Av 9, 5776

Drawing by Stephen Prophater

"Israel is like scattered sheep;
the lions have driven him away.
First the king of Assyria devoured him;
now at last
this Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon
has broken his bones."
Therefore thus says the LORD of hosts,
the God of Israel:
"Behold, I will punish the king of Babylon
and his land,
as I have punished the king of Assyria.
But I will bring back Israel to his home,
and he shall feed on Carmel and Bashan;
his soul shall be satisfied
on Mount Ephraim and Gilead."
Jeremiah 50:17-19
