Bible: Jeremiah 31:15-17

31:15 The Lord says,

A sound is heard in Ramah, 1 

a sound of crying in bitter grief.

It is the sound of Rachel weeping for her children

and refusing to be comforted, because her children are gone.” 2 

31:16 The Lord says to her, 3 

“Stop crying! Do not shed any more tears! 4 

For your heartfelt repentance 5  will be rewarded.

Your children will return from the land of the enemy.

I, the Lord, affirm it! 6 

31:17 Indeed, there is hope for your posterity. 7 

Your children will return to their own territory.

I, the Lord, affirm it! 8
