Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 31:16

_ _ thy work — thy parental weeping for thy children [Rosenmuller]. Thine affliction in the loss of thy children, murdered for Christ’s sake, shall not be fruitless to thee, as was the case in thy giving birth to the “child of thy sorrow,” Benjamin. Primarily, also, thy grief shall not be perpetual: the exiles shall return, and the land be inhabited again [Calvin].

_ _ come again — (Hosea 1:11).
