Note that unfortunately Jeremiah is not arranged chronologically which can make it difficult for the reader to discern when Jeremiah is actually prophesying.

Below is a list of the last five kings with the respective chapters during which Jeremiah ministered these are approximations. Henrietta Mears : Jeremiah was assured that Jehovah ordained him to this work before his birth Jeremiah God tells us in Eph that we were created unto good works before God even laid the foundation of the world. God has a plan for each one of our lives Jer What the Bible is All about. We do not want to read this as though it is something remote from us. If you are inclined to say only, "Oh, it's such a pity what's going to happen to Israel," remember that this is your story, too.

This is the way God works. He deals with Israel this way because this is the way he deals with everybody. There is a scriptural principle reflected here which all too often we forget. Paul said very plainly in Galatians 6, "Be not deceived [i. Just because judgment does not fall immediately upon people, they think they have gotten by. But Paul says, "Don't fool yourself; God is not cheated. Whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption [i.

Now, that is inevitable. God does not cancel that out by the forgiveness of sin. That is part of what we call the natural consequences of evil, the temporal judgment of God. And it is never canceled out, any more than the rest of what Paul says is canceled out: "but he who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life" Gal b -- life everlasting -- now -- not just in heaven some day but now. The joy and glory of life will come to us if we walk in the Spirit, and that is inevitable. But so is the judgment for our sin. This means, of course, that ultimately a recompense comes to us in life now for the evil in which we have indulged our flesh--whether it is blatant, open, sensual evil, or whether it is inward--spiritual pride, bitterness, and all the other sins of the spirit.

It makes no difference. Evil brings its own results. As someone has well said, "You can pull out the nail driven into the wall, but you can't pull out the nail hole. The Secret of Strength. Rosscup - Calvin is always worth reading, and one will find much insight at times on verses as well as the character of Jeremiah. The sheer length will keep many away, and several other works get to the point more directly. Commentaries for Biblical Expositors. Adam Clarke has many excellent comments but unfortunately occasionally misinterprets prophetic passages as illustrated below. Clarke was an Arminian , e.

He was influential in the development of the doctrine of entire sanctification. Although Clarke affirmed the authority and sufficiency of Scripture, thus holding to a belief of " plenary dynamic inspiration " idea of every thought inspired , he fell short of a belief in the " plenary verbal inspiration " every single word inspired Bibliotheca Sacra: Volume , p , In summary, Adam Clarke can be a useful commentary but in view of some of his beliefs you are advised to " Be a Berean " when utilizing his material, lest you become confused by his comments on prophetic passages.

C H Spurgeon writes that "If you have a copy of Adam Clarke, and exercise discretion in reading it, you will derive immense advantage from it, for frequently by a sort of side light he brings out the meaning of the text in an astonishingly novel manner. I do not wonder that Adam Clarke still stands, notwithstanding his peculiarities, a prince among commentators.

As an aside considerable discretion is advised in consulting older commentaries Calvin, Gill, Henry, etc on Jeremiah and other prophetic books of the OT because they all tend to see the church in OT passages where the literal interpretation leaves no room for such a conclusion. The most conservative, evangelical and millennial resources on this page are Ray Stedman, David Guzik, Thomas Constable , most of the resources listed under " Miscellaneous " unless there is a disclaimer or caveat and the NET Bible notes on each verse.

Below is an example to illustrate how Clarke at times misinterprets in my opinion as a Literalist prophetic passages Jeremiah "in His days In context referring to Messiah at the time of the Millennium Judah shall be saved and Israel will dwell securely. The real Jew is not one who has his circumcision in the flesh, but in the spirit. Ro See notes Ro ; The real Israel are true believers in Christ Jesus; and the genuine Jerusalem is the Church of the first-born.

Clarke incorrectly equates " the real Israel " with all believers, Jew and Gentile, but that is not what the text says see also discussion of NT phrase Israel of God. Jeremiah makes no mention of the church in this text and in fact Paul makes it clear that it was a mystery hidden in the OT but revealed to him in the NT - see Eph note , Eph note The literal interpretation , which makes the most sense, is that Jerusalem is the literal city not a symbolic representation of " the church " - nothing in the text or context supports this interpretation!

Zechariah refers to "one-third" that Jehovah brings through the fire which equates with "all Israel" who will be saved as explained by Paul. Adam Clarke's interpretation blurs the distinction between Israel and the church. Both are conservative and generally literal in interpretation.

