Jeremiah 18:4 And the vessel that he made of clay was marred.(original 'destroyed').in the hand of the potter. So he made it again another vessel, as seemed good to the potter to make it.(made it again; allegorical to being born again).

Jeremiah 18:6 O house of Israel, cannot I do with you as this potter? says the LORD. Behold, as the clay is in the potter's hand so are you in mine hand, O house of Israel.

Jeremiah 18:8 If that nation, against whom I have pronounced, turn from their evil.(how to do this), I will repent of the evil that I thought to do unto them.

The Creator is incredibly merciful.

Jeremiah 18:9 And at what instant I shall speak concerning a nation and concerning a kingdom, to build and to plant it.

Jeremiah 18:10 If it.(the nation).do evil in my sight, that it obey not my voice, then I will repent of the good, wherewith I said I would benefit them.

Back then, the people didn't have the character to handle the good God wanted them to have:.1Chronicles 22:13.

Jeremiah 18:11 Now therefore go to, speak to the men of Judah and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, saying, Thus saith the LORD; Behold, I frame evil against you and devise a device against you. Return you now every one from his evil way and make your ways and your doings good.

Jeremiah 18:12 And they said, There is no hope!.But we will walk after our own devices and we will every one do the imagination of his evil heart.

Jeremiah 18:12 And they said, There is no hope!.(there's no hope for us unless we devise our own ways, which is an excuse).But we will walk after our own devices and we will every one do the imagination of his evil heart.

They had their excuses to avoid anything to do with God; they were so out of touch with God that they invented their own ways by adopting and modifying the worship practices of the pagan nations around them and of course, that didn't go well with them way back then:.Deuteronomy 28:14-48.

Jeremiah 18:15 Because my people has forgotten me, they have burned incense to vanity and they have caused them to stumble in their ways from the ancient paths, to walk in paths, in a way not cast up.(not upright).

Jeremiah 18:18 Then said they, Come and let us devise devices against Jeremiah, for the law shall not perish from the priest, nor counsel from the wise, nor the word from the prophet. Come and let us smite him with the tongue and let us not give heed to any of his words.

Jeremiah 18:18 Then said they, Come and let us devise devices against Jeremiah, for the law shall not perish from the priest.(these closed-minded.bigoted priests over the people back then, resented and resisted any change that would threaten their status quo and thus their advantage; it was the same much later in the time of Christ physically on Earth as Emmanuel), nor counsel from the wise, nor the word from the prophet. Come and let us smite him with the tongue and let us not give heed to any of his words.

Jeremiah 19:1 Thus says the LORD, Go and get a potter's earthen bottle and take of the ancients of the people and of the ancients of the priests;

Jeremiah 19:2,3 And go forth unto the valley of the son of Hinnom, which is by the entry of the east gate and proclaim there the words that I shall tell you, And say, Hear you the word of the LORD, O kings of Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem; Thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Behold, I will bring evil upon this place, the which whosoever hears, his ears shall tingle.

Jeremiah 19:4 Because they have forsaken me, and have estranged this place, and have burned incense in it unto other gods, whom neither they nor their fathers have known, nor the kings of Judah, and have filled this place with the blood of innocents;

Jeremiah 19:5 They have built also the high places of Baal, to burn their sons with fire for burnt offerings unto Baal, which I commanded not, nor spake it, neither came it into my mind.

Jeremiah 19:6 Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that this place shall no more be called Tophet, nor The valley of the son of Hinnom, but The valley of slaughter.

Jeremiah 19:7-9 And I will make void the counsel of Judah and Jerusalem in this place and I will cause them to fall by the sword before their enemies and by the hands of them that seek their lives and their carcases will I give to be meat for the fowls of the heaven and for the beasts of the earth. And I will make this city desolate and an hissing. Every one that passes thereby shall be astonished and hiss because of all the plagues thereof. And I will cause them to eat the flesh of their sons and the flesh of their daughters and they shall eat every one the flesh of his friend in the siege and straitness, wherewith their enemies and they that seek their lives, shall straiten.(original for word 'straiten' is 'distress', 'oppress', 'press', 'straiten', 'constrain', 'bring into straits').them.

