Isaiah 49:20-22


49:20 Yet the children born during your time of bereavement

will say within your hearing,

‘This place is too cramped for us, 1 

make room for us so we can live here.’ 2 

49:21 Then you will think to yourself, 3 

‘Who bore these children for me?

I was bereaved and barren,

dismissed and divorced. 4 

Who raised these children?

Look, I was left all alone;

where did these children come from?’”

49:22 This is what the sovereign Lord says:

“Look I will raise my hand to the nations;

I will raise my signal flag to the peoples.

They will bring your sons in their arms

and carry your daughters on their shoulders.
