The return from exile (Jer 30:3-30:3)

“Yahweh says.

‘The days are surely coming

When I will restore

The fortunes

Of my people,

Israel,

Along with Judah.’

Says Yahweh.

‘I will bring them back

To the land

That I gave

To their ancestors.

They shall take possession of it.’”

Yahweh says, via Jeremiah, that the days are coming when his people’s fortunes will be restored. This is not just for Judah but also Israel, the northern kingdom that went into exile in 721 BCE, over 100 years earlier. Yahweh promised to bring both of them back to the land of their ancestors so that they could take possession of it.
