God sheweth Jeremiah the return of the Jews.
Jeremiah 30:1 The word which came unto Jeremiah, from Yahweh, saying: Jeremiah 30:2 Thus, speaketh Yahweh, God of Israel, saying,Write thee all the words which I have spoken unto thee, in a scroll; Jeremiah 30:3 For lo! days are coming, Declareth Yahweh, when I will turn the captivity of my people Israel and Judah, Saith Yahweh,and will bring them back into the land which I gave to their fathers, that they might possess it.
After their trouble they shall have deliverance.
Jeremiah 30:4 Now, these, are the words which Yahweh hath spoken against Israel and against Judah: Jeremiah 30:5 Yea, thus, saith Yahweh, A voice of trembling, have we heard, Dread, and not welfare! Jeremiah 30:6 Ask, I pray you, and see, whether a male, travaileth with child! Why, have I seen, Every man with his hands upon his loins, like a woman in travail, and, Every face turned into ghastliness? Jeremiah 30:7 Alas! for, great, is that day, so that none is like it,Yea, a time of anguish, it is, for Jacob, But out of it, shall he be saved. Jeremiah 30:8 And it shall come to pass, in that day, Declareth Yahweh of hosts, That I will break his yoke from off thy neck, And, thy bonds, will I tear off,And foreigners, shall use him as a slave no more; Jeremiah 30:9 But they shall serve Yahweh their God,and David their king, whom I will raise up unto them.
He comforteth Jacob.
Jeremiah 30:10 Thou, therefore, do not fear, O my Servant Jacob, Urgeth Yahweh, Neither be thou dismayed, O Israel, For, behold me! saving thee from afar, And thy seed out of the land of their captivity,Then shall Jacob return, and rest and be quiet, And there shall be none to make him afraid; Jeremiah 30:11 For, with thee, am I, Declareth Yahweh, To save thee,Though I make an end of all the nations whither I have scattered thee, Yet, will I not, of thee, make an end, But will chastise thee in measure, not holding thee, guiltless! Jeremiah 30:12 For, Thus, saith YahwehIncurable, is thine injury,Grievous, is thy wound: Jeremiah 30:13 There is none, to plead thy cause, for binding thee up,Healing bandages, hast thou none: Jeremiah 30:14 All thy lovers, have forgotten thee, Thyself, do they not seek,For, With the wounding of an enemy, have I wounded thee, With the correction of one who is cruel, Because of the abounding of, thine iniquity, [Because] numerous, have been thy sins. Jeremiah 30:15 Why, shouldst thou make outcry over thine injury, Incurable, is thy pain? Because of the abounding of thine iniquity, [Because] numerous, have been thy sins, Have I done these things unto thee. Jeremiah 30:16 Therefore, all who devour thee, shall be devoured, And, all thine adversariesall of them, into captivity, shall depart,So shall, they who plundered thee, be plundered, And, all who preyed upon thee, will I deliver up as a prey. Jeremiah 30:17 For I will put a bandage upon thee, And, from thy wounds, will I heal thee, Declareth Yahweh,Because, An outcast, they called thee, 'Tis, Zion! who hath, none to ask for her welfare.
Their return shall be gracious.
Jeremiah 30:18 Thus, saith YahwehBehold me! bringing back the captivity of the tents of Jacob, And, on his habitations, will I have compassion,So shall the city be built, upon her own mound, And, the citadel, upon its own site, shall remain: Jeremiah 30:19 So shall there proceed from them, thanksgiving, and, The sound of them who make merry,And I will multiply them, and they shall not become few, And will make them honourable, and they shall not be despised: Jeremiah 30:20 And, his sons, shall come to be, as aforetime, And, his assembly, before me, shall continue,And I will bring punishment on all his oppressors; Jeremiah 30:21 And, his illustrious one, shall spring, from himself, And, his ruler, from his own midst, shall proceed, And I will bring him near, and he shall approach unto me,For who is, there that hath pledged his own heart to approach unto me? Demandeth Yahweh: Jeremiah 30:22 So shall ye become my, people; And, I, will become your, God.
Wrath shall fall on the wicked.
Jeremiah 30:23 Lo! the tempest of Yahweh! Indignation, hath come forth, A tempest rolling itself upward,Upon the head of the lawless ones, shall it hurl itself down! Jeremiah 30:24 The fierceness of the anger of Yahweh will, not turn back, Until he hath executed, nor, Until he hath established, The purposes of his heart,In the afterpart of the days, shall ye understand it.
