I will remember my covenant with Jacob and also my covenant with Isaac and also my covenant with Abraham, 1 and I will remember the land.
The Lord says, “I will restore the ruined houses of the descendants of Jacob. I will show compassion on their ruined homes. 1 Every city will be rebuilt on its former ruins. 2 Every fortified dwelling will occupy its traditional site. 3
The Lord, who is the portion of the descendants of Jacob, is not like them. For he is the one who created everything, including the people of Israel whom he claims as his own. 1 He is known as the Lord who rules over all. 2
Just as surely as I have done this, so surely will I never reject the descendants of Jacob. Nor will I ever refuse to choose one of my servant David’s descendants to rule over the descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Indeed, 1 I will restore them 2 and show mercy to them.”
1 “You descendants of Jacob, my servants, 2 do not be afraid; do not be terrified, people of Israel. For I will rescue you and your descendants from the faraway lands where you are captives. 3 The descendants of Jacob will return to their land and enjoy peace. They will be secure and no one will terrify them.
