Wesley's Notes for Jeremiah 31:11


31:11 Hath redeemed - God will as certainly do it, as if he had already done it. In their deliverance as well from Babylon as Egypt, they were types of the deliverance of God's people, by Christ; as well as in their entering into Canaan, they were types of the saints, entering into heaven.

    In verse 31 a new covenant was foretold. The nation of Israel had broken the Law covenant so a new covenant was foretold.
  • Bobby Earl Epinger
    The Almighty God made the first Covenant with Israel and Jeremiah 31:31 clearly states that He will make The New Covenant with Israel also. Because Salvation comes from and is of the Jewish people through our Savior Jesus, Who is The Christ and Savior not only in this world, but also in the world that is to come.
