Jeremiah Chapter 30 | Parsha:

1The word which came to Jeremiah from the Lord: 2Thus said the Lord, the God of Israel: Write down in a scroll all the words that I have spoken to you. 3For days are coming—declares the Lord—when I will restore the fortunes of My people Israel and Judah, said the Lord; and I will bring them back to the land that I gave their fathers, and they shall possess it. 4And these are the words that the Lord spoke concerning Israel and Judah:

5Thus said the Lord:
We have heard cries of panic,
Terror without relief.

6Ask and see:
Surely males do not bear young!
Why then do I see every man
With his hands on his loins
Like a woman in labor?
Why have all faces turned pale?

7Ah, that day is awesome;
There is none like it!
It is a time of trouble for Jacob,
But he shall be delivered from it.

8In that day—declares the Lord of Hosts—I will break the yoke from off your neck and I will rip off your bonds. Strangers shall no longer make slaves of them; 9instead, they shall serve the Lord their God and David, the king whom I will raise up for them.

10But you,
Have no fear, My servant Jacob
—declares the Lord—
Be not dismayed, O Israel!
I will deliver you from far away,
Your folk from their land of captivity.
And Jacob shall again have calm
And quiet with none to trouble him;

11For I am with you to deliver you
—declares the Lord.
I will make an end of all the nations
Among which I have dispersed you;
But I will not make an end of you!
I will not leave you unpunished,
But will chastise you in measure.

12For thus said the Lord:
Your injury is incurable,
Your wound severe;

13No one pleads for the healing of your sickness,
There is no remedy, no recovery for you.

14All your lovers have forgotten you,
They do not seek you out;
For I have struck you as an enemy strikes,
With cruel chastisement,
Because your iniquity was so great
And your sins so many.

15Why cry out over your injury,
That your wound is incurable?
I did these things to you
Because your iniquity was so great
And your sins so many.

16Assuredly,
All who wanted to devour you shall be devoured,
And every one of your foes shall go into captivity;
Those who despoiled you shall be despoiled,
And all who pillaged you I will give up to pillage.

17But I will bring healing to you
And cure you of your wounds
—declares the Lord.
Though they called you “Outcast,
That Zion whom no one seeks out,”

18Thus said the Lord:
I will restore the fortunes of Jacob’s tents
And have compassion upon his dwellings.
The city shall be rebuilt on its mound,
And the fortress in its proper place.

19From them shall issue thanksgiving
And the sound of dancers.
I will multiply them,
And they shall not be few;
I will make them honored,
And they shall not be humbled.

20His children shall be as of old,
And his community shall be established by My grace;
And I will deal with all his oppressors.

21His chieftain shall be one of his own,
His ruler shall come from his midst;
I will bring him near, that he may approach Me
—declares the Lord—
For who would otherwise dare approach Me?

22You shall be My people,
And I will be your God.

23Lo, the storm of the Lord goes forth in fury,
A raging tempest;
It shall whirl down upon the head of the wicked.

24The anger of the Lord shall not turn back
Till it has fulfilled and completed His purposes.
In the days to come
You shall perceive it.
