Jeremiah 30-32

  • 30:1-11 – God promises to restore Israel and Judah but also makes it clear that they will still be punished for their sins. He assures them that it will be a lighter punishment.
  • 31:3 – God’s faithfulness to Israel had nothing to do with their ability to reciprocate but simply because of his great love for them. Humanity can never fully reciprocate God’s love for us.
  • 31:10-14 – What beautiful, comforting promises! God promises to turn mourning into joy, give comfort, and turn sorrow into gladness.
  • 31:31-34 – God declares a new covenant with the Israelites since the last one was broken and forgotten.
  • 32:1-5 – Zedekiah was the king of Judah appointed by the king of Babylon.
  • 32:6-15 – Jeremiah’s opportunity to buy the field was proof sent from God that he would fulfill his promises of restoration.
  • 32:16-23 – Note how many times God’s rescuing Israel from Egypt is revisited in order to offer hope of God’s faithfulness in the future.
  • 32:26-35 – Judah’s sin had greatly grieved God. They worshipped idols offered sacrifices to other gods just like the foreign nations.

32:36-41 – God’s anger morphs into abiding love as he describes drawing his people back to himself and making them his own again.
