6  In his days Yehuda shall be delivered and Yisrael shall dwell secure. And this is the name by which he shall be called: “Hashem is our Vindicator.”

ו  בְּיָמָיו תִּוָּשַׁע יְהוּדָה וְיִשְׂרָאֵל יִשְׁכֹּן לָבֶטַח וְזֶה־שְּׁמוֹ אֲ‍שֶׁר־יִקְרְאוֹ יְהֹוָה צִדְקֵנוּ׃

 23:6   He shall be called: “Hashem is our Vindicator”  

After comparing the evil leadership of the people to wicked shepherds that cause the sheep to scatter, Yirmiyahu describes the ideal leader, a descendant of David. In his days, the exiled northern tribes of the kingdom of Yisrael will reunite with the kingdom of Yehuda and together they will dwell safely in the Land of Israel. The leader will be given the name Hashem tzidkaynu (השם צדקינו), ‘Hashem is our Vindicator.’ The root of the word tzidkaynu is tzedek (צדק), ‘righteousness,’ indicating the ideals through which he will lead the nation. Yirmiyahu gives the same name to Yerushalayim (33:16), representing the values for which the rebuilt city will be known around the world.
