33:1 Moreover the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah the second
time, while he was yet confined in the court of the prison,
33:2 Thus saith the LORD the maker of this, the LORD that formed
it, to establish it; the LORD [is] his name;
33:3 Call to me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and
mighty things, which thou knowest not.
33:4 For thus saith the LORD, the God of Israel, concerning the
houses of this city, and concerning the houses of the kings of
Judah, which are thrown down by the mounts, and by the sword;
33:5 They come to fight with the Chaldeans, but [it is] to fill
them with the dead bodies of men, whom I have slain in my anger
and in my fury, and for all whose wickedness I have hid my face
from this city.
33:6 Behold, I will bring it health and cure, and I will cure
them, and will reveal to them the abundance of peace and truth.
33:7 And I will cause the captivity of Judah and the captivity
of Israel to return, and will build them, as at the first.
33:8 And I will cleanse them from all their iniquity, by which
they have sinned against me; and I will pardon all their
iniquities, by which they have sinned, and by which they have
transgressed against me.
33:9 And it shall be to me a name of joy, a praise, and an honor
before all the nations of the earth, which shall hear all the
good that I do to them: and they shall fear and tremble for all
the goodness and for all the prosperity that I procure to it.
33:10 Thus saith the LORD; Again there shall be heard in this
place, which ye say [shall be] desolate without man and without
beast, [even] in the cities of Judah, and in the streets of
Jerusalem, that are desolate, without man, and without
inhabitant, and without beast,
33:11 The voice of joy, and the voice of gladness, the voice of
the bridegroom, and the voice of the bride, the voice of them
that shall say, Praise the LORD of hosts: for the LORD [is]
good; for his mercy [endureth] for ever: [and] of them that
shall bring the sacrifice of praise into the house of the LORD.
For I will cause to return the captivity of the land, as at the
first, saith the LORD.
33:12 Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Again in this place, which
is desolate without man and without beast, and in all its
cities, shall be a habitation of shepherds causing [their]
flocks to lie down.
33:13 In the cities of the mountains, in the cities of the vale,
and in the cities of the south, and in the land of Benjamin,
and in the places about Jerusalem, and in the cities of Judah,
shall the flocks pass again under the hands of him that
counteth [them], saith the LORD.
33:14 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will perform
that good thing which I have promised to the house of Israel
and to the house of Judah.
33:15 In those days, and at that time, will I cause the branch
of righteousness to grow up to David; and he shall execute
judgment and righteousness in the land.
33:16 In those days shall Judah be saved, and Jerusalem shall
dwell in safety: and this [is the name] by which she shall be
called, JEHOVAH our righteousness.
33:17 For thus saith the LORD; David shall never want a man to
sit upon the throne of the house of Israel;
33:18 Neither shall the priests the Levites want a man before me
to offer burnt-offerings, and to kindle meat-offerings, and to
do sacrifice continually.
33:19 And the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah, saying,
33:20 Thus saith the LORD; If ye can break my covenant of the
day, and my covenant of the night, so that there should not be
day and night in their season;
33:21 [Then] also may my covenant be broken with David my
servant, that he should not have a son to reign upon his
throne; and with the Levites the priests, my ministers.
33:22 As the host of heaven cannot be numbered, neither the sand
of the sea measured: so will I multiply the seed of David my
servant, and the Levites that minister to me.
33:23 Moreover the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah, saying,
33:24 Considerest thou not what this people have spoken, saying,
The two families which the LORD hath chosen, he hath even cast
them off? thus they have despised my people, that they should
be no more a nation before them.
33:25 Thus saith the LORD; If my covenant [is] not with day and
night, [and if] I have not appointed the ordinances of heaven
33:26 Then will I cast away the seed of Jacob, and David my
servant, [so] that I will not take [any] of his seed [to be]
rulers over the seed of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; for I will
cause their captivity to return, and have mercy on them.
