In the towns of Judah and the streets of Jerusalem that are deserted, inhabited neither by men nor animals, there will be heard once more the sounds of joy and gladness, the voices of bride and bridegroom, and the voices of those who bring thank offerings to the house of the Lord. – Jeremiah 33:10 - 11
