Jeremiah 31
New International Version
31"At that time," declares the LORD, "I will be the God of all the clans of Israel, and they will be my people."H6256H5002H3068H430H4940H3478H5971 2This is what the LORD says: "The people who survive the sword will find favor in the desert; I will come to give rest to Israel."H559H3068H5971H8300H2719H4672H2580H4057H3478H1980H7280 3The LORD appeared to us in the past, saying: "I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with loving-kindness.H3068H7200H7350H157H5769H160H2617H4900 4I will build you up again and you will be rebuilt, O Virgin Israel. Again you will take up your tambourines and go out to dance with the joyful.H1129H1129H1330H3478H5710H8596H3318H4234H7832 5Again you will plant vineyards on the hills of Samaria; the farmers will plant them and enjoy their fruit.H5193H3754H2022H8111H5193H5193H2490 6There will be a day when watchmen cry out on the hills of Ephraim, 'Come, let us go up to Zion, to the LORD our God.'"H3426H3117H5341H2022H669H7121H6965H5927H6726H3068H430 7This is what the LORD says: "Sing with joy for Jacob; shout for the foremost of the nations. Make your praises heard, and say, 'O LORD, save your people, the remnant of Israel.'H559H3068H7442H8057H3290H6670H7218H1471H8085H1984H559H3068H3467H5971H7611H3478 8See, I will bring them from the land of the north and gather them from the ends of the earth. Among them will be the blind and the lame, expectant mothers and women in labor; a great throng will return.H935H6828H776H6908H3411H776H5787H6455H2030H3205H3162H1419H6951H7725 9They will come with weeping; they will pray as I bring them back. I will lead them beside streams of water on a level path where they will not stumble, because I am Israel's father, and Ephraim is my firstborn son.H935H1065H8469H2986H3212H5158H4325H3477H1870H3782H1H3478H669H1060 10"Hear the word of the LORD, O nations; proclaim it in distant coastlands: 'He who scattered Israel will gather them and will watch over his flock like a shepherd.'H8085H1697H3068H1471H5046H339H4801H559H2219H3478H6908H8104H7462H5739 11For the LORD will ransom Jacob and redeem them from the hand of those stronger than they.H3068H6299H3290H1350H3027H2389 12They will come and shout for joy on the heights of Zion; they will rejoice in the bounty of the LORD—the grain, the new wine and the oil, the young of the flocks and herds. They will be like a well-watered garden, and they will sorrow no more.H935H7442H4791H6726H5102H2898H3068H1715H8492H3323H1121H6629H1241H5315H7302H1588H1669H3254 13Then maidens will dance and be glad, young men and old as well. I will turn their mourning into gladness; I will give them comfort and joy instead of sorrow.H1330H8055H4234H970H2205H3162H2015H60H8342H5162H8055H3015 14I will satisfy the priests with abundance, and my people will be filled with my bounty," declares the LORD.H7301H5315H3548H1880H5971H7646H2898H5002H3068 15This is what the LORD says: "A voice is heard in Ramah, mourning and great weeping, Rachel weeping for her children and refusing to be comforted, because her children are no more."H559H3068H6963H8085H7414H5092H8563H1065H7354H1058H1121H3985H5162H1121 16This is what the LORD says: "Restrain your voice from weeping and your eyes from tears, for your work will be rewarded," declares the LORD. "They will return from the land of the enemy.H559H3068H4513H6963H1065H5869H1832H6468H3426H7939H5002H3068H7725H776H341 17So there is hope for your future," declares the LORD. "Your children will return to their own land.H3426H8615H319H5002H3068H1121H7725H1366 18"I have surely heard Ephraim's moaning: 'You disciplined me like an unruly calf, and I have been disciplined. Restore me, and I will return, because you are the LORD my God.H8085H8085H669H5110H3256H3256H5695H3808H3925H7725H7725H3068H430 19After I strayed, I repented; after I came to understand, I beat my breast. I was ashamed and humiliated because I bore the disgrace of my youth.'H310H7725H5162H310H3045H5606H3409H954H3637H5375H2781H5271 20Is not Ephraim my dear son, the child in whom I delight? Though I often speak against him, I still remember him. Therefore my heart yearns for him; I have great compassion for him," declares the LORD.H669H3357H1121H8191H3206H1767H1696H2142H2142H4578H1993H7355H7355H5002H3068 