Comment : Be aware that while devotionally Henry's writings are excellent, his comments on prophetic passages are occasionally non-literal with a tendency to "replace" passages directly addressed to Israel as if they were originally written to the NT Church. Though the afflictions of the church may last long, they shall not last always. Salvation belongs to the Lord, and shall be wrought for His church. No where in the Bible is Jacob stated to be a synonym of the " church. Jn , cp 1Jn , 27 where " anointing " refers to the Holy Spirit Who now indwells all believers.

God chooses unlikely instruments to do His work. He chose the sensitive, shrinking Jeremiah for what seemed a hopeless mission, with the words: ''Say not, I am a child: for on whatsoever errand I shall send thee thou shalt go, and whatsoever I shall command thee thou shalt speak. Be not afraid.

I am with thee to deliver thee'' Jer , RV. And Jeremiah proved worthy of the trust. Though his heart was wrung with the severe denunciations he had to give, and with the stubborn rejection of them by his people, though he often poured out his complaints to God, and even went so far as to say that he would not speak any more in His Name, yet we never once find him turning back from the path of duty.

Jeremiah prophesied for eighteen years during the reign of Josiah, then during the reigns of the [last] four kings of Judah till after the capture of Jerusalem and the end of the kingdom. He was thus about a hundred years later than the prophet Isaiah. His home was in the village of Anathoth, a few miles north of Jerusalem, and he was by birth a priest.

In any case, the discovery had as marked an effect upon the ministry of the young prophet as upon the conduct of the young king. Jeremiah, no doubt, strengthened Josiah's hands in his work of reform and against forming an alliance with Egypt. Though Jeremiah had many enemies, God gave him some true friends, from Josiah the king down to Ebed-melech the Ethiopian who rescued him from the dungeon [Jer ]. So incensed were the priests and the people, that they took him, saying: ''Thou shalt surely die. The battle of Megiddo, between Judah and Pharaoh Necho, where the good king Josiah was slain, and was deeply mourned by his people, Jeremiah writing a lament concerning him.

Enduring Word Bible Commentary Jeremiah Chapter 1

The battle of Carchemish, near the same spot, four years later, in the reign of Johoiakim, who had become the vassel of Egypt. In this battle, the Egyptians were wholly defeated by the Babylonian forces under Nebuchadnezzar, and it was followed by the first deportation of Jews to Babylon. The third great event was the capture of Jerusalem by Nebuchadnezzar, the destruction of the city and the Temple, and the exile of the greater part of the remainder of the people to Babylon.

In such troublous times as these, Jeremiah lived. The life of the nation from the time of Manasseh, the grandfather of Josiah, was corrupt in the extreme. The reforms of Josiah seemed only to touch it on the surface, and temporarily; after his death the nation sank back into the worst forms of idolatry and into every kind of iniquity.

Commentary on Jeremiah 32:1-3a, 6-15

Jeremiah's mission was to endeavour to turn his people back to their God. During the reign of Josiah, he began to prophesy the dreadful calamity threatening from the North, unless they would repent. Judah's salvation was still possible, but each year her guilt became heavier and her doom more certain. The Lord raised up Nebuchadnezzar to execute His judgment upon Judah.

He gave him universal dominion, and even called him ''My servant''. It was because God revealed this to Jeremiah, that we find him advocating submission to Nebuchadnezzar, and it was for this that his people accused him of treachery. After the destruction of Jerusalem, Jeremiah was given his choice whether he would go to Babylon or remain with the remnant that were left in the land. He chose the latter.

Days of darkness followed. Jeremiah exhorted his people to obey the voice of the Lord and remain in the land, and not to flee to Egypt. But they refused to obey, and they carried Jeremiah with them into Egypt, where, tradition says, he was stoned to death. When Johanan and the chief of the captains refused to obey the voice of the Lord by Jeremiah, and persisted in going down into Egypt with all the remnant of Judah-- men, women, and children, including the King's daughters-- they came and dwelt in Tahpanhes. At the commandment of the Lord, Jeremiah took great stones and hid them under the large platform, or pavement of brickwork, at the entry of Pharaoh's house in Tahpanhes, and prophesied that over these stones Nebuchadnezzar should one day set his throne and spread his royal pavilion.

Flinders Petrie has discovered ''the palace of the Jew's daughter'' at Tahpanhes. Tahpanhes seems to have been an old fort on the Syrian frontier, guarding the road to Egypt, and evidently a constant refuge for the Jews. In front of the fort is a large platform or pavement of brickwork, suitable for outdoor business, such as loading goods, pitching tents, etc.

