Jeremiah Chapter 23

Jeremiah 23:1

jer 23:1


This final restoration is shown to be accomplished after a period of unexampled tribulation (Jer 30:3-10) and in connection with the manifestation of David's righteous Branch (Jer 23:5) who is also Jehovah-tsidkenu (Jer 23:6). The restoration here foretold is not to be confounded with the return of a feeble remnant of Judah under Ezra, Nehemiah, and Zerubbabel at the end of the 70 years (Jer 29:10). At His first advent Christ, David's righteous Branch (Luk 1:31-33) did not "execute justice and judgment in the earth," but was crowned with thorns and crucified. Neither was Israel the nation restored, nor did the Jewish people say, "The Lord our righteousness." Compare (Rom 10:3).

The prophecy is yet to be fulfilled. (Act 15:14-17).
