July 19: Gathering and Return of the Jewish People

Like so many, today’s verses address several issues:

  • The return of the Jews to Israel
  • A warning to the nations from which they came
  • God’s discipline on Israel bringing her to righteousness.

Jeremiah 46:27-28: “But do not fear, O My servant Jacob, 
and do not be dismayed, O Israel!
 For behold, I will save you from afar,
 and your offspring from the land of their captivity;
 Jacob shall return, have rest and be at ease;
 no one shall make him afraid.

Do not fear, O Jacob My servant,” says the Lord, 
“For I am with you;
 for I will make a complete end of all the nations
 to which I have driven you,
 but I will not make a complete end of you.
 I will rightly correct you,
 for I will not leave you wholly unpunished.”
