Jeremiah 31
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1“In that time”, says LORD JEHOVAH, “I shall be God to all the tribes of Israel and those shall be to me a people”

2Thus says LORD JEHOVAH: “The people that was saved from the sword found mercy in the wilderness. Israel went into captivity”

3From a distance LORD JEHOVAH appeared to me and he said to me: “The love of eternity has loved you; because of this, I have dragged you to grace

4Again I shall build you, and you shall be built up, virgin of Israel! You will delight again in adornments, and you shall go forth in the assembly of singers

5Again you shall plant vineyards in the mountain of Samaria, plant plants and sing

6Because that day is coming that they will call watchmen in the mountain of Aphreim, and they shall say: ‘Arise, go up to Zion to LORD JEHOVAH our God!’"

7Because thus says LORD JEHOVAH: “Sing, those of the house of Yaqob, in joy, and dance for joy with the Ruler of the nations and make heard and sing and say, ‘LORD JEHOVAH ,save your people, the remnant of Israel!"

8Behold, I bring them from the north land and I shall gather them from the ends of the Earth, and also the blind and the lame that are with them and the pregnant woman and she who gives birth together, a great multitude shall return here

9With weeping they shall depart and in fervent prayer they shall come. I shall lead them on the path of the waters, in the straight ways in which they will not stumble, because I have been to Israel for a Father and Aphrim was my firstborn

10Hear the answer of LORD JEHOVAH, his people, and show in the distant islands, and say, “He who scattered Israel shall gather him and shall guard him, as a Shepherd keeps his flock

11Because LORD JEHOVAH has saved Yaqob his Servant, and he saved him from the hands of him who is stronger than he

12And they shall come and they shall sing in the height of Zion, and they shall be delighted by the good things of LORD JEHOVAH, from grain, and from wine, and from oil, and from sons of sheep and bulls, and their soul shall be like an irrigated garden, and they will not go on again being deprived

13But the virgin shall rejoice in joy, and boys and the old men shall rejoice as one, and I shall turn their mourning to joy, and I shall comfort them, and I shall make them rejoice out of their misery

14And I shall intoxicate the soul of the Priest with luxury, and by my goodness my people shall be satisfied, says LORD JEHOVAH

15Thus says LORD JEHOVAH: “A voice was heard in Ramtha, mourning, bitter weeping, Rachel weeping over her children, and she did not want to be comforted, because they are not”

16Thus says LORD JEHOVAH: “Restrain your voice from crying, and your eyes from tears, because there is a reward for your tears, says LORD JEHOVAH, and they shall return from the land of the enemy

17And there is hope for your end, says LORD JEHOVAH, and the children shall return to your borders

18Hearing, I have heard Aphreim who howled, and you said: LORD JEHOVAH has punished me and I was punished. I have been like a calf that is untamed. Return me, and I shall return, because you are LORD JEHOVAH my God!

19Because after I returned to God, I have been comforted, and after I knew I had found rest, I was ashamed, also I was rebuked, for I carried the reproach of my youth

20Son Aphreim is precious to me and a child beloved, because in a time when I speak of him, I am reminded of him; because of this, my compassions have been upon him, and I shall love upon him, says LORD JEHOVAH

21Raise up for yourself a standard and dwell in the wilderness. Give your heart to the straight way. Return, virgin of Israel, says LORD JEHOVAH, and dwell in these your cities

22How long are you doubting, backsliding daughter? For LORD JEHOVAH has created a new thing in the earth: a female shall passionately love a husband

23Thus says LORD JEHOVAH of Hosts God of Israel, therefore they will speak this word in the land of Judea and in its cities when I return their captives: ‘LORD JEHOVAH shall bless you, righteous habitation, holy mountain!’

24And Yehuda shall dwell in it and all its cities as one, Farmers and Shepherds of flocks 25Because I have made the soul of the thirsty drunk, and every soul of hunger I have filled 26Because of this, I awoke and I saw, and my sleep was sweet to me

27Behold, days are coming, says LORD JEHOVAH, and I shall plant those of the house of Israel and those of the house of Yehuda, the seed of the children of man and the seed of cattle 28And like when I purposed upon them to uproot them and to pull down and to overthrow and to destroy and to do evil, so I shall remember concerning them to build and to plant, says LORD JEHOVAH

29In those days they shall not say again, ‘The fathers ate sour grapes and the teeth of the children are set on edge’

30But a man shall die for his sins. Every son of man who eats sour grapes, his own teeth shall be set on edge

31Behold, the days are coming, says LORD JEHOVAH, and I shall make covenant with those of the house of Israel and with those of the house of Yehuda the New Covenant 32It is not like the covenant that I covenanted with their fathers in the day that I held their hands and I brought them from the land of Egypt; because they have canceled my covenant, I have also despised them, says LORD JEHOVAH 33But this is The Covenant that I shall establish with those of the house of Israel after those days, says LORD JEHOVAH: “I shall put my Law within them, and upon their hearts I shall write it, and I shall be to them God, and those shall be to me a people 34And they shall not teach again, a man his brother, and a man his neighbor, and say "Know LORD JEHOVAH”, because all of them shall know me, from their little ones and unto their Elders, says LORD JEHOVAH, because I shall forgive their debts, and their sins I shall not remember again”

35Thus says LORD JEHOVAH, who gave Heaven for light by day and the course of the moon and of the stars for the light of the night, who rebukes the Sea, and the waves are calm, LORD JEHOVAH of Hosts is his name

36If these courses shall pass away from before me, says LORD JEHOVAH, also the seed of Israel shall come to an end, that they shall not be a nation before me all of their days

37Thus says LORD JEHOVAH: “If the Heavens will be measured from above, and the foundations of the Earth will be searched out from beneath, I also shall reject all the seed of Israel for everything that they have done, says LORD JEHOVAH”

38Behold, days are coming, says LORD JEHOVAH, and the city for LORD JEHOVAH shall be built from the Tower of Khannaneil unto the Gate of the Corner 39And a cord of measuring will go forth again next to it on the hill of Gareb and shall turn to Ramtha 40And all the valley in which they throw dung and ashes, unto the valley of Qedrown and unto the corners of the eastern Gate of Horses is holiness to LORD JEHOVAH; it shall not be uprooted and it shall not be overthrown again for eternity
