Another Promise of Hope

33While I was still in prison in the courtyard, the LORD's message came to me again.H1697H3068H3414H8145H6113H2691H4307H559 2The LORD, who made the earth, who formed it and set it in place, spoke to me. He whose name is the LORD said,H559H3068H6213H3068H3335H3559H3068H8034 3"Call to me, and I will answer you; I will tell you wonderful and marvelous things that you know nothing about.H7121H6030H5046H1419H1219H3045 4I, the LORD, the God of Israel, say that the houses of Jerusalem and the royal palace of Judah will be torn down as a result of the siege and the attack.H559H3068H430H3478H1004H5892H1004H4428H3063H5422H5550H2719 5Some will fight against the Babylonians, who will fill the houses with the corpses of those whom I am going to strike down in my anger and fury. I have turned away from this city because of the evil things that its people have done.H935H3898H3778H4390H6297H120H5221H639H2534H7451H5641H6440H5892 6But I will heal this city and its people and restore them to health. I will show them abundant peace and security.H5927H724H4832H7495H1540H6283H7965H571 7I will make Judah and Israel prosperous, and I will rebuild them as they were before.H7622H3063H7622H3478H7725H1129H7223 8I will purify them from the sins that they have committed against me, and I will forgive their sins and their rebellion.H2891H5771H2398H5545H5771H2398H6586 9Jerusalem will be a source of joy, honor, and pride to me; and every nation in the world will fear and tremble when they hear about the good things that I do for the people of Jerusalem and about the prosperity that I bring to the city."H8034H8342H8416H8597H1471H776H8085H2896H6213H6342H7264H2896H7965H6213 10The LORD said, "People are saying that this place is like a desert, that it has no people or animals living in it. And they are right; the towns of Judah and the streets of Jerusalem are empty; no people or animals live there. But in these places you will hear againH559H3068H8085H4725H559H2720H120H929H5892H3063H2351H3389H8074H120H3427H929 11the shouts of gladness and joy and the happy sounds of wedding feasts. You will hear people sing as they bring thank offerings to my Temple; they will say, 'Give thanks to the LORD Almighty, because he is good and his love is eternal.' I will make this land as prosperous as it was before. I, the LORD, have spoken."H6963H8342H6963H8057H6963H2860H6963H3618H6963H559H3034H3068H6635H3068H2896H2617H5769H935H8426H1004H3068H7725H7622H776H7223H559H3068 12The LORD Almighty said, "In this land that is like a desert and where no people or animals live, there will once again be pastures where shepherds can take their sheep.H559H3068H6635H4725H2720H120H929H5892H5116H7462H6629H7257 13In the towns in the hill country, in the foothills, and in southern Judah, in the territory of Benjamin, in the villages around Jerusalem, and in the towns of Judah, shepherds will once again count their sheep. I, the LORD, have spoken."H5892H2022H5892H8219H5892H5045H776H1144H5439H3389H5892H3063H6629H5674H3027H4487H559H3068 14The LORD said, "The time is coming when I will fulfill the promise that I made to the people of Israel and Judah.H3117H935H5002H3068H6965H2896H1697H1696H1004H3478H1004H3063 15At that time I will choose as king a righteous descendant of David. That king will do what is right and just throughout the land.H3117H6256H6780H6666H6779H1732H6213H4941H6666H776 16The people of Judah and of Jerusalem will be rescued and will live in safety. The city will be called 'The LORD Our Salvation.'H3117H3063H3467H3389H7931H983H7121H3072 17I, the LORD, promise that there will always be a descendant of David to be king of IsraelH559H3068H1732H3808H3772H376H3427H3678H1004H3478 18and that there will always be priests from the tribe of Levi to serve me and to offer burnt offerings, grain offerings, and sacrifices."H3548H3881H3772H376H6440H5927H5930H6999H4503H6213H2077H3117 19The LORD said to me,H1697H3068H3414H559 20"I have made a covenant with the day and with the night, so that they always come at their proper times; and that covenant can never be broken.H559H3068H6565H1285H3117H1285H3915H3119H3915H6256 21In the same way I have made a covenant with my servant David that he would always have a descendant to be king, and I have made a covenant with the priests from the tribe of Levi that they would always serve me; and those covenants can never be broken.H1285H6565H1732H5650H1121H4427H3678H3881H3548H8334 22I will increase the number of descendants of my servant David and the number of priests from the tribe of Levi, so that it will be as impossible to count them as it is to count the stars in the sky or the grains of sand on the seashore."H6635H8064H5608H2344H3220H4058H7235H2233H1732H5650H3881H8334 23The LORD said to me,H1697H3068H3414H559 24"Have you noticed how people are saying that I have rejected Israel and Judah, the two families that I chose? And so they look with contempt on my people and no longer consider them a nation.H7200H5971H1696H559H8147H4940H3068H977H3988H5006H5971H1471H6440 25But I, the LORD, have a covenant with day and night, and I have made the laws that control earth and sky.H559H3068H1285H3119H3915H7760H2708H8064H776 26And just as surely as I have done this, so I will maintain my covenant with Jacob's descendants and with my servant David. I will choose one of David's descendants to rule over the descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. I will be merciful to my people and make them prosperous again."H1571H3988H2233H3290H1732H5650H3947H2233H4910H2233H85H3446H3290H7622H7725H7725H7355
