Jeremiah 49:14-16

14 I have heard a message from the Lord; an envoy was sent to the nations to say, “Assemble yourselves to attack it! Rise up for battle!” 15 “Now I will make you small among the nations, despised by mankind. 16 The terror you inspire and the pride of your heart have deceived you, you who live in the clefts of the rocks, who occupy the heights of the hill. Though you build your nest as high as the eagle’s,…

Jeremiah 48:29-30a

29 “We have heard of Moab’s pride—how great is her arrogance!—of her insolence, her pride, her conceit and the haughtiness of her heart. 30a I know her insolence but it is futile,” declares the Lord. Looking at verse twenty-nine above, we see the insolence, pride, conceit, and haughtiness of the people of Moab originates in their hearts. The Lord is clearly not pleased