[ Illustration: Today's painting depicts a wedding. But the LORD forbade Jeremiah to have a wedding of his own; and he forbade him to have children. He also forbade him to participate in the wedding ceremonies of others. This was to spare Jeremiah from the anguish that would come upon the men, women, and children of the land. They would be bereaved of their families. ]
[ 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 16, the LORD tells Jeremiah not to take a wife and not to have sons or daughters in the land of Judah because whole families will die grievous deaths by sword and famine and will lie unburied as food for the birds and beasts (1-4).
Moreover, the LORD tells Jeremiah not to mourn for them because he has taken his peace, his lovingkindness, and his mercies from them; and they will die and be unburied; and no one will grieve for them, nor will they console one another (5-7).
Nor, says the LORD, should Jeremiah rejoice with them in feasting or in wedding ceremonies (8-9).
When the people ask Jeremiah why the LORD said such things, Jeremiah is to tell them that it is for the sins of their fathers and for their own sins which are worse than the sins of their fathers; therefore, they will be cast out of the land and serve other gods; and the LORD will show them no favor (10-13).
But, says the LORD, the time will come when he will deliver them from that exile; and they will no longer speak about the deliverance from Egypt (in the south), but of the deliverance from their captivity in the north (14-15).
But first, says the LORD, he will send fishers and hunters to pull them out of their land because of their iniquities and because they defiled his land (16-18).
In reply, Jeremiah acknowledges that the Gentiles will come to the LORD and be converted from their idolatry (19-20).
And the LORD tells Jeremiah that he will cause "them" (the Gentiles, and probably the Jews) to know his power and his name, which is "the LORD" (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.

Surely our fathers have inherited

20 Shall a man make gods unto himself,
and they are no gods?
