Jeremiah 30:10

Context

30:10 So I, the Lord, tell you not to be afraid,

you descendants of Jacob, my servants. 1

Context

51:50 You who have escaped the sword, 7 

go, do not delay. 8 

Remember the Lord in a faraway land.

Think about Jerusalem. 9 

1 tn Heb “So do not be afraid, my servant Jacob, oracle of the Lord.” Here and elsewhere in the verse the terms Jacob and Israel are poetic for the people of Israel descended from the patriarch Jacob. The terms have been supplied throughout with plural referents for greater clarity.

2 tn Heb “For I will rescue you from far away, your descendants from the land of their captivity.”

3 sn Compare the ideals of the Mosaic covenant in Lev 26:6, the Davidic covenant in 2 Sam 7:10-11, and the new covenant in Ezek 34:25-31.

4 sn Jer 46:27-28 are virtually the same as 30:10-11. The verses are more closely related to that context than to this. But the presence of a note of future hope for the Egyptians may have led to a note of encouragement also to the Judeans who were under threat of judgment at the same time (cf. the study notes on 46:2, 13 and 25:1-2 for the possible relative dating of these prophecies).

5 tn Heb “And/But you do not be afraid, my servant Jacob.” Here and elsewhere in the verse the terms Jacob and Israel are poetic for the people of Israel descended from the patriarch Jacob. The terms have been supplied throughout with plural referents for greater clarity.

6 tn Heb “For I will rescue you from far away, your descendants from the land of their captivity.”

7 sn God’s exiled people are told to leave doomed Babylon (see v. 45).

8 tn Heb “don’t stand.”

9 tn Heb “let Jerusalem go up upon your heart.” The “heart” is often viewed as the seat of one’s mental faculties and thought life.
