"Someday, O Israel, I will gather you; I will gather the remnant who are left. I will bring you together again like sheep in a pen, like a flock in its pasture. Yes, your land will again be filled with noisy crowds!

CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
2:12 Them - All the remnant. As the sheep - ln great numbers. Their fold - Their own fold, where they are safe.
