13 Yes, days are coming—
    oracle of the Lord
When the one who plows shall overtake the one who reaps
    and the vintager, the sower of the seed;
The mountains shall drip with the juice of grapes,
    and all the hills shall run with it.(A)
14 I will restore my people Israel,
    they shall rebuild and inhabit their ruined cities,
Plant vineyards and drink[a] the wine,
    set out gardens and eat the fruits.(B)

Footnotes

  1. 9:14 Rebuild…inhabit…plant…drink: in this era of restoration, the Lord nullifies the curse of 5:11, which uses these same four verbs, and turns it into a blessing for Israel.
