Jeremiah 46:27,28

(17) And there is hope in thine end . . .--Better, There is hope for thy future. The words are the same as in Jeremiah 29:11, where the English version has "an expected end." The hope here is defined as that of the return of Rachel's children to their own border--the return, that is, of the Ten Tribes from their captivity.

Verse 17. - Hope in thine end; rather, hope for thy future (comp. on ch. 29:11). There is no occasion to render, with the Septuagint and Rosenmuller, "for thy posterity" (comp. Psalm 119:13, Hebrew); for Rachel identifies herself by sympathy with her descendants.
