And the word of the Lord came to Jeremias the second time, while he was yet shut up in the court of the prison, saying:
Thus saith the Lord, who will do, and will form it, and prepare it, the Lord is his name.
Cry to me and I will hear thee: and I will shew thee great things, and sure things which thou knowest not.
For thus saith the Lord the God of Israel to the houses of this city, and to the houses of the king of Juda, which are destroyed, and to the bulwarks, and to the sword.
Of them that come to fight with the Chaldeans, and to fill them with the dead bodies of the men whom I have slain in my wrath, and in my indignation, hiding my face from this city because of all their wickedness.
Behold I will close their wounds and give them health, and I will cure them: and I will reveal to them the prayer of peace and truth.
