Gen 17:15 And Elohim said to Abraham, “As for Sarai your wife, do not call her name Sarai, for Sarah is her name. Gen 17:16 “And I shall bless her and also give you a son by her. And I shall bless her, and she shall become nations – sovereigns of peoples are to be from her.”
Jer 18:17  I shall scatter them as with an
east wind before the enemy...

Jer 23:2 Therefore thus said Yah, Elohim of Yisra’ĕl against the shepherds who feed My people, “You have scattered My flock, driven them away, and have not tended them. See, I am punishing you for the evil of your deeds,” declares Yah. Jer 23:3 “Therefore I shall gather the remnant of My flock out of all the lands where I have driven them, and shall bring them back to their fold. And they shall bear and increase. Jer 23:4 “And I shall raise up shepherds over them, and they shall feed them. And they shall fear no more, nor be discouraged, nor shall they be lacking,” declares Yah. Jer 23:5 “See, the days are coming,” declares Yah, “when I shall raise for David a Branch of righteousness, and a Sovereign shall reign and act wisely, and shall do right-ruling and righteousness in the earth. Jer 23:6 “In His days Yahudah shall be saved, and Yisra’ĕl dwell safely. And this is His Name whereby He shall be called: ‘Yah our Righteousness.’ Jer 23:7 “Therefore, see, the days are coming,” declares Yah, “when they shall say no more, ‘As Yah lives who brought up the children of Yisra’ĕl out of the land of Mitsrayim,’ Jer 23:8 but, ‘As Yah lives who brought up and led the seed of the house of Yisra’ĕl out of the land of the north and from all the lands where I had driven them.’ And they shall dwell on their own soil.”
