Siehe, ich will viel Fischer aussenden, spricht der Herr, die sollen sie fischen. Und darnach will ich viel Jäger aussenden, die sollen sie fahen auf allen Bergen und allen Hügeln und in allen Steinritzen.
Behold, I will send out many fishers, says the Lord, which shall angle for them. And afterwards I will send out many hunters, who shall pursue them upon all the mountains and all the hills and in all the rocky crevices.
