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

Jeremiah 10:3,4 For the customs of the people are vain. For one cuts a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe. They deck it with silver and with gold. They fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not.
And then sing merry christmas tunes:.Galatians 4:8-11.
Jeremiah 10:5 They are upright as the palm tree, but speak not. They must needs be borne.(perhaps they have yet to be born), because they cannot go.(move). Be not afraid of them, for they cannot do evil, neither also is it in them to do good.

Jeremiah 10:6 Forasmuch as there is none like unto you, o Lord; you are great and your name is great in might.
God's greatness.
Jeremiah 10:7 Who would not fear thee, O King of nations? for to you does it appertain. Forasmuch as among all the wise men of the nations and in all their kingdoms, there is none like unto you.

Jeremiah 10:8 But they are altogether brutish and foolish. The stock is a doctrine of vanities.
Barnes Notes:."Rather, the instruction of idols is a piece of wood. That is what they are themselves and 'ex nihilo nihil fit' meaning 'from nothingness, nothing is made'.
Jeremiah 10:9 Silver spread into plates is brought from Tarshish, and gold from Uphaz, the work of the workman and of the hands of the founder. Blue and purple is their clothing.(made from expensive dyes, only the wealthy could afford to wear). They are all the work of cunning men.(done by the best artisans of society).

Jeremiah 10:10 But the Lord is the true God, he is the living God and an everlasting king.(1Timothy 1:17). At his wrath the Earth shall tremble and the nations shall not be able to abide his indignation.

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

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

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

Jeremiah 10:14 Every man is brutish in his knowledge. Every founder is confounded by the graven image. For his molten image is falsehood and there is no breath in them.
He or she believes the things they worship (what does worship mean?) are good for them, not really thinking of the temporality of life and how so many things are simply time wasters.
Jeremiah 10:15 They are vanity and the work of errors. In the time of their visitation they perish.
Jeremiah 10:15 They are vanity and the work of errors.(people don't do things that they think they are in error about, so obviously his intuition has dried up {'dried up' is original for word 'confounded' in verse 14 above} otherwise he would not have started in the direction he took in the first place). In the time of their visitation they perish.

They thought that by giving attention to ego things, they were in line with purpose of the God they believed in and would receive benefits from him.

Jeremiah 10:21 For the pastors are become brutish and have not sought God. Therefore they shall not prosper and all their flocks shall be scattered.

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

Jeremiah 10:23 O God, I know that the way of man is not in himself. It is not in man that walks to direct his steps.
Why is it not in man to direct his own life?.Proverbs 14:12. So it is important to be in line with the laws the Great Infinite One made if one is to expect anything:.James 1:6-8. If you're not in alignment with the good frequencies that come from this invisible energy we call God, how then can any good be expected?.Luke 11:11-13. Negative thinking has been limiting one's life and is keeping up a wall, preventing good energies to come in.(*). See the great new documentary.The Grand Self.to help you out of self-limitation.
Jeremiah 10:24 God correct me, but with judgment, not in your anger, lest you bring me to nothing.
Correct me enough so I learn (Hebrews 12:5,6), not so much that I'm injured and/or close to being wiped out; 'let it be a thing of the mind God that I see in my meditation'.
Jeremiah 11:3 And say you unto them, Thus says God of Israel; Cursed be the man that obeys not the words of this covenant,
Speaking here of the old covenant, now abolished, but it shows God always wants us to latch onto the better way and the better way is love:.Deuteronomy 5:29; 1John 4:7-16.
Jeremiah 11:4 Which I commanded your fathers in the day that I brought them forth out of the land of Egypt, from the iron furnace, saying, Obey my voice and do them, according to all which I command you. So shall you be my people and I will be your God.

