“For I am with you to save you …” (v11). Jeremiah prophesied that because of Judah’s sins, God’s discipline would fall on them through the Babylonian invasion. However, God promised not to make “a full end” of His people; He would not destroy them completely. After decades of captivity, God would save His people “from far away,” and return them to their own land of “quiet and ease” (v10). The key was that they had to repent and submit to His will for them.
“And you shall be My people, and I shall be your God” (v22). God doesn’t give up on us easily. He uses both discipline and mercy for our good, to bring us back to fellowship with Him.
