Final Restoration Promised

For I will then restore
pure(A) speech to the peoples
so that all of them may call
on the name of Yahweh
and serve Him with a single purpose.[a]
10 From beyond the rivers of Cush(B)
My supplicants, My dispersed people,
will bring an offering to Me.
11 On that day you[b] will not be put to shame(C)
because of everything you have done
in rebelling(D) against Me.
For then I will remove
your proud,(E) arrogant people from among you,
and you will never again be haughty
on My holy mountain.(F)
