Deliverance from Captivity Promised

1 The word which came to Jeremiah from the LORD, saying, 2 "Thus says the LORD, the God of Israel, '1Write all the words which I have spoken to you in a book. 3 'For behold, 2days are coming,' declares the LORD, 'when I will 3restore the afortunes of My people 4Israel and Judah.' The LORD says, 'I will also 5bring them back to the land that I gave to their forefathers and they shall possess it.' " 4 Now these are the words which the LORD spoke concerning Israel and concerning Judah: 5 "For thus says the LORD, 'bI have heard a sound of 6terror, Of dread, and there is no peace. 6 'Ask now, and see If a male can give birth. Why do I see every man With his hands on his loins, 7as a woman in childbirth? And why have all faces turned pale? 7 'Alas! for that 8day is great, There is 9none like it; And it is the time of Jacob's 10distress, But he will be 11saved from it. 8 'It shall come about on that day,' declares the LORD of hosts, 'that I will 12break his yoke from off ctheir neck and will tear off dtheir 13bonds; and strangers will no longer 14make ethem their slaves. 9 'But they shall serve the LORD their God and 15David their king, whom I will raise up for them. 10 '16Fear not, O Jacob My servant,' declares the LORD, 'And do not be dismayed, O Israel; For behold, I will save you 17from afar And your foffspring from the land of their captivity. And Jacob will return and will be 18quiet and at ease, And 19no one will make him afraid. 11 'For 20I am with you,' declares the LORD, 'to save you; For I will 21destroy completely all the nations where I have scattered you, Only I will 22not destroy you completely. But I will 23chasten you justly And will by no means leave you unpunished.' 12 "For thus says the LORD, 'Your wound is incurable And your 24injury is serious. 13 'There is no one to plead your cause; No healing for your sore, 25No recovery for you. 14 'All your 26lovers have forgotten you, They do not seek you; For I have 27wounded you with the wound of an enemy, With the 28punishment of a 29cruel one, Because your 30iniquity is great And your 31sins are numerous. 15 'Why do you cry out over your injury? Your pain is incurable. Because your iniquity is great And your sins are numerous, I have done these things to you. 16 'Therefore all who 32devour you will be devoured; And all your adversaries, every one of them, 33will go into captivity; And those who plunder you will be for plunder, And all who prey upon you I will give for prey. 17 'For I will grestore you to h34health And I will heal you of your wounds,' declares the LORD, 'Because they have called you an 35outcast, saying: "It is Zion; no one icares for her."'

Restoration of Jacob

18 "Thus says the LORD, 'Behold, I will 36restore the jfortunes of the tents of Jacob And 37have compassion on his dwelling places; And the 38city will be rebuilt on its ruin, And the 39palace will stand on its rightful place. 19 'From them will proceed 40thanksgiving And the voice of those who k41celebrate; And I will 42multiply them and they will not be diminished; I will also 43honor them and they will not be insignificant. 20 'lTheir children also will be as formerly, And mtheir congregation shall be 44established before Me; And I will punish all ntheir oppressors. 21 'oTheir 45leader shall be one of them, And ptheir ruler shall come forth from qtheir midst; And I will 46bring him near and he shall approach Me; For rwho would dare to risk his life to 47approach Me?' declares the LORD. 22 'You shall be 48My people, And I will be your God.' " 23 Behold, the 49tempest of the LORD! Wrath has gone forth, A ssweeping tempest; It will burst on the head of the wicked. 24 The 50fierce anger of the LORD will not turn back Until He has performed and until He has accomplished The intent of His heart; In the 51latter days you will understand this.
