If I announce that a certain nation or kingdom is to be uprooted, torn down, and destroyed,
And if I announce that I will plant and build up a certain nation or kingdom,
I will watch over and care for them, and I will bring them back here again. I will build them up and not tear them down. I will plant them and not uproot them.
