Jeremiah 29:10

Context

29:10 “For the Lord says, ‘Only when the seventy years of Babylonian rule 1  are over will I again take up consideration for you. 2  Then I will fulfill my gracious promise to you and restore 3  you to your homeland. 4 

Jeremiah 29:28

Context
29:28 For he has even sent a message to us here in Babylon. He wrote and told us, 5  “You will be there a long time. Build houses and settle down. Plant gardens and eat what they produce.”’” 6 

1 sn See the study note on Jer 25:11 for the reckoning of the seventy years.

2 tn See the translator’s note on Jer 27:22 for this term.

3 tn Verse 10 is all one long sentence in the Hebrew original: “According to the fullness of Babylon seventy years I will take thought of you and I will establish my gracious word to you by bringing you back to this place.” The sentence has been broken up to conform better to contemporary English style.

4 tn Heb “this place.” The text has probably been influenced by the parallel passage in 27:22. The term appears fifteen times in Jeremiah and is invariably a reference to Jerusalem or Judah.

sn See Jer 27:22 for this promise.

5 tn Heb “For he has sent to us in Babylon, saying….” The quote, however, is part of the earlier letter.

6 sn See v. 5.