Jeremiah 19:10 Then shalt thou break the bottle in the sight of the men that go with thee,

Jeremiah 19:11 And shalt say unto them, Thus says the LORD of hosts; Even so will I break this people and this city, as one breaks a potter's vessel, that cannot be made whole again and they shall bury them in Tophet, till there be no place to bury.

Jeremiah 19:12,13 Thus will I do unto this place, saith the LORD and to the inhabitants thereof and even make this city as Tophet.(the terrible practices of Tophet). And the houses of Jerusalem, and the houses of the kings of Judah, shall be defiled as the place of Tophet, because of all the houses upon whose roofs they have burned incense unto all the host of heaven and have poured out drink offerings unto other gods.

Jeremiah 19:15 Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Behold, I will bring upon this city and upon all her towns all the evil that I have pronounced against it, because they have hardened their necks.(stubbornness; because they didn't want anything to do with the true God {Jeremiah 44:16,17}, they locked themselves away from awakening), that they might not hear my words.

Jeremiah 20:8,9 For since I spake, I cried out, I cried violence and spoil; because the word of the LORD was made a reproach unto me and a derision, daily. Then I said, I will not make mention of him, nor speak any more in his name. But his word was in mine heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones and I was weary with forbearing.(also means).and I could not stay.

Jeremiah 21:1 The word which came unto Jeremiah from the LORD, when king Zedekiah sent unto him Pashur the son of Melchiah and Zephaniah the son of Maaseiah the priest, saying,

Jeremiah 21:2-7 Enquire I pray thee, of the LORD for us, for Nebuchadrezzar.(another spelling for Nebuchadnezzar-II).king of Babylon makes war against us; if so be that the LORD will deal with us according to all his wondrous works, that he may go up from us. Then said Jeremiah unto them, Thus shall you say to Zedekiah, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel; Behold, I will turn back the weapons of war that are in your hands, wherewith you fight against the king of Babylon and against the Chaldeans, which besiege you without the walls.(just outside your walls).and I will assemble them into the midst of this city. And I myself will fight against you with an outstretched hand and with a strong arm, even in anger and in fury great wrath. And I will smite the inhabitants of this city, both man and beast. They shall die of a great pestilence. And afterward, saith the LORD, I will deliver Zedekiah king of Judah and his servants and the people and such as are left in this city from the pestilence, from the sword and from the famine, into the hand of Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon and into the hand of their enemies and into the hand of those that seek their life and he shall smite them with the edge of the sword. He shall not spare them, neither have pity, nor have mercy.

Jeremiah 21:8 And unto this people you shall say, Thus says the LORD, Behold I set before you the way of life.(see 18:8).and the way of death.

Jeremiah 21:9 He that abideth in this city shall die by the sword and by the famine and by the pestilence, but he that goes out and falleth to the Chaldeans that besiege you, he shall live and his life shall be unto him for a prey.(Jeremiah 39:17,18).

Jeremiah 21:12 O house of David, thus says the LORD; Execute judgment in the morning and deliver him that is spoiled.(original also means 'suffered violence', 'taken away by force', 'robbed', 'torn away', 'seized,' 'plundered').out of the hand of the oppressor, lest my fury go out like fire and burn that none can quench it, because of the evil of your doings.

Jeremiah 21:13 Behold, I am against thee, O inhabitant of the valley and rock of the plain, says the LORD; which say, Who shall come down against us? or who shall enter into our habitations?.(in other words, we are so great, no one would chance coming against us)

Jeremiah 21:14 But I will punish.(original for 'punish' is 'number', meaning requite).you according to the fruit of your doings.(it's really an automatic law of the universe God set up that does this), says the LORD and I will kindle a fire in the forest thereof and it shall devour all things round about it.

Jeremiah 22:3 Thus says the LORD, Execute you judgment and righteousness and deliver the spoiled out of the hand of the oppressor and do no wrong, do no violence to the stranger, the fatherless, nor the widow, neither shed innocent blood in this place.

Jeremiah 22:4,5 For if you do this thing indeed, then shall there enter in by the gates of this house kings sitting upon the throne of David.(good people out for your good), riding in chariots and on horses, he and his servants and his people. But if you will not hear these words, I swear by myself, says the LORD, that this house shall become a desolation.

