5 Arise, Jerusalem, stand on the heights and turn your eyes to the east: see your children reassembled from west and east at the Holy One's command, rejoicing because God has remembered.

6 Though they left you on foot driven by enemies, now God brings them back to you, carried gloriously, like a royal throne.

8 And the forests and every fragrant tree will provide shade for Israel, at God's command;

9 for God will guide Israel in joy by the light of his glory, with the mercy and saving justice which come from him. A copy of the letter which Jeremiah sent to those about to be led captive to Babylon by the king of the Babylonians, to tell them what he had been commanded by God:
