Je 30:1The word which came to Jeremiah from Jehovah, saying,

Je 30:2Thus speaks Jehovah the God of Israel, saying, Write in a book all the words which I have spoken to you.

Je 30:3Yes indeed, days are coming, declares Jehovah, when I will turn the captivity of My people Israel and Judah, says Jehovah, and I will bring them back to the land which I gave to their fathers, and they will possess it.

Je 30:4And these are the words which Jehovah spoke concerning Israel and concerning Judah:

Je 30:5For thus says Jehovah, / We have heard a voice of trembling, / Of fear and not of peace.

Je 30:6Ask now and see / Whether a man can give birth. / Why do I see every man / With his hands on his loins like a woman about to give birth / And every face turned pale?

Je 30:7Alas! For that day is great, / And there is none like it; / And it is a time of distress for Jacob, / But he will be saved out of it.

Je 30:8And on that day, declares Jehovah of hosts, I will break his yoke from your neck and tear off your bonds, and strangers will no longer make him serve them.

Je 30:9But they will serve Jehovah their God and David their King, whom I will raise up for them.

Je 30:10Therefore do not fear, O Jacob My servant, declares Jehovah, / And do not be dismayed, O Israel; / For indeed, I will save you from afar, / And your seed from the land of their captivity; / And Jacob will return and be undisturbed and at ease, / And no one will frighten him.

Je 30:11For I am with you, declares Jehovah, to save you; / For I will make a full end of all the nations to which I have scattered you; / But I will not make a full end of you, / But will correct you in measure / And will by no means leave you unpunished.

Je 30:12For thus says Jehovah, / Your hurt is incurable; / Your wound is grievous.

Je 30:13There is none to judge your judgment, to bind your wound; / There are no healing medicines for you.

Je 30:14All your lovers have forgotten you; / They do not search for you; / For I have struck you with the striking of an enemy, / With the chastisement of one who is cruel, / Because of the greatness of your iniquity; / Your sins are numerous.

Je 30:15Why do you cry out over your hurt? / Your pain is incurable. / Because of the greatness of your iniquity, / Because your sins are numerous, / I have done these things to you.

Je 30:16Therefore all those who consume you will be consumed, / And all those who distress you, every one of them, will go into captivity; / And those who plunder you will become plunder, / And all those who prey on you I will make a prey.

Je 30:17For I will bring you recovery / And will heal you of your wounds, declares Jehovah; / Because they have called you an outcast, saying, / She is Zion, whom no one searches after.

Je 30:18Thus says Jehovah, / I will turn the captivity of the tents of Jacob / And have compassion on his dwelling places; / And the city will be rebuilt on its mound, / And the palace will be inhabited after its own manner.

Je 30:19And out from them will come thanksgiving / And the voice of those who make merry. / And I will multiply them, so that they will not be few; / And I will cause them to be honored, so that they will not be small.

Je 30:20And their children will be as they were of old, / And their assembly will be established before Me; / And I will punish all those who oppress them,

Je 30:21And their leader will be one of them. / And their ruler will come out from their midst, / And I will bring him near, and he will approach Me. / For who else would be bold enough / To approach Me? declares Jehovah.

Je 30:22And you will be My people, / And I will be your God.

Je 30:23Look, the storm wind of Jehovah! / Wrath has gone forth, / A whirling tempest; / It will whirl down on the head of the wicked.

Je 30:24The burning anger of Jehovah will not turn back, / Until He has executed and until He has accomplished / The purposes of His heart; / In the last days / You will understand it.
