YEHEZQEL (Ezekiel) 37:15-28

15  And the word of יהוה came to me, saying,

16  "And you, son of man, take a stick for yourself and write on it, ‘For Yahuḏah and for the children of Yisra'ĕl, his companions.' Then take another stick and write on it, ‘For Yosĕph, the stick of Ephrayim, and for all the house of Yisra'ĕl, his companions.'

17  "Then bring them together for yourself into one stick, and they shall become one in your hand.

18  "And when the children of your people speak to you, saying, ‘Won't you show us what you mean by these?'

19  say to them, ‘Thus said the Master יהוה, "See, I am taking the stick of Yosĕph, which is in the hand of Ephrayim, and the tribes of Yisra'ĕl, his companions. And I shall give them unto him, with the stick of Yahuḏah, and make them one stick, and they shall be one in My hand." '

20  "And the sticks on which you write shall be in your hand before their eyes.

21  "And speak to them, ‘Thus said the Master יהוה, "See, I am taking the children of Yisra'ĕl from among the gentiles, wherever they have gone, and shall gather them from all around, and I shall bring them into their land.

22  "And I shall make them one nation in the land, on the mountains of Yisra'ĕl. And one sovereign shall be sovereign over them all, and let them no longer be two nations, and let them no longer be divided into two reigns.

23  "And they shall no longer defile themselves with their idols, nor with their filthiness, nor with any of their transgressions. And I shall save them from all their dwelling places in which they have sinned, and I shall cleanse them. And they shall be My people, and I be their Elohim,

24  while Dawiḏ My servant is sovereign over them. And they shall all have one shepherd and walk in My Right-Rulings and guard My Laws, and shall do them.

25  "And they shall dwell in the land that I have given to Yaʽaqoḇ My servant, where your fathers dwelt. And they shall dwell in it, they and their children and their children's children, forever, and My servant Dawiḏ be their prince forever.

26  "And I shall make a Covenant of peace with them - an everlasting Covenant it is with them. And I shall place them and increase them, and shall place My Miqdash in their midst, forever.

27  "And My Dwelling Place shall be over them. And I shall be their Elohim, and they shall be My people.

28  "And the gentiles shall know that I, יהוה, am making Yisra'ĕl qadosh, when My Miqdash is in their midst - forever." ' "
