Jeremiah 10:1,2 Hear you the word which the LORD speaks unto you, O house of Israel. Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven, for the heathen are dismayed at them.

Jeremiah 10:3,4 For the customs of the people are vain. For one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe. They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not..(and then sing merry christmas tunes:.Galatians 4:1-11)

Jeremiah 10:5 They are upright as the palm tree, but speak not. They must needs be borne.(perhaps they have yet to be born), because they cannot go.(move). Be not afraid of them, for they cannot do evil, neither also is it in them to do good.

Jeremiah 10:6 Forasmuch as there is none like unto thee, o LORD; thou art great and thy name is great in might..(God's greatness)

Jeremiah 10:7 Who would not fear thee, O King of nations? for to you does it appertain. Forasmuch as among all the wise men of the nations and in all their kingdoms, there is none like unto you.

Jeremiah 10:8 But they are altogether brutish and foolish. The stock is a doctrine of vanities.

Barnes Notes:."Rather, the instruction of idols is a piece of wood. That is what they are themselves and 'ex nihilo nihil fit' meaning 'from nothingness, nothing is made'.

Jeremiah 10:9 Silver spread into plates is brought from Tarshish, and gold from Uphaz, the work of the workman and of the hands of the founder. Blue and purple is their clothing.(made from expensive dyes, only the wealthy could afford to wear). They are all the work of cunning men.(done by the best artisans of society).

Jeremiah 10:10 But the LORD is the true God, he is the living God and an everlasting king. At his wrath the earth shall tremble and the nations shall not be able to abide his indignation.

Jeremiah 10:11 Thus shall you say unto them, The gods.(what gods were these?).that have not made the heavens and the earth, even they shall perish from the earth and from under these heavens.

Jeremiah 10:12 He has made the earth by his power, he hath established the world by his wisdom and has stretched out the heavens by his discretion.

Jeremiah 10:13 When he utters his voice, there is a multitude of waters in the heavens and he causes the vapors to ascend from the ends of the earth. He makes lightnings with rain and brings forth the wind out of his treasures.

Jeremiah 10:14 Every man is brutish in his knowledge. Every founder is confounded by the graven image. For his molten image is falsehood and there is no breath in them..(he or she believes the things they worship {what does worship mean?} are good for them, not really thinking of the temporality of life and how so many things are simply time wasters) 

Jeremiah 10:15 They are vanity and the work of errors. In the time of their visitation they perish.

Jeremiah 10:15 They are vanity and the work of errors.(people don't do things that they think they are in error about, so obviously his intuition has dried up {'dried up' is original for word 'confounded' in verse 14 above} otherwise he would not have started in the direction he took in the first place). In the time of their visitation they perish..(they thought that by giving attention to ego things, they were in line with purpose of the god they believed in and would receive benefits from him)

Jeremiah 10:22 Behold, the noise of the bruit.(a rumor).is come, and a great commotion out of the north country, to make the cities of Judah desolate and a den of dragons.

Jeremiah 10:23 O LORD, I know that the way of man is not in himself. It is not in man that walks to direct his steps..(so it is important to be in line with the laws the Great Infinite One made if one is to expect anything:.James 1:6-8).(*)

Jeremiah 11:3 And say you unto them, Thus says the LORD God of Israel; Cursed be the man that obeys not the words of this covenant, 

Jeremiah 11:4 Which I commanded your fathers in the day that I brought them forth out of the land of Egypt, from the iron furnace, saying, Obey my voice and do them, according to all which I command you. So shall you be my people and I will be your God.

Jeremiah 11:5 That I may perform the oath which I have sworn unto your fathers, to give them a land flowing with milk and honey, as it is this day. Then answered I and said, So be it, O LORD.

Jeremiah 11:6 Then the LORD said unto me, Proclaim all these words in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem, saying, Hear you the words of this covenant and do them. 

Jeremiah 11:7 For I earnestly protested unto your fathers in the day that I brought them up out of the land of Egypt, even unto this day, rising early and protesting, saying, Obey my voice.

