The Joy­ful Re­turn of the Ex­iles

Jeremiah 31:1-7

Jeremiah 31:10-13

10“Hear the word of the LORD, O na­tions, and de­clare it in the coast­lands afar off; say, ‘He who scat­tered Is­rael will gather him, and will keep him as a shep­herd keeps his flock.’ 11For the LORD has ran­somed Ja­cob, and has re­deemed him from hands too strong for him. 12They shall come and sing aloud on the height of Zion, and they shall be ra­di­ant over the good­ness of the LORD, over the grain, the wine, and the oil, and over the young of the flock and the herd; their life shall be like a wa­tered gar­den, and they shall lan­guish no more. 13Then shall the maid­ens re­joice in the dance, and the young men and the old shall be merry. I will turn their mourn­ing into joy, I will com­fort them, and give them glad­ness for sor­row.

Matthew 15:21-28

And his dis­ci­ples came and begged him, say­ing, “Send her away, for she is cry­ing af­ter us.” 24He an­swered, “I was sent only to the lost sheep of the house of Is­rael.” 25But she came and knelt be­fore him, say­ing, “Lord, help me.” 26And he an­swered, “It is not fair to take the chil­dren’s bread and throw it to the dogs.” 27She said, “Yes, Lord, yet even the dogs eat the crumbs that fall from their mas­ters’ ta­ble.” 28Then Je­sus an­swered her, “O woman, great is your faith! Be it done for you as you de­sire.” And her daugh­ter was healed in­stantly.