In season and out of season, for a long lifetime, he laid seige to the hearts of his hearers. The cure of all your famines, he cried, and all your plagues and all your defeats and all your captivities-- the cause and the cure of them all is in your own heart: in the heart of each inhabitant of Jerusalem and each captive in Babylon.

Alexander White] ''His ministry was one of admonition and antagonism. Against the whole land, against the kings of Judah, against the princes, against the priests, against the prophets was he to stand.

  5. Jeremiah a, Commentary by Frank M. Yamada - Working Preacher - Preaching This Week (RCL).

He was to gird up his loins and arise, and speak all that God commanded him. He was to be the solitary fortress, the column of iron, the wall of brass, fearless, undismayed in any presence; the one grand, immoveable figure who pursued the apostatising people and rulers, delivering his message in the Temple court or the royal chamber or the street, whether they would hear or whether they would forbear. In consequence he was the prophet of unwelcome truths, hated of all, but feared as well by all.

It was a mission requiring courage, faith, strength, will; a mission no weakling could fill, no coward would undertake. Jeremiah is one of the very great men of the world. He prophesied the seventy years' servitude of the Jews to Babylon, urging them to settle down to the life of that city and to seek its peace.

He prophesied as certainly the restoration of his people and the unalterable love of God to them. At the very time of the siege of Jerusalem, and from his prison cell, Jeremiah, at the bidding of the Lord, purchased a field from his cousin Hanameel as a proof that Israel should be restored to their land. Those who deny the miracle of prophetic prediction, for the same reason, deny that these chapters were written by Jeremiah.

They suppose them to have been written by a follower of the prophet, accustomed to use similar phraseology, and that he wrote them not long before the fall of Babylon. Against this theory we have the following facts Even those, who deny that Jeremiah was the author, admit that the style of those two chapters presents all the characteristics of the special style of the prophet.

Those two chapters in particular are more carefully authenticated as being by Jeremiah than any other portions of the book: Chapter 50 beginning with the words, ''The word that the Lord spake against Babylon by Jeremiah the prophet,'' and chapter 51 closing with, ''Thus far are the words of Jeremiah. To place the prophecy at the time when Babylon was about to be taken by Cyrus does not do away with the miracle of prediction, for many of the details of the prophecy were not fulfilled [until] more than five centuries later. At the time of the conquest This sentence is a figure of grammar, of frequent occurrence in both Old and New Testaments, as scholars have pointed out over and over again.

The figure is this: That a negative followed, generally though not always, by a adversative particle generally the conjunction ''but'' is frequently not a negative at all, but a form of comparison. For instance,. In all these places, the negative is not a literal negative at all, but is a strong and striking form of the comparative. In this form, or figure, the negative does not exclude the thing denied, but only implies the prior claim of the thing set in opposition to it Rev.

However, Israel's condition illustrates the need of all peoples for the salvation provided in the Gospel of Christ. The texts in brackets are suggested as possibilities for developing each theme.

The Book of Jeremiah throws much light on the subject of inspiration. It is a helpful study to take one's Bible, and beginning with the first verse, to mark all the expressions which assert or imply that God spake by Jeremiah, such as, ''Thus saith the Lord,'' ''The Lord said unto me,'' ''The word of the Lord came,'' etc. Such expressions occur sometimes a dozen times in one chapter, and in them Jeremiah unhesitatingly claims inspiration. As we read on, a scene rises before us. We see Jeremiah in prison. The rulers have bound him that they may be no longer troubled by the word of the Lord.

God tells him to take a roll [ie. We can picture the prophet in the dimly lighted dungeon, with his faithful friend Baruch at his side, busily writing down the words on the roll as the prophet spoke them. It contains every prophecy which Jeremiah has uttered up to that time. But this is not all. After Baruch had read the roll to the people, he was sent for by the Royal Council and commanded to read it to them.

The great officials of Jerusalem said to Baruch, ''Tell us now, How didst thou write all these words at his mouth? Here another scene rises before us. We are no longer in the dark dungeon, but in the winter palace of Jehoiakim, surrounded by all the magnificent luxury of an Eastern Court. When the monarch had heard three or four leaves of the roll, he had had enough. He asked for the roll, cut it in pieces with a penknife, and cast it into the fire that was upon the hearth.

