Bible: Jeremiah 29:4-7

29:4The Lord God of Israel who rules over all 1  says to all those he sent 2  into exile to Babylon from Jerusalem, 3  29:5 Build houses and settle down. Plant gardens and eat what they produce. 29:6 Marry and have sons and daughters. Find wives for your sons and allow your daughters get married so that they too can have sons and daughters. Grow in number; do not dwindle away. 29:7 Work to see that the city where I sent you as exiles enjoys peace and prosperity. Pray to the Lord for it. For as it prospers you will prosper.’
