Jeremiah 31:3.The LORD has appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved you with an everlasting love.(how could God love you with an everlasting love unless you too have been everlasting?). Therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn you.

Jeremiah 31:12,13 Therefore they shall come and sing in the height of Zion and shall flow together to the goodness of the LORD, for wheat and for wine and for oil and for the young of the flock and of the herd. And their soul shall be as a watered garden and they shall not sorrow any more at all. Then shall the virgin rejoice in the dance.(an opportunity to be dressed up and attractive in front of potential.suitors), both young men and old together. For I will turn their mourning into joy and will comfort them and make them rejoice from their sorrow.

Jeremiah 31:18 I have surely heard Ephraim.bemoaning himself thus; You have chastised me and I was chastised, as a bullock unaccustomed to the yoke. Turn thou me.(Lamentations 5:21).and I shall be turned, for you are the LORD my God.

Jeremiah 31:22 How long will you go about, O you backsliding daughter? for the LORD has created a new thing in the earth, A woman shall compass a man.

Jeremiah 31:22 How long will you go about.(original for 'go about' is 'turn away'), O you backsliding daughter? for the LORD has created a new thing.(original for 'new thing' is 'renewed':.Isaiah 43:19).in the earth.(God has renewed the true purpose of women, that being the same as all humans' purpose from the beginning and that being a spiritual purpose, which, when overstood, allows women, who have been subjugated all through history, to see that regarding spiritual things, they are equal to men in hope, life purpose and reward; most women throughout history have regarded their circumstances of life as inferior to men and men welcomed this to their advantage), A woman shall compass.(to encircle, to excel, to court; being a strong of character woman, such as Ruth and Esther were).a man.(in Creator-God's eyes, women are equal to men in spiritual potential and certainly there have been women so much better than many men).

Jeremiah 31:31,32 Behold, the days come, says the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah; Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt, which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, says the LORD.

Jeremiah 31:31,32 Behold, the days come, says the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel.(who this is today?).and with the house of Judah; Not according to the covenant.(a covenant is an agreement and refers here to the old covenant).that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, says the LORD.

Jeremiah 31:33 But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel.(today those of the Creator's spirituality are spiritual Israel); After those days, says the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts and write it in their hearts and will be their God and they shall be my people..(Hebrews 10:16)

Though a sense of right and wrong.is there to use, humans are never forced toward good or evil:.Romans 2:15; James 1:14.

Jeremiah 31:34 And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD, for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD. For I will forgive their iniquity and I will remember their sin no more.(*).

Jeremiah 32:17 Ah Lord GOD! behold, you have made the heaven and the earth by your great power and stretched out arm and there is nothing too hard for you.

Jeremiah 32:18 You show lovingkindness unto thousands and recompense the iniquity of the fathers into the bosom of their children after them. The Great, the Mighty God, the LORD of hosts, is his name.

Jeremiah 32:18 You show lovingkindness unto thousands and recompense the iniquity of the fathers into the bosom of their children after them.(how? and an example of this in the life of Eli). The Great, the Mighty God, the LORD of hosts, is his name.

Jeremiah 32:19 Great in counsel and mighty in work. For thine eyes are open upon all the ways.(?).of the sons of men, to give every one according to his ways and according to the fruit of his doings..(Jeremiah 6:19)

Jeremiah 32:21 And have brought forth your people Israel out of the land of Egypt with signs and with wonders and with a strong hand and with a stretched out arm and with great terror.

They saw what powerful things the Creator can do in their trek out of the bondage they were under in Egypt for so long.

Jeremiah 32:22,23 And have given them this land, which you did swear to their fathers to give them, a land flowing with milk and honey. And they came in and possessed it, but they obeyed not your voice, neither walked in your law. They have done nothing of all that you commanded them to do. Therefore you have caused all this evil to come upon them.

Jeremiah 32:24 Behold the mounts.(those mounted on horses), they are come unto the city to take it and the city is given into the hand of the Chaldeans that fight against it, all because of the sword and of the famine and of the pestilence.(which weakened the people before being overtaken).and what you have spoken is come to pass and behold, you see it.

Jeremiah 32:25 And you have said unto me, O Lord GOD, Buy you the field for money and take witnesses.(you might as well go and purchase the field the city is on and get some people to see what I'll be doing to it, because it's for sure that I'll be doing it), for the city is given into the hand of the Chaldeans.

Jeremiah 32:26 Then came the word of the LORD unto Jeremiah, saying,

Jeremiah 32:27 Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh. Is there any thing too hard for me?

Jeremiah 32:28,29 Therefore thus says the LORD; Behold, I will give this city into the hand of the Chaldeans and into the hand of Nebuchadrezzar-II king of Babylon and he shall take it. And the Chaldeans, that fight against this city, shall come and set fire on this city and burn it with the houses, upon whose roofs they have offered incense unto Baal and poured out drink offerings unto other gods, to provoke me to anger.

Jeremiah 32:30 For the children of Israel and the children of Judah have only done evil before me from their youth.(*), for the children of Israel have only provoked me to anger with the work of their hands.(what work of their hands? They wanted nothing to do with God:.Jeremiah 44:16,17), says the LORD.

Jeremiah 32:31 For this city has been to me as a provocation of mine anger and of my fury from the day that they built it even unto this day; that I should remove it from before my face, 

Jeremiah 32:32 Because of all the evil of the children of Israel and of the children of Judah, which they have done to provoke me to anger, they, their kings, their princes, their priests.(Jeremiah 32:32).and their prophets and the men of Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem. 

Jeremiah 32:33 And they have turned unto me the back and not the face. Though I taught them, rising up early and teaching them, yet they have not hearkened to receive instruction.

Jeremiah 32:34 But they set their abominations in the house, which is called by my name, to defile it. 

Jeremiah 32:35 And they built the high places of Baal, which are in the valley of the son of Hinnom, to cause their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire unto Molech; which I commanded them not, neither came it into my mind that they should do this abomination, to cause Judah to sin.

Jeremiah 32:35 And they built the high places of Baal, which are in the valley of the son of Hinnom, to cause their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire unto Molech.(comprised with.Barnes Notes:."these verses are repeated from Jeremaih 7:30,31, but in this verse, Baal is put for Tophet. Molech the king and Baal the lord are different names of the sun god, but in altered relations. Molech is the sun as the mighty fire, which in passing through the signs of the Zodiac burns up its own children. It is an old Canaanite worship, carried by the Phoenicians to all their colonies and firmly established in Palestine at the time when the Israelites conquered the country"); which I commanded them not, neither came it into my mind that they should do this abomination, to cause Judah to sin. 

Jeremiah 32:36-37 And now therefore thus saith the LORD, the God of Israel, concerning this city, whereof you say, It shall be delivered into the hand of the king of Babylon by the sword and by the famine and by the pestilence. Behold, I will gather them out of all countries, whither I have driven them in mine anger and in my fury and in great wrath and I will bring them again unto this place and I will cause them to dwell safely.

Jeremiah 32:38 And they shall be my people and I will be their God.

Jeremiah 32:39 And I will givethem one heart and one way, that they may fear me for ever, for the good of them and of their children after them.

