Jeremiah 31:1-6

Everlasting Love

At that time, says the LORD, I will be the God of all the families of Israel, and they shall be my people. 2 Thus says the LORD: The people who survived the sword found grace in the wilderness; when Israel sought for rest, 3 the LORD appeared to him from far away. I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore I have continued my faithfulness to you. 4 Again I will build you, and you shall be built, O virgin Israel! Again you shall take your tambourines, and go forth in the dance of the merrymakers. 5 Again you shall plant vineyards on the mountains of Samaria; the planters shall plant, and shall enjoy the fruit. 6 For there shall be a day when sentinels will call in the hill country of Ephraim: "Come, let us go up to Zion, to the LORD our God."

Amazing Grace

This is a very upbeat view of the return from exile. Israel will be restored to one nation, prior to the split between Northern (Israel) and Southern (Judah) kingdoms. God will forget their adulterous past, hence the term virgin Israel, and continue God's faithfulness to them. Samaria and Ephraim are names for the Northern Kingdom and their agriculture will flourish and all the people will go to Zion (Jerusalem). All-in-all the return is to be a glorious time of celebration and re-unification. Grace will be found, whether she wants to be or not.
