they all gather, they come to you.
As I live, declares the Lord,
you shall put them all on as an ornament;
you shall bind them on as a bride does. (verses 15-18)

- You are engraved on the palms of my hands. Have you noticed that your hands are continually out in front of your sight?
- You don't see what I see. He has a plan.
- You will look as glorious as a gilded, ornamented bride. Have you noticed that a happy bride is the most radiant person on earth? That's how Israelites will become, radiating God's glory.
