On that day I will raise upthe booth of David that is fallen,and repair its breaches,and raise up its ruins,and rebuild it as in the days of old;in order that they may possess the remnant of Edomand all the nations who are called by my name,says the Lord who does this.The time is surely coming, says the Lord,when the one who plows shall overtake the one who reaps,and the treader of grapes the one who sows the seed;the mountains shall drip sweet wine,and all the hills shall flow with it.