Jeremiah and Baruch were ordered to be taken, and would, no doubt, have been treated with ferocity, ''but the Lord hid them. The Lord commanded Jeremiah to take another roll, and to write in it ''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. Like Jehoiakim, he may cast his hope of salvation in the fire.

The stern messages Jeremiah had to give were so foreign to his sensitive nature that it could only have been the deep conviction, that they were the words of the Lord, that enabled him to give utterance to them. Like Job, he deplores the day of his birth; he sits alone because of the Lord's hand; he complains that he is in derision daily; the word of the Lord was made a reproach unto him, for His sake he has suffered rebuke; cursed by every one, mocked, defamed, watched by all his familiars for his halting [ie.

As we have already seen, he contemplates speaking no more in the name of the Lord, ''But,'' he says, ''His word was in my heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I was weary with forbearing, and I could not stay [ie. With such a fire burning in his heart, is it any wonder that the Lord's promise was fulfilled, ''Behold, I will make My words in thy mouth fire''? In his prayers to God, Jeremiah reveals the secret workings of his heart. He was emphatically a man of prayer, a man who understood the meaning of communion with his God.

It were Thy concern and ours that Thy Gospel should spread in the world, and the honour of our Lord should be advanced.

Thou hast not surely lost Thy hold of Thine own, or Thy care for Thine own property. Comment : In the context of Book of Jeremiah who is " we " in Jer ? Who is speaking? Is he a Jew or a Gentile? The obvious answer is that the speaker is the Jewish prophet Jeremiah. Maclaren interprets this as directed to "His Church".

We need to remember that the original text has only one valid, literal interpretation cp Interpretation. This does not mean that Biblical texts originally given to Judah or Israel cannot be applied to the NT Church or to NT believers personally, because indeed they can see Application. In summary, I love Maclaren's excellent expositions, but one must be mindful that he does not always interpret the text literally in the Book of Jeremiah. The two sites above list their selection of top 5 commentaries on the book of Jeremiah.

While I do find both of these sites helpful on certain books of the Bible, their recommendations on Jeremiah and most other OT prophetic books like Isaiah and the Minor Prophets clearly seem to manifest a bias against commentaries that interpret the prophetic passages literally, especially those passages having to do with the future of the nation of Israel. It is a well done literalistic commentary notice that it is not even given honorable mention status in either of the above two lists of "best commentaries" which tends to substantiate my suspicion that there is bias against literalistic interpretation.

Although the comments in the following three study Bibles are short, they both reflect a literal interpretation of the text -. The ESV Study Bible is literal in interpretation in many prophetic passages but tends to gravitate toward a more figurative interpretation of other prophetic passages.

The Reformation Study Bible is largely non-literal in interpretation of prophetic passages related to Israel should be used with a healthy Berean-like mindset Acts note. If you are interested in understanding what the plain sense of Jeremiah's message meant in the highly prophetic section Jeremiah "The Book of Consolation" , I have compiled in depth, verse by verse notes on each chapter.

I am a retired medical doctor and do not have a seminary degree and approach the text simply reading it in a normal fashion. In short, I am an avowed "Literalist" so to speak and not a dispensationalist. Below is another resource that is a more complete listing of evangelical commentaries on Jeremiah, but they do not all interpret Jeremiah from a literal perspective so again the wise reader is cautioned to be a Berean!

Excerpt from Couch : Jeremiah 30 may be one of the most important prophecies in our Old Testament. It gives without apology the remarkable premillennial doctrine about the return of the Jews to the land.

What do some of the greatest Bible teachers write about this chapter? Excerpt Review : Derek Kidner. The Message of Jeremiah. This is a broad exposition of the book that is quite refreshing. Kidner displays his usual high standard of readability, conservatism, conciseness, and directness regarding many issues. Yet he is amillennial on the main prophetic section chaps , expecting a spiritual rather than a literal realization. The Man, Jeremiah - Jeremiah is better known than most prophets because of the many biographical sections in the book.

We have greater insight into his personality, his struggles and his commitment to the Lord who called him than in any other OT prophet. Jeremiah was born in the village of Anathoth north of Jerusalem and was the son of Hilkiah who was a priest. This priestly family was probably descended from Abiathar whom Solomon banished to Anathoth because he supported Adonijah 1 Kings Jeremiah was apparently young when he was called Jer His ministry spanned forty years from the thirteenth year of Josiah to some time after the destruction of Jerusalem in BC2.