Jeremiah 22:11 For thus saith the LORD touching Shallum the son of Josiah.king of Judah, which reigned instead of Josiah his father, which went forth out of this place. He shall not return thither any more.

Jeremiah 22:12 But he shall die in the place whither they have led him captive and shall see this land no more.

Jeremiah 22:13 Woe unto him that builds his house by unrighteousness and his chambers by wrong, that uses his neighbour's service without wages and gives him not for his work.

Jeremiah 22:13 Woe unto him that builds his house by unrighteousness and his chambers by wrong.(Leviticus 19:13; Deuteronomy 24:6-15; Micah 3:10; Habakkuk 2:6-10; James 5:4), that uses his neighbour's service without wages.(original is 'without cause', that is, figures ways to get what he wants and not be obligated to give anything in return as king Benhadad did; ok to give and not expect something back, but it's talking about a person's {or a group of them} devious ways of selfishness, such as those of Jehoiakim, one of the corrupt sons of good king Josiah:.2Kings 23:35-37).and gives him not for his work.

Jeremiah 22:24 As I live, saith the LORD, though Coniah the son of Jehoiakim king of Judah were the signet upon my right hand, yet would I pluck thee thence;

Jeremiah 22:28-30 Is this man Coniah a despised broken idol? is he a vessel wherein is no pleasure? wherefore are they cast out, he and his seed and are cast into a land which they know not? O earth, earth, earth, hear the word of the LORD. Thus saith the LORD, Write you this man childless, a man that shall not prosper in his days, for no man of his seed shall prosper, sitting upon the throne of David and ruling any more in Judah.

Jeremiah 23:1 Woe be unto the pastors.(Jeremiah 8:11).that destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture! says the LORD.

Jeremiah 23:5 Behold the days come says the LORD, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch and a King shall reign and prosper and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth.

Jeremiah 23:8 But The LORD liveth, which brought up and which led the seed of the house of Israel out of the north country and from all countries whither I had driven them and they shall dwell in their own land.

Jeremiah 23:11 For both prophet and priest are profane, yea, in my house have I found their wickedness, says the LORD.

Jeremiah 23:15 Therefore thus says the LORD of hosts concerning the prophets; Behold, I will feed them with wormwood and make them drink the water of gall. For from the prophets of Jerusalem is profaneness gone forth into all the land.

Jeremiah 23:16 Thus says the LORD of hosts, Hearken not unto the words of the prophets that prophesy unto you. They make you vain. They speak a vision of their own heart and not out of the mouth of the LORD

They either know not or know well but don't tell others the truth about the invisible laws, one being, reap and sow; corrupt are they:.Psalms 53:1.

Jeremiah 23:17 They say still unto them that despise me, The LORD has said, You shall have peace.(Isaiah 30:10).and they say unto every one that walks after the imagination of his own heart, No evil shall come upon you.

Jeremiah 23:18 For who has stood in the counsel of the LORD and has perceived and heard his word? Who has marked his word and heard it?

Jeremiah 23:23 Am I a God at hand, says the LORD and not a God afar off?

The spirit in you is both, depending if you are spiritual or of your ego.

Jeremiah 23:24 Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him? says the LORD. Do not I fill heaven and earth?.(*).says the LORD.

Jeremiah 23:25,26 I have heard what the prophets said, that prophesy lies in my name, saying, I have dreamed, I have dreamed. How long shall this be in the heart of the prophets that prophesy lies? yea, they are prophets of the deceit of their own heart;

Jeremiah 23:25,26 I have heard what the prophets said, that prophesy lies in my name.(false prophets), saying, I have dreamed, I have dreamed.(Jeremiah 14:14). How long shall this be in the heart of the prophets that prophesy lies? yea, they are prophets of the deceit of their own heart;

Jeremiah 23:27 Which think to cause my people to forget my name by their dreams which they tell every man to his neighbour, as their fathers have forgotten my name for Baal.

Jeremiah 23:28 The prophet that has a dream, let him tell a dream and he that has my word, let him speak my word faithfully. What is the chaff to the wheat? says the LORD.

