Jeremiah 31 : 1-3
“1) At the same time, saith the Lord, will I be the God of all the families of Israel, and they shall be my people.
2) Thus saith the Lord, The people which were left of the sword found grace in the wilderness; even Israel, when I went to cause him to rest.
3) The Lord hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee.”