Jeremiah 32:39 And I will give.(note, it's the Creator giving something to help).them one heart.(one heart is oneness).and one way.(John 14:6), that they may fear.(know me, understand me, respect what I am and how does one come to do that, how does one come to know the great invisible one?).me for ever.(?), for the good of them and of their children after them.(Deuteronomy 5:29)

Jeremiah 32:40-42 And I will make an everlasting covenant.with them, that I will not turn away from them, to do them good; but I will put my fear in their hearts, that they shall not depart from me. Yea, I will rejoice over them to do them good and I will plant them in this land assuredly with my whole heart and with my whole soul. For this says the LORD, Like as I have brought all this great evil upon this people.(*), so will I bring upon them all the good that I have promised them.

Jeremiah 33:3 Call unto me and I will answer you.(problem is most people don't ask).and show you great and mighty things, which you know not.

Jeremiah 33:6 Behold, I will bring it health and cure and I will cure them and will reveal unto them the abundance of peace and truth.

Jeremiah 33:6 Behold, I will.(word 'will' not in original).bring it.(word 'it' not in original).health and cure and I will.(word 'will' not in original).cure them and will.(word 'will' not in original).reveal unto them the abundance of peace and truth.

Jeremiah 33:8 And I will cleanse them from all their iniquity, whereby they have sinned against me and I will pardon all their iniquities, whereby they have sinned and whereby they have transgressed against me.

Jeremiah 33:20 Thus saith the LORD; If you can break my covenant of the day and my covenant of the night and that there should not be day and night in their season; 

Jeremiah 33:21 Then may also my covenant be broken with David my servant, that he should not have a son to reign upon his throne and with the Levites the priests, my ministers.

Jeremiah 34:8-10 This is the word that came unto Jeremiah from the LORD, after that the king Zedekiah had made a covenant with all the people which were at Jerusalem, to proclaim liberty unto them; That every man should let his manservant and every man his maidservant, being an Hebrew or an Hebrewess, go free, that none should serve himself of them, to wit, of a Jew his brother. Now when all the princes and all the people, which had entered into the covenant, heard that every one should let his manservant and every one his maidservant go free, that none should serve themselves of them any more, then they obeyed and let them go. 

Jeremiah 34:11-17 But afterward they turned and caused the servants and the handmaids, whom they had let go free to return and brought them into subjection for servants and for handmaids.

Jeremiah 34:11-17 But afterward they turned.(deceitful and corrupt, not caring for others, they greedily changed their minds:.1Timothy 6:5); Isaiah 56:11).and caused.(forced).the servants and the handmaids, whom they had let go free to return and brought them into subjection for servants and for handmaids.

Jeremiah 34:12-17 Therefore the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah from the LORD, saying, Thus saith the LORD, the God of Israel; I made a covenant with your fathers in the day that I brought them forth out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondmen, saying, At the end of seven years let you go every man his brother an Hebrew, which has been sold unto you and when he has served you six years, you shall let him go free from you, but your fathers hearkened not unto me, neither inclined their ear. And you were now turned and had done right in my sight, in proclaiming liberty every man to his neighbour and you had made a covenant.(an agreement).before me in the house which is called by my name. But you turned and polluted my name and caused every man his servant and every man his handmaid, whom you had set at liberty at their pleasure, to return and brought them into subjection, to be unto you for servants and for handmaids. Therefore thus says the LORD, You have not hearkened unto me, in proclaiming liberty, every one to his brother and every man to his neighbour. Behold, I proclaim a liberty for you, says the LORD, to the sword, to the pestilence and to the famine and I will make you to be removed into all the kingdoms of the earth.

The Old Testament laws, the ones here regarding slaves:.Exodus 21:1-6; there were over 600 other Old Testament laws, now all done away, were an attempt (*) at keeping peace, equity and freedom among people, one was.Leviticus 25:39,40.

Jeremiah 35:1-12 The word which came unto Jeremiah from the LORD in the days of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king of Judah, saying, Go unto the house of the Rechabites and speak unto them and bring them into the house of the LORD, into one of the chambers and give them wine to drink. Then I took Jaazaniah the son of Jeremiah, the son of Habaziniah and his brethren and all his sons and the whole house of the Rechabites and I brought them into the house of the LORD, into the chamber of the sons of Hanan, the son of Igdaliah, a man of God, which was by the chamber of the princes, which was above the chamber of Maaseiah the son of Shallum, the keeper of the door. And I set before the sons of the house of the Rechabites pots full of wine and cups and I said unto them, Drink ye wine. But they said, We will drink no wine, for Jonadab the son of Rechab our father commanded us, saying, Ye shall drink no wine, neither ye, nor your sons for ever. Neither shall ye build house, nor sow seed, nor plant vineyard, nor have any. But all your days ye shall dwell in tents, that you may live many days in the land where ye be strangers. Thus have we obeyed the voice of Jonadab the son of Rechab our father in all that he has charged us, to drink no wine all our days, we, our wives, our sons, nor our daughters, nor to build houses for us to dwell in. Neither have we vineyard, nor field, nor seed. But we have dwelt in tents and have obeyed and done according to all that Jonadab our father commanded us. But it came to pass, when Nebuchadrezzar.(another spelling for Nebuchadnezzar-II).king of Babylon came up into the land, that we said, Come and let us go to Jerusalem for fear of the army of the Chaldeans and for fear of the army of the Syrians. So we dwell at Jerusalem. Then came the word of the LORD unto Jeremiah, saying,

Jeremiah 35:13 Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Go and tell the men of Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, Will ye not receive instruction to hearken to my words? saith the LORD.

Jeremiah 35:15 I have sent also unto you all my servants the prophets, rising up early and sending them, saying, Return ye now every man from his evil way and amend your doings and go not after other gods to serve them and ye shall dwell in the land which I have given to you and to your fathers, but ye have not inclined your ear, nor hearkened unto me.

Jeremiah 35:16 Because the sons of Jonadab the son of Rechab have performed the commandment of their father which he commanded them.(people often adopt what they are exposed to, oftenfrom their families and friends, even having the same religious doctrines and going to the same churches), but this people has not hearkened unto me.

Jeremiah 35:17 Therefore thus says the LORD God of hosts, the God of Israel; Behold, I will bring upon Judah and upon all the inhabitants of Jerusalem all the evil that I have pronounced against them, because I have spoken unto them, but they have not heard and I have called unto them, but they have not answered.

Jeremiah 35:18,19 And Jeremiah said unto the house of the Rechabites, Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Because ye have obeyed the commandment of Jonadab your father and kept all his precepts and done according unto all that he hath commanded you; therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Jonadab the son of Rechab shall not want a man to stand before me for ever.(that is, because they have been like this, their posterity will exist a long time and God will be with them).

Jeremiah 36:1 And it came to pass in the fourth year of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king of Judah, that this word came unto Jeremiah from the LORD, saying, 

Jeremiah 36:2 Take thee a roll of a book and write therein all the words that I have spoken unto thee against Israel and against Judah and against all the nations, from the day I spake unto thee, from the days of Josiah, even unto this day.

Jeremiah 36:3 It may be that the house of Judah will hear all the evil which I purpose to do unto them, that they may return every man from his evil way, that I may forgive their iniquity and their sin.

