who carries out the words of his servants and fulfills the predictions of his messengers, who says of Jerusalem, 'It shall be inhabited,' of the towns of Judah, 'They shall be rebuilt,' and of their ruins, 'I will restore them,'
But on Mount Zion will be deliverance; it will be holy, and Jacob will possess his inheritance.
