31 Revised Standard Version Passage

15Thus says the LORD:
"A voice is heard in Ramah,
lamentation and bitter weeping.
Rachel is weeping for her children;
she refuses to be comforted for her children,
because they are not."
The LORD's mercy on Israel. Jr.31.15-22
16Thus says the LORD:
"Keep your voice from weeping,
and your eyes from tears;
for your work shall be rewarded,
 says the LORD,
and they shall come back from the land of the enemy.
 
17There is hope for your future,
 says the LORD,
and your children shall come back to their own country.
 
18I have heard E'phraim bemoaning,
'Thou hast chastened me, and I was chastened,
like an untrained calf;
bring me back that I may be restored,
for thou art the LORD my God.
 
19For after I had turned away I repented;
and after I was instructed, I smote upon my thigh;
I was ashamed, and I was confounded,
because I bore the disgrace of my youth.'
 
20Is E'phraim my dear son?
Is he my darling child?
For as often as I speak against him,
I do remember him still.
Therefore my heart yearns for him;
I will surely have mercy on him,
 says the LORD.
 
21"Set up waymarks for yourself,
make yourself guideposts;
consider well the highway,
the road by which you went.
Return, O virgin Israel,
return to these your cities.
 
22How long will you waver,
O faithless daughter?
For the LORD has created a new thing on the earth:
a woman protects a man."
