The everlasting love of God (Jer 31:2-31:3)

“Thus says Yahweh.

‘The people who survived

The sword

Found grace

In the wilderness.

When Israel sought rest,

Yahweh appeared

To them

From far away.

I have loved you

With an everlasting love.

Therefore I have continued

My faithfulness to you.’”

Yahweh, via Jeremiah, reminded the Israelites of his everlasting love for them. Those who had survived the sword found grace or favor in the wilderness. When Israel was looking for a resting place, Yahweh appeared to them, but from a distance. Yahweh has loved them with an everlasting love. He has continued to be faithful to them, no matter what.
