[ 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 15, the LORD tells Jeremiah that even if Moses and Samuel prayed for the people he would still send them to death, to the sword, to famine, and (as above) to captivity (1-2).
     Four kinds of evil are coming upon them: the sword to slay, dogs to tear, and fowls and beasts to devour and destroy (3).
     They will be scattered throughout the earth because they followed Manasseh in his sins; no one will have pity on them; they have forsaken God so he will destroy them without relenting as in the past; they will be scattered, bereaved of children, and destroyed; their widows will increase beyond measure; they will be spoiled at noonday - suddenly, and with terror (4-9).
     Upon hearing these words Jeremiah expressed his feelings of woe and frustration at the contentions he faced (10).
     In reply the LORD said it would be well with Jeremiah, and the enemy king, though invincible (v. 12), would treat him well -- fulfilled in Jeremiah 39:11-18 -- (11-12).
     But those who sinned against the LORD would lose all their treasures and go into exile (13-14).
     Then Jeremiah again pleads for help and revenge upon his persecutors, reminding the LORD of his love for the LORD's words, of his delight in being called by his name, of his avoidance of "the assembly of the mockers" (compare Psalm 1), and of the persecution he endured for the sake of the LORD (15-18).
     In reply, God tells him to repent of his impatience and frustration with God and return again to God in purity of heart, and he will make Jeremiah a fenced and brazen wall; no one will prevail against him; and the LORD will redeem him "out of the hand of the terrible." In short, God had made him strong, and God would keep him strong if he strengthened himself in God rather than believing in discouragement (19-21).

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)

f). The LORD's Sixth Word (Continued): Drought, Sword, Famine, Plague, Death, & Captivity are Coming (14:1 - 15:21)

     1 Then said the LORD unto me, Though Moses and Samuel stood before me, yet my mind could not be toward this people: cast them out of my sight, and let them go forth. 2 And it shall come to pass, if they say unto thee, whither shall we go forth? then thou shalt tell them, Thus saith the LORD;

Such as are for death,
to death;
and such as are for the sword,
to the sword;
and such as are for the famine,
to the famine;
and such as are for the captiviy,
to the captiviy.

     3 And I will appoint over them four kinds, saith the LORD: [this] the sword to slay, and the dogs to tear, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the earth, to devour and destroy. 4 And I will cause them to be removed into all kingdoms of the earth, because of Manasseh the son of Hezekiah king of Judah, for that which he did in Jerusalem.

5 For who shall have pity upon thee, O Jerusalem?
or who shall bemoan thee?
or who shall go aside to ask how thou doest?
6 Thou hast forsaken me,
saith the LORD,
thou art gone backward:
therefore will I stretch out [this] my hand against thee,
and destroy thee;
I am weary with repenting.
7 And I will fan them with a fan in the gates of the land;
I will bereave them of children,
I will destroy [this] my people,
since they return not from their ways.
8 Their widows are increased to me above the sand of the seas:
I have bought upon them
against the mother of the young men
a spoiler at noonday:
I have caused him to fall upon it suddenly,
and terrors upon the city.
9 She that hath borne seven languisheth:
she hath given up the ghost;
her sun is gone down while it was yet day:
she hath been ashamed and confounded:
and the residue of them
will I deliver to the sword before their enemies,
saith the LORD.

     10 Woe is me, my mother, that thou hast borne me a man of strife and a man of contention to the whole earth! I have neither lent on usury, nor men have lent to me on usury; yet every one of them doth curse me. 11 The LORD said, Verily it shall be well with thy remnant; verily I will cause [this] the enemy to entreat thee well in the time of evil and in the time of affliction. 12 Shall iron break the northern iron and the steel?

     13 Thy substance and thy treasures will I give to the spoil without price, and that for all thy sins, even in all thy borders. 14 And I will make thee to pass with thine enemies into a land which thou knowest not: for a fire kindled in mine anger, which shall burn upon you.

15 O LORD,
thou knowest:
remember me,
and visit me,
and revenge me of my persecutors;
take me not away in thy longsuffering [slowness of your anger]:
know that for thy sake I have suffered rebuke.
16 Thy words were found,
and I did eat them;
and thy word was unto me
the joy and rejoicing of mine heart:
for I am called by thy name,
O LORD God of hosts.
17 I sat not in the assembly of the mockers,
nor rejoiced;
I sat alone because of [from before] thy hand:
for thou hast filled me with indignation.
18 Why is my pain perpetual,
and my wound incurable,
which refuseth to be healed?
wilt thou be [becoming will you become] unto me
as a liar, and as waters that fail [false waters, not true]?

19 Therefore thus saith the LORD,
If thou return,
then will I bring thee again,
and thou shalt stand before me:
and if thou take forth the precious from the vile,
thou shalt be as my mouth:
let them return unto thee;
but return not thou unto them.
20 And I will make thee unto this people
a fenced brasen wall:
and they shall fight against thee,
but they shall not prevail against thee:
for I am with thee
to save thee
and to deliver thee,
saith the LORD.
21 And I will deliver thee out of the hand of the wicked,
and I will redeem thee out of the hand of the terrible.
