Bible: Jeremiah 23:3-6

23:3 Then I myself will regather those of my people 1  who are still alive from all the countries where I have driven them. I will bring them back to their homeland. 2  They will greatly increase in number. 23:4 I will install rulers 3  over them who will care for them. Then they will no longer need to fear or be terrified. None of them will turn up missing. 4  I, the Lord, promise it! 5 

23:5I, the Lord, promise 6  that a new time will certainly come 7 

when I will raise up for them a righteous branch, 8  a descendant of David.

He will rule over them with wisdom and understanding 9 

and will do what is just and right in the land. 10 

23:6 Under his rule 11  Judah will enjoy safety 12 

and Israel will live in security. 13 

This is the name he will go by:

‘The Lord has provided us with justice.’ 14
