Jeremiah 30:2-12 NLT

2 “This is what the LORD , the God of Israel, says: Write down for the record everything I have said to you, Jeremiah.
3 For the time is coming when I will restore the fortunes of my people of Israel and Judah. I will bring them home to this land that I gave to their ancestors, and they will possess it again. I, the LORD , have spoken!”
4 This is the message the LORD gave concerning Israel and Judah.
5 This is what the LORD says: “I hear cries of fear; there is terror and no peace.
6 Now let me ask you a question: Do men give birth to babies? Then why do they stand there, ashen-faced, hands pressed against their sides like a woman in labor?
7 In all history there has never been such a time of terror. It will be a time of trouble for my people Israel.a Yet in the end they will be saved!