21"Set up road signs; put up guideposts. Take note of the highway, the road that you take. Return, O Virgin Israel, return to your towns.H5324H6725H7760H8564H7896H3820H4546H1870H1980H7725H1330H3478H7725H5892 22How long will you wander, O unfaithful daughter? The LORD will create a new thing on earth—a woman will surround a man."H2559H7728H1323H3068H1254H2319H776H5347H5437H1397 23This is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says: "When I bring them back from captivity, the people in the land of Judah and in its towns will once again use these words: 'The LORD bless you, O righteous dwelling, O sacred mountain.'H559H3068H6635H430H3478H559H1697H776H3063H5892H7725H7622H3068H1288H5116H6664H2022H6944 24People will live together in Judah and all its towns—farmers and those who move about with their flocks.H3427H3063H5892H3162H406H5265H5739 25I will refresh the weary and satisfy the faint."H7301H5889H5315H4390H1669H5315 26At this I awoke and looked around. My sleep had been pleasant to me.H6974H7200H8142H6149 27"The days are coming," declares the LORD, "when I will plant the house of Israel and the house of Judah with the offspring of men and of animals.H3117H935H5002H3068H2232H1004H3478H1004H3063H2233H120H2233H929 28Just as I watched over them to uproot and tear down, and to overthrow, destroy and bring disaster, so I will watch over them to build and to plant," declares the LORD.H8245H5428H5422H2040H6H7489H8245H1129H5193H5002H3068 29"In those days people will no longer say, 'The fathers have eaten sour grapes, and the children's teeth are set on edge.'H3117H559H1H398H1155H1121H8127H6949 30Instead, everyone will die for his own sin; whoever eats sour grapes—his own teeth will be set on edge.H376H4191H5771H120H398H1155H8127H6949 31"The time is coming," declares the LORD, "when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah.H3117H935H5002H3068H3772H2319H1285H1004H3478H1004H3063 32It will not be like the covenant I made with their forefathers when I took them by the hand to lead them out of Egypt, because they broke my covenant, though I was a husband to them," declares the LORD.H1285H3772H1H3117H2388H3027H3318H776H4714H1285H6565H1166H5002H3068 33"This is the covenant I will make with the house of Israel after that time," declares the LORD. "I will put my law in their minds and write it on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people.H1285H3772H1004H3478H310H3117H5002H3068H5414H8451H7130H3789H3820H430H5971 34No longer will a man teach his neighbor, or a man his brother, saying, 'Know the LORD,' because they will all know me, from the least of them to the greatest," declares the LORD. "For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more."H3925H376H7453H376H251H559H3045H3068H3045H6996H1419H5002H3068H5545H5771H2142H2403 35This is what the LORD says, he who appoints the sun to shine by day, who decrees the moon and stars to shine by night, who stirs up the sea so that its waves roar—the LORD Almighty is his name:H559H3068H5414H8121H216H3119H2708H3394H3556H216H3915H7280H3220H1530H1993H3068H6635H8034 36"Only if these decrees vanish from my sight," declares the LORD, "will the descendants of Israel ever cease to be a nation before me."H2706H4185H6440H5002H3068H2233H3478H7673H1471H6440H3117 37This is what the LORD says: "Only if the heavens above can be measured and the foundations of the earth below be searched out will I reject all the descendants of Israel because of all they have done," declares the LORD.H559H3068H8064H4605H4058H4146H776H2713H4295H3988H2233H3478H6213H5002H3068 38"The days are coming," declares the LORD, "when this city will be rebuilt for me from the Tower of Hananel to the Corner Gate.H3117H935H5002H3068H5892H1129H3068H4026H2606H8179H6438 39The measuring line will stretch from there straight to the hill of Gareb and then turn to Goah.H4060H6957H6961H3318H1389H1619H5437H1601 40The whole valley where dead bodies and ashes are thrown, and all the terraces out to the Kidron Valley on the east as far as the corner of the Horse Gate, will be holy to the LORD. The city will never again be uprooted or demolished."H6010H6297H1880H7709H8309H5158H6939H6438H5483H8179H4217H6944H3068H5428H2040H5769