Jeremiah 11:8 Yet they obeyed not, nor inclined their ear.(*), but walked every one in the imagination of their evil heart.(Isaiah 30:10). Therefore I will bring upon them all the words of this covenant, which I commanded them to do, but they did them not. 

Jeremiah 11:9-13 And the LORD said unto me, A conspiracy is found among the men of Judah and among the inhabitants of Jerusalem. They are turned back to the iniquities of their forefathers, which refused to hear my words and they went after other gods to serve them. The house of Israel and the house of Judah have broken my covenant which I made with their fathers. Therefore thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will bring evil upon them, which they shall not be able to escape and though they shall cry unto me, I will not hearken unto them. Then shall the cities of Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem go and cry unto the gods unto whom they offer incense, but they shall not save them at all in the time of their trouble. For according to the number of thy cities were thy gods, O Judah and according to the number of the streets of Jerusalem have ye set up altars to that shameful thing, even altars to burn incense unto Baal.

Jeremiah 11:9-13 And the LORD said unto me, A conspiracy is found among the men of Judah and among the inhabitants of Jerusalem.(the principles can be applied anytime in present day history as well, anywhere they fit). They are turned back to the iniquities of their forefathers, which refused to hear my words and they went after other gods to serve them. The house of Israel and the house of Judah have broken my covenant which I made with their fathers. Therefore thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will bring evil upon them, which they shall not be able to escape and though they shall cry unto me, I will not hearken unto them.(not immediately, but later; people are here to learn lessons). Then shall the cities of Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem go and cry unto the gods unto whom they offer incense.(what are those gods today but money and power, most often used to maintain selfish advantage of the few over the many), but they shall not save them at all in the time of their trouble. For according to the number of thy cities were thy gods, O Judah and according to the number of the streets of Jerusalem have ye set up altars to that shameful thing, even altars to burn incense unto Baal

Jeremiah 11:14 Therefore pray not you for this people, neither lift up a cry or prayer for them, for I will not hear them in the time that they cry unto me for their trouble.

Jeremiah 11:18,19 And the LORD has given me knowledge of it and now I know it. Then you showed me their doings. But I was like a lamb or an ox that is brought to the slaughter and I knew not that they had devised devices against me, saying, Let us destroy the tree with the fruit thereof and let us cut him off from the land of the living, that his name may be no more remembered.(the low consciousness of man can be wicked:.Isaiah 32:7; Psalms 10:2,3).

Jeremiah 11:20 But, O LORD of hosts, that judgest righteously, that tries the reins and the heart, let me see thy vengeance on them, for unto thee have I revealed my cause.

Jeremiah 11:22 Therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts, Behold, I will punish.(original is 'attend to'; that is, it is an automatic thing that what evil is in one's mind will come back upon that person amplified to the extent of one's involvment in evil; it is a mental thing, in that those steeped in evil ways, have steeped evil ways come back onto them).them. The young men shall die by the sword; their sons and their daughters shall die by famine.

Jeremiah 12:1 Righteous are you, O LORD, when I plead with thee. Yet let me talk with you of your judgments. Wherefore does the way of the wicked prosper? Wherefore are all they happy that deal very treacherously?

Jeremiah 12:2 You have planted them, yea, they have taken root. They grow, yea, they bring forth fruit. You are near in their mouth and far from their reins.(they knew God {Jeremiah 44:15,16} but preferred their own low consciousness ways:.Psalms 7:9; Romans 1:21).

Jeremiah 12:3 But you, O LORD, know me. You have seen me and tried mine heart toward you. Pull them out like sheep for the slaughter and prepare them for the day of slaughter..(Jeremiah delivered warnings from God to these people, but regretfully, this was the result: Jeremiah 44:16,17).

Jeremiah 12:4 How long shall the land mourn and the herbs of every field wither, for the wickedness of them that dwell therein? The beasts are consumed and the birds, because they said, He shall not see our last end.

Jeremiah 12:5 If you have run with the footmen and they have wearied you, then how can you contend with horses? And if in the land of peace, wherein thou trustedst, they wearied you, then how will you do in the swelling of Jordan?

