"O storm-battered city, troubled and desolate! I will rebuild you with precious jewels and make your foundations from lapis lazuli.
Violence will disappear from your land; the desolation and destruction of war will end. Salvation will surround you like city walls, and praise will be on the lips of all who enter there.
"Who will feel sorry for you, Jerusalem? Who will weep for you? Who will even bother to ask how you are?
And I will send war, famine, and disease until they have vanished from the land of Israel, which I gave to them and their ancestors."
