The blessing for the people of Judah (Jer 31:23-31:23)

“Thus says Yahweh of hosts!

The God of Israel!

‘Once more

They shall use

These words

In the land of Judah,

In its towns,

When I restore

Their fortunes.

‘Yahweh bless you!

O habitation of righteousness!

O holy hill!’”

Yahweh then blessed Judah and its towns sometime around 587 BCE at the time of the second Babylonian captivity. They should remember these words that were in Judah and all its towns. Yahweh was going to restore their fortunes. Yahweh would bless them in their place of righteousness, on the holy hill in Jerusalem. They just had to wait.