In spite of the fact that his early prophecies proved true, he was still treated roughly when he tried to turn the minds of the officials, priests and people to the Lord and to get them to submit to inevitable adversity under Nebuchadnezzar. The Call Theme in Jeremiah - When God calls Jeremiah to the prophetic ministry, he tells him there will be six negative and two positive components in his message: to tear down, destroy, pluck up, and root out and to build and to plant Jer These phrases are reiterated in full or in part several times in the book. At least four of the words appear in Jer ; ,9; ; ; Between one and three occur in Jer ; ,5; ; ; ; Below are Heater's 3 charts depicting the structure of the respective chapters:.

It is the distant future that Jeremiah had in mind. The phrase I will restore the fortunes lit "turn the turnings" or "reverse the fortunes" appears often in these chapters. Restore them to the land I gave to their ancestors looks to a time beyond the future return from the exile. The exiles, when they returned, retook only a small portion of the ancestral lands. Thus the restoration God promised here looks beyond this event. Rosscup - A master at surveys does it again here for pastors, Sunday School teachers and lay persons needing a concise sketch.

He has a clear outline, charts that put some material into helpful perspective as oracles vs. Morgan on the "Restoration of Israel, Jer ". Remember that Morgan wrote this in , long before Israel was reborn as a nation in May, ! As an aside, Morgan could hardly be labeled a " Dispensationalist. This is repeatedly promised in Jeremiah and secured by the most solemn asseverations which can be used, but it is minutely described in this and the following chapter. The reason of their restoration is disclosed , Jer , viz. The extent of the regathering is foretold, Jer ; from every quarter of the earth both the house of Israel and the house of Judah will be brought back again.

With deep penitence and supplications for their sins will they come, the Lord Himself leading them, Jer Scarcely anything can exceed the pathos, the exquisite tenderness with which the penitents and their Redeemer talk together, as it is foretold in Jer Of course this is true of all genuine repentance, but it will most emphatically be true in restored Israel , Zech A New Covenant is made with them in the day they return to God, Jer That we may be assured that the covenant was not fulfilled at the return from the Babylonian exile, it is quoted once and again in the New Testament and distinctly applied to the Jews of the future, Ro , 27;Heb ; , The Chaldeans were laying siege to the city; and that they would capture it the prophet very well knew.

Abraham bought a field for his dead; Jeremiah bought one for a nation yet unborn. Sample Excerpt - David Baron said, ''You need not speculate upon Israel's history; it is written in a book. Peruse these chapters again, noting that Jehovah said '' I will '' at least 33 times in these three chapters. God is determined to reshape the ''clay'' and mold another vessel that will be pleasing to Himself. He is the One of whom the prophet spoke as follows: "Their Redeemer is strong, the Lord of hosts is His name; He shall thoroughly plead their cause, that He may give rest to the land, and disquiet the inhabitants of Babylon.

Alexander Whyte - Jeremiah was far and away the most spiritually-minded of all the prophets Jeremiah was, of all the prophets of the Old Testament, the supreme prophet of God to the human heart. In season and out of season, for a long lifetime, he laid siege to the hearts of his hearers. The cure of all your famines, he cried, and all your plagues and all your defeats and all your captivities—the cause and the cure of them all is in your own heart: in the heart of each inhabitant of Jerusalem and each captive in Babylon.

Rosscup - A concise but carefully-researched conservative work that very often provides good help in explaining verses to preachers, students and lay people. Dyer gets to the flow of the message in Jeremiah, mingles summaries and sections on detail in a good balance, and usually has something worthwhile on key verses or problem passages. Comment : Be very wary using this resource for it is not always conservative or literal in interpretation.

There is some reasonably good material but great discernment is required when sifting "the wheat from the chaff!

Recommended Resource - Dr. He holds at M. Lundbom also deals with the theology of Jeremiah in this introductory section. The bulk of the three volumes is devoted to commentary on the text. While the NIVAC is an uneven series, the volume covering Jeremiah and Lamentations is regarded as a sound choice for any reader, but especially the more general reader.

In keeping with the series, Dearman does not deal with technical issues. John L. Mackay — Jeremiah , Jeremiah Mentor Commentary. The Mentor series regularly receives accolades from conservative and Reformed commentators on the commentaries, but seems to be overlooked entirely by others. Still, Mackay is regarded as an excellent expositor and his two-volume treatment of Jeremiah will prove helpful to anyone who plans to preach through the book. It will be more detailed than some general readers will want, but still not too dense.
