English Standard Version
Restoration for Israel and Judah
1The word that came to Jeremiah from the Lord: 2“Thus says the Lord, the God of Israel: Write in a book all the words that I have spoken to you. 3For behold, days are coming, declares the Lord, when I will restore the fortunes of my people, Israel and Judah, says the Lord, and 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 Israel and Judah:
5“Thus says the Lord:
8“And it shall come to pass in that day, declares the Lord of hosts, that I will break his yoke from off your neck, and I will burst your bonds, and foreigners shall no more make a servant of him.a 9But they shall serve the Lord their God and David their king, whom I will raise up for them.
10“Then fear not, O Jacob my servant, declares the Lord,
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.
I will discipline you in just measure,
and I will by no means leave you unpunished.
12“For thus says the Lord:
because they have called you an outcast:
‘It is Zion, for whom no one cares!’
18“Thus says the Lord:
23Behold the storm of the Lord!
a 8 Or serve him