Jeremiah 23:28 The prophet that has a dream.(about dreams), let him tell a dream and he that has my word, let him speak my word faithfully.(as Balaam finally learned to do:.Numbers 24:13). What is the chaff to the wheat.(don't bring your own thinking from your past experiences into the message the prophet has told you)? says the LORD.

Jeremiah 23:29 Is not my word like as a fire? says the LORD and like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces?

Jeremiah 24:1 The LORD shewed me and behold, two baskets of figs were set before the temple of the LORD after that Nebuchadrezzar.(a different spelling of Nebuchadnezzar-II).king of Babylon had carried away captive Jeconiah the son of Jehoiakim king of Judah and the princes of Judah, with the carpenters and smiths, from Jerusalem and had brought them to Babylon.

Jeremiah 24:5 Thus says the LORD, the God of Israel; Like these good figs, so will I acknowledge them that are carried away captive.(2Chronicles 36:10).of Judah, whom I have sent out of this place into the land of the Chaldeans.for their good.

Jeremiah 24:6 For I will set mine eyes upon them for good and I will bring them again to this land and I will build them and not pull them down and I will plant them and not pluck them up.

Jeremiah 24:7 And.I will.give them an heart.to know me.(can't know God without a heart toward God), that I am the LORD and they shall be my people and I will be their God, for they shall return unto me with their whole heart.(Galatians 4:6).

Jeremiah 25:1-4 The word that came to Jeremiah concerning all the people of Judah in the fourth year of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king of Judah, that was the first year of Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon; The which Jeremiah the prophet spake unto all the people of Judah and to all the inhabitants of Jerusalem, saying, From the thirteenth year of Josiah the son of Amon king of Judah, even unto this day, that is the three and twentieth year, the word of the LORD hath come unto me and I have spoken unto you, rising early and speaking, but you have not hearkened.(Isaiah 48:6-9). And the LORD has sent unto you all his servants the prophets, rising early and sending them, but you have not hearkened, nor inclined your ear to hear.

Jeremiah 25:5 They said, Turn you.(it's a descision toward higher consciousness).again now every one from his evil way and from the evil of your doings and dwell in the land that the LORD has given unto you and to your fathers for ever and ever.

Jeremiah 25:6-8 And go not after other gods to serve them and to worship them and provoke me not to anger with the works of your hands and I will do you no hurt. Yet you have not hearkened unto me, saith the LORD, that you might provoke me to anger with the works of your hands to your own hurt. Therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts; Because you have not heard my words,

Jeremiah 25:9 Behold, I will send and take all the families of the north.(ancient Babylon was closely allied with the Chaldeans and the Medes and Persians), saith the LORD and Nebuchadrezzar.(another spelling for Nebuchadnezzar-II).the king of Babylon my servant and will bring them against this land and against the inhabitants thereof and against all these nations round about and will utterly destroy them and make them an astonishment and an hissing and perpetual desolations.

Jeremiah 25:10 Moreover I will take from them the voice of mirth and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom and the voice of the bride, the sound of the millstones and the light of the candle.

Jeremiah 25:11 And this whole land shall be a desolation and an astonishment and these nations shall serve the king of Babylon seventy years.

Jeremiah 25:12 And it shall come to pass, when seventy years are accomplished, that I will punish.(on the word 'punish').the king of Babylon and his nation, saith the LORD.(here it switches from the spiritual implication in chapter 24:7 and verses 5 & 6, above, to the physical; you'll see these physical/spiritual antitypical.analogies throughout the Bible, but particularly in the Old Testament), for their iniquity and the land of the Chaldeans and will make it perpetual desolations.

