"He will cry to Me, 'You are my Father, My God, and the rock of my salvation.'
Then they despised the pleasant land; They did not believe in His word,
For You are our Father, though Abraham does not know us And Israel does not recognize us. You, O LORD, are our Father, Our Redeemer from of old is Your name.
"Have you not just now called to Me, 'My Father, You are the friend of my youth?
"At that time they will call Jerusalem 'The Throne of the LORD,' and all the nations will be gathered to it, to Jerusalem, for the name of the LORD; nor will they walk anymore after the stubbornness of their evil heart.
