Return from captivity:
I will set mine eyes upon them for good, and I will bring them again to this land: and
I will build them, and not pull [them] down;
I will plant them, and not pluck [them] up.
I will give them an heart to know me, that I [am] the LORD:
I will be their God:
I will bring again the captivity of my people Israel and Judah,
I will cause them to return to the land that I gave to their fathers,
I will restore health unto thee, and I will heal thee of thy wounds,
I will bring again the captivity of Jacob's tents, and have mercy on his dwellingplaces

I am returned unto Zion, and will dwell in the midst of Jerusalem.
I will save my people .
I will bring them.
I am jealous for Jerusalem and for Zion with a great jealousy.
But now I will not be(couldn’t trust each other) unto the residue of this people as in the former days(captivity)
I will cause the remnant of this people to possess all these things.
As ye were a curse so will I save you.
As I thought to punish you, when your fathers provoked me to wrath, and I repented not; so again have I thought in these days to do well unto Jerusalem .
I will be your God,
the LORD will have mercy on Jacob,
will yet choose Israel, and set them in their own land:
the LORD shall give thee rest from thy sorrow/fear/bondage
He that scattered Israel will gather him, and keep him, as a shepherd [doth] his flock.
I have watched over them, to pluck up, and to break down, and to throw down, and to destroy, and to afflict; so will I watch over them, to build, and to plant,

Like as I have brought all this great evil upon this people, so will I bring upon them all the good that I have promised them.
I will cause their captivity to return,
I will cause the captivity of Judah and Israel to return, and will build them, as at the first.
I will cleanse them from all their iniquity,
I will pardon all their iniquities,

(people shall say): the LORD of hosts: for the LORD [is] good; for his mercy [endureth] for ever:
I will cause to return the captivity of the land, as at the first,
I will perform that good thing which I have promised unto the house of Israel and Judah.
I will cause the Branch of righteousness to grow up unto David
my covenant of the day, and my covenant of the night,
my covenant with David my servant
will I multiply the seed of David my servant (measurelessly)
my covenant [be] not with day and night, [and if] I have not appointed the ordinances of heaven and earth; Then will I cast away the seed of Jacob, and David my servant, [so] that I will not take [any] of his seed [to be] rulers over the seed of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob
I will cause their captivity to return, and have mercy on them.

He shall gather them as the sheaves into the floor.
I will gather them that are sorrowful for the solemn assembly.
I will undo all that afflict thee: and I will save her that halteth, and gather her that was driven out; and I will get them praise and fame in every land where they have been put to shame.
At that time will I bring you again, even in the time that I gather you: for I will make you a name and a praise among all people of the earth, when I turn back your captivity before your eyes.
Although I have cast them far off among the heathen, and although I have scattered them among the countries, yet will I be to them as a little sanctuary in the countries where they shall come.
I will even gather you from the people, and assemble you out of the countries.
I will give you the land of Israel.

I will make them(priests who shamefully can't go into the holy place anymore) keepers of the charge of the house.
In the day that I shall have cleansed you from all your iniquities I will also cause you to dwell in the cities.
I the LORD build the ruined places, and plant that that was desolate: I the LORD have spoken it, and I will do it.
I will yet for this be enquired of by the house of Israel, to do it for them; I will increase them with men like a flock.
I will take the stick of Joseph, and will put them with (the stick of Judah) and they shall be one in mine hand.

I will also cast off all the seed of Israel for all that they have done (If heaven above can be measured, and the foundations of the earth searched out beneath)
Returned after captivity:
Build the house(temple after captivity); and I will take pleasure in it, and I will be glorified.
I called for a drought upon the land.(because temple is wasted) I smote you with blasting and with mildew and with hail.
The silver is mine, and the gold is mine. (The latter temple will be more glorious than Solomon’s gold temple)
In this place will I give peace. From this day will I bless you.
Will I take thee, O Zerubbabel, my servant..and will make thee as a signet: for I have chosen thee.
I am with you, I covenanted with you when ye came out of Egypt, so my spirit remaineth among you.
