Moreover, thou son of man, takethee one stick, and writeupon it, For Judah, and for the children of Israel his companions: thentakeanotherstick, and writeupon it, For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim, and for all the house of Israel his companions:
Say untothem, Thussaith the Lord GOD; Behold, I willtake the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes of Israel his fellows, and will put themwith him, evenwith the stick of Judah, and makethem one stick, and theyshall be one in minehand.
And I willmakethem one nation in the landupon the mountains of Israel; and one kingshall be king to them all: and theyshall be no more two nations, neithershallthey be dividedinto two kingdoms any more at all:
Neithershalltheydefilethemselves any morewiththeiridols, nor withtheirdetestablethings, nor with any of theirtransgressions: but I willsavethem out of all theirdwellingplaces, whereintheyhavesinned, and willcleansethem: so shallthey be my people, and I will be their God.
And theyshalldwell in the landthat I havegivenuntoJacob my servant, whereinyourfathershavedwelt; and theyshalldwelltherein, eventhey, and theirchildren, and theirchildren’schildren for ever: and my servantDavidshall be theirprince for ever.
