14 “‘The days are coming,’ declares the Lord, ‘when I will fulfill the good promise(A) I made to the people of Israel and Judah.

15 “‘In those days and at that time
    I will make a righteous(B) Branch(C) sprout from David’s line;(D)
    he will do what is just and right in the land.
16 In those days Judah will be saved(E)
    and Jerusalem will live in safety.(F)
This is the name by which it[a] will be called:(G)
    The Lord Our Righteous Savior.’(H)

17 For this is what the Lord says: ‘David will never fail(I) to have a man to sit on the throne of Israel, 18 nor will the Levitical(J) priests(K) ever fail to have a man to stand before me continually to offer burnt offerings, to burn grain offerings and to present sacrifices.(L)’”

19 The word of the Lord came to Jeremiah: 20 “This is what the Lord says: ‘If you can break my covenant with the day(M) and my covenant with the night, so that day and night no longer come at their appointed time,(N) 21 then my covenant(O) with David my servant—and my covenant with the Levites(P) who are priests ministering before me—can be broken and David will no longer have a descendant to reign on his throne.(Q) 22 I will make the descendants of David my servant and the Levites who minister before me as countless(R) as the stars in the sky and as measureless as the sand on the seashore.’”

23 The word of the Lord came to Jeremiah: 24 “Have you not noticed that these people are saying, ‘The Lord has rejected the two kingdoms[b](S) he chose’? So they despise(T) my people and no longer regard them as a nation.(U) 25 This is what the Lord says: ‘If I have not made my covenant with day and night(V) and established the laws(W) of heaven and earth,(X) 26 then I will reject(Y) the descendants of Jacob(Z) and David my servant and will not choose one of his sons to rule over the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. For I will restore their fortunes[c](AA) and have compassion(AB) on them.’”
