Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

August 12 - Morning

"In those days and at that time
I will make a righteous Branch sprout from David’s line;
he will do what is just and right in the land.
In those days Judah will be saved
and Jerusalem will live in safety.
This is the name by which it will be called:
The Lord Our Righteous Savior '...

...The word of the Lord came to Jeremiah:

“This is what the Lord says:
‘If you can break my covenant with the day and my covenant with the night, so that day and night no longer come at their appointed time, then my covenant with David my servant
— and my covenant with the Levites who
are priests ministering before me —
can be broken and David will no longer have a descendant to reign on his throne. I will make the descendants of David my servant and the Levites who minister before me as countless as the
stars in the sky and as measureless as
the sand on the seashore.’
' "

- Jeremiah 33:15-16, 19-22

Jeremiah Points People to the Hope that is in Jesus, the Rightful Heir of David    

These verses, Jeremiah 33:15-22, promise the full restoration of the Davidic dynasty and the Levitical priesthood. The Words of God recorded here came to Jeremiah in 587 BC during the final months of the Babylonian siege that will result in the 586 destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple. According
to Jeremiah 33:1 the prophet was still confined to the courtyard of the guard, but his message has moved from words of warning and judgment to words of comfort with promises of restoration and a greater day in the future.

The reference to the “branch” clearly has the Messiah in view. This continues in verses in Zechariah 3:8 and 6:12 in 520 BC when Israel returns and King Jehoiachin’s grandson Zerubbabel is serving as governor of Judah for the recently risen Persian Empire. Jehoiachin and Zerubbabel will be in the genealogical record of Jesus in Luke 3:27 and Matthew 1:11-13.

A “branch” would be a technical term for the rightful heir, or the one who has grown out of the original tree or stump. In this case the branch is from the root of Jesse and makes connection with the Lord’s promise to David in 2 Samuel 7. The use of “branch” or “righteous branch” (also in Jer. 23:5) to refer to the rightful heir or the legitimate heir is not unique with Israel. The term is also found in use in a Phoenician inscription from around 250 BC found in Cyprus. Similarily the phrase “righteous branch” or “rightful shoot” is used in multiple texts from Mesopotamia and in an Assyrian inscription from around 730 BC.

Isaiah speaks of this branch as “a shoot” (Hb. choter) when he says in Isaiah 11:1,

“A shoot will come up from the stump of Jesse; from his roots a Branch
(Hb. netser, or “sprout”) will bear fruit.” 

Isaiah then goes on to describe Jesus, the Messiah (Isaiah 11:1-10 as in 2 Sam. 23:5).

While the people of Jeremiah's generation watched their lives, culture and city crumble, Jeremiah provided comfort with words that spoke of the coming Messiah who would deliver people from their sinful hearts and from the oppression that was part of this dark world. Those with faith could hear and receive the comfort offered by Jeremiah. But, those who had rejected Jeremiah's previous words of warning and continued to live in a state of rebellion towards the Lord, could not be comforted with Jeremiah's words of promise and hope.

  Christian Quote from Church History

“The Lord said to Gideon,
‘Go in the strength you have.’
There was no new promise or anointing or move of God, simply a reminder.”

Chalal (Hb) - pollute (Eng) - The Hebrew word chalal means “to pollute”, “to defile”, “to profane”,
and “to begin”.  Leviticus 21:4 provides an example of chalal being used to refer to ritual pollution
or defilement caused by contacting a dead body.
In Genesis 4:26 the root word chalal is used to mean “to begin.”


The city of Mareshah (Moresheth-Gath) in the hill country of Judah (map here) was excavated in 1900. Mareshah was the hometown of Micah (Micah 1:1) and Eliezer (2 Chronicles 20:37). Rehoboam is said to have fortified this city
(2 Chronicles 11:5-10)
after Shishak invaded
Judah from Egypt.
