Jeremiah 31 vs. 3 – 4
3 The LORD appeared to us in the past, [Or LORD has appeared to us from afar] saying:
“I have loved you with an everlasting love;
I have drawn you with loving-kindness.
4 I will build you up again
and you will be rebuilt, O Virgin Israel [life of a stranger].
Again you will take up your tambourines
and go out to dance with the joyful“.