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

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

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

Jeremiah 11:8 Yet they obeyed not, nor inclined their ear.(*), but walked every one in the imagination of their evil heart.(Isaiah 30:10). Therefore I will bring upon them all the words of this covenant, which I commanded them to do, but they did them not.
Jeremiah 44:16,17.
Jeremiah 11:9-12 And God said unto me, A conspiracy is found among the men of Judah and among the inhabitants of Jerusalem. They are turned back to the iniquities of their forefathers, which refused to hear my words and they went after other Gods to serve them. The house of Israel and the house of Judah have broken my covenant which I made with their fathers. Therefore God says, Behold, I will bring evil upon them, which they shall not be able to escape and though they shall cry unto me, I will not hearken unto them. Then shall the cities of Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem go and cry unto the gods unto whom they offer incense, but they shall not save them at all in the time of their trouble.
Jeremiah 11:9-12 And God said unto me, A conspiracy is found among the men of Judah and among the inhabitants of Jerusalem.(the principles can be applied anytime in present day history as well, anywhere they fit). They are turned back to the iniquities of their forefathers, which refused to hear my words and they went after other Gods to serve them. The house of Israel and the house of Judah have broken my covenant which I made with their fathers. Therefore God says, Behold, I will bring evil upon them, which they shall not be able to escape and though they shall cry unto me, I will not hearken unto them.(not immediately, but later; people are here to learn lessons). Then shall the cities of Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem go and cry unto the Gods unto whom they offer incense.(what are those Gods today but money and power, most often used to maintain selfish advantage of the few over the many), but they shall not save them at all in the time of their trouble.
Jeremiah 11:13 For according to the number of your cities were your Gods, O Judah.(they had concocted so many false Gods, because they just didn't want the only true real God in their lives:.Jeremiah 44:16,17).and according to the number of the streets of Jerusalem have you set up altars to that shameful thing, even altars to burn incense unto Baal.

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

Jeremiah 11:18,19 And God has given me knowledge of it and now I know it. Then you showed me their doings. But I was like a lamb or an ox that is brought to the slaughter and I knew not that they had devised devices against me, saying, Let us destroy the tree with the fruit thereof and let us cut him off from the land of the living, that his name may be no more remembered.
The low consciousness of man can be wicked:.Isaiah 32:7; Psalms 10:2,3.
Jeremiah 11:20 But, O God that judges righteously, that tries the reins and the heart, let me see your vengeance on them, for unto you have I revealed my cause.

Jeremiah 11:21 Therefore thus says God regarding the men of Anathoth that seek your life, saying, Prophesy not in the name of God or you'll die not by our hand.
Anathoth was Jeremiah's birthplace:.Jeremiah 1:1. The people there thought he was nuts and rejected the words of warning he told them, even threatening to kill him.
Jeremiah 11:22 Therefore thus says God, Behold, I will punish.(original is 'attend to'; that is, it is an automatic thing that what evil is in one's mind will come back upon that person amplified to the extent of one's involvment in evil; it is a mental thing, in that those steeped in evil ways, have steeped evil ways come back onto them).them. The young men shall die by the sword and their sons and their daughters shall die by famine.

Jeremiah 12:1 Righteous are you God, when I plead with you. Yet let me talk with you of your judgments.(let me ask you a few questions). Wherefore does the way of the wicked prosper?.(*).Wherefore are all they happy that deal very treacherously?
Job 9:24 "The Earth is given into the hand of the wicked..."
Joshua 24:20.
Jeremiah 12:2 You have planted them, yea, they have taken root. They grow, yea, they bring forth fruit. You are near in their mouth and far from their reins.
They knew God (Jeremiah 44:15,16) but preferred their own low consciousness ways:.Psalms 7:9; Romans 1:21.
Jeremiah 12:3 But you, O God, know me. You have seen me and tried mine heart toward you. Pull them out like sheep for the slaughter and prepare them for the day of slaughter.
Jeremiah delivered warnings from God to these people, but regretfully, this was the result: Jeremiah 44:16,17.
Jeremiah 12:4 How long shall the land mourn and the herbs of every field wither, for the wickedness of them that dwell therein? The beasts are consumed and the birds, because they said, He shall not see our last end.

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

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

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

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

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

Jeremiah 12:11 They have made it desolate and being desolate it mourns unto me. The whole land is made desolate, because no man lays it to heart,
No one cares what is causing desolation both in people's lives and the environment supporting humanity and most do nothing to turn it around. What could be done to turn to God again?
Jeremiah 12:12 The spoilers are come upon all high places through the wilderness, for the sword of the Lord shall devour from the one end of the land even to the other end of the land and no flesh shall have peace.

Jeremiah 12:13 They have sown wheat, but shall reap thorns. They have put themselves to pain, but shall not profit and they shall be ashamed of your revenues because of the fierce anger of the Lord.
Maybe they'll see the reason why their profits are decreasing and turn to God; how? why should they turn to God?.Lamentations 3:25 "God is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeks him."
Jeremiah 13:10 This evil people, which refuse to hear my words.(*), which walk in the imagination of their heart.(Jeremiah 18:10-12).and walk after other gods.(which they did with gusto and which they do today), to serve them and to worship them, shall even be as this girdle, which is good for nothing.(John 15:5).

Jeremiah 13:16 Give glory to God, before he causes darkness in front of your feet and you stumble upon the dark mountains and while you look for light, he turns it into the shadow of death and makes it thick darkness.
These things were written for us today:.1Corinthians 10:11 "Now all these things happened unto them for examples and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come."
Jeremiah 13:17 But if you will not hear it, my soul shall weep in secret places for your pride and mine eye shall weep sore and run down with tears, because God's flock is carried away captive.

