11 Thus says the Lord,
The Holy One of Israel, and his Maker:
(A)“Ask Me of things to come concerning (B)My sons;
And concerning (C)the work of My hands, you command Me.

20 (A)The children you will have,
(B)After you have lost the others,
Will say again in your ears,
‘The place is too small for me;
Give me a place where I may dwell.’
21 Then you will say in your heart,
‘Who has begotten these for me,
Since I have lost my children and am desolate,
A captive, and wandering to and fro?
And who has brought these up?
There I was, left alone;
But these, where were they?’ ”

22 (C)Thus says the Lord God:

“Behold, I will lift My hand in an oath to the nations,
And set up My [a]standard for the peoples;
They shall bring your sons in their [b]arms,
And your daughters shall be carried on their shoulders;
23 (D)Kings shall be your foster fathers,
And their queens your nursing mothers;
They shall bow down to you with their faces to the earth,
And (E)lick up the dust of your feet.
Then you will know that I am the Lord,
(F)For they shall not be ashamed who wait for Me.”

24 (G)Shall the prey be taken from the mighty,
Or the captives [c]of the righteous be delivered?

25 But thus says the Lord:

“Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away,
And the prey of the terrible be delivered;
For I will contend with him who contends with you,
And I will save your children.
26 I will (H)feed those who oppress you with their own flesh,
And they shall be drunk with their own (I)blood as with sweet wine.
All flesh (J)shall know
That I, the Lord, am your Savior,
And your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob.”
