[ 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 27, the LORD told Jeremiah to make a yoke with attachment straps and put it on his neck, and likewise to give yokes to the ambassadors of the kings of Edom, Moab, Ammon, Tyre, and Zidon to send to their kings (1-3).
     With the yokes, the LORD sent a message to the five kings, telling them that the LORD made the earth and gives it to anyone he chooses; and he has given it and the beasts of the field to Nebuchadnezzar and his son, and his son's son (4-7).
     Moreover, said the LORD, he would punish with sword, famine, and pestilence, any nation which would not serve Nebuchadnezzar; therefore they should not listen to any prophecy which promised deliverance; but the nations which put their neck under Nebuchadnezzar's yoke would remain in their own land (8-11).
     Jeremiah also delivered this message to Zedekiah, asking him to avoid the harm that was coming and to quit listening to the lies of his prophets (12-15).
     Also Jeremiah spoke to the priests and all the people, telling them not to believe the prophets who told them that the vessels of the LORD's house would be returned shortly to the Temple; instead the vessels which were still in the Temple, which Nebuchadnezzar did not take in his previous incursion, would also be taken and remain in Babylon until the LORD judged Babylon, as in the painting above, and sent them back (16-22).

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 In the beginning of the reign of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king of Judah came this word unto Jeremiah from the LORD, saying, 2 Thus saith the LORD to me; Make thee bonds and yokes, and put them upon thy neck, 3 And send them to the king of Edom, and to the king of Moab, and to the king of the Ammonites, and to the king of Tyrus, and to the king of Zidon, by the hand of the messengers which come to Jerusalem unto Zedekiah king of Judah; 4 And command them to say unto their masters, Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Thus shall ye say unto your masters; 5 I have made [this] the earth, [this] the man and the beast that are upon [upon the face of] the ground, by my great power and by my outstretched arm, and have given it unto whom it seemed meet unto me. 6 And now have I given [this] all these lands into the hand of Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon, my servant; and [this] the beasts of the field have I given him also to serve him. 7 And all nations shall serve him, and his son, and his son's son, until the very time of his land come: and then many nations and great kings shall serve themselves of him.

     8 And it shall come to pass, that the nation and kingdom which will not serve [this] the same Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon, and that will not put [this] their neck under the yoke of the king of Babylon, that nation will I punish, saith the LORD, with the sword, and with the famine, and with the pestilence, until I have consumed them by his hand. 9 Therefore hearken not ye to your prophets, nor to your diviners, nor to your dreamers, nor to your enchanters, nor to your sorcerers, which speak unto you, saying, Ye shall not serve [this] the king of Babylon: 10 For they prophesy a lie unto you, to remove you far from your land; and that I should drive you out, and ye should perish. 11 But the nations that bring [this] their neck under the yoke of the king of Babylon, and serve him, those will I let remain still in their own land, saith the LORD; and they shall till it, and dwell therein.

     12 I spake also to Zedekiah king of Judah according to all these words, saying, Bring [this] your necks under the yoke of the king of Babylon, and serve him and his people, and live. 13 Why will ye die, thou and thy people, by the sword, by the famine, and by the pestilence, as the LORD hath spoken against the nation that will not serve [this] the king of Babylon? 14 Therefore hearken not unto the words of the prophets that speak unto you, saying, Ye shall not serve [this] the king of Babylon: for they prophesy a lie unto you. 15 For I have not sent them, saith the LORD, yet they prophesy a lie in my name; that I might drive you out, and that ye might perish, ye, and the prophets that prophesy unto you.

     16 Also I spake to the priests and to all this people, saying, Thus saith the LORD; Hearken not to the words of your prophets that prophesy unto you, saying, Behold, the vessels of the LORD'S house shall now shortly be bought again from Babylon: for they prophesy a lie unto you. 17 Hearken not unto them; serve [this] the king of Babylon, and live: wherefore should this city be laid waste? 18 But if they be prophets, and if the word of the LORD be with them, let them now make intercession to the LORD of hosts, that the vessels which are left in the house of the LORD, and in the house of the king of Judah, and at Jerusalem, go not to Babylon. 19 For thus saith the LORD of hosts concerning the pillars, and concerning the sea, and concerning the bases, and concerning the residue of the vessels that remain in this city, 20 Which Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon took not, when he carried away captive [this] Jeconiah the son of Jehoiakim king of Judah from Jerusalem to Babylon, and all the nobles of Judah and Jerusalem; 21 Yea, thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, concerning the vessels that remain in the house of the LORD, and in the house of the king of Judah and of Jerusalem; 22 They shall be carried to Babylon, and there shall they be until the day that I visit them, saith the LORD; then will I bring them up, and restore them to this place.
