CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
24:5 Acknowledge - I will acknowledge them for their good; I will shew them favour, being of the number of those who were not leaders to sin, but led away by the ill example of others, and who being carried away grew sensible of their sins, and so accepted of the punishment of their iniquities.
Then the LORD gave me this message:
This is what the LORD of Heaven's Armies, the God of Israel, says to all the captives he has exiled to Babylon from Jerusalem:
Therefore, listen to this message from the LORD, all you captives there in Babylon.
I, the Sovereign LORD, will gather you back from the nations where you have been scattered, and I will give you the land of Israel once again.'
The LORD is good, a strong refuge when trouble comes. He is close to those who trust in him.
I will bring that group through the fire and make them pure. I will refine them like silver and purify them like gold. They will call on my name, and I will answer them. I will say, 'These are my people,' and they will say, 'The LORD is our God.'"
