Jeremiah 52:31-34 (JDV)
Jeremiah 52:31 On the twenty-fifth day of the twelfth month of the thirty-seventh year of the exile of Judah’s King Jehoiachin, King Evil-merodach of Babylon, in the first year of his reign, pardoned King Jehoiachin of Judah and took him out from prison.
Jeremiah 52:32 He spoke kindly to him and set his throne above the thrones of the kings who were with him in Babylon.
Jeremiah 52:33 So Jehoiachin changed his prison clothes, and he dined regularly in the presence of the king of Babylon for the rest of his life.
Jeremiah 52:34 As for his provision, a regular provision was given to him by the king of Babylon, something for each day until the day of his death, for the rest of his life.
Jeremiah concludes his book by recounting some of the historical events, including the fall of Jerusalem and the deporting and deaths of many of its leaders. The book begs for a sequel, but we do not get one. The people of God must wait for the seventy years of exile to be completed, and trust that the LORD will make good his promises. Sometimes we do not get the happy ending we long for in this life. We can take comfort from the fact that our LORD has plans for us that will be fulfilled long after we die. Nothing can separate us from his love.
LORD, give us patience to wait with confidence.
