I'm doing a study on Jeremiah 33:14-16 for this Sunday. I'm attempting to look up more information about "the promise I made to the house of Israel and the house of Judah" mentioned in v 14. Of course I know there are plenty of times when God reiterates his promises to the ancestors of the kingdoms of Israel and Judah, but I'm wondering if there is some particular place where he promises something to both the house of Israel and the house of Judah after the kingdoms were divided, or if they are both merely identifying themselves separately as the heirs of the original promise.

How would I go about searching for this? I'm aware of the Promises in the Bible dataset, but it doesn't seem to give me a way to search for the speaker or recipients of a promise.

The example given in the documentation is:

{Label Promise WHERE Fulfillment ~ <Event The Assyrians withdraw from Jerusalem> AND Theme ~ <PreachingTheme God: Love> AND Verb Class ~ Caring and Empathizing}

One initial search idea is

{Label Promise} INTERSECTS <Person God>

whose results tend to be God speaking

Jer 33:14 has <Sense people ⇔ house>  for Israel and Judah so modified search

<Sense people> WITHIN 8 WORDS <Person God> INTERSECTS  {Label Promise}

Note: initial search expansion had Fuzzy Bible Search section with results for WITHIN (so changed search order to find people NEAR God that intersects Label Promise). If desired, Label Promise could be filtered more. Searching for <Sense people> includes <Sense people ⇔ house> plus many more (as shown in Bible Sense Lexicon).

Keep Smiling 4 Jesus :):
<Sense people> WITHIN 8 WORDS <Person God> INTERSECTS {Label Promise}

Another search suggestion is replacing <Sense people> that includes many different groups with a Person tagging for Israel and Judah

<Person Remnant of Israel> WITHIN 8 WORDS <Person God> INTERSECTS {Label Promise}
