Jeremiah 30

30
Restoration for Israel and Judah
1The word that came to Jeremiah from the Lord: 2“Thus says the Lord, the God of Israel: #ch. 36:2; Hab. 2:2Write in a book all the words that I have spoken to you. 3#Hab. 2:3 For behold, days are coming, declares the Lord, #ver. 18; ch. 29:14; 31:23; 32:44; 33:7, 11, 26; Job 42:10; Lam. 2:14 when I will restore #Ezra 2:1 the fortunes of my people, #Isa. 11:12, 13; Hos. 1:11 Israel and Judah, says the Lord, #ch. 12:15; Ezek. 20:42; See ch. 16:15; 23:3and I will bring them back to the land that I gave to their fathers, and they shall take possession of it.”
4These are the words that the Lord spoke concerning #[See ver. 3 above]Israel and Judah:
5“Thus says the Lord:
We have heard a cry of panic,
of terror, and no peace.
6Ask now, and see,
can a man bear a child?
# See Isa. 13:8 Why then do I see every man
with his hands on his stomach #See Isa. 13:8 like a woman in labor?
# Nah. 2:10; [Joel 2:6] Why has every face turned pale?
7Alas! #Joel 2:11; Zeph. 1:14 That day is so great
# Dan. 12:1 there is none like it;
it is a time of distress for Jacob;
yet he shall be saved out of it.
8“And it shall come to pass in that day, declares the Lord of hosts, that I will #ch. 2:20; Nah. 1:13 break his #See ch. 27:2 yoke from off your neck, and I will #ch. 2:20; Nah. 1:13 burst your bonds, #Ezek. 34:27and foreigners shall no more make a servant of him.#30:8 Or serve him 9But they shall serve the Lord their God and #Isa. 55:3, 4; Ezek. 34:23; 37:24; Hos. 3:5; [Luke 1:69, 70; Acts 13:22, 23]; See ch. 23:5David their king, whom I will raise up for them.
10 # ch. 42:11; 46:27, 28; See Isa. 43:5 “Then fear not, #Isa. 41:8 O Jacob my servant, declares the Lord,
nor be dismayed, O Israel;
for behold, #ch. 42:11; 46:27, 28; See Isa. 43:5 I will save you from far away,
# See ch. 3:18 and your offspring from the land of their captivity.
# ch. 42:11; 46:27, 28; See Isa. 43:5 Jacob shall return and have quiet and ease,
and none shall make him afraid.
11 # ch. 46:28 For I am with you to save you,
declares the Lord;
# ch. 46:28 I will make a full end of all the nations
among whom I scattered you,
but of you I will not make a full end.
# ch. 46:28 I will #See ch. 10:24discipline you in just measure,
and I will by no means leave you unpunished.
12“For thus says the Lord:
# See ch. 15:18 Your hurt is incurable,
# ch. 10:19; 14:17 and your wound is grievous.
13There is none to uphold your cause,
no medicine for your wound,
# ch. 46:11 no healing for you.
14 # Lam. 1:2; [ch. 4:30] All your lovers have forgotten you;
they care nothing for you;
for I have dealt you the blow of #Job 13:24; 19:11; Isa. 63:10; Lam. 2:4 an enemy,
the punishment #Job 30:21; [ch. 6:23] of a merciless foe,
because your guilt is great,
# ch. 5:6 because your sins are flagrant.
15 # [See ver. 12 above] Why do you cry out over your hurt?
# [See ver. 12 above] Your pain is incurable.
Because your guilt is great,
# [See ver. 14 above] because your sins are flagrant,
I have done these things to you.
16 # [ver. 11; ch. 10:25; Isa. 41:11] Therefore all who devour you shall be devoured,
and #[Ex. 23:22] all your foes, every one of them, shall go into captivity;
# [Isa. 33:1] those who plunder you shall be plundered,
# ch. 2:14 and all who prey on you I will make a prey.
17 # ch. 33:6 For I will restore #ch. 8:22 health to you,
and #Ps. 6:2; Hos. 6:1 your wounds I will heal,
declares the Lord,
because #[Mic. 4:6, 7; Zeph. 3:19]they have called you an outcast:
# [Mic. 4:6, 7; Zeph. 3:19] ‘It is Zion, for whom no one cares!’
18“Thus says the Lord:
Behold, #[Amos 9:11]; See ver. 3 I will restore the fortunes of the tents of Jacob
and have compassion on his dwellings;
the city shall be rebuilt on #Deut. 13:16its mound,
and the palace shall stand where it used to be.
19 # ch. 31:12, 13; 33:11; Isa. 35:10; 51:11 Out of them shall come songs of thanksgiving,
and the voices of those who celebrate.
# Ezek. 36:10, 37; Zech. 10:8 I will multiply them, and they shall not be few;
I will make them honored, and they shall not be small.
20 # Isa. 1:26 Their children shall be as they were of old,
and their congregation shall be established before me,
and I will punish all who oppress them.
21 # [Gen. 49:10; Deut. 18:18] Their prince shall be one of themselves;
# [Gen. 49:10; Deut. 18:18] their ruler shall come out from their midst;
# Num. 16:5 I will make him draw near, and he shall approach me,
# ch. 49:19; [Heb. 5:4] for who would dare of himself to approach me?
declares the Lord.
22 # ch. 24:7; 31:1; 32:38; See ch. 31:33; Lev. 26:12 And you shall be my people,
and I will be your God.”
23 # ch. 23:19, 20 Behold #ch. 25:32the storm of the Lord!
Wrath has gone forth,
a whirling tempest;
it will burst upon the head of the wicked.
24 # See ch. 12:13 The fierce anger of the Lord will not turn back
until he has executed and accomplished
the intentions of his mind.
# Hos. 3:5 In the latter days you will understand this.
