33:15 In those days and at that time I will raise up for them a righteous descendant 1 of David.
“‘He will do what is just and right in the land. 33:16 Under his rule Judah will enjoy safety 2 and Jerusalem 3 will live in security. At that time Jerusalem will be called “The Lord has provided us with justice.” 4 33:17 For I, the Lord, promise: “David will never lack a successor to occupy 5 the throne over the nation of Israel. 6 33:18 Nor will the Levitical priests ever lack someone to stand before me and continually offer up burnt offerings, sacrifice cereal offerings, and offer the other sacrifices.”’” 7
33:19 The Lord spoke further to Jeremiah. 8 33:20 “I, Lord, make the following promise: 9 ‘I have made a covenant with the day 10 and with the night that they will always come at their proper times. Only if you people 11 could break that covenant 33:21 could my covenant with my servant David and my covenant with the Levites ever be broken. So David will by all means always have a descendant to occupy his throne as king and the Levites will by all means always have priests who will minister before me. 12
