Bible: Jer 31:35-37

The Lord Guarantees Israel’s Continuance

31:35 The Lord has made a promise to Israel.

He promises it as the one who fixed the sun to give light by day

and the moon and stars to give light by night.

He promises it as the one who stirs up the sea so that its waves roll.

He promises it as the one who is known as the Lord who rules over all. 1 

31:36 The Lord affirms, 2 The descendants of Israel will not

cease forever to be a nation in my sight.

That could only happen if the fixed ordering of the heavenly lights

were to cease to operate before me.” 3 

31:37 The Lord says, “I will not reject all the descendants of Israel

because of all that they have done. 4 

That could only happen if the heavens above could be measured

or the foundations of the earth below could all be explored,” 5 

says the Lord. 6
