10:6 “I (says the Lord) will strengthen the kingdom 1 of Judah and deliver the people of Joseph 2 and will bring them back 3 because of my compassion for them. They will be as though I had never rejected them, for I am the Lord their God and therefore I will hear them.
10:10 I will bring them back from Egypt and gather them from Assyria. 4 I will bring them to the lands of Gilead and Lebanon, for there will not be enough room for them in their own land.
1 tn Heb “the house.”
2 tn Or “the kingdom of Israel”; Heb “the house of Joseph.”
4 sn I will bring them back from Egypt…from Assyria. The gathering of God’s people to their land in eschatological times will be like a reenactment of the exodus, but this time they will come from all over the world (cf. Isa 40:3-5; 43:1-7, 14-21; 48:20-22; 51:9-11).
