Jeremiah 46:27 New English Translation (NET Bible)

A Promise of Hope for Israel

27 [a] “You descendants of Jacob, my servants,[b] do not be afraid;
do not be terrified, people of Israel.
For I will rescue you and your descendants
from the faraway lands where you are captives.[c]
The descendants of Jacob will return to their land and enjoy peace.
They will be secure and no one will terrify them.

Footnotes:

  1. Jeremiah 46:27 sn Jer 46:27-28 are virtually the same as 30:10-11. The verses are more closely related to that context than to this. But the presence of a note of future hope for the Egyptians may have led to a note of encouragement also to the Judeans who were under threat of judgment at the same time (cf. the study notes on 46:2, 13 and 25:1-2 for the possible relative dating of these prophecies).
  2. Jeremiah 46:27 tn Heb “And/But you do not be afraid, my servant Jacob.” Here and elsewhere in the verse the terms Jacob and Israel are poetic for the people of Israel descended from the patriarch Jacob. The terms have been supplied throughout with plural referents for greater clarity.
  3. Jeremiah 46:27 tn Heb “For I will rescue you from far away, your descendants from the land of their captivity.”
