Israel’s Mourning Turned to Joy

1 “At that time,” declares the LORD, “I will be the aGod of all the bfamilies of Israel, and they shall be My people.”

[1] aJr 30:22 bGn 17:7, 8; Is 41:10; Ro 11:26-28

  2 ¶ Thus says the LORD,
  “The people who survived the sword
  aFound grace in the wilderness
  Israel, when it went to bfind its rest.”
  3 The LORD appeared to Ihim from afar, [saying],
  “I have aloved you with an everlasting love;
  Therefore I have drawn you with blovingkindness.
  4aAgain I will build you and you will be rebuilt,
  O virgin of Israel!
  Again you will Itake up your btambourines,
  And go forth to the dances of the cmerrymakers.
  5 “Again you will aplant vineyards
  On the Ihills of Samaria;
  The planters will plant
  And will IIenjoy [them].
  6 “For there will be a day when watchmen
  On the hills of Ephraim call out,
  ‘Arise, and alet us go up [to] Zion,
  To the LORD our God.’”

  7 ¶ For thus says the LORD,
  “aSing aloud with gladness for Jacob,
  And shout among the Ibchief of the nations;
  Proclaim, give praise and say,
  ‘O LORD, csave Your people,
  The dremnant of Israel.’
  8 “Behold, I am abringing them from the north country,
  And I will bgather them from the remote parts of the earth,
  Among them the cblind and the dlame,
  The woman with child and she who is in labor with child, together;
  A great Icompany, they will return here.
  9aWith weeping they will come,
  And by supplication I will lead them;
  I will make them walk by bstreams of waters,
  On a straight path in which they will cnot stumble;
  For I am a dfather to Israel,
  And Ephraim is eMy firstborn.”

  10 ¶ Hear the word of the LORD, O nations,
  And declare in the acoastlands afar off,
  And say, “He who scattered Israel will bgather him
  And keep him as a cshepherd keeps his flock.”
  11 For the LORD has aransomed Jacob
  And redeemed him from the hand of him who was bstronger than he.
  12 “They will acome and shout for joy on the bheight of Zion,
  And they will be cradiant over the Ibounty of the LORD
  Over the dgrain and the new wine and the oil,
  And over the young of the eflock and the herd;
  And their life will be like a fwatered garden,
  And they will gnever languish again.
  13 “Then the virgin will rejoice in the adance,
  And the young men and the old, together,
  For I will bturn their mourning into joy
  And will comfort them and give them cjoy for their sorrow.
  14 “I will Ifill the soul of the priests with IIabundance,
  And My people will be asatisfied with My goodness,” declares the LORD.

  She crefuses to be comforted for her children,
  Because dthey are no more.”
16 Thus says the LORD,
  “aRestrain your voice from weeping
  And your eyes from tears;
  For your bwork will be rewarded,” declares the LORD,
  “And they will creturn from the land of the enemy.
  17 “There is ahope for your future,” declares the LORD,
  “And [your] children will return to their own territory.
  18 “I have surely heard Ephraim agrieving,
  ‘You have bchastised me, and I was chastised,
  Like an untrained ccalf;
  dBring me back that I may be restored,
  For You are the LORD my God.
  19 ‘For after I turned back, I arepented;
  And after I was instructed, I bsmote on [my] thigh;
  I was cashamed and also humiliated
  Because I bore the reproach of my youth.’
  20 “Is aEphraim My dear son?
  Is he a delightful child?
  Indeed, as often as I have spoken against him,
  I certainly [still] remember him;
  Therefore My Ibheart yearns for him;
  I will surely chave mercy on him,” declares the LORD.

A New Covenant

27 ¶ “Behold, days are coming,” declares the LORD, “when I will asow the house of Israel and the house of Judah with the seed of man and with the seed of beast. 28 As I have awatched over them to bpluck up, to break down, to overthrow, to destroy and to bring disaster, so I will watch over them to cbuild and to plant,” declares the LORD.
  29 “In those days they will not say again,
  ‘aThe fathers have eaten sour grapes,
  And the children’s teeth are Iset on edge.’
30 But aeveryone will die for his own iniquity; each man who eats the sour grapes, his teeth will be Iset on edge.

