19 People in those places will sing songs of praise.
    There will be the sound of laughter.
I will give them many children
    so their number will not be small.
I will bring honor to them
    so no one will look down on them.
20 Their descendants will be as they were in the old days.
    I will set them up as a strong people before me,
and I will punish the nations who have hurt them.
21 One of their own people will lead them;
    their ruler will come from among them.
He will come near to me when I invite him.
    Who would dare to come to me uninvited?” says the Lord.
