Theological question of the day

This one’s for all you Bible scholars out there.

God has had me stuck on this verse for awhile. I think I might be getting a feel for what it means, but I’d like to know – what does it mean to you?

Jeremiah 31:22

22 How long will you wander,
O unfaithful daughter?
The LORD will create a new thing on earth—
a woman will surround[b] a man.

(footnote: Or will go about seeking; or will protect)

I look forward to your thoughts!

  1. I think it means that Israel is a wandering woman, the Lord is her male authority, and after she wanders for awhile she’ll return to him.

  2. After our talk and thinking about it and reading it again, I am pretty sure that from the surrounding chapter it is about Mary and the Virgin birth, and that one day even Israel will turn and seek her King and Savior Jesus.
