The Scattered Tribes of Israel and the Promised Regathering and Return to the Promised Land in the Book of Baruch:

From The Book of Baruch In The Apocrypha

Baruch 2:27-35

[27] “`Yet thou hast dealt with us, O Lord our God, in all thy kindness and in all thy great compassion,
[28] as thou didst speak by thy servant Moses on the day when thou didst command him to write thy law in the presence of the people of Israel, saying,
[29] “If you will not obey my voice, this very great multitude will surely turn into a small number among the nations, where I will scatter them.
[30] For I know that they will not obey me, for they are a stiff-necked people. But in the land of their exile they will come to themselves,
[31] and they will know that I am the Lord their God. I will give them a heart that obeys and ears that hear;
[32] and they will praise me in the land of their exile, and will remember my name,
[33] and will turn from their stubbornness and their wicked deeds; for they will remember the ways of their fathers, who sinned before the Lord.
[34] I will bring them again into the land which I swore to give to their fathers, to Abraham and to Isaac and to Jacob, and they will rule over it; and I will increase them, and they will not be diminished.
[35] I will make an everlasting covenant with them to be their God and they shall be my people; and I will never again remove my people Israel from the land which I have given them.”

Baruch 3:8-12

8 Behold, we are today in our exile where thou hast scattered us, to be reproached and cursed and punished for all the iniquities of our fathers who forsook the Lord our God.'”
9 Hear the commandments of life, O Israel; give ear, and learn wisdom!
10 Why is it, O Israel, why is it that you are in the land of your enemies, that you are growing old in a foreign country, that you are defiled with the dead,
11 that you are counted among those in Hades?
12 You have forsaken the fountain of wisdom.

Baruch 4:25-29

My children, endure with patience the wrath that has come upon you from God. Your enemy has overtaken you, but you will soon see their destruction and will tread upon their necks. 26 My tender sons have traveled rough roads; they were taken away like a flock carried off by the enemy. 27 “Take courage, my children, and cry to God, for you will be remembered by him who brought this upon you. 28 For just as you purposed to go astray from God, return with tenfold zeal to seek him. 29 For he who brought these calamities upon you will bring you everlasting joy with your salvation.”

Baruch 4:36

36 Look toward the east, O Jerusalem, and see the joy that is coming to you from God! 37 Behold, your sons are coming, whom you sent away; they are coming, gathered from east and west, at the word of the Holy One, rejoicing in the glory of God.

Baruch 5:5-8

5 Arise, O Jerusalem, stand upon the height and look toward the east, and see your children gathered from west and east, at the word of the Holy One, rejoicing that God has remembered them. 6 For they went forth from you on foot, led away by their enemies; but God will bring them back to you, carried in glory, as on a royal throne. 7 For God has ordered that every high mountain and the everlasting hills be made low and the valleys filled up, to make level ground, so that Israel may walk safely in the glory of God. 8 The woods and every fragrant tree have shaded Israel at God’s command. 9 For God will lead Israel with joy, in the light of his glory, with the mercy and righteousness that come from him.

From the Assumption of Moses (otherwise known as The Testament of Moses)
Pseudepigrapha — William John Deane

Verse 4

And He will put it into the mind of a king to have compassion on them, and he shall send them off to their land and country. Then some portions of the tribes shall go up and they shall come to their appointed place, and they shall anew surround the place with walls. And the two tribes shall continue in their prescribed faith, sad and lamenting because they will not be able to offer sacrifices to the Lord of their fathers. And the ten tribes shall increase and multiply among the Gentiles during the time of their captivity.

Verse 10

For the Most High will arise, the Eternal God alone,

And He will appear to punish the Gentiles,

And He will destroy all their idols.

Then you, O Israel, shall be happy,

And you shall mount upon the necks and wings of the eagle,

And they shall be ended.

And God will exalt you,

And He will cause you to approach to the heaven of the stars,

In the place of their habitation.

And you will look from on high and see your enemies in Ge(henna)

And you shall recognize them and rejoice,

And you shall give thanks and confess thy Creator.