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

Jeremiah 13:19 The cities of the south shall be shut up and none shall open them. Judah shall be carried away captive, all of it, it shall be wholly carried away captive.
2Chronicles 36:10.
Jeremiah 13:23 Can the Ethiopian change his skin or the leopard his spots? If so then you also can do good, that are accustomed to do evil.
Matthew Henry's Concise Commentary: We cannot get clear of it by any power of our own. But Almighty grace is able to change the Ethiopian's skin. Neither natural depravity, nor strong habits of sin, form an obstacle to the working of God.

In other words, they just can't change. That's why Christ came to deal with sin. Otherwise the people just would have no hope on their own to become spiritual, remaining in the darkeness of their soul:.2Corinthians 3:16. That's why Alcoholics Anonymous introduces the spiritual aspect to those needing help to get out of the prison of evil they've been in.

Jeremiah 13:24 Therefore will I scatter them as the stubble that passeth away by the wind of the wilderness.

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

Jeremiah 13:26 Therefore will I discover your skirts upon thy face, that your shame may appear.
Ashamed that they were like this and so wanted to hide their faces.
Jeremiah 13:27 I have seen your adulteries and your neighings.(Jeremiah 5:7,8), the lewdness of your whoredom and your abominations on the hills in the fields. Woe unto you, O Jerusalem! Will you not be made clean and if so, when shall that start?

Jeremiah 14:7 God, though our iniquities testifies against us.(how?), do it for your name's sake.(in other words, remember that you are gracious and merciful), for our backslidings are many. We have sinned.

Jeremiah 14:10 Thus says God unto this people, Many of you have loved to wander and haven't refrained the feet. Because of this God doesn't accept them and will remember their iniquity and visit their sins.

Jeremiah 14:14 Then God said unto me, The prophets prophesy.lies in my name. I sent them not, neither have I commanded them, neither spake I unto them. They prophesy unto you a false vision and divination and a thing of nought and the deceit of their heart.
Showing that these prophets were of the false kind.
Jeremiah 14:15 Therefore thus says God concerning the prophets that prophesy in my name and I sent them not, yet they say, Sword and famine shall not be in this land; By sword and famine shall those prophets be consumed.

Jeremiah 14:16-20 And the people to whom they prophesy shall be cast out in the streets of Jerusalem because of the famine and the sword and they shall have none to bury them, them, their wives, nor their sons, nor their daughters, for I will pour their wickedness upon them. Therefore you shall say this word unto them; Let mine eyes run down with tears night and day and let them not cease, for the virgin daughter of my people is broken with a great breach, with a very grievous blow. If I go forth into the field, then behold the slain with the sword and if I enter into the city, then behold them that are sick with famine! Yea, both the prophet and the priest go about into a land that they know not. Have you utterly rejected Judah? has your soul lothed Zion? Why have you smitten us and there is no healing for us? We looked for peace and there is no good and for the time of healing and behold trouble! We acknowledge, O God, our wickedness and the iniquity of our fathers, for we have sinned

Jeremiah 14:21 Do not abhor us, for your name's sake, do not disgrace the throne of your glory. Remember, break not your covenant with us.
A covenant is an agreement; God's agreement today is that He has set up multiversal laws that affect us and all out there in the cosmos and He changes His plans as things go along.
Jeremiah 14:22 Are there any among the vanities of the Gentiles that can cause rain or can the heavens give showers? Are not you he, O God? Therefore we will wait upon you, for you have made all these things.

Jeremiah 15:1 Then said God unto me.(Barnes Notes: Here begins God's response to Jeremiah's prayer in Jeremiah 14:7 for the people), Though Moses and Samuel stood before me, yet my mind could not be toward this people. Cast them out of my sight and let them go forth.

Jeremiah 15:2 And it shall come to pass, if they say unto thee, Whither shall we go forth? then you shall tell them, Thus says the Lord; Such as are for death, to death and such as are for the sword, to the sword and such as are for the famine, to the famine and such as are for the captivity, to the captivity.
Some of you will die naturally, some by the sword, some as a result of famine and some will go into captivity:.2Chronicles 36:10.
Jeremiah 15:3-5 And I will appoint over them four kinds, says the Lord, the sword to slay and the dogs to tear and the fowls of the heaven and the beasts of the Earth, to devour and destroy. And I will cause them to be removed into all kingdoms of the Earth, because of Manasseh the son of Hezekiah king of Judah, for that which he did in Jerusalem. For who shall have pity upon you, O Jerusalem? or who shall bemoan you? or who shall go aside to ask how you do? 

