14 This is what the Lord says: “As for all my wicked neighbors who
seize the inheritance I gave my people Israel, I will uproot them
from their lands and I will uproot the house of
Judah from among them.
15 But after I uproot them, I will again have compassion
and will bring each of them back to his
own inheritance and his own country.
16 And if they learn well the ways of my people
and swear by my name, saying, ‘As surely as the Lord lives’ —
even as they once taught my people to swear by Baal —
then they will be established among my people.
17 But if any nation does not listen, I will completely
uproot and destroy it,” declares
