Bible: Jeremiah 23:5-8

23:5I, the Lord, promise 1  that a new time will certainly come 2 

when I will raise up for them a righteous branch, 3  a descendant of David.

He will rule over them with wisdom and understanding 4 

and will do what is just and right in the land. 5 

23:6 Under his rule 6  Judah will enjoy safety 7 

and Israel will live in security. 8 

This is the name he will go by:

‘The Lord has provided us with justice.’ 9 

23:7So I, the Lord, say: 10  ‘A new time will certainly come. 11  People now affirm their oaths with “I swear as surely as the Lord lives who delivered the people of Israel out of Egypt.” 23:8 But at that time they will affirm them with “I swear as surely as the Lord lives who delivered the descendants of the former nation of Israel 12  from the land of the north and from all the other lands where he had banished 13  them.” 14  At that time they will live in their own land.’
