"I will bring them back," God promises.
They are now scattered. They are far from home. And, then dislocation is more than geographic--among them are the blind and the lame. All will be brought home. They will once more be together, once more be at home.
Jeremiah describes the gifts of their new life--grain, wine, and oil. Party food, everyday food.
And, they will be happy about being home, about their food, and about being together.
Praise the Lord, O Jerusalem! Praise your God, O Zion!
For he strengthens the bars of your gates; he fills you with the finest of wheat.
He sends out his command to the earth; his word runs swiftly.... (Psalm 147)
