Read Jeremiah 33:22 Using Other Translations

As the host of heaven cannot be numbered, neither the sand of the sea measured: so will I multiply the seed of David my servant, and the Levites that minister unto me.
As the host of heaven cannot be numbered and the sands of the sea cannot be measured, so I will multiply the offspring of David my servant, and the Levitical priests who minister to me."
And as the stars of the sky cannot be counted and the sand on the seashore cannot be measured, so I will multiply the descendants of my servant David and the Levites who minister before me.”

What does Jeremiah 33:22 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Jeremiah 33:22

As the host of heaven cannot be numbered, neither the sand of
the sea measured
As the stars of heaven are innumerable, and the sand of the sea immeasurable: so will I multiply the seed of David my servant;
the Messiah; the son and antitype of David; and who is often called by his name; and as the son of David is the servant of the Lord, his spiritual seed are meant, which shall endure for ever; and in Gospel times, especially in the latter part of them, shall be very numerous; see ( Psalms 89:29 Psalms 89:36 ) ; and the Levites that minister unto me;
meaning the same as before; not ministers of the Gospel, for they never were, or will be, so numerous as here expressed; but true believers in Christ, who are all priests unto God, and minister in holy things, offering up the spiritual sacrifices of prayer and praise through Christ: these Levites are the same with the seed of David, or Christ, in whom the kingdom and the priesthood are united.
