11-13“And you, because of my blood covenant with you,I’ll release your prisoners from their hopeless cells.Come home, hope-filled prisoners!This very day I’m declaring a double bonus—everything you lost returned twice-over!Judah is now my weapon, the bow I’ll pull,setting Ephraim as an arrow to the string.I’ll wake up your sons, O Zion,to counter your sons, O Greece.From now onpeople are my swords.”
