Jeremiah 301The word that came to Jeremiah from the Lord, saying, 2Thus says the Lord God of Israel: Write all the words which I have spoken to you in a book. 3For behold, the days are coming, says the Lord, when I will bring back the captivity of My people Israel and Judah; and I will bring them back to the land which I gave to their fathers, and they shall be masters over it, says the Lord. 4And these are the words which the Lord spoke concerning Israel and Judah: 5Thus said the Lord: You shall hear a sound of fear-fear, and not peace. 6Ask, and see if a male has ever born a child? And ask concerning the fear, why they shall hold their loins, and look for safety; for I have seen every man, and his hands are on his loins; their faces are turned to paleness. 7For that day is great, and there is none like it; and it is a time of Jacob's trouble, but he shall be saved out of it. 8In that day, said the Lord, I will break the yoke off their neck, and will burst their bonds, and they shall no longer serve strangers. 9But they shall serve the Lord their God; and I will raise up to them David their king. 12Thus says the Lord: I have brought on you destruction. Your stroke is painful. 13There is none to judge your cause; you have been painfully treated for healing, there is no help for you. 14All your friends have forgotten you; they shall not ask about you at all, for I have smitten you with the stroke of the enemy, even severe correction. Your sins have abounded above all your iniquity. 15Your sins have abounded beyond the multitude of your iniquities, therefore they have done these things to you. 16Therefore all that devour you shall be eaten, and all your enemies shall eat all their own flesh. And they that spoil you shall become a spoil, and I will give up to be plundered all that have plundered you. 17For I will bring about your healing, I will heal you of your grievous wound, says the Lord; for you are called Dispersed: she is your prey, for no one seeks after her. 18Thus said the Lord: Behold, I will turn the captivity of Jacob, and will have pity upon his prisoners; and the city shall be built upon her hill, and the people shall settle after their manner. 19And there shall go forth from them singers, even the sound of men making merry, and I will multiply them, and they shall by no means be diminished. 20And their sons shall go in as before, and their testimonies shall be established before Me, and I will visit those that afflict them. 21And their mighty ones shall be over them, and their prince shall proceed of themselves; and I will gather them, and they shall return to Me; for who is this that has set his heart to return to Me? Says the Lord. 23For the wrathful anger of the Lord has gone forth, even a whirlwind of anger has gone forth: it shall come upon the ungodly. 24The fierce anger of the Lord shall not return, until He shall execute it, and until He shall establish the purpose of His heart. In the latter days you shall know these things.
