My sleep had been very sweet. 27 “The time will come,” says the LORD, “when I will greatly increase the population and multiply the number of cattle here in Israel and Judah. 28 In the past I uprooted and tore down this nation.

But in the future I will plant it and build it up,” says the LORD. 29 “The people will no longer quote this proverb: ‘The parents eat sour grapes, but their children’s mouths pucker at the taste.’ 30 All people will die for their own sins — those who eat the sour grapes will be the ones whose mouths will pucker. 31 “The day will come,” says the LORD, “when I will make a new covenant with the people of Israel and Judah.
