(每日读经3/24) 耶利米书 - Jeremiah 31.23-37
Thus says Jehovah of hosts, the God of Israel, Once more they will say this word in the land of Judah and in its cities, when I turn again their captivity, Jehovah bless you, O habitation of righteousness, O mountain of holiness.
And Judah and all its cities will dwell together in it, the farmers and they who wander with the flocks.
For I have satisfied the weary soul and filled every languishing soul.
At this I awoke and looked, and my sleep was pleasant to me.
Indeed, days are coming, declares Jehovah, when I will sow the house of Israel and the house of Judah with the seed of man and with the seed of beast.
And as I have watched over them to pluck up and to break down and to overthrow and to destroy and to bring evil, so I will watch over them to build and to plant, declares Jehovah.
In those days they will no longer say, The fathers eat sour grapes, And the children's teeth are set on edge.
For everyone will die for his own iniquity; every man who eats sour grapes; his own teeth will be set on edge.
Indeed, days are coming, declares Jehovah, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah,
Not like the covenant which I made with their fathers in the day I took them by their hand to bring them out from the land of Egypt, My covenant which they broke, although I was their Husband, declares Jehovah.
But this is the covenant which I will make with the house of Israel after those days, declares Jehovah: I will put My law within them and write it upon their hearts; and I will be their God, and they will be My people.
And they will no longer teach, each man his neighbor and each man his brother, saying, Know Jehovah; for all of them will know Me, from the little one among them even to the great one among them, declares Jehovah, for I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more.
Thus says Jehovah, Who gives the sun for light by day And the order of the moon and the stars for light by night, Who stirs up the sea so that its waves roar-Jehovah of hosts is His name -
If this order departs From before Me, declares Jehovah, Then the seed of Israel will also cease From being a nation before Me forever.
Thus says Jehovah, If the heavens above can be measured, And the foundations of the earth below can be examined carefully, Then I will also cast off all the seed of Israel For all they have done, declares Jehovah.
