Prophecy To The Mountains Of Israel And Of Israel's Restoration

2 So says the Lord Jehovah: Because the enemy has said against you, Aha! Even the old high places have become a possession to us. 3 Therefore prophesy and say, So says the Lord Jehovah: Because of the wasting and crushing of you from all around, that you might be a possession to the rest of the nations, and you were lifted up on the tip of the tongue, and the talking of the people; 4 so, mountains of Israel, hear the Word of the Lord Jehovah. So says the Lord Jehovah to the mountains, and to the hills, to the rivers, and to the valleys, to the deserted wastes, and to the cities that are forsaken, which became a prey and a mockery to the rest of the nations all around.
