“Come, let us return to the LORD; for he has torn us, that he may heal us; he has struck us down, and he will bind us up. After two days he will revive us; on the third day he will raise us up, that we may live before him. Let us know; let us press on to know the LORD; his going out is sure as the dawn; he will come to us as the showers, as the spring rains that water the earth.”
For this question, I want to know if this could be a prophesy about Jesus assuming that it is a quotation by some group in Judah who was hoping for deliverance despite not changing their sinful behaviour. Can hypothetical words placed in the mouths of an unrepentant, overly-hopeful people be interpreted as prophesy?
