In chapter 31 you see where God is telling the people that they will soon be sent into exile and Jerusalem will be burned to the ground. This event occurred in 586 B.C. Notice though how God’s promise is to bring them back one day and to have a new covenant with them. Notice how this covenant is the covenant we now have with God through Jesus Christ. Jeremiah’s prophecy came true some 600 years later. God knew what he was doing in the midst of what the people thought was utter chaos. Once again our trust in God should be unwavering for he knows what the future holds.
