Blessings for God’s people

17“Then you will know(A) that I, the Lord your God,(B)

    dwell in Zion,(C) my holy hill.(D)
Jerusalem will be holy;(E)
    never again will foreigners invade her.(F)

18 “In that day the mountains will drip new wine,(G)
    and the hills will flow with milk;(H)
    all the ravines of Judah will run with water.(I)
A fountain will flow out of the Lord’s house(J)
    and will water the valley of acacias.[a](K)
19 But Egypt(L) will be desolate,
    Edom(M) a desert waste,
because of violence(N) done to the people of Judah,
    in whose land they shed innocent blood.
20 Judah will be inhabited forever(O)
    and Jerusalem through all generations.
21 Shall I leave their innocent blood unavenged?(P)
    No, I will not.(Q)
