Jeremiah 30:3-4

Context
30:3 For I, the Lord, affirm 1  that the time will come when I will reverse the plight 2  of my people, Israel and Judah,’ says the Lord. ‘I will bring them back to the land I gave their ancestors 3  and they will take possession of it once again.’” 4 

Israel and Judah Will Be Delivered after a Time of Deep Distress

30:4 So here is what the Lord has to say about Israel and Judah. 5 

1 tn Heb “Oracle of the Lord.”

2 tn Heb “restore the fortune.” For the translation and meaning of this idiom see the note at 29:14.

3 tn Heb “fathers.”

4 sn As the nations of Israel and Judah were united in their sin and suffered the same fate – that of exile and dispersion – (cf. Jer 3:8; 5:11; 11:10, 17) so they will ultimately be regathered from the nations and rejoined under one king, a descendant of David, and regain possession of their ancestral lands. The prophets of both the eighth and seventh century looked forward to this ideal (see, e.g., Hos 1:11 (2:2 HT); Isa 11:11-13; Jer 23:5-6; 30:3; 33:7; Ezek 37:15-22). This has already been anticipated in Jer 3:18.

5 tn Heb “And these are the words/things that the Lord speaks concerning Israel and Judah.”
