aclamai a first of Nations;
Sing, sing and say:
Save, señor, YOUR people,
The Rest of Israel`.
Behold, I will bring them unto you from the North, and I will gather them from as Ends of the earth. Among them are blind and crippled, pregnant and parturient women:
they are a great multitude who return.
They will arrive Between tears and I will receive them Between prayers. I will lead them by streams of water, by a Straight Path where they will not stumble; for I am become a father to Israel, Ephraim, and he is my firstborn. '
Word of the Lord.