Jeremiah 15:6 You have forsaken me, says the Lord, you are gone backward, therefore will I stretch out my hand against you and destroy you. I am weary with repenting.
God was weary with always changing his mind and then the people would go again and again and again (?) and do the same things, never really changing. Never changing because they didn't have the heart back then to change. They do today.(Acts 17:30).as more of the spirit is made available as the world inches into a higher consciousness. How to accelerate it, be rewarded and benefit all of humanity in the process. As one aligns with God, God aligns with you. It's a two way street, a two way street the ancients just never could do on their own. Now we have a 'secret weapon' in the scenario of good and evil and we can win:.Colossians 1:27  "...Christ in you, the hope of glory."
Jeremiah 15:7 And I will fan them with a fan in the gates of the land; I will bereave them of children, I will destroy my people, since they return not from their ways.
Romans 1:21.
Jeremiah 15:13 Your substance and your treasures will I give to the spoil without price and that for all your sins, even in all your borders.

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

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

Jeremiah 15:16 Your words were found and I did eat them and your word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart, for I am called by your name, O Lord God of hosts.

Jeremiah 15:17 I sat not in the assembly of the mockers, nor rejoiced. I sat alone because of thy hand, for you have filled me with indignation.

Jeremiah 15:18 Why is my pain perpetual and my wound incurable, which refuses to be healed? Will you be altogether unto me as a liar and as waters that fail?

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

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

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

Jeremiah 16:1-9 The word of the Lord came also unto me, saying, You shall not take you a wife, neither shall you have sons or daughters in this place, for thus says the Lord concerning the sons and concerning the daughters that are born in this place and concerning their mothers that bare them and concerning their fathers that begat them in this land, They shall die of grievous deaths. They shall not be lamented, neither shall they be buried. But they shall be as dung upon the face of the Earth and they shall be consumed by the sword and by famine and their carcasses shall be food for the fowls of heaven and for the beasts of the Earth. For thus says the Lord, Enter not into the house of mourning, neither go to lament nor bemoan them, for I have taken away my peace from this people, says the Lord, even lovingkindness and mercies. Both the great and the small shall die in this land. They shall not be buried, neither shall men lament for them, nor cut themselves, nor make themselves bald for them..(pagan.practices.of.mourning.stupidly.adopted by those God wanted Jeremiah to make a pronouncement against, which would warn them of the calamity to come unless their ways changed).Neither shall men tear.(original for word 'tear' is 'break bread', that is, have a funeral feast to console those grieving).themselves for them in mourning, to comfort them for the dead. Neither shall men give them the cup of consolation to drink for their father or for their mother. You shall not also go into the house of feasting.(JFB: 'house of feasting' as distinguished from mourning feasts. Have no more to do with this people whether in mourning or joyous feasts, was the message), to sit with them to eat and to drink. For thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel; Behold, I will cause to cease out of this place in your eyes and in your days, the voice of mirth and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom and the voice of the bride.

Jeremiah 16:10 And it shall come to pass, when you shall show this people all these words and they shall say unto you, Wherefore has the Lord pronounced all this great evil against us? or what is our iniquity? or what is our sin that we have committed against the Lord our God?
JFB: 'house of feasting' as distinguished from mourning feasts. Have no more to do with this people whether in mourning or joyous feasts)people of low consciousness never see any wrong they may be causing as they often make inappropriate.remarks or act in a hurtful manner:.Proverbs 4:19.

People of this ordinary consciousness just can't seem to be circumspect regarding their lives. They often give up on God and do their own thing (Jeremiah 18:10-12), failing to see any wrong that they may cause in their or in another's life.

Jeremiah 16:11 Then shall you say unto them, Because your fathers have forsaken me, says the Lord and have walked after other Gods.(of which they adopted many).and have served them and have worshipped them and have forsaken me and have not kept my law;
We forsake God by not listening and not hearkening to what He laid down that would do us good.
Jeremiah 16:12 And you have done worse than your fathers, for behold, you walk every one after the imagination of his evil heart, that they may not hearken unto me.
One cannot live on both sides of the fence at the same time. Whatever side one is on, precludes the other.

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

Living with evil in one's heart.(Proverbs 30:8).and doing that evil as the ancients.(Jeremiah 44:16,17) and those today, causes a person to not hear guidance from God, even going nuts as this judge did and as this ancient king did.

