may take it again. 18″No one has taken it away from Me, but I lay it down on My own initiative. I have authority to lay it down, and I have authority to take it up again. This commandment I received from My Father.”

  14. They as a nation was made a promise from God Almighty to bring them home again. And He has kept His promise.

  15. 7 This is what the Lord says:

    “Sing with joy for Jacob;
    shout for the foremost of the nations.
    Make your praises heard, and say,
    ‘Lord, 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 the Lord, you nations;
    proclaim it in distant coastlands:
    ‘He who scattered Israel will gather them
    and will watch over his flock like a shepherd.’
    11 For the Lord will deliver Jacob
    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 the Lord—
    the grain, the new wine and the olive oil,
    the young of the flocks and herds.
    They will be like a well-watered garden,
    and they will sorrow no more.
    13 Then young women 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 the Lord.

    15 This is what the Lord says:

  16. 38 “The days are coming,” declares the Lord, “when this city will be rebuilt for me from the Tower of Hananel to the Corner Gate. 39 The measuring line will stretch from there straight to the hill of Gareb and then turn to Goah. 40 The whole valley where dead bodies and ashes are thrown, and all the terraces out to the Kidron Valley on the east as far as the corner of the Horse Gate, will be holy to the Lord. The city will never again be uprooted or demolished.”

  17. Dear God, you said you would bless those who bless Israel and curse those who curse Israel. This man has cursed your beloved. May You LORD arise as in days of old and let your wrath rain down on this man. And let it be told by those who know him that You yourself God did it by brining his own curse on his own life. Amen
