PIETERSEN, Doniwen. YHWH's mouthpiece to the exiles: a Jeremianic turn of hope. STJ [online]. 2021, vol.7, n.1, pp.1-24. ISSN 2413-9467.

This article seeks to make a contribution to the discourse on how the difference between the two versions of the book of Jeremiah as it pertains to two bracketed texts, e.g. Jer. 25:11-12 - Jer. 46:27-28 illustrate a regard of hope on the end of the Exile. Does the Masoretic Text (MT) have a different perspective on the idea of hope, or do both the MT and Septuagint (LXX) share a similar position on this? Moreover, this article attempts to characterise the claim of the MT versus the LXX and tries to understand these texts in light of the above-mentioned text-corpus in its earliest development, but also to foreground this idea of hope within a theological analysis of Jeremiah 29:1-32.

Keywords : Jeremiah; LXX; MT; YHWH; exile; Jeremianic turn; hope.
