God’s People Are Cast into Exile

Jeremiah 52:16-30

This is the number of the people whom Nebuchadrezzar took into exile: in the seventh year, three thousand twenty-three Judeans; in the eighteenth year of Nebuchadrezzar he took into exile from Jerusalem eight hundred thirty-two persons; in the twenty-third year of Nebuchadrezzar, Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard took into exile of the Judeans seven hundred forty-five persons; all the persons were four thousand six hundred.

Jeremiah 52:28-30 NRSV

Although their bodies had been taken captive, they still had a sense of who they were. Remembering who you are will keep you going in times of challenge.