Seems a bit unfair, when you consider Nebuchadnezzar-II was the 'servant' of God (verse 9 above) and earlier came to comprehend the great true God after having the mind of a wild beast and his son Evil-merodach was a kind king but, during these 70 years the people were not good, nor were some interspersed kings and.Belshazzar.wasn't either:.Matthew Poole's Commentary:."of these seventy years Nebuchadnezzar-II reigned thirty-seven.(2Kings 25:27), Evil-merodach his son thirty-two and Belshazzar his grandson at least two:.Daniel 8:1.".Concise Commentary:."Belshazzar desecrated the sacred.vessels of Jerusalem, was warned of God by the fingers of a man's hand writing upon the wall. He had been weighed by God and was found wanting. Though remonstrated with by Daniel he showed no signs of repentance.(repentance means to change)."; during these seventy years there were other kings interspersed here and there as well, such as the Concise Dictionary records."Nergal-sharezer:.Jeremiah 39:3,13. Two others are also named in history, Laborosoarchod and Nabonadius or Labynetus. On Nabonadius/Labynetus Col. Rawlinson in 1854 A.D. at Mugheir, the ancient Ur, found an inscription on a monument to the effect that Nabonadius associated his son Belshareser.(Belshazzar).with himself on the throne. Some tablets also have been discovered bearing the record of certain contracts made by Bilusarrautsur, son of the king, which is also believed to refer to Belshazzar. Nabonadius was elsewhere when Belshazzar was slain. This agrees with his saying to Daniel that if he could interpret the writing he should be the third in the kingdom. Belshazzar is called the son of Nebuchadnezzar, but this, in scripture, often means grandson, and Nabonadius is supposed to have married a daughter of Nebuchadnezzar. He is said to have been a usurper and by such a marriage would have consolidated his position on the throne:.Daniel 5:1-31.".Easton's Dictionary:."Belshazzar was son of Nabonidus by Nitocris, who was the daughter of Nebuchadnezzar and the widow of Nergal-sharezer."

Jeremiah 25:13 And I will bring upon that land all my words which I have pronounced against it, even all that is written in this book, which Jeremiah has prophesied against all the nations.

Jeremiah 25:14 For many nations and great kings shall serve themselves of them also and I will recompense them according to their deeds and according to the works of their own hands.

Jeremiah 26:4-9 And thou shalt say unto them, Thus saith the LORD; If you will not hearken to me, to walk in my law, which I have set before you, to hearken to the words of my servants the prophets, whom I sent unto you, both rising up early and sending them, but you have not hearkened; then will I make this house like Shiloh and will make this city a curse to all the nations of the earth. So the priests and the prophets and all the people heard Jeremiah speaking these words in the house of the LORD. Now it came to pass, when Jeremiah had made an end of speaking all that the LORD had commanded him to speak unto all the people, that the priests and the prophets and all the people took him, saying, Thou shalt surely die.(they didn't like his message). Why have you prophesied in the name of the LORD, saying, This house shall be like Shiloh and this city shall be desolate without an inhabitant? And all the people were gathered against Jeremiah in the house of the LORD.

Jeremiah 26:10-16 When the princes of Judah heard these things, then they came up from the king's house unto the house of the LORD, and sat down in the entry of the new gate of the LORD'S house. Then spake the priests and the prophets unto the princes and to all the people, saying, This man is worthy to die, for he has prophesied against this city, as you have heard with your ears. Then spake Jeremiah unto all the princes and to all the people, saying, The LORD sent me to prophesy against this house and against this city all the words that you have heard. Therefore now amend your ways and your doings and obey the voice of the LORD your God and the LORD will repent him of the evil that he has pronounced against you. As for me, behold, I am in your hand. Do with me as seems good and meet.(fitting).unto you. But know you for certain, that if you put me to death, you shall surely bring innocent blood upon yourselves and upon this city and upon the inhabitants thereof, for of a truth the LORD has sent me unto you to speak all these words in your ears. Then said the princes and all the people unto the priests and to the prophets; This man is not worthy to die, for he has spoken to us in the name of the LORD our God.

Jeremiah 26:17 Then rose up certain of the elders of the land and spake to all the assembly of the people, saying,

Jeremiah 26:18.Micah the Morasthite prophesied in the days of Hezekiah king of Judah and spake to all the people of Judah, saying, Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Zion shall be plowed like a field and Jerusalem shall become heaps and the mountain of the house as the high places of a forest.

Jeremiah 26:19 Did Hezekiah king of Judah and all Judah put him at all to death? did he not fear the LORD and besought the LORD and the LORD repented him of the evil which he had pronounced against them? Thus might we procure great evil against our souls.

