I’ll bring forth descendants from Jacob,
    and from Judah they[a] will inherit[b] my mountains;
my chosen people will inherit it,
    and my servants will live there.
10 Sharon will become a pasture for flocks,
    and the Valley of Achor a fold for herds,[c]
        for my people who have sought me.
11 But as for you who forsake the Lord,
    who forget my holy mountain,
who spread a table for Fortune[d]
    and[e] fill drink offerings[f] for Destiny,[g]
