Things You Could Never Figure Out on Your Own

33While Jeremiah was still locked up in jail, a second Message from GOD was given to him:H1697H3068H3414H8145H6113H2691H4307H559 2"This is GOD's Message, the God who made earth, made it livable and lasting, known everywhere as GOD:H559H3068H6213H3068H3335H3559H3068H8034 3'Call to me and I will answer you. I'll tell you marvelous and wondrous things that you could never figure out on your own.'H7121H6030H5046H1419H1219H3045 4"This is what GOD, the God of Israel, has to say about what's going on in this city, about the homes of both people and kings that have been demolished, about all the ravages of warH559H3068H430H3478H1004H5892H1004H4428H3063H5422H5550H2719 5and the killing by the Chaldeans, and about the streets littered with the dead bodies of those killed because of my raging anger—about all that's happened because the evil actions in this city have turned my stomach in disgust.H935H3898H3778H4390H6297H120H5221H639H2534H7451H5641H6440H5892 6"But now take another look. I'm going to give this city a thorough renovation, working a true healing inside and out. I'm going to show them life whole, life brimming with blessings.H5927H724H4832H7495H1540H6283H7965H571 7I'll restore everything that was lost to Judah and Jerusalem. I'll build everything back as good as new.H7622H3063H7622H3478H7725H1129H7223 8I'll scrub them clean from the dirt they've done against me. I'll forgive everything they've done wrong, forgive all their rebellions.H2891H5771H2398H5545H5771H2398H6586 9And Jerusalem will be a center of joy and praise and glory for all the countries on earth. They'll get reports on all the good I'm doing for her. They'll be in awe of the blessings I am pouring on her.H8034H8342H8416H8597H1471H776H8085H2896H6213H6342H7264H2896H7965H6213 10"Yes, GOD's Message: 'You're going to look at this place, these empty and desolate towns of Judah and streets of Jerusalem, and say, "A wasteland. Unlivable. Not even a dog could live here."H559H3068H8085H4725H559H2720H120H929H5892H3063H2351H3389H8074H120H3427H929 11But the time is coming when you're going to hear laughter and celebration, marriage festivities, people exclaiming, "Thank GOD-of-the-Angel-Armies. He's so good! His love never quits," as they bring thank offerings into GOD's Temple. I'll restore everything that was lost in this land. I'll make everything as good as new.' I, GOD, say so.H6963H8342H6963H8057H6963H2860H6963H3618H6963H559H3034H3068H6635H3068H2896H2617H5769H935H8426H1004H3068H7725H7622H776H7223H559H3068 12"GOD-of-the-Angel-Armies says: 'This coming desolation, unfit for even a stray dog, is once again going to become a pasture for shepherds who care for their flocks.H559H3068H6635H4725H2720H120H929H5892H5116H7462H6629H7257 13You'll see flocks everywhere—in the mountains around the towns of the Shephelah and Negev, all over the territory of Benjamin, around Jerusalem and the towns of Judah—flocks under the care of shepherds who keep track of each sheep.' GOD says so.H5892H2022H5892H8219H5892H5045H776H1144H5439H3389H5892H3063H6629H5674H3027H4487H559H3068

A Fresh and True Shoot from the David-Tree

14"'Watch for this: The time is coming'—GOD's Decree—'when I will keep the promise I made to the families of Israel and Judah.H3117H935H5002H3068H6965H2896H1697H1696H1004H3478H1004H3063 15When that time comes, I will make a fresh and true shoot sprout from the David-Tree. He will run this country honestly and fairly. He will set things right.H3117H6256H6780H6666H6779H1732H6213H4941H6666H776 16That's when Judah will be secure and Jerusalem live in safety. The motto for the city will be, "GOD Has Set Things Right for Us."H3117H3063H3467H3389H7931H983H7121H3072 17GOD has made it clear that there will always be a descendant of David ruling the people of IsraelH559H3068H1732H3808H3772H376H3427H3678H1004H3478 18and that there will always be Levitical priests on hand to offer burnt offerings, present grain offerings, and carry on the sacrificial worship in my honor.'"H3548H3881H3772H376H6440H5927H5930H6999H4503H6213H2077H3117 19GOD's Message to Jeremiah:H1697H3068H3414H559 20"GOD says, 'If my covenant with day and my covenant with night ever fell apart so that day and night became haphazard and you never knew which was coming and when,H559H3068H6565H1285H3117H1285H3915H3119H3915H6256 21then and only then would my covenant with my servant David fall apart and his descendants no longer rule. The same goes for the Levitical priests who serve me.H1285H6565H1732H5650H1121H4427H3678H3881H3548H8334 22Just as you can't number the stars in the sky nor measure the sand on the seashore, neither will you be able to account for the descendants of David my servant and the Levites who serve me.'"H6635H8064H5608H2344H3220H4058H7235H2233H1732H5650H3881H8334 23GOD's Message to Jeremiah:H1697H3068H3414H559 24"Have you heard the saying that's making the rounds: 'The two families GOD chose, Israel and Judah, he disowned'? And have you noticed that my people are treated with contempt, with rumors afoot that there's nothing to them anymore?H7200H5971H1696H559H8147H4940H3068H977H3988H5006H5971H1471H6440 25"Well, here's GOD's response: 'If my covenant with day and night wasn't in working order, if sky and earth weren't functioning the way I set them going,H559H3068H1285H3119H3915H7760H2708H8064H776 26then, but only then, you might think I had disowned the descendants of Jacob and of my servant David, and that I wouldn't set up any of David's descendants over the descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. But as it is, I will give them back everything they've lost. The last word is, I will have mercy on them.'"H1571H3988H2233H3290H1732H5650H3947H2233H4910H2233H85H3446H3290H7622H7725H7725H7355