Jeremiah 27:1 In the beginning of the reign of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king of Judah came this word unto Jeremiah from the LORD, saying,

Jeremiah 27:2 Thus said the LORD.(Romans 14:7-9).to me; Make you bonds and yokes and put them upon your neck,

Jeremiah 27:3 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.(God would keep them safe in captivity).king of Judah.

Jeremiah 27:4 And command them to say unto their masters, Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Thus shall you say unto your masters; 

Jeremiah 27:5 I have made the earth, the man and the beast that are upon the ground, by my great power and by my outstretched arm and have given it unto whom it seemed meet.(fitting and right).unto me.

God puts in power who He wants; if you resist the powers over you, who are you really resisting?.Proverbs 21:1 "The king's heart is in the hand of the LORD. As the rivers of water, he turns it whithersoever he will." Acts 5:38,39 "And now I say unto you, Refrain from these men and let them alone, for if this counsel or this work be of men, it will come to nought, but if it be of God, you cannot overthrow it, lest haply you be found even to fight against God."

Jeremiah 27:6 And now have I given all these lands.(*).into the hand of Nebuchadnezzar-II the king of Babylon, my servant. The beasts of the field have I given him also to serve him.

Jeremiah 27:7 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.

Jeremiah 27:8 And it shall come to pass, that the nation and kingdom which will not serve the same Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon and that will not put their neck under the yoke of the king of Babylon, that nation will I punish.(original for word 'punish' is 'reckon with'), says the LORD, with the sword and with the famine and with the pestilence, until I have consumed them by his hand.

Jeremiah 27:9 Therefore hearken not you to your prophets, nor to your diviners, nor to your dreamers, nor to your enchanters, nor to your sorcerers, which speak unto you, saying, You shall not serve the king of Babylon.

Jeremiah 27:9 Therefore hearken not you to your.prophets.(difference between false prophets and true prophets), nor to your diviners, nor to your.dreamers.(here speaking of one who gets information of low consciousness, that is, not of love which would work to the best of all {Romans 13:10}, but from the mass mind; but like everything, there are two sides to the dreamers question), nor to your.enchanters.(*), nor to your.sorcerers.(*), which speak unto you, saying, You shall not serve the king of Babylon..(God was working things out that they would be better off under the king of Babylon at this time, who was Nebuchadnezzer-II)

Jeremiah 27:10 For they prophesy a lie unto you, to remove you far from your land and that I should drive you out and you should perish.

Jeremiah 27:11 But the nations that bring their neck under the yoke of the king of Babylon and serve him, those will I let remain still in their own land, says the LORD and they shall till it and dwell therein..("The Master will take care of the lighthouse. Let us keep the lower lights burning."....D.L. Moody)

Jeremiah 27:12 I spake also to Zedekiah king of Judah according to all these words, saying, Bring your necks under the yoke of the king of Babylon and serve him and his people and live.

Jeremiah 27:13 Why will you die, you and your people, by the sword, by the famine and by the pestilence, as the LORD has spoken against the nation that will not serve the king of Babylon?

Clarke's Bible Commentary:."If you resist the king of Babylon, to whom I have given a commission against you, you shall be destroyed by the sword and by famine, but if you submit, you shall escape all these evils"; who controls evil? what nation can do what the Creator decides not to occur?

Jeremiah 27:14 Therefore hearken not unto the words of the prophets that speak unto you, saying, You shall not serve the king of Babylon. For they prophesy a lie unto you.(*).

Jeremiah 27:15 For I have not sent them, says the LORD, yet they prophesy a lie in my name, that I might drive you out and that you might perish, you and the prophets that prophesy unto you.(you'll all go; be careful deciding whom you give reverence to:.Acts 17:11).

Jeremiah 27:16 Also I spake to the priests and to all this people, saying, Thus says 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 brought again from Babylon. For they prophesy a lie unto you.

Jeremiah 27:16 Also I spake to the priests and to all this people, saying, Thus says 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 brought again from Babylon.(or, in today's words, 'God doesn't want it to be this way; why would God ever want you to be under the yoke like a slave?; didn't God take your forefathers out of Egypt, away from Pharaoh and give you a land all for yourselves? so, let's leave this society and go up to some mountain and build a community where we can all be cozy together). For they prophesy a lie unto you. 

