     [ Illustration: Today's painting symbolizes Zion (v. 2), which the LORD compares to "a comely and delicate woman." Zion is self-absorbed and unaware (v. 14) that evil is coming upon her. ]


[ I will again be working through the Scriptures from Genesis to Revelation. I will be adding links, resources, images, and the like, upgrading the former work-through which began with the 2013-10-12 posting which can be found, along with the full Genesis to Revelation postings, in the Archive Page. Postings will be at midnight Eastern Time, as I am able. However, no chapters will be skipped, even though a posting may be late. And all postings will be housed in the Archive Page. ]

     Explanation: In Jeremiah 6, a call goes forth to flee from Jerusalem because evil is coming from the north upon Zion which is like a "comely and delicate woman" (or a "fair pasture"); and she will be surrounded by war tents and attacked by night (1-5).
     The LORD tells her enemies to raise a siege against her because she is filled with oppression; and wickedness flows from her like a fountain; violence, spoil, grief, and wounds are in her; and the LORD warns her that he will make her desolate and uninhabited (6-8).
     Jerusalem, says the LORD, will be thoroughly gleaned like a vine; but they will not take warning because they despise the LORD's word; therefore the LORD will pour out his fury upon them; and husbands and wives, the aged and the very aged, will be taken; their houses, their fields, and their wives will be given to others because of their covetousness and the lies of their prophets and priests who heal Zion's hurt slightly by saying "Peace, peace; when there is no peace;" but they are not ashamed of their abominations; therefore they will "fall among them that fall" (9-15).
     The LORD called them back to the old ways, but they refused; so he refused their incense and offerings; and he says he will put a stumbling block before them; and they will fall and perish (16-21).
     A nation will come from the north - cruel, merciless, and armed for war; when Zion hears about it she will become feeble; and aguish will seize her like a woman in travail; her inhabitants will not leave the city for fear and sword; they will make a bitter lamentation in sackcloth and ashes; yet they revolt and slander; they are hardened and corrupt; the fires of judgment will not refine them, for they are reprobate silver; and the LORD has rejected them (22-30).

PLEASE NOTE: Use the resources on this and other sites thoughtfully, particularly the commentaries and encyclopedias. I have attempted to list conservative, scholarly resources. However, some providers use liberal or liberal-influenced commentaries such as the Cambridge Bible for Schools and Colleges (in Bible Hub). Such commentaries are undoubtedly included by the provider for the wealth of useful information and comments which they provide. By consulting several commentaries, it should be fairly easy to sort out the wheat from the chaff. If, however, you would like personal assistance, write to me at AD LIB ARTS EMAIL.

1. Prophecies for Judah + Jerusalem's Fall & the Aftermath

(1:1 - 45:5 ) - 627 - 560 B.C., Israel

B. Prophecies and Events in Judah and Jerusalem (2-45)

1). Until the Fall of Jerusalem (2-39)

b). The LORD's Second Word (Continued): Repent Before the Coming Judgment (3:6 - 6:30)

6 For thus hath the LORD of hosts said,
Hew ye down trees,
and cast a mount against Jerusalem:
this is the city to be visited;
she is wholly oppression in the midst of her.
7 As a fountain casteth out her waters,
so she casteth out her wickedness:
violence and spoil is heard in her;
before me continually is grief and wounds.
8 Be thou instructed,
O Jerusalem,
lest my soul depart from thee;
lest I make thee desolate,
a land not inhabited.

9 Thus saith the LORD of hosts,
They shall throughly glean [gleaning they shall glean]
the remnant of Israel as a vine:
turn back thine hand
as a grapegatherer into the baskets.
10 To whom shall I speak,
and give warning,
that they may hear?
their ear is uncircumcised,
and they cannot hearken:
the word of the LORD
is unto them a reproach;
they have no delight in it.
11 Therefore I am full of the fury of the LORD;
I am weary with holding in:
I will pour it out upon the children abroad,
and upon the assembly of young men together:
for even the husband with the wife shall be taken,
the aged with him that is full of days.
12 And their houses shall be turned unto others,
with their fields and wives together:
for I will stretch out [this]
my hand upon the inhabitants of the land,
saith the LORD.
13 For from the least of them even unto the greatest of them
every one is given to covetousness;
and from the prophet even unto the priest
every one dealeth falsely.
14 They have healed also [this]
the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly,
Peace, peace;
when there is no [nothing of] peace.
15 Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination?
they were not at all ashamed [being ashamed they are ashamed],
neither could they blush:
therefore they shall fall among them that fall:
at the time that I visit them
they shall be cast down,
saith the LORD.

16 Thus saith the LORD,
Stand ye in the ways,
and see,
and ask for the old paths,
where is the good way,
and walk therein,
and ye shall find rest for your souls.
But they said,
We will not walk therein.
17 Also I set watchmen over you,
Hearken to the sound of the trumpet.
But they said,
We will not hearken.
18 Therefore hear,
ye nations,
and know,
O congregation, [this]
what is among them.
19 Hear,
O earth:
I will bring evil upon this people,
even the fruit of their thoughts,
because they have not hearkened unto my words,
nor to my law,
but rejected it.
20 To what purpose cometh there to me
incense from Sheba,
and the sweet cane
from a far country?
your burnt offerings are not acceptable,
nor your sacrifices sweet unto me.
21 Therefore thus saith the LORD,
I will lay stumblingblocks before this people,
and the fathers and the sons together
shall fall upon them;
the neighbour and his friend shall perish.

22 Thus saith the LORD,
a people cometh from the north country,
and a great nation shall be raised from the sides of the earth.
23 They shall lay hold on bow and spear;
they are cruel,
and have no mercy;
their voice roareth like the sea;
and they ride upon horses,
set in array
as men for war against thee, O daughter of Zion.
24 We have heard [this] the fame thereof:
our hands wax feeble:
anguish hath taken hold of us,
and pain,
as of a woman in travail.
25 Go not forth into the field,
nor walk by the way;
for the sword of the enemy
and fear
is on every side.
26 O daughter of my people,
gird thee with sackcloth,
and wallow thyself in ashes:
make thee mourning,
as for an only son,
most bitter lamentation:
for the spoiler shall suddenly come upon us.

27 I have set thee for a tower and a fortress among my people,
that thou mayest know and try [this] their way.
28 They are all grievous revolters,
walkingwith slanders:
they are brass and iron;
they are all corrupters.
29 The bellows are burned,
the lead is consumed of the fire;
the founder melteth in vain:
for the wicked are not plucked away.
30 Reprobate silver shall men call them,
because the LORD hath rejected them.
