Fear thou not, O Jacob my servant, saith the LORD: for I am with thee; for I will make a full end of all the nations whither I have driven thee: but I will not make a full end of thee, but correct thee in measure; yet will I not leave thee wholly unpunished.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

46:28 I am with thee. Despite all of Jeremiah’s prophecies of calamity and exile on Israel, he repeatedly assured the people that God had not forsaken them.

46:28 full end. This remarkable prophecy has been fulfilled again and again through the long history of Israel’s dispersion and persecution, with numerous examples (Assyria, Edom, etc.), and it is still being fulfilled today (Nazi Germany, Soviet Union, etc.).

46:28 correct thee in measure. This prophecy and similar prophecies throughout the Bible constitute one of the most remarkable of all prophecies. Despite millennia of exile and unparalleled persecution, the people and the nation of Israel have survived, even today ranking as one of the most strategically important nations on earth.
