Jeremiah 31:1–14

aAt the same time, saith the Lord,

bWill I be the God of all the families of Israel,

And they shall be my people.

Thus saith the Lord,

The people which were left of the sword found grace in the wilderness;

Even Israel, cwhen I went to cause him to rest.

The Lord hath appeared of old unto me, saying,

Yea, dI have loved thee with ean everlasting love:

Therefore ||with lovingkindness fhave I drawn thee.

Again gI will build thee, and thou shalt be built, O virgin of Israel:

Thou shalt again hbe adorned with thy ||tabrets,

And shalt go forth in ithe dances of jthem that make merry.

kThou shalt yet plant vines upon the mountains of lSamaria:

The planters shall plant, and shall eat them as common things.

For there shall be a day,

That the watchmen upon mthe mount Ephraim shall cry,

nArise ye, and let us go up to Zion unto the Lord our God.

For thus saith the Lord;

oSing with gladness for Jacob,

And oshout among pthe chief of the nations:

Publish ye, praise ye, and say,

O Lord, qsave thy people, the remnant of Israel.

Behold, I will bring them rfrom the north country,

And sgather them tfrom the coasts of the earth,

And with them uthe blind and the lame,

The woman with child and her that travaileth with child together:

A great company shall return thither.

They shall come vwith weeping,

And with ||wsupplications will I lead them:

I will cause them to walk xby the rivers of waters

yIn a straight way, wherein they shall not stumble:

For zI am a father to Israel,

And zzEphraim is amy 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 bwill gather him,

And keep him, cas a shepherd doth his flock.

11  For the Lord hath redeemed Jacob,

And dransomed him efrom the hand of him that was stronger than he.

12  Therefore they shall come and sing fin the height of Zion,

And gshall flow together hto the goodness of the Lord,

ijFor wheat, and ijkfor wine, and ifor oil,

And for the young of the flock and of the herd:

And their soul lshall be as a watered garden;

And mthey shall not sorrow any more at all.

13  Then shall the virgin rejoice nin the dance,

Both young men and old together:

For I will turn their mourning into joy,

And will comfort them, and omake them rejoice from their sorrow.

14  And I will psatiate the soul of the priests with fatness,

And my people shall be satisfied with my goodness, saith the Lord.
