Jeremiah 31:7 - 31:14

7 For thus says Yahweh,
“Sing aloud with gladness for Jacob,
And shout among the head of the nations;
Make it heard, give praise, and say,
‘O Yahweh, save Your people,
The remnant of Israel.’
Behold, I am bringing them from the north country,
And I will gather them from the remote parts of the earth,
Among them the blind and the lame,
The woman with child and she who is in labor with child, together;
A great assembly, they will return here.
With weeping they will come,
And by supplication I will lead them;
I will make them walk by streams of waters,
On a straight path in which they will not stumble;
For I am a father to Israel,
And Ephraim is My firstborn.”

Hear the word of Yahweh, O nations,
And declare in the coastlands far away,
And say, “He who dispersed Israel will gather him
And keep him as a shepherd keeps his flock.”
For Yahweh has ransomed Jacob
And redeemed him from the hand of him who was stronger than he.
“They will come and sing for joy on the height of Zion,
And they will be radiant over the goodness of Yahweh—
Over the grain and the new wine and the oil,
And over the young of the flock and the herd;
And their soul will be like a watered garden,
And they will never waste away again.
Then the virgin will be glad in the dance,
And the young men and the old, together,
For I will turn their mourning into joy
And will comfort them and give them gladness for their sorrow.
I will fill the soul of the priests with richness,
And My people will be satisfied with My goodness,” declares Yahweh.