Iniquity is one's current evil way of living; the way one is in attitude, that is, the motives one has that cause iniquity; compare the words iniquity & sin;

Jeremiah 36:4 Then Jeremiah called Baruch the son of Neriah and Baruch wrote from the mouth of Jeremiah all the words of the LORD, which he had spoken unto him, upon a roll of a book

Jeremiah 36:5 And Jeremiah commanded Baruch, saying, I am shut up. I cannot go into the house of the LORD.

Jeremiah 36:6,7 Therefore go you and read in the roll, which you have written from my mouth, the words of the LORD in the ears of the people in the LORD'S house upon the fasting day.(verse 9 below).and also thou shalt read them in the ears of all Judah that come out of their cities. It may be they will present their supplication before the LORD and will return every one from his evil way, for great is the anger and the fury that the LORD has pronounced against this people.

Jeremiah 36:8 And Baruch the son of Neriah did according to all that Jeremiah the prophet commanded him, reading in the book the words of the LORD in the LORD'S house. 

Jeremiah 36:9 And it came to pass in the fifth year of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king of Judah, in the ninth month, that they proclaimed a fast before the LORD to all the people in Jerusalem and to all the people that came from the cities of Judah unto Jerusalem. 

Jeremiah 36:10 Then read Baruch in the book the words of Jeremiah in the house of the LORD, in the chamber of Gemariah the son of Shaphan the scribe, in the higher court, at the entry of the new gate of the LORD'S house, in the ears of all the people.

Jeremiah 36:11-18 When Michaiah the son of Gemariah, the son of Shaphan, had heard out of the book all the words of the LORD, then he went down into the king's house, into the scribe's chamber and lo, all the princes sat there, even Elishama the scribe and Delaiah the son of Shemaiah and Elnathan the son of Achbor and Gemariah the son of Shaphan and Zedekiah the son of Hananiah and all the princes. Then Michaiah.(also one of the princes).declared unto them all the words that he had heard.(as best he could remember them), when Baruch read the book in the ears of the people. Therefore all the princes sent Jehudi the son of Nethaniah, the son of Shelemiah, the son of Cushi, unto Baruch, saying, Take in thine hand the roll wherein you have read in the ears of the people and come. So Baruch the son of Neriah took the roll in his hand and came unto them. And they said unto him, Sit down now and read it in our ears. So Baruch read it in their ears. Now it came to pass, when they had heard all the words, they were afraid both one and other and said unto Baruch, We will surely tell the king of all these words. And they asked Baruch, saying, Tell us now, How did you write all these words at his mouth? Then Baruch answered them, He pronounced all these words unto me with his mouth and I wrote them with ink in the book.

Jeremiah 36:19-22 Then said the princes unto Baruch, Go, hide yourself, both you and Jeremiah and let no man know where you be. And then they went in to the king into the court, but they laid up the roll in the chamber of Elishama the scribe.(doesn't say that Elishama was aware of this; maybe he was away).and told all the words in the ears of the king. So the king sent Jehudi to fetch the roll and he took it out of Elishama the scribe's chamber. And Jehudi read it in the ears of the king and in the ears of all the princes which stood beside the king. Now the king sat in the winterhouse in the ninth month and there was a fire on the hearth burning before him. 

Jeremiah 36:23 And it came to pass, that when Jehudi had read three or four leaves.(*), he cut it with the penknife and cast it into the fire that was on the hearth, until all the roll was consumed in the fire that was on the hearth. 

Jeremiah 36:23 And it came to pass, that when Jehudi had read three or four leaves.(pages of the book), he.(the king).cut it with the penknife and cast it into the fire that was on the hearth, until all the roll was consumed in the fire that was on the hearth.

Jeremiah 36:24 Yet they were not afraid, nor rent their garments, neither the king, nor any of his servants that heard all these words.

Jeremiah 36:24 Yet they were not afraid, nor rent.(when something momentous occured back then that affected their hearts, their custom was to tear their clothes, which was as much as saying 'this is awful that I'm responsible and need to change, because I'm in these clothes when I'm hearing these things and won't wear them again).their garments, neither the king, nor any of his servants that heard all these words.

Jeremiah 36:25-28 Nevertheless Elnathan and Delaiah and Gemariah had made intercession to the king that he would not burn the roll, but he would not hear them. But the king commanded Jerahmeel the son of Hammelech and Seraiah the son of Azriel and Shelemiah the son of Abdeel, to take Baruch the scribe and Jeremiah the prophet, but the LORD hid them.(how? verses 19-22 above). Then the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah, after that the king had burned the roll and the words which Baruch wrote at the mouth of Jeremiah, saying, Take thee again another roll and write in it all the former words that were in the first roll, which Jehoiakim the king of Judah has burned.

Jeremiah 36:29 And thou shalt say to Jehoiakim king of Judah, Thus says the LORD: You have burned this roll, saying, Why have you written therein, saying, The king of Babylon shall certainly come and destroy this land and shall cause to cease from thence man and beast.(he burnt it in contempt, not the least bit interested in what it said)?

Jeremiah 36:30 Therefore thus says the LORD of Jehoiakim king of Judah; He shall have none to sit upon the throne of David and his dead body shall be cast out in the day to the heat and in the night to the frost.

Jeremiah 36:31 And I will punish him and his seed and his servants for their iniquity and I will bring upon them and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem and upon the men of Judah, all the evil that I have pronounced against them.

Jeremiah 36:31 And I will punish.(original for 'punish' is 'attend to'; does God punish?).him and his seed and his servants for their iniquity and I will bring upon them and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem and upon the men of Judah, all the evil that I have pronounced against them.(closer to the original 'all the evil deserving them' can occur to them unless that is, they change; the automatic functioning of the universal law of reaping and sowing is always working, either for or against), but they hearkened not.(didn't listen to the warning, so as to change and be a better person).

Jeremiah 36:32 Then took Jeremiah another roll and gave it to Baruch the scribe, the son of Neriah, who wrote therein from the mouth of Jeremiah all the words of the book which Jehoiakim king of Judah had burned in the fire and there were added besides unto them many like words.

Jeremiah 37:1 And king Zedekiah the son of Josiah reigned instead of Coniah the son of Jehoiakim.(whose actual name was Jeconiah), whom Nebuchadrezzar.(another spelling for Nebuchadnezzar-II).king of Babylon made king in the land of Judah..(Nebuchadnezzar II made Zedekiah king in the land of Judah)

Jeremiah 37:2 But neither he, nor his servants, nor the people of the land, did hearken unto the words of the LORD, which he spake by the prophet Jeremiah.

Jeremiah 37:3 And Zedekiah the king sent Jehucal the son of Shelemiah and Zephaniah the son of Maaseiah the priest to the prophet Jeremiah, saying, Pray now unto the LORD our God for us.

Jeremiah 37:4,5 Now Jeremiah came in and went out among the people for they had not put him into prison. Then Pharaoh's army was come forth out of Egypt and when the Chaldeans that besieged Jerusalem heard tidings of them, they departed from Jerusalem.

Jeremiah 38:2 Thus saith the LORD, He that remains in this city shall die by the sword, by the famine and by the pestilence, but he that goes forth to the Chaldeans shall live, for he shall have his life for a prey.(Jeremiah 39:17,18).and shall live.

