16 And the Gentiles will fear your name, O Lord, and all the kings of the earth your glory.
17 For the Lord has built up Zion, and he will be seen in his glory.
18 He has noticed of the prayer of the humble, and he has not despised their petition.
19 Let these things be written in another generation, and the people who will be created will praise the Lord.
20 For he has gazed from his high sanctuary. From heaven, the Lord has beheld the earth.
21 So may he hear the groans of those in shackles, in order that he may release the sons of the slain.
22 So may they announce the name of the Lord in Zion and his praise in Jerusalem:
23 while the people convene, along with kings, in order that they may serve the Lord.
1 And the word of the Lord of hosts came, saying:
2 Thus says the Lord of hosts: I have been zealous for Zion with a great zeal, and with a great indignation have I been zealous for her.
3 Thus says the Lord of hosts: I have been turned back towards Zion, and I will dwell in the midst of Jerusalem. And Jerusalem will be called: "The City of Truth," and "The Mountain of the Lord of Hosts, the Sanctified Mountain."
4 Thus says the Lord of hosts: Then elderly men and elderly women will dwell in the streets of Jerusalem, and every man will be with his walking stick in his hand, because of the multitude of days.
5 And the streets of the city will be filled with toddlers and children, playing in its streets.
6 Thus says the Lord of hosts: If it seems difficult in the eyes of the remnant of this people in those days, could it indeed be difficult in my eyes, says the Lord of hosts?
7 Thus says the Lord of hosts: Behold, I will save my people from the land of the East, and from the land of the setting of the sun.
8 And I will lead them, and they will dwell in the midst of Jerusalem. And they will be my people, and I will be their God, in truth and in justice.