The way out is not to bring forth the evil inside you:.Matthew 5:13; Luke 14:34; Isaiah 29:20. You always have two choices. Christ came to extract us from the prison of our egos, wherein is the path to all hurtfulness:.Matthew 18:11; Luke 19:10; John 18:9.

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

Jeremiah 16:19 O God, my strength and my fortress and my refuge in the day of affliction, the Gentiles shall come unto you from the ends of the Earth and shall say, Surely our fathers have inherited lies, vanity.and things wherein there is no profit.
Original."Surely our fathers have inherited lies, vanity and unprofitable practices."
Jeremiah 16:21 Therefore, behold, I will this once cause them to know, I will cause them to know mine hand and my might and they shall know that my name is God.

Jeremiah 17:1,2 The sin of Judah is written with a pen of iron and with the point of a diamond. It is engraven upon the table of their heart and upon the horns of your altars. While their children remember their altars and their groves.(original is 'asherahs').by the green trees upon the high hills.
The people in Judah were doing bad at this time, they even left their children alone amongst the places of idolatry, meaning they probably taught them about the pagan practices there. No wonder Judah had captivities.
Jeremiah 17:5 This says God, Cursed be the man that trusts in man and makes flesh his arm, whose heart has turned aside from the true God.
An alternate rendering:.'It just won't work out happily for those whose strength in life is based on his or her mental or physical properties'.

Jeremiah 17:5 This says God, Cursed be the man.(evils increasing).that trusts in man and makes flesh his arm.(he thinks his strength lies in the capabilities of self and friends, in what he regards as his strength, such as money, as well as society's organizatons:.Isaiah 33:1; man trusts in so many wrong things of the physical world {which is how the ego works, trusting only in what it sees, forgetting the spirit inside we all have:.1Corinthians 2:11} instead of trusting in that spiritual and invisible world of the Creator; as long as we don't trust in the Creator, He won't be powerful on our behalf {Matthew 13:58} and will keep hiding from us, for who would want to be around a people as most of us have been throughout history).and whose heart has turned aside.(Jeremiah 8:8,10).from the true God.

So, God decided to hide from them.

Jeremiah 17:6 Destitute in the desert is he, not seeing when good comes, but dwells in the parched places in the wilderness, in a salt land not inhabited.
Jeremiah 17:6 Destitute in the desert is he, not seeing when good comes.(can't seem to find the way for his life to go better; always on the paths that lead to dead ends; just misses opportunites for good), but dwells in the parched places in the wilderness, in a salt land not inhabited.
Jeremiah 17:7.8 Blessed is the man that trusts in the Lord and whose hope the Lord is. For he is as a tree planted by the waters and that spreads out her roots by the river and shall not see when heat comes, but her leaf shall be green and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit.
Jeremiah 17:7.8 Blessed is the man that trusts in the Lord and whose hope the Lord is. For he is as a tree planted by the waters and that spreads out her roots by the river and shall not see when heat comes.(protection), but her leaf shall be green and shall not be careful in the year of drought.(doesn't have to be worried), neither shall cease from yielding fruit.
Jeremiah 17:9 The heart is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked, who can know it?
Jeremiah 17:9 The heart is deceitful.(original 'circumvent', 'crooked', 'devious', 'supplant', 'sly', 'cunnng'; everything it thinks is for selfish advantage, for such is the low consciousness of humanity {*}, where his purpose is to move from that).above all things and desperately.(original is 'incapable of being altered'; we are the way we are and stay the way we are, unless the Creator works out the good in us; man, on his own, is just too weak spiritually to engage himself toward improvement).wicked.(original is 'weak', that is, being weak spiritually, he lives a life bouncing about in the world due to the vicissitudes of his own nature and the mass mind), who can know it?

Original for 'who can know it' is 'comprehend', but really meaning to overstand and, 'know this'. How can one know, that is, comprehend it in a way that benefit can be gained, in order to not be like this, that is, with the heart toward things that gets us in trouble in life? Intuition is one way..(?)

Jeremiah 17:10 I God search.(Romans 8:27).the heart, I try the reins.(Psalms 7:9), even to give every man according to his ways and according to the fruit of his doings
Isaiah 3:10:11. Humanity reaps what is sown.
Jeremiah 17:11 As the partridge sits on eggs and hatches them not, so he that gets riches and not by right, shall leave them in the midst of his days and at his end shall be a fool.

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

Jeremiah 17:15 Behold, they say unto me, Where is the word of God? Let it come now.
2Peter 3:4.
Jeremiah 17:18 Let them be confounded that persecute me but let not me be confounded. Let them be dismayed but let not me be dismayed. Bring upon them the day of evil and destroy them with double destruction.

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