Jeremiah 38:6 Then took they Jeremiah and cast him into the dungeon of Malchiah the son of Hammelech, that was in the court of the prison and they let down Jeremiah with cords. And in the dungeon there was no water, but mire.(clay), so Jeremiah sunk in the mire.

Jeremiah 38:7-13 Now when Ebedmelech the Ethiopian, one of the eunuchs which was in the king's house.(king Zedekiah), heard that they had put Jeremiah in the dungeon; the king then sitting in the gate of Benjamin.(an area outside where a gate to his castle was, named after Benjamin); Ebedmelech went forth out of the king's house and spake to the king, saying, My lord the king, these men have done evil in all that they have done to Jeremiah the prophet, whom they have cast into the dungeon and he is like to die for hunger in the place where he is, for there is no more bread in the city. Then the king commanded Ebedmelech the Ethiopian, saying, Take from hence thirty men with thee and take up Jeremiah the prophet out of the dungeon, before he die. So Ebedmelech took the men with him and went into the house of the king under the treasury and took thence old cast.(used for drawing and/or pulling).clouts.(old rags of leather and cloth).and old rotten rags.(but still usable).and let them down by cords into the dungeon to Jeremiah. And Ebedmelech the Ethiopian said unto Jeremiah, Put now these old cast clouts and rotten rags under thine armholes under the cords. And Jeremiah did so. So they drew up Jeremiah with cords and took him up out of the dungeon and Jeremiah remained in the court of the prison.

Jeremiah 39:1 In the ninth year of Zedekiah king of Judah, in the tenth month, came Nebuchadrezzar.(a different spelling of Nebuchadnezzar-II).king of Babylon and all his army against Jerusalem and they besieged it.

Jeremiah 39:2 And in the eleventh year of Zedekiah, in the fourth month, the ninth day of the month, the city was broken up.

Jeremiah 39:3 And all the princes of the king of Babylon came in and sat in the middle gate, even Nergalsharezer, Samgarnebo, Sarsechim, Rabsaris, Nergalsharezer rabmag, with all the residue of the princes of the king of Babylon.

Jeremiah 39:3 And all the princes of the king of Babylon came in and sat in the middle gate, even Nergalsharezer.(according to the great historian Josephus in.Life and Against Apion.1:20, his name is Neriglissar, the one who murdered Evil-merodach and reigned in his stead), Samgarnebo, Sarsechim, Rabsaris, Nergalsharezer rabmag.(Concise Bible Dictionary states that, actually the second name of Nergalsharezer here is wrong and should be 'Nergal-shar-uzur, Rubu-emga' as found on bricks of the time, the 'Rubu-emga' is for Rabmag, a title, which means 'chief physician' attached to the king), with all the residue of the princes of the king of Babylon.

Jeremiah 39:4-9 And it came to pass, that when Zedekiah the king of Judah saw them and all the men of war, then they fled and went forth out of the city by night, by the way of the king's garden, by the gate betwixt the two walls and he went out the way of the plain. But the Chaldeans' army pursued after them and overtook Zedekiah in the plains of Jericho and when they had taken him, they brought him up to Nebuchadnezzar-II king of Babylon to Riblah in the land of Hamath, where he gave judgment upon him. Then the king of Babylon slew the sons of Zedekiah in Riblah before his eyes. Also the king of Babylon slew all the nobles of Judah. Moreover he put out Zedekiah's eyes and bound him with chains, to carry him to Babylon. And the Chaldeans burned the king's house and the houses of the people with fire and brake down the walls of Jerusalem. 

Jeremiah 39:9 Then Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard carried away captive into Babylon the remnant of the people that remained in the city and those that fell away, that fell to him, with the rest of the people that remained.

Jeremiah 39:10-14 But Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard left of the poor of the people which had nothing, in the land of Judah and gave them vineyards and fields at the same time.(he had a heart of kindness). Now Nebuchadnezzar-II king of Babylon gave charge concerning Jeremiah.to Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard, saying, Take him and look well to him and do him no harm, but do unto him even as he shall say unto thee.(he also had a kind heart). So Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard sent for Nebushasban, Rabsaris and Nergalsharezer Rabmag and all the king of Babylon's princes; Even they sent and took Jeremiah out of the court of the prison and committed him unto Gedaliah the son of Ahikam the son of Shaphan, that he should carry him home, so he dwelt among the people.

Jeremiah 39:15,16 Now the word of the LORD came unto Jeremiah, while he was shut up in the court of the prison, saying, Go and speak to Ebedmelech the Ethiopian, saying, Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Behold, I will bring my words upon this city for evil and not for good and they shall be accomplished in that day before you.(or, in front of him).

Jeremiah 39:17,18 But I will deliver you in that day, says the LORD and you shall not be given into the hand of the men of whom you are afraid. For I will surely deliver you and you shall not fall by the sword, but your life shall be for a prey unto you because you have put your trust in me, says the LORD.

Jeremiah 39:17,18 But I will deliver you in that day, says the LORD and you shall not be given into the hand of the men of whom you are afraid. For I will surely deliver you and you shall not fall by the sword, but your life shall be for a prey.(Jamieson, Fausset & Brown Commentary:."proverbial, to make one's escape with life, like a valuable spoil or prey that one carries off"; or, your life will be yours and not under another's control).unto you, because you have put your trust in me, says the LORD.

Jeremiah 40:1-4 The word that came to Jeremiah from the LORD, after that Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard had let him go from Ramah, when he had taken him being bound in chains among all that were carried away captive.(2Chronicles 36:10).of Jerusalem and Judah, which were carried away captive unto Babylon. And the captain of the guard took Jeremiah and said unto him, The LORD thy God has pronounced this evil upon this place. Now the LORD has brought it and done according as he had said, because of sinning against the LORD and have not obeyed his voice, therefore this thing is come upon you.(Nebuzaradan was a good man and smart; he could see how the woes upon the nation were due to how the people being evil and that Jeremiah was a good person who somehow got dragged into it all). And now, behold, I loose thee this day from the chains which were upon thine hand. If it seem good unto thee to come with me into Babylon, come and I will look well unto thee, but if it seem ill unto thee to come with me into Babylon, forbear.(hold back here and look around a bit); behold, all the land is before thee. Thither it seemeth good and convenient for thee to go, thither go. 

Jeremiah 40:5-7 Now while he was not yet gone back, he said, Go back also to Gedaliah the son of Ahikam the son of Shaphan, whom the king of Babylon has made governor over the cities of Judah and dwell with him among the people or go wheresoever it seemeth convenient unto thee to go. So the captain of the guard gave him victuals and a reward.(some money).and let him go. Then went Jeremiah unto Gedaliah the son of Ahikam to Mizpah and dwelt with him among the people that were left in the land. Now when all the captains of the forces which were in the fields, even they and their men, heard that the king of Babylon had made Gedaliah the son of Ahikam governor in the land and had committed unto him men and women and children and of the poor of the land, of them that were not carried away captive to Babylon;

Jeremiah 40:8 Then they came to Gedaliah to Mizpah, even Ishmael.(Ishmael, a bad dude as you'll see following down here; Gedaliah, a good man, being warned of what Ishmael was planning to do, just didn't listen to any inner guidance or any guidance from others about Ishmael's evil plans and he paid for his ineptness with his life).the son of Nethaniah and Johanan and Jonathan the sons of Kareah and Seraiah the son of Tanhumeth and the sons of Ephai the Netophathite and Jezaniah the son of a Maachathite, they and their men. 

