Jeremiah 3:14

Context

3:14 “Come back to me, my wayward sons,” says the Lord, “for I am your true master. 1  If you do, 2  I will take one of you from each town and two of you from each family group, and I will bring you back to Zion.

1 tn Or “I am your true husband.”

sn There is a wordplay between the term “true master” and the name of the pagan god Baal. The pronoun “I” is emphatic, creating a contrast between the Lord as Israel’s true master/husband versus Baal as Israel’s illegitimate lover/master. See 2:23-25.

2 tn The words, “If you do” are not in the text but are implicit in the connection of the Hebrew verb with the preceding.
