Bible: Jeremiah 31:10-14

31:10 Hear what the Lord has to say, O nations.

Proclaim it in the faraway lands along the sea.

Say, “The one who scattered Israel will regather them.

He will watch over his people like a shepherd watches over his flock.”

31:11 For the Lord will rescue the descendants of Jacob.

He will secure their release 1  from those who had overpowered them. 2 

31:12 They will come and shout for joy on Mount Zion.

They will be radiant with joy 3  over the good things the Lord provides,

the grain, the fresh wine, the olive oil,

the young sheep and calves he has given to them.

They will be like a well-watered garden

and will not grow faint or weary any more.

31:13 The Lord says, 4  “At that time young women will dance and be glad.

Young men and old men will rejoice. 5 

I will turn their grief into gladness.

I will give them comfort and joy in place of their sorrow.

31:14 I will provide the priests with abundant provisions. 6 

My people will be filled to the full with the good things I provide.”
