In those days and at that time, when I restore the fortunes of Judah and Jerusalem,

我要聚集万民,带他们下到约沙法谷。在那里施行审判,因为他们将我的百姓,就是我的产业以色列,分散在列国中,又分取我的地土,

3:13
开镰吧。因为庄稼熟了。践踏吧。因为酒榨满了,酒池盈溢。他们的罪恶甚大。

耶和华必从锡安吼叫,从耶路撒冷发声。天地就震动。耶和华却要作他百姓的避难所,作以色列人的保障。
The Lord will roar from Zion and thunder from Jerusalem; the earth and the sky will tremble. But the Lord will be a refuge for his people, a stronghold for the people of Israel.
3:17
你们就知道我是耶和华你们的神,且又住在锡安我的圣山。那时,耶路撒冷必成为圣,外邦人不再从其中经过。
Then you will know that I, the Lord your God, dwell in Zion, my holy hill. Jerusalem will be holy; never again will foreigners invade her.

Judah will be inhabited forever and Jerusalem through all generations.

我未曾报复(或作洗除下同)流血的罪,现在我要报复。因为耶和华住在锡安。
Their bloodguilt, which I have not pardoned, I will pardon." The Lord dwells in Zion!