Jeremiah 40:9-16 And Gedaliah the son of Ahikam the son of Shaphan sware unto them and to their men, saying, Fear not to serve the Chaldeans dwell in the land and serve the king of Babylon and it shall be well with you. As for me, behold, I will dwell at Mizpah to serve the Chaldeans, which will come unto us, but you, gather you wine and summer fruits and oil and put them in your vessels and dwell in your cities that you have taken. Likewise when all the Jews that were in Moab and among the Ammonites and in Edom and that were in all the countries, heard that the king of Babylon had left a remnant of Judah and that he had set over them Gedaliah the son of Ahikam the son of Shaphan. Even all the Jews returned out of all places whither they were driven and came to the land of Judah, to Gedaliah, unto Mizpah and gathered wine and summer fruits very much. Moreover Johanan the son of Kareah.(Johanan was a good guy who tries to warn Gedaliah, but Gedaliah didn't believe it; shows how deceitful Ishmael was for Gedaliah to believe Ishamael was his friend; similar to the corrupt and cruel conspirators who murdered Julius Caesar to gain position for advancing their own agenda).and all the captains of the forces that were in the fields, came to Gedaliah to Mizpah and said unto him, Dost thou certainly know that Baalis the king of the Ammonites has sent Ishmael the son of Nethaniah to slay thee? But Gedaliah the son of Ahikam believed them not. Then Johanan the son of Kareah spake to Gedaliah in Mizpah secretly, saying, Let me go, I pray thee and I will slay Ishmael the son of Nethaniah and no man shall know it, for why should he want to slay thee, except for that all the Jews which are gathered unto thee should be scattered and the remnant in Judah perish? But Gedaliah the son of Ahikam said unto Johanan the son of Kareah, Thou shalt not do this thing, for thou speakest falsely of Ishmael.

Jeremiah 41:1-18 Now it came to pass in the seventh month, that Ishmael the son of Nethaniah the son of Elishama, of the seed royal and the princes of the king, even ten men with him, came unto Gedaliah the son of Ahikam to Mizpah and there they did eat bread together in Mizpah. Then arose Ishmael the son of Nethaniah and the ten men that were with him and smote Gedaliah the son of Ahikam the son of Shaphan with the sword and slew him whom the king of Babylon had made governor over the land. Ishmael also slew all the Jews that were with him, even with Gedaliah, at Mizpah and the Chaldeans that were found there and the men of war. And it came to pass the second day after he had slain Gedaliah and no man knew it, that there came certain from Shechem, from Shiloh and from Samaria, even fourscore.(a score is twenty).men, having their beards shaven and their clothes rent and having cut themselves.(JFB Commentary:."a heathen custom, forbidden in the nation of Israel at this time {Leviticus 19:27,28; Deuteronomy 14:1}; these men were mostly from Samaria where the ten tribes, previous to their deportation, had fallen into heathen practices"), with offerings and incense in their hand, to bring them to the house of the LORD. And Ishmael the son of Nethaniah went forth from Mizpah to meet them, weeping all along as he went and it came to pass, as he met them, he said unto them, Come to Gedaliah the son of Ahikam.(he seemed so sincere and kind, but was deadly cruel:.Jeremiah 40:8). And it was so, when they came into the midst of the city, that Ishmael the son of Nethaniah slew them and cast them into the midst of the pit, he and the men that were with him. But ten men were found among them that said unto Ishmael, Slay us not, for we have treasures in the field, of wheat, and of barley and of oil and of honey. So he forbare and slew them not among their brethren. Now the pit wherein Ishmael had cast all the dead bodies of the men, whom he had slain because of Gedaliah, was it which Asa the king had made for fear of Baasha king of Israel and Ishmael the son of Nethaniah filled it with them that were slain. Then Ishmael carried away captive all the residue of the people that were in Mizpah, even the king's daughters and all the people that remained in Mizpah, whom Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard had committed to Gedaliah the son of Ahikam and Ishmael the son of Nethaniah carried them away captive and departed to go over to the Ammonites. But when Johanan the son of Kareah and all the captains of the forces that were with him heard of all the evil that Ishmael the son of Nethaniah had done, then they took all the men and went to fight with Ishmael the son of Nethaniah and found him by the great waters that are in Gibeon. Now it came to pass, that when all the people which were with Ishmael saw Johanan the son of Kareah and all the captains of the forces that were with him, then they were glad. So all the people that Ishmael had carried away captive from Mizpah cast about and returned and went unto Johanan the son of Kareah. But Ishmael the son of Nethaniah escaped from Johanan with eight men and went to the Ammonites. Then took Johanan the son of Kareah and all the captains of the forces that were with him, all the remnant of the people whom he had recovered from Ishmael the son of Nethaniah, from Mizpah, after that he.(Ishmael).had slain Gedaliah the son of Ahikam, even mighty men of war and the women and the children and the eunuchs, whom he had brought again from Gibeon. And they departed and dwelt in the habitation of Chimham, which is by Bethlehem, to go to enter into Egypt, because of the Chaldeans, for they were afraid of them, because Ishmael the son of Nethaniah had slain Gedaliah the son of Ahikam, whom the king of Babylon made governor in the land.

Jeremiah 42:11 Be not afraid of the king of Babylon.(which king of Babylon? Jeremiah 28:11), of whom you are afraid. Be not afraid of him, said the LORD, for I am with you to save you and to deliver you from his hand..(and it's interesting how God did this:.Jeremiah 25:9; 27:6-11; 43:10-13)

Jeremiah 43:10-13 And say unto them, Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Behold, I will send and take Nebuchadrezzar.(another spelling for Nebuchadnezzar-II).the king of Babylon, my servant and will set his throne upon these stones that I have hid and he shall spread his royal pavilion over them. And when he comes, he shall smite the land of Egypt and deliver such as are for death to death and such as are for captivity to captivity and such as are for the sword to the sword. And I will kindle a fire in the houses of the gods of Egypt and he shall burn them and carry them away captives and he shall array himself with the land of Egypt, as a shepherd puts on his garment and he shall go forth from thence in peace. He shall break also the images of Bethshemesh.(an idolatrous.temple in Egypt at that time; called by the Greeks Heliopolis and by the Egyptians it was called On:.Genesis 41:45; it was erected at the east of the Nile river {map}, a few miles north of a city then called Memphis; Bethshemesh was a statue in honor of the Sun and was 60 cubits high, having a base of 10 cubits and on top there was a miter {like the headdress of some religious leaders in costume} of a thousand pounds weight), that is in the land of Egypt and the houses of the gods of the Egyptians shall he burn with fire.

Jeremiah 44:1 The word that came to Jeremiah concerning all the Jews which dwell in the land of Egypt, which dwell at Migdol.(Easton's Dictionary:."an anciently strongly fortified place 12 miles from Pelusium, in the north of Egypt").and at Tahpanhes and at Noph and in the country of Pathros, saying,

Jeremiah 44:11 Therefore thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Behold, I will set my face against you for evil and to cut off all Judah.