Jeremiah 27:17 Hearken not unto them. Serve the king of Babylon and live. Wherefore should this city be laid waste?

Jeremiah 27:18 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.

Jeremiah 27:18 But if they be prophets.(if they are true prophets and not falsies).and if the word of the LORD be with them, let them now make intercession to the LORD of hosts.(if they are true prophets of the Lord, let them talk to me about these things which they seem so concerned about not going to Babylon), 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.(it wasn't the people, it was the money in the form of these gold and silver objects being taken away that these falsies were so concerned about).

Jeremiah 27:19 For thus says 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,

Jeremiah 27:20 Which Nebuchadnezzar-II king of Babylon took not, when he carried away captive Jeconiah the son of Jehoiakim king of Judah from Jerusalem to Babylon and all the nobles of Judah and Jerusalem;

why did God do this (2Kings 24:1-5) and how bad was it? 2Kings 24:10-16; Jeremiah 16:12.

Jeremiah 27:21 Yea, thus says 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;

Jeremiah 27:22 They shall be carried to Babylon and there shall they be until the day that I visit them, says the LORD. Then will I bring them up and restore them to this place.

God wants us to learn from the experiences in our lives; when we do, then all changes for the better.

Jeremiah 28:9 The prophet which prophesies of peace..When the word of the prophet shall come to pass, then shall the prophet be known that the LORD has truly sent him.

And even if it does come to pass, it could still be a false prophet, so how to know what to look for?.Deuteronomy 13:1-5.

Jeremiah 28:11 And Hananiah.(a false prophet: verses 15-17 below).spake in the presence of all the people, saying, Thus saith the LORD; Even so will I break the yoke of Nebuchadnezzar-II king of Babylon from the neck of all nations within the space of two full years. And the prophet Jeremiah went his way.

Jeremiah 28:15-17 Then said the prophet Jeremiah unto Hananiah the prophet, Hear now, Hananiah; The LORD hath not sent thee, but thou makest this people to trust in a lie. Therefore thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will cast thee from off the face of the earth. This year thou shalt die, because thou hast taught rebellion against the LORD. So Hananiah the prophet died the same year in the seventh month.

Jeremiah 29:7 And seek the peace of the city whither I have caused you to be carried away captives and pray unto the LORD for it, for in the peace thereof shall ye have peace?

Jeremiah 29:7 And seek the peace of the city whither I have caused you to be carried away captives and pray unto the LORD for it, for in the peace thereof shall ye have peace.(that is, whatever area you many be in, there will be peace for you there if you ask {importance of asking:.Matthew 7:7-11} God for it to be so)..(?)

Jeremiah 29:10 For thus saith the LORD, That after seventy years be accomplished at Babylon I will visit you and perform my good word toward you in causing you to return to this place.

Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you an expected end. 

Jeremiah 29:12 Then shall you call upon me and you shall go and pray unto me and I will hearken unto you.

Jeremiah 29:13 And when you seek me you'll find me when you search for me with all your heart.

Matthew 6:33; 7:7; John 14:14; Deuteronomy 4:29; 2Chronicles 15:2.

Jeremiah 29:14 And I will be found of you, says the LORD. And I will turn away your captivity.(*).and I will gather you from all the nations and from all the places whither I have driven you, says the LORD and I will bring you again into the place whence I caused you to be carried away captive.

Jeremiah 29:15 Because you have said, The LORD has raised us up prophets in Babylon.

Or, today, 'we don't need spiritual things from God because the doctors, lawyers and pharmaceutical companies, the government and the religionists are providing answers for us'.

Jeremiah 29:19 Because they have not hearkened to my words, says the LORD, which I sent unto them by my servants the prophets, rising up early and sending them, but you would not hear, says the LORD.

Jeremiah 30:7.Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it. It is even the time of Jacob's trouble, but he shall be saved out of it.

Jeremiah 30:7.Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it. It is even the time of Jacob's trouble.(Jacob's name was changed {Genesis 32:27,28} to Israel and today Israel is a spiritual Israel), but he shall be saved out of it.
