So Much Better
Repentance leads to better results
Jeremiah 31:19 (KJV)
Surely after that I was turned, I repented; and after that I was instructed, I smote upon my thigh: I was ashamed, yea, even confounded, because I did bear the reproach of my youth.
Vitally important to the text is the context of hopefulness through the promised Saviour. He is referenced both in verse 15 and in verse 22. These verses, and their fulfillment in Christ, prove this passage to be Messianic.