Jeremiah 44:14 So that none of the remnant of Judah, which are gone into the land of Egypt to sojourn there, shall escape or remain, that they should return into the land of Judah, to the which they have a desire to return to dwell there, for none shall return but such as shall escape.(Jeremiah 50:20).

Many people today likewise have gone into the 'land of Egypt'. being.the evil ways of this world, but a few now have been called out; the rest will eventually follow..

Jeremiah 44:15 Then all the men which knew that their wives had burned incense unto other gods and all the women that stood by, a great multitude, even all the people that dwelt in the land of Egypt, in Pathros, answered Jeremiah, saying,

Jeremiah 44:16 As for the word that you have spoken unto us in the name of the LORD,.we will not.hearken unto you,

These were people of arrogance and pride, the wrong kind of pride and this just got worse right up to today:.Genesis 6:11-17; 1Samuel 8:7; Judges 2:19; Isaiah 47:7-11; Jeremiah 2:31; 5:3,4; 8:9; 18:11,12; Daniel 9;5-14; 2Timothy 3:1-8; Romans 1:21-32. They simply wanted to carry on life as they damn well saw fit and that meant, without God around. It's the same today. See the last 30 minutes of the movie.VAXXED, which shows what can happen when one stays in low consciousness.

Jeremiah 44:17 But we will certainly do whatsoever thing goes forth out of.our own.mouth, to burn incense unto the queen of heaven and to pour out drink offerings unto her, as we have done, we and our fathers, our kings and our princes, in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem, for then had we plenty of victuals and were well and saw no evil.

Jeremiah 44:17 But we will certainly do whatsoever thing goes forth out of our own mouth, to burn incense unto the queen of heaven.(Jeremiah 7:17,18,24).and to pour out drink offerings unto her, as we have done, we and our fathers, our kings and our princes, in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem, for then had we plenty of victuals.(food).and were well and saw no evil.

Everything seemed to be going fine with their adopting the many gods of other nations they now were worshiping, that is, going fine for the time being:.Joshua 24:20; Ecclesiastes 8:11; Isaiah 47:7,8,10; Hosea 5:4.

They wanted to be left alone (1Samuel 8:6-9,19,20; Psalms 73rd chapter; Isaiah 65:2-15; Jeremiah 2:31; 6:10,15-17; 32:30-33) with the religion and the life they made without the true God in it:.Jeremiah 5:25-31; 6:10; 9:2-6. They were not interested in anything of the true God's higher consciousness ways and were content with what they already had, something they could see and touch and were like this because they loved to be living in their own, though error prone, reality:.Isaiah 30:10; 65:2-8; Amos 9:10. They wanted to be left alone with idols they made (2Kings 17:29,30) and/or adopted to themselves, such as it is today, so God left them alone and went into hiding as it were:.Hosea 4:17. But God never left off His love for them and it's the same today about us:.Hebrews 13:5 "...for he has said, I will never leave you, nor forsake you.".It's like you and one of your kids who takes off on his or her own, not wanting anymore advice from mom or dad; how does your heart feel? So, because God never gives up on any of us, the Old Testament people, because their heart was somewhat different than ours is today, God caused them to go in various captivities, presenting the situations for the people back then to decide they again wanted God in their lives. And this was necessary time and time again because the people weren't wanting to be anchored in God at all. Today minds are different because after thousands of years of mankind's history, that history has become part of the collective consciousness. From it we've all drawn information when we've had questions or wondered about something. We've all been brought up in an environment mostly set by others, our contemporaries. God deals with us differently from Old Testament times in that captivities.(*).have taken a 'back burner on the stove'. Today it's the pressures of evils increasing that is bringing mankind to wonder what's going on that all these evils are encircling us. It's the gentlest way to awaken mankind to return to God, the God who is always close.

Jeremiah 44:18 But since we left off to burn incense to the queen of heaven and to pour out drink offerings unto her, we have wanted all things and have been consumed by the sword and by the famine.

Jeremiah 44:18 But since we left off.(left off from Creator-God in favor of the queen of heaven {the two verses above}).to burn incense to the queen of heaven.(the ancient Israelites had many gods {small 'g'} as they continued on with the ways of the pagan nations around them, ways like Egypt had that they left to get away from; go figure!:.2Kings 17:29,30).and to pour out drink offerings unto her, we have wanted all things.(once they left off {Jeremiah 44:15-17; Jeremiah 32:30-33; Deuteronomy 31:17; Psalms 10:4,5} attention to the things of Creator-God, they began to experience the negatives, including the lacks of life; that's just the way it is and for a good purpose:.Deuteronomy 8:16 "...that he might humble you and that he might prove you, to do you good at your latter end.").and have been consumed by the sword and by the famine.

Jeremiah 44:19 And when we burned incense to the queen of heaven.(see verse just above).and poured out drink offerings unto her, we continued to make cakes to worship her and pour out drink offerings unto her, but without our men.(lost many men in wars)?

Jeremiah 44:20,21 Then Jeremiah said unto all the people, to the men and to the women and to all the people which had given him that answer, saying, The incense that you burned in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem, you and your fathers, your kings and your princes and the people of the land, did not the LORD remember them.and came it not into his mind?

Jeremiah 44:20,21 Then Jeremiah said unto all the people, to the men and to the women and to all the people which had given him that answer, saying, The incense that you burned in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem, you and your fathers, your kings and your princes and the people of the land, did not the LORD remember them.(God was well aware of their wayward ways, in spite of what the people thought at the time: verse 17 just above).and came it not into his mind?

Jeremiah 44:22 So that the LORD could no longer bear, because of the evil of your doings and because of the abominations which you have committed; therefore is your land a desolation and an astonishment and a curse, without an inhabitant, as at this day.

Jeremiah 44:23 Because you have burned incense and because you have sinned against the LORD and have not obeyed the voice of the LORD, nor walked in his law, nor in his statutes, nor in his testimonies; therefore this evil is happened unto you, as at this day.

Jeremiah 44:24 Moreover Jeremiah said unto all the people, and to all the women, Hear the word of the LORD, all Judah that are in the land of Egypt.

Jeremiah 44:25 Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, saying; You and your wives have both spoken with your mouths and fulfilled with your hand, saying, We will surely perform our vows that we have vowed, to burn incense to the queen of heaven and to pour out drink offerings unto her. You will surely accomplish your vows and surely perform your vows.

Jeremiah 44:26-28 Therefore hear you the word of the LORD, all Judah that dwell in the land of Egypt; Behold, I have sworn by my great name, says the LORD, that my name shall no more be named in the mouth of any man of Judah in all the land of Egypt, saying, The Lord GOD lives. Behold, I will watch over them for evil and not for good and all the men of Judah that are in the land of Egypt shall be consumed by the sword and by the famine, until there be an end of them. Yet a small number that escape the sword shall return out of the land of Egypt into the land of Judah and all the remnant of Judah that are gone into the land of Egypt to sojourn.there shall know whose words shall stand, mine or theirs.

Jeremiah 44:29 And this shall be a sign unto you, says the LORD, that I will punish you in this place, that you may know that my words shall surely stand against you for evil.

