4 Then the word of the Lord came to me: 5 “This is what the Lord, the God of Israel, says: ‘Like these good figs, I regard as good the exiles from Judah, whom I sent away from this place to the land of the Babylonians. 6 My eyes will watch over them for their good, and I will bring them back to this land. I will build them up and not tear them down; I will plant them and not uproot them. 7 I will give them a heart to know me, that I am the Lord. They will be my people, and I will be their God, for they will return to me with all their heart. (Jeremiah 24:4-7)

The Babylonian Empire was created in the Book of Genesis as a result of the people’s pride and rebellion against the Lord. In an attempt to make a name for themselves and to become God, they started work on The Tower of Babel. God caused confusion among the people because of this, causing them to speak in different languages.

Babel means confusion.

I myself have lived in this land of confusion, hopelessly exiled in Babylon. I myself have been delivered by the Lord as well; He brought me home, returning me to Him—with my whole heart.
