Jeremiah 33:14-15

Context
The Lord Reaffirms His Covenant with David, Israel, and Levi

33:14 “I, the Lord, affirm: 1  ‘The time will certainly come when I will fulfill my gracious promise concerning the nations of Israel and Judah. 2  33:15 In those days and at that time I will raise up for them a righteous descendant 3  of David.

“‘He will do what is just and right in the land.

1 tn Heb “Oracle of the Lord.” For the first person form of address see the translator’s notes on vv. 2, 10, 12.

2 sn This refers at the very least to the promises of Jer 23:5-6, 7-8; 30:3; 31:27, 31 where the same formula “The time will certainly come (Heb “Behold the days are coming”)” occurs. Reference may also be to the promises through the earlier prophets of what is alluded to here, i.e., the restoration of Israel and Judah under a Davidic ruler and the revival of the offerings (cf. Hos 1:10-11; 3:4-5; Amos 9:11-12; Isa 11:1-5, 10-16; Jer 30:9, 21 for the former and Jer 31:14; 33:11 for the latter).

3 tn Heb “sprig” or “shoot.”

sn For the meaning of this term and its significance in biblical prophecy see the study note on 23:5.