Jeremiah 44:29 And this shall be a sign unto you, says the LORD, that I will punish.(original 'attend upon' or, deal with the way you are; the Creator is never vindictive).you in this place, that you may know that my words shall surely stand against you for evil.(how do these words stand against us for evil?).

Jeremiah 44:30 Thus says the LORD; Behold.(or, 'take note', 'notice'), I will give Pharaoh Hophra king of Egypt into the hand of his enemies and into the hand of them that seek his life, as I gave Zedekiah king of Judah into the hand of Nebuchadrezzar-II.(Daniel 2:1).king of Babylon, his enemy and that sought his life.

Jeremiah 46:1,2 The word of the LORD which came to Jeremiah the prophet against the Gentiles; Against Egypt, against the army of Pharaohnecho king of Egypt, which was by the river Euphrates in Carchemish, which Nebuchadrezzar-II king of Babylon smote in the fourth year of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king of Judah.

Jeremiah 46:10 For this is the day of the Lord GOD of hosts, a day of vengeance.(Romans 12:19), that he may avenge him of his adversaries and the sword shall devour and it shall be satiate.(satisfy).and made drunk with their blood, for the Lord GOD of hosts has a sacrifice in the north country by the river Euphrates.

God used the ancient Chaldeans to overthrow those He was talking about in verses 1,2.

Jeremiah 46:19,20 O thou daughter dwelling in Egypt, furnish thyself to go into captivity, for Noph shall be waste and desolate without an inhabitant. Egypt is like a very fair heifer, but destruction comes out of the north.

Jeremiah 46:24 The daughter of Egypt shall be confounded. She shall be delivered into the hand of the people of the north.

Jeremiah 46:25 The LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, saith; Behold, I will punish the multitude of No and Pharaoh and Egypt, with their god and their kings, even Pharaoh and all them that trust in him.

Jeremiah 46:28 Fear you not, O Jacob my servant, says the LORD. For I am with thee, for I will make a full end of all the nations whither I have driven you. But I will not make a full end of you, but correct you in measure, yet will I not leave you wholly unpunished.

Jeremiah 46:28 Fear you not, O Jacob my servant.(ancient Jacob's name was changed to the name of Israel {*}; Israel today is an Israel of the spirit, in you if you are of God), says the LORD. For I am with thee, for I will make a full end of all the nations whither I have driven you. But I will not make a full end of you, but correct you in measure.(Proverbs 3:12; Hebrews 12:6; but God corrects by the automatic functioning of the universal laws set up at the beginning? {*}), yet will I not leave you wholly unpunished.(original for word 'unpunished' is 'wholly.absolved', that is the Creator will still be working in lives to bring people around to seeing that there is only one way and that way wasn't the way they had been living by default; the Creator works by having set up laws where one reaps what he has sown and at times the Creator works by directly influencing circumstances, as He he did in Job's case and in Nebuchadnezzar's case and Paul's case, to name only three).

Jeremiah 47:1 The word of the LORD that came to Jeremiah the prophet against the Philistines, before that Pharaoh.(which pharaoh?).smote Gaza.

Jeremiah 47:4 Because of the day that cometh to spoil all the Philistines and to cut off from Tyrus and Zidon every helper that remaineth, for the LORD will spoil the Philistines, the remnant of the country of Caphtor.(Deuteronomy 2:23).

Jeremiah 48:1 Against Moab thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Woe unto Nebo! for it is spoiled. Kiriathaim is confounded and taken. Misgab is confounded and dismayed.

Jeremiah 48:10 Cursed be he that does the work of the LORD deceitfully and cursed be he that keeps back his sword from blood..(?)

Jeremiah 49:3 Howl, O Heshbon, for Ai.(one of the royal cities of the Canaanites:.Joshua 10:1,2).is spoiled:. Cry you daughters of Rabbah, gird you with sackcloth; lament and run to and fro by the hedges, for their king shall go into captivity and his priests and his princes together.

Jeremiah 49:4 Wherefore gloriest you in the valleys, your flowing valley, O backsliding daughter? that trusted in her treasures, saying, Who shall come unto me?.(Clarke's Commentary:."Though your valleys be fruitful, yet glory not in them. Though thou have much political and military power, do not trust in them, nor in the multitude of your cities. A stronger than thou is coming against you.").(Jeremiah 21:13)

Jeremiah 49:5 Behold, I will bring a fear upon you, says the Lord GOD of hosts, from all those that be about you and you shall be driven out every man right forth and none shall gather up him that wanders.

Jeremiah 49:6 And afterward I will bring again the captivity of the children of Ammon, says the LORD.

Jeremiah 49:15 For, lo, I will make thee small among the heathen and despised among men. 

Jeremiah 49:16 Thy terribleness.(powerfulness).has deceived you and the pride of your heart.(kinds of pride), O you that dwell in the clefts of the rock.(the rock), that holds the height of the hill. Though you make thy nest as high as the eagle, I will bring you down from thence, says the LORD.

Jeremiah 49:33 And Hazor shall be a dwelling for dragons and a desolation for ever. There shall no man abide there, nor any son of man dwell in it.

Jeremiah 50:1 The word that the LORD spake against Babylon and against the land of the Chaldeans by Jeremiah the prophet.

Jeremiah 50:2 Declare you among the nations and publish and set up a standard. Publish and conceal not Say, Babylon is taken, Bel is confounded, Merodach is broken in pieces. Her idols are confounded and her images are broken in pieces.

Jeremiah 50:3-12 For out of the north there cometh up a nation against her, which shall make her land desolate and none shall dwell therein. They shall remove, they shall depart, both man and beast. In those days and in that time, saith the LORD, the children of Israel shall come, they and the children of Judah together, going and weeping. They shall go and seek the LORD their God. They shall ask the way to Zion with their faces thitherward, saying, Come and let us join ourselves to the LORD in a perpetual covenant that shall not be forgotten. 

Jeremiah 50:6 My people have been lost sheep. Their shepherds have caused them to go astray. They have turned them away on the mountains. They have gone from mountain to hill, they have forgotten their resting place.

Jeremiah 50:7-12 All that found them have devoured them and their adversaries said, We offend not because they have sinned against the LORD, the habitation of justice, even the LORD, the hope of their fathers. Remove out of the midst of Babylon and go forth out of the land of the Chaldeans and be as the he goats before the flocks. For lo, I will raise and cause to come up against Babylon an assembly of great nations from the north country and they shall set themselves in array against her. From thence she shall be taken. Their arrows shall be as of a mighty expert man; none shall return in vain. And Chaldea shall be a spoil. All that spoil her shall be satisfied, saith the LORD. Because ye were glad, because you rejoiced, O you destroyers of mine heritage, because you are grown fat as the heifer at grass and bellow as bulls. Your mother shall be sore confounded. She that bare you shall be ashamed. Behold, the hindermost of the nations shall be a wilderness, a dry land and a desert.

Jeremiah 50:13 Because of the wrath of the LORD it shall not be inhabited, but it shall be wholly desolate. Every one that goes by Babylon shall be astonished and hiss at all her plagues.