Jeremiah 12:6,7 For even thy brethren and the house of your father, even they have dealt treacherously with you; yea, they have called a multitude after you. Believe them not, though they speak fair words unto you. I have forsaken mine house, I have left mine heritage. I have given the dearly beloved of my soul into the hand of her enemies.

Jeremiah 12:8 My heritage is unto me as a lion in the forest that cries out against me. Therefore have I hated it.

Jeremiah 12:9 Mine heritage is unto me as a speckled bird, the birds round about are against her. Come you, assemble all the beasts of the field, come to devour.

Jeremiah 12:10 Many pastors have destroyed my vineyard, they have trodden my portion under foot, they have made my pleasant portion a desolate wilderness. 

Jeremiah 12:11 They have made it desolate and being desolate it mourns unto me. The whole land is made desolate, because no man lays it to heart.(no one cares what is causing desolation both in people's lives and the environment supporting mankind and most do nothing to turn it around; what could be done to turn to God again?).

Jeremiah 12:12 The spoilers are come upon all high places through the wilderness, for the sword of the LORD shall devour from the one end of the land even to the other end of the land and no flesh shall have peace.

Jeremiah 12:13 They have sown wheat, but shall reap thorns. They have put themselves to pain, but shall not profit and they shall be ashamed of your revenues because of the fierce anger of the LORD..(maybe they'll see the reason why their profits are decreasing and turn to God; how? why should they turn to God?.Lamentations 3:25 "The LORD is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeks him.")

Jeremiah 13:10 This evil people, which refuse to hear my words, which walk in the imagination of their heart.(Jeremiah 18:10-12).and walk after other gods.(which they did with gusto and which they do today), to serve them and to worship them, shall even be as this girdle, which is good for nothing.(John 15:5).

Jeremiah 13:16 Give glory to the LORD your God, before he cause darkness and before your feet stumble upon the dark mountains and while you look for light, he turn it into the shadow of death and make it gross darkness.

Jeremiah 13:17 But if you will not hear it, my soul shall weep in secret places for your pride and mine eye shall weep sore and run down with tears, because the LORD'S flock is carried away captive.

Jeremiah 13:18 Say unto the king and to the queen.(Creator wants the leaders to wake up), Humble yourselves, sit down, for your principalities shall come down, even the crown of your glory.

Jeremiah 13:19 The cities of the south shall be shut up and none shall open them. Judah shall be carried away captive all of it, it shall be wholly carried away captive.(2Chronicles 36:10).

Jeremiah 13:25 This is your lot.(laws set up so that you reap what you have sown), the portion of.(Isaiah 17:14).your measures from me, says the LORD, because you have forgotten me and trusted in falsehood.

Jeremiah 14:14 Then the LORD said unto me, The prophets prophesy.lies in my name. I sent them not, neither have I commanded them, neither spake unto them. They prophesy unto you a false vision and divination and a thing of nought and the deceit of their heart.

Showing that these prophets were of the false kind.

Jeremiah 14:15 Therefore thus saith the LORD concerning the prophets that prophesy in my name and I sent them not, yet they say, Sword and famine shall not be in this land; By sword and famine shall those prophets be consumed.

Jeremiah 14:16-22 And the people to whom they prophesy shall be cast out in the streets of Jerusalem because of the famine and the sword and they shall have none to bury them, them, their wives, nor their sons, nor their daughters, for I will pour their wickedness upon them. Therefore you shall say this word unto them; Let mine eyes run down with tears night and day and let them not cease, for the virgin daughter of my people is broken with a great breach, with a very grievous blow. If I go forth into the field, then behold the slain with the sword! and if I enter into the city, then behold them that are sick with famine! yea, both the prophet and the priest go about into a land that they know not. Have you utterly rejected Judah? has your soul lothed Zion? Why have you smitten us and there is no healing for us? We looked for peace and there is no good and for the time of healing and behold trouble! We acknowledge, O LORD, our wickedness and the iniquity of our fathers, for we have sinned against you

Jeremiah 14:21 Do not abhor us, for your name's sake, do not disgrace the throne of your glory. Remember, break not your covenant with us.