37 Thus says the LORD,

The restoration of Israel.

1 ¶ At the same time, saith the LORD, will I be the God of all the families of Israel, and they shall be my people. 2 Thus saith the LORD, The people [which were] left of the sword found grace in the wilderness; [even] Israel, when I went to cause him to rest. 3 The LORD hath appeared of old unto me, [saying], Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee. 4 Again I will build thee, and thou shalt be built, O virgin of Israel: thou shalt again be adorned with thy tabrets, and shalt go forth in the dances of them that make merry. 5 Thou shalt yet plant vines upon the mountains of Samaria: the planters shall plant, and shall eat [them] as common things. 6 For there shall be a day, [that] the watchmen upon the mount Ephraim shall cry, Arise ye, and let us go up to Zion unto the LORD our God. 7 For thus saith the LORD; Sing with gladness for Jacob, and shout among the chief of the nations: publish ye, praise ye, and say, O LORD, save thy people, the remnant of Israel. 8 Behold, I will bring them from the north country, and gather them from the coasts of the earth, [and] with them the blind and the lame, the woman with child and her that travaileth with child together: a great company shall return thither. 9 They shall come with weeping, and with supplications will I lead them: I will cause them to walk by the rivers of waters in a straight way, wherein they shall not stumble: for I am a father to Israel, and Ephraim [is] my firstborn.

10 ¶ Hear the word of the LORD, O ye nations, and declare [it] in the isles afar off, and say, He that scattered Israel will gather him, and keep him, as a shepherd [doth] his flock. 11 For the LORD hath redeemed Jacob, and ransomed him from the hand of [him that was] stronger than he. 12 Therefore they shall come and sing in the height of Zion, and shall flow together to the goodness of the LORD, for wheat, and for wine, and for oil, and for the young of the flock and of the herd: and their soul shall be as a watered garden; and they shall not sorrow any more at all. 13 Then shall the virgin rejoice in the dance, both young men and old together: for I will turn their mourning into joy, and will comfort them, and make them rejoice from their sorrow. 14 And I will satiate the soul of the priests with fatness, and my people shall be satisfied with my goodness, saith the LORD.

Ephraim repenting is brought home again.

18 ¶ I have surely heard Ephraim bemoaning himself [thus]; Thou hast chastised me, and I was chastised, as a bullock unaccustomed [to the yoke]: turn thou me, and I shall be turned; for thou [art] the LORD my God. 19 Surely after that I was turned, I repented; and after that I was instructed, I smote upon [my] thigh: I was ashamed, yea, even confounded, because I did bear the reproach of my youth. 20 [Is] Ephraim my dear son? [is he] a pleasant child? for since I spake against him, I do earnestly remember him still: therefore my bowels are troubled for him; I will surely have mercy upon him, saith the LORD. 21 Set thee up waymarks, make thee high heaps: set thine heart toward the highway, [even] the way [which] thou wentest: turn again, O virgin of Israel, turn again to these thy cities.

22 ¶ How long wilt thou go about, O thou backsliding daughter? for the LORD hath created a new thing in the earth, A woman shall compass a man. 23 Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; As yet they shall use this speech in the land of Judah and in the cities thereof, when I shall bring again their captivity; The LORD bless thee, O habitation of justice, [and] mountain of holiness. 24 And there shall dwell in Judah itself, and in all the cities thereof together, husbandmen, and they [that] go forth with flocks. 25 For I have satiated the weary soul, and I have replenished every sorrowful soul. 26 Upon this I awaked, and beheld; and my sleep was sweet unto me.

His care over the Church.

His New Covenant.

31 ¶ Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: 32 Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day [that] I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD: 33 But this [shall be] the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people. 34 And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.
