13 And now the words which I shall read, are they which Isaiah spake concerning all the house of Israel;

14 Wherefore, they may be likened unto you; for ye are of the house of Israel.

15 And there are many things which have been spoken by Isaiah, which may be likened unto you, because ye are of the house of Israel.

16 And now, these are the words:

17 Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I will lift up mine hand to the Gentiles, and set up my standard to the people;

18 And they shall bring thy sons in their arms, and thy daughters shall be carried upon their shoulders.

19 And kings shall be thy nursing fathers, and their queens thy nursing mothers:

20 They shall bow down to thee with their faces towards the earth, and lick up the dust of thy feet;

21 And thou shalt know that I am the Lord: for they shall not be ashamed that wait for me.

22 And now I, Jacob, would speak somewhat concerning these words: For behold, the Lord has shewn me that those who were at Jerusalem, from whence we came, have been slain and carried away captive;

23 Nevertheless, the Lord has shewn unto me that they should return again.
