The survivors (Ezek 14:22-14:23)

“‘Yet,

Survivors

Shall be left

In Jerusalem.

Sons,

With Daughters,

Will be brought out.

They will come out

To you.

When you see

Their ways,

When you see

Their deeds,

You will be consoled.

I have brought

Evil

Upon Jerusalem.

I have brought

All upon it.

They shall console you,

When you see

Their ways,

When you see

Their deeds.

You shall know

That it was not

Without cause

That I did

All that

I have done

In it.’

Says Yahweh God.”

Yahweh said that there would be survivors left in Jerusalem. Sons and daughters of Jerusalem would be brought out of there. They would come out to the earlier exiles. When they saw how the people of Jerusalem had acted in their ways and deeds, they would be consoled.   Jerusalem deserved the evil that came upon them. Yahweh sent it to them because he had reason to do so, since this was not a random action.
