Bible: Jeremiah 24:4-7

24:4 The Lord said to me, 1  24:5 I, the Lord, the God of Israel, say: ‘The exiles whom I sent away from here to the land of Babylon 2  are like those good figs. I consider them to be good. 24:6 I will look after their welfare 3  and will restore them to this land. There I will build them up and will not tear them down. I will plant them firmly in the land 4  and will not uproot them. 5  24:7 I will give them the desire to acknowledge that I 6  am the Lord. I will be their God and they will be my people. For they will wholeheartedly 7  return to me.’