A covenant is an agreement; God's agreement today is that He has set up universal laws that affect us and He changes His plans as things go along.

Jeremiah 14:22 Are there any among the vanities of the Gentiles that can cause rain? or can the heavens give showers? Are not you he, O LORD our God? Therefore we will wait upon you, for you have made all these things.

Jeremiah 15:1 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.

Jeremiah 15:2 And it shall come to pass, if they say unto thee, Whither shall we go forth? then you shall tell them, Thus says 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 captivity, to the captivity..(some of you will die naturally, some by the sword, some as a result of famine and some will go into captivity:.2Chronicles 36:10)

Jeremiah 15:3-5 And I will appoint over them four kinds, says the LORD; 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. 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. For who shall have pity upon thee, O Jerusalem? or who shall bemoan thee? or who shall go aside to ask how thou do? 

Jeremiah 15:6 You have forsaken me, says the LORD, you are gone backward, therefore will I stretch out my hand against you and destroy you. I am weary with repenting.

God was weary with always changing his mind and then the people would go again (?) and do the same things, never changing; never changing changing because they didn't have the heart back then to change; they do today as more of the spirit has been made available.

Jeremiah 15:7 And I will fan them with a fan in the gates of the land; I will bereave them of children, I will destroy my people, since they return not from their ways..(Romans 1:21)

Jeremiah 15:13 Your substance and your treasures will I give to the spoil without price and that for all your sins, even in all your borders.

Jeremiah 15:14 And I will make you to pass with your enemies into a land which you know not, for a fire is kindled in mine anger, which shall burn upon you.

Jeremiah 15:15 O LORD, you know; remember me and visit me and revenge me of my persecutors. Take me not away in your longsuffering. Know that for your sake I have suffered rebuke.

Jeremiah 15:19 Therefore thus says the LORD, If you return, then will I bring you again and you shall stand before me and if you take forth the precious from the vile.(God is able to help you inculcate high consciousness things of life), you shall be as my mouth. Let them return unto you, but return not you unto them.

Jeremiah 15:20 And I will make you unto this people a fenced brasen.(brass).wall and they shall fight against you, but they shall not prevail against you, for I am with you to save you and to deliver you, says the LORD.

Jeremiah 15:21 And I will deliver you out of the hand of the wicked and I will redeem you out of the hand of the terrible..(protection)

Jeremiah 16:10 And it shall come to pass, when you shall show this people all these words and they shall say unto you, Wherefore has the LORD pronounced all this great evil against us? or what is our iniquity? or what is our sin that we have committed against the LORD our God?

People of ordinary consciousness just can't seem to be circumspect regarding their lives; they often give up on God and do their own thing:.Jeremiah 18:10-12.

Jeremiah 16:11 Then shall you say unto them, Because your fathers have forsaken me, says the LORD and have walked after other gods.(of which they adopted many).and have served them and have worshipped them and have forsaken me and have not kept my law;

We forsake God by not listening and not hearkening to what He laid down that would do us good.

Jeremiah 16:12 And you have done worse than your fathers, for behold, you walk every one after the imagination of his evil heart, that they may not hearken unto me.

Living with evil in one's heart and doing that evil causes a person to not hear guidance from God. The way out is not to bring the evil inside you:.Matthew 5:13; Luke 14:34; Isaiah 29:20. Christ came to extract us from the prison of our egos, wherein is the path to all hurtfulness:.Matthew 18:11; Luke 19:10; John 18:9.

How bad were and are they?.2Kings 15:16; 1Kings 20:1-28; 2Kings 24:10-16; 2Chronicles 21:10; 36:14-16; Esther 3:13; Psalms 62:3,4; 106:24,28,29,36-39; Jeremiah 32:30; Amos 1:13; Matthew 14:6-8; Herod the Great was not so great, nor was Herod Antipas, nor were many ancient kings who were either evil from the start or became that way; some though were good from the start and later evil and some were just good all the time. A good king or leader and good people bring God's favor and with that health, protection, prosperity and the good things a society needs to provide well for itself and its children. But lookout if it's not that way:.Jeremiah 52:1-15.

