12 zStand fast in your enchantments
and your many sorceries,
with which you have labored from your youth;
perhaps you may be able to succeed;
perhaps you may inspire terror.
2 “Go and proclaim in the hearing of Jerusalem, Thus says the Lord,
“I remember the devotion of kyour youth,
your love las a bride,
mhow you followed me in the wilderness,
nin a land not sown.
21 I spoke to you in your prosperity,
but you said, ‘I will not listen.’
that you have not obeyed my voice.
15 And there I will give her her vineyards
and make the Valley of Achor1 a door of hope.
And there she shall answer gas in the days of her youth,
as at the time when she came out of the land of Egypt.
