Psalms of Solomon 11:2
1 Sound in Zion the trumpet that summons the holy ones. Announce in Jerusalem the voice of one proclaiming good news: 'God has been merciful to Israel by his watchful care over them.' 2 Stand on a high place, O Jerusalem, and see your children from east to west finally brought together by the Lord. 3 From the north they come with the joy of their God; from far distant islands God brings them together. 4 He flattened high mountains into level ground for them, the hills fled at their coming. 5 The woods shaded them as they passed by; God made every fragrant tree to spring up for them 6 that Israel might pass by in the watchful care of the glory of their God.
10 When Jesus heard this he was amazed and said to those who followed him, “I tell you the truth, I have not found such faith in anyone in Israel! 11 I tell you, many will come from the east and west to share the banquet with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven, 12 but the sons of the kingdom will be thrown out into the outer darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.” 13 Then Jesus said to the centurion, “Go; just as you believed, it will be done for you.” And the servant was healed at that hour.
