The word of ADONAI came to Yirmeyahu a second time while he was still imprisoned in the guards' quarters:
"Thus says ADONAI the maker, ADONAI who formed [the universe] so as to keep directing it ADONAI is his name:
'Call out to me, and I will answer you I will tell you great things, hidden things of which you are unaware.'"
For here is what ADONAI the God of Isra'el says concerning the houses of this city and the palaces of the kings of Y'hudah which are about to be destroyed and used as siege-works and ramparts,
where they will come to fight the Kasdim: "These places will eventually be filled with the corpses of people whom I am striking down in my anger and fury, everyone whose wickedness has caused me to hide my face from this city.
However, I will bring it health and healing; I will heal them and reveal to them peace and truth in plenty.
I will cause the captives of Y'hudah and the captives of Isra'el to return; and I will build them up as I did at first.
