do not be dismayed, Israel.
For I will bring you home again from distant lands,
and your children will return from their exile.
Israel[fn] will return to a life of peace and quiet,
and no one will terrorize them.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 46:28 - Do not be afraid, Jacob, my servant,
for I am with you,” says the LORD.

but I will not completely destroy you.
I will discipline you, but with justice;
I cannot let you go unpunished.”
