After two days he will revive us.
On the third day he will raise us up,
and we will live before him. Bible

“After two days…on the third day.” This is an idiom meaning after a little while. Some of the Israelites were confident, as they should have been, that if they returned to Yahweh, He would bless them. It might not happen immediately, but they were confident it would happen shortly. Sadly, Israel never did return to Yahweh, and they were conquered by the Assyrians and deported from the land of Israel (2 Kings 17:5-23).