Jeremiah 50:14-19 Put yourselves in array against Babylon round about. All ye that bend the bow, shoot at her, spare no arrows, for she hath sinned against the LORD. Shout against her round about. She hath given her hand. Her foundations are fallen. Her walls are thrown down. For it is the vengeance of the LORD. Take vengeance upon her. As she hath done, do unto her. Cut off the sower from Babylon and him that handleth the sickle in the time of harvest. For fear of the oppressing sword they shall turn every one to his people and they shall flee every one to his own land. Israel is a scattered sheep; the lions have driven him away. First the king of Assyria hath devoured him and last this Nebuchadrezzar-II king of Babylon hath broken his bones. Therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, behold, I will punish the king of Babylon and his land, as I have punished.(original for word 'punished' is 'attend to').the king of Assyria. And I will bring Israel again to his habitation and he shall feed on Carmel and Bashan and his soul shall be satisfied upon mount Ephraim and Gilead.

Jeremiah 50:20 In those days and in that time, says the LORD, the iniquity of Israel.shall be sought for and there shall be none and the sins of Judah and they shall not be found, for I will pardon them whom I reserve.(original for word 'reserve' is 'whom I leave as a remnant').

Jeremiah 50:21-38 Go up against the land of Merathaim, even against it and against the inhabitants of Pekod. Waste and utterly destroy after them, saith the LORD and do according to all that I have commanded thee. A sound of battle is in the land and of great destruction. How is the hammer of the whole earth cut asunder and broken! how is Babylon become a desolation among the nations! I have laid a snare for thee and thou art also taken, O Babylon and thou wast not aware. Thou art found and also caught, because thou hast striven against the LORD. The LORD hath opened his armoury and hath brought forth the weapons of his indignation, for this is the work of the Lord GOD of hosts in the land of the Chaldeans. Come against her from the utmost border, open her storehouses. Cast her up as heaps and destroy her utterly. Let nothing of her be left. Slay all her bullocks. Let them go down to the slaughter. Woe unto them! for their day is come, the time of their visitation. The voice of them that flee and escape out of the land of Babylon, to declare in Zion the vengeance of the LORD our God, the vengeance of his temple. Call together the archers against Babylon. All ye that bend the bow, camp against it round about. Let none thereof escape. Recompense her according to her work, according to all that she hath done, do unto her. For she hath been proud against the LORD, against the Holy One of Israel. Therefore shall her young men fall in the streets and all her men of war shall be cut off in that day, saith the LORD. Behold, I am against thee, O thou most proud, saith the Lord GOD of hosts, for thy day is come, the time that I will visit thee. And the most proud shall stumble and fall and none shall raise him up and I will kindle a fire in his cities and it shall devour all round about him. Thus saith the LORD of hosts: The children of Israel and the children of Judah were oppressed together and all that took them captives held them fast. They refused to let them go. Their Redeemer is strong. The LORD of hosts is his name. He shall throughly plead their cause, that he may give rest to the land and disquiet the inhabitants of Babylon. A sword is upon the Chaldeans, saith the LORD and upon the inhabitants of Babylon and upon her princes and upon her wise men. A sword is upon the liars and they shall dote.(be foolish and not take what's happening seriously, instead keeping their attention on themselves). A sword is upon her mighty men and they shall be dismayed. A sword is upon their horses and upon their chariots and upon all the mingled people that are in the midst of her and they shall become as women. A sword is upon her treasures and they shall be robbed. A drought is upon her waters and they shall be dried up, for it is the land of graven images and they are mad upon their idols.(they loved their idols).

Jeremiah 50:39 Therefore the wild beasts of the desert with the wild beasts of the islands shall dwell there and the owls shall dwell therein and it shall be no more inhabited for ever, neither shall it be dwelt in from generation to generation.

Jeremiah 50:40-46 As God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah and the neighbour cities thereof, saith the LORD, so shall no man abide there, neither shall any son of man dwell therein. Behold, a people shall come from the north and a great nation and many kings shall be raised up from the coasts of the earth.(this was Cyrus, king of Persia and over the Medes and Persians). They shall hold the bow and the lance. They are cruel and will not shew mercy. Their voice shall roar like the sea and they shall ride upon horses, every one put in array, like a man to the battle, against thee, O daughter of Babylon. The king of Babylon hath heard the report of them and his hands waxed feeble. Anguish took hold of him and pangs as of a woman in travail. Behold, he shall come up like a lion from the swelling of Jordan unto the habitation of the strong, but I will make them suddenly run away from her and who is a chosen man, that I may appoint over her? for who is like me? and who will appoint me the time? and who is that shepherd that will stand before me? Therefore hear you the counsel of the LORD, that he hath taken against Babylon and his purposes, that he has purposed against the land of the Chaldeans. Surely the least of the flock shall draw them out, surely he shall make their habitation desolate with them. At the noise of the taking of Babylon the earth is moved and the cry is heard among the nations.

Jeremiah 51:15-18 He has made the earth by his power, he has established the world by his wisdom and has stretched out the heaven by his understanding. When he utters his voice, there is a multitude of waters in the heavens and he causes the vapours to ascend from the ends of the earth. He makes lightnings with rain and brings forth the wind out of his treasures. Every man is brutish by his knowledge is confounded by the graven image, for his molten image is falsehood and there is no breath in them. They are vanity, the work of errors. In the time of their visitation they shall perish.

He makes lightnings with rain and brings forth the wind out of his treasures. Every man is brutish.().by his knowledge.(compared to what Creator-God does, man is so far back on the road as to not even be seen). Every founder.(one in a foundry that makes an image representing some pagan god).is confounded.(original 'dried up by', that is, these images have no value to mankind apart from stupid beliefs in falsehoods that do nothing for him).by the graven image, for his molten image is falsehood and there is no breath in them. They are vanity, the work of errors. In the time of their visitation they shall perish.(in the time of life of those believing in such idiotic things, they'll come to see the worthlessness of such silly pursuits).

Jeremiah 51:26 And they shall not take of you a stone for a corner, nor a stone for foundations, but you shall be desolate for ever, says the LORD.

Jeremiah 51:34.Nebuchadrezzar the king of Babylon hath devoured me, he has crushed me. He has made me an empty vessel and swallowed me up like a dragon. He has filled his belly with my delicates and then cast me out.

Jeremiah 51:42 The sea is come up upon Babylon. She is covered with the multitude of the waves thereof.

Jeremiah 51:44 And I will punish Bel in Babylon and I will bring forth out of his mouth that which he has swallowed up and the nations shall not flow together any more unto him; yea, the wall of Babylon shall fall.

Jeremiah 51:56 Because the spoiler is come upon her, even upon Babylon and her mighty men are taken, every one of their bows is broken; for the LORD God of recompences shall surely requite.

Jeremiah 51:58 Thus says the LORD of hosts; The broad walls of Babylon shall be utterly broken and her high gates shall be burned with fire and the people shall labour in vain and the folk in the fire and they shall be weary.

Jeremiah 51:63,64 And it shall be when you have made an end of reading this book, that you shall bind a stone to it and cast it into the midst of Euphrates. And you shall say, Thus shall Babylon sink and shall not rise from the evil that I will bring upon her. And they shall be weary. Thus far are the words of Jeremiah.
