ye strong

(7) Be ye strong therefore.--Rather, But ye, be ye strong.

Be weak.--Droop, or hang down (Zephaniah 3:16; 2Samuel 4:1).

Your work shall be rewarded.--Literally, there is indeed a reward for your work; words occurring in Jeremiah 31:16. We have here the moral of the prophet's address. The ruinous results of not "seeking," and "forsaking," Jehovah (2Chronicles 15:2) have been briefly but powerfully sketched from the past history of the nation. The conclusion is, Do not ye fall away like your forefathers; but let your allegiance to Jehovah be decided and sincere.

Your work.--Of rooting out idolatry. . . .

Verse 7. - Work... rewarded (so Jeremiah 31:16; Ecclesiastes 4:9; Proverbs 11:18; and compare with them the crown of all the rest, Genesis 15:1).
