36:1 Also, thou Ben Adam, prophesy unto the mountains of Yisrael, and say, Ye mountains of Yisrael,
Shema Dvar YHWH (יהוה):
36:2 Thus saith Adonay (אדני) YHWH (יהוה):
Because the oyev (enemy) hath said against you, Aha, even the ancient high places are ours in possession:
36:3 Therefore prophesy and say,
Thus saith Adonay (אדני) YHWH (יהוה):
Because they have made [you] desolate, and swallowed you up on every side, that ye might be a possession unto the residue of the Goyim, and ye are taken up in the lips of talkers, and [are] slandered by the people:
36:4 Therefore, ye mountains of Yisrael,
Shema Dvar Adonay (אדני) YHWH (יהוה):
Thus saith Adonay (אדני) YHWH (יהוה) to the mountains, and to the hills, to the rivers, and to the valleys, to the desolate wastes, and to the cities that are forsaken, which became a prey and derision to the residue of the Goyim that [are] round about;
36:5 Therefore thus saith Adonay (אדני) YHWH (יהוה):
Surely in the fire of My jealousy have I spoken against the residue of the Goyim, and against all Edom, which have appointed My land into their possession with the joy of all [their] heart, with despiteful minds, to cast it out for a prey.
36:6 Prophesy therefore concerning the eretz Yisrael, and say unto the mountains, and to the hills, to the rivers, and to the valleys,
Thus saith Adonay (אדני) YHWH (יהוה);
Hinnei, I have spoken in My jealousy and in My fury, because ye have borne the shame of the Goyim:
36:7 Therefore thus saith Adonay (אדני) YHWH (יהוה):
I have lifted up mine hand, Surely the Goyim that [are] about you, they shall bear their shame.
36:8 But ye, O mountains of Yisrael, ye shall shoot forth your branches, and yield your fruit to My people of Yisrael; for they are at hand to come.
36:9 For, Hinnei, I [am] for you, and I will turn unto you, and ye shall be tilled and sown:
36:10 And I will multiply men upon you, all Beit Yisrael, [even] all of it: and the cities shall be inhabited, and the wastes shall be builded:
36:11 And I will multiply upon you man and beast; and they shall increase and bring fruit: and I will settle you after your old estates, and will do better [unto you] than at your beginnings: and ye shall know that Ani YHWH (יהוה).
36:12 Yea, I will cause men to walk upon you, [even] My people Yisrael; and they shall possess thee, and thou shalt be their inheritance, and thou shalt no more henceforth bereave them [of men].
36:13 Thus saith Adonay (אדני) YHWH (יהוה);
Because they say unto you, Thou [land] devourest up men, and hast bereaved thy nations;
36:14 Therefore thou shalt devour men no more, neither bereave thy nations any more, saith Adonay (אדני) YHWH (יהוה).
36:15 Neither will I cause [men] to hear in thee the shame of the Goyim any more, neither shalt thou bear the reproach of the people any more, neither shalt thou cause thy nations to fall any more, saith Adonay (אדני) YHWH (יהוה).
36:16 Moreover Dvar YHWH (יהוה) came unto me saying:
36:17 Ben Adam, when Beit Yisrael dwelt in their own land, they defiled it by their own way and by their doings: their way was before me as the uncleanness of a removed woman.
36:18 Wherefore I poured My fury upon them for the blood that they had shed upon the land, and for their gillulim (idols) [wherewith] they had polluted it:
36:19 And I scattered them among the Goyim, and they were dispersed through the countries: according to their way and according to their doings I judged them.
36:20 And when they entered unto the Goyim, whither they went, they profaned My Set Apart Name, when they said to them, These [are] the people of YHWH (יהוה), and are gone forth out of his land.
36:21 But I had pity for My Set Apart Name, which Beit Yisrael had profaned among the Goyim, whither they went.
36:22 Therefore say unto Beit Yisrael,
Thus saith Adonay (אדני) YHWH (יהוה);
I do not [this] for your sakes, O Beit Yisrael, but for My Set Apart Name's sake, which ye have profaned among the Goyim, whither ye went.
36:23 And I will sanctify My great Name, which was profaned among the Goyim, which ye have profaned in the midst of them; and the Goyim shall know that Ani YHWH (יהוה), saith Adonay (אדני) YHWH (יהוה), when I shall be sanctified in you before their eyes.
36:24 For I will take you from among the Goyim, and gather you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land.
36:25 Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your gillulim (idols), will I cleanse you.
36:26 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.
36:27 And I will put My Spirit within you, and cause you to walk in My statutes, and ye shall keep My shofatim, and do [them].
36:28 And ye shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; and ye shall be My people, and I will be your Elohim (אלהים).
36:29 I will also save you from all your uncleannesses: and I will call for the corn, and will increase it, and lay no famine upon you.
36:30 And I will multiply the fruit of the tree, and the increase of the field, that ye shall receive no more reproach of famine among the Goyim.
36:31 Then shall ye remember your own evil ways, and your doings that [were] not good, and shall lothe yourselves in your own sight for your iniquities and for your abominations.
36:32 Not for your sakes do I [this], saith Adonay (אדני) YHWH (יהוה), be it known unto you: be ashamed and confounded for your own ways, O Beit Yisrael.
36:33 Thus saith Adonay (אדני) YHWH (יהוה);
In the day that I shall have cleansed you from all your iniquities I will also cause [you] to dwell in the cities, and the wastes shall be builded.
36:34 And the desolate land shall be tilled, whereas it lay desolate in the sight of all that passed by.
36:35 And they shall say, This land that was desolate is become like the garden of Eden; and the waste and desolate and ruined cities [are become] fenced, [and] are inhabited.
36:36 Then the Goyim that are left round about you shall know that I YHWH (יהוה) build the ruined [places, and] plant that that was desolate: I YHWH (יהוה) have spoken [it], and I will do [it].
36:37 Thus saith Adonay (אדני) YHWH (יהוה):
I will yet [for] this be enquired of by Beit Yisrael, to do [it] for them; I will increase them with men like a flock.
36:38 As the Set apart flock, as the flock of Yerushalayim in her solemn feasts; so shall the waste cities be filled with flocks of men: and they shall know that Ani YHWH (יהוה).
