Bible: Jeremiah 33:10-11

33:10I, the Lord, say: 1  ‘You and your people are saying 2  about this place, “It lies in ruins. There are no people or animals in it.” That is true. The towns of Judah and the streets of Jerusalem 3  will soon be desolate, uninhabited either by people or by animals. But happy sounds will again be heard in these places. 33:11 Once again there will be sounds 4  of joy and gladness and the glad celebrations of brides and grooms. 5  Once again people will bring their thank offerings to the temple of the Lord and will say, “Give thanks to the Lord who rules over all. For the Lord is good and his unfailing love lasts forever.” 6  For I, the Lord, affirm 7  that I will restore the land to what it was 8  in days of old.’ 9
