Jeremiah 23 in Context

“Behold, the days are coming, declares the LORD, when I will raise up for David a righteous Branch (contra Zedekiah, cf. Jer 21:1-10; Jer 34), and he shall reign as king and deal wisely (contra Jehoahaz, cf. 22:11-17), and shall execute justice (contra Jehoiakim, cf. 22:18-23) and righteousness (contra Jehoiachin, cf. 22:24-30) in the land. In his days Judah will be saved, and Israel will dwell securely. And this is the name by which he will be called: ‘The LORD is our righteousness'”
Jer 23:1-8
