Gardens

Therefore they shall come and sing in the height of Zion,
      Streaming to the goodness of the LORD—
      For wheat and new wine and oil,
      For the young of the flock and the herd; 

      
Their souls shall be like 
a well-watered garden,
      And they shall sorrow no more at all.
       “ Then shall the virgin rejoice in the dance,
      And the young men and the old, together;
      For I will turn their mourning to joy,
      Will comfort them,
      And make them rejoice rather than sorrow.
       I will satiate the soul of the priests with abundance,
      And My people shall be satisfied with My goodness, says the LORD.

Jeremiah 31:12-14
Behold, I will gather them out of all countries where I have driven them in My anger, in My fury, and in great wrath; I will bring them back to this place, and I will cause them to dwell safely. They shall be My people, and I will be their God; then I will give them one heart and one way, that they may fear Me forever, for the good of them and their children after them. And I will make an everlasting covenant with them, that I will not turn away from doing them good; but I will put My fear in their hearts so that they will not depart from Me. Yes, I will rejoice over them to do them good, and I will assuredly plant them in this land, with all My heart and with all My soul.’ 
Jeremiah 32:37-41