Jeremiah 16:13 Therefore will I cast you out of this land into a land that you know not, neither you nor your fathers and there shall you serve other gods day and night, where I will not show you favour.

Jeremiah 16:19 O LORD, my strength and my fortress and my refuge in the day of affliction, the Gentiles shall come unto you from the ends of the earth and shall say, Surely our fathers have inherited lies, vanity and things wherein there is no profit.(original."Surely our fathers have inherited lies, vanity and unprofitable practices")

Jeremiah 16:21 Therefore, behold, I will this once cause them to know, I will cause them to know mine hand and my might and they shall know that my name is The LORD.

Jeremiah 17:5 This says the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusts in man and makes flesh his arm, whose heart has turned aside from the LORD.

Jeremiah 17:5 This says the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusts in man and makes flesh his arm.(he thinks his strength lies in the capabilities of self, as well as society's military and industrial organizatons:.Isaiah 33:1; man trusts in the so many wrong things of the physical world {which is how the ego works} instead of trusting in the spiritual and invisible world of the Creator; as long as we don't trust in the Creator, He won't be powerful on our behalf {Matthew 13:58} and will keep hiding from us, for who would want to be around a people as most of us have been throughout history).and whose heart has turned aside from the LORD.

Jeremiah 17:6 Destitute in the desert is he, not seeing when good comes, but dwells in the parched places in the wilderness, in a salt land not inhabited.

Jeremiah 17:6 Destitute in the desert is he, not seeing when good comes.(can't seem to find the way for his life to go better; always on the paths that lead to dead ends; just misses opportunites for good), but dwells in the parched places in the wilderness, in a salt land not inhabited.

Jeremiah 17:7.8 Blessed is the man that trusts in the LORD and whose hope the LORD is. For he is as a tree planted by the waters and that spreads out her roots by the river and shall not see when heat comes, but her leaf shall be green and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit.

Jeremiah 17:7.8 Blessed is the man that trusts in the LORD and whose hope the LORD is. For he is as a tree planted by the waters and that spreads out her roots by the river and shall not see when heat comes.(protection), but her leaf shall be green and shall not be careful in the year of drought.(doesn't have to be worried), neither shall cease from yielding fruit.

Jeremiah 17:9 The heart is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked, who can know it?

Jeremiah 17:9 The heart is deceitful.(original 'circumvent', 'crooked', 'devious', 'supplant', 'sly', 'cunnng'; everything it thinks is for selfish advantage).above all things and desperately.(original 'incapable of being altered'; we are the way we are and stay the way we are; unless the Creator works in us, man is just too weak spiritually to engage himself toward improvement).wicked.(original 'weak', that is, being weak spiritually he lives a life bouncing about in the world due to the vicissitudes of the mass mind), who can know it?.(original for 'who can know it' is 'understand' {but really meaning to overstand} and 'know this'; how can one know, that is, comprehend it in a way that benefit can be gained, in order to not be like this? Intuition is one way.).(?)

Jeremiah 17:10 I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins.(Psalms 7:9), even to give every man according to his ways and according to the fruit of his doings..(Isaiah 3:10:11; mankind reaps what he sows)

Jeremiah 17:11 As the partridge sits on eggs and hatches them not, so he that gets riches and not by right, shall leave them in the midst of his days and at his end shall be a fool.

Jeremiah 17:13 O LORD, the hope of Israel, all that forsake you shall be ashamed and they that depart from me.(original for 'from me shall be written in the earth', is 'from these warning writings').shall be written in the earth, because they have forsaken the LORD, the fountain of living waters.

Jeremiah 17:20-22 And say unto them, Hear you the word of the LORD, you kings of Judah and all Judah and all the inhabitants of Jerusalem, that enter in by these gates. Thus saith the LORD, Take heed to yourselves and bear no burden on the sabbath day, nor bring it in by the gates of Jerusalem; Neither carry forth a burden out of your houses on the sabbath day, neither do you any work, but hallow you the sabbath day, as I commanded your fathers.
