Jeremiah 33

Jeremiah 33:6-9

33:6 “‘Nevertheless [prophecy of future deliverance and restoration of the nation following Babylonian captivity…], I will bring health and healing to it; I will heal my people and will let them enjoy abundant peace and security.

33:7 I will bring Judah [Southern Kingdom] and Israel [Northern Kingdom] back from captivity and will rebuild [God is a forgiving God] them as they were before.

33:8 I will cleanse them from all the sin [from a word that means twisted or bent] they have committed against me [we must recognize that all sin, including violations of the sanctity of human life, is against God] and will forgive all their sins [from a word that means “to miss the mark”] of rebellion against me.

33:9 Then [after the disaster] this city [Jerusalem] will bring me renown, joy, praise and honor before all nations on earth that hear of all the good things I do for it; and they will be in awe and will tremble at the abundant prosperity and peace I provide for it.’
