The God of all Israelites (Jer 31:1-31:1)

“Says Yahweh.

‘At that time,

I will be the God

Of all the families                    

Of Israel.

They shall be my people.’”

Yahweh, via Jeremiah, speaks about a time in the future when he will be the God of all the families of Israel, not just the families of Judah and Jerusalem as he had often spoken about. Very clearly, all of Israel would be his people. This is a more universal outlook. Like the preceding chapter, this is a different numbered chapter in the Greek translation of the Septuagint, chapter 38, not chapter 31 as here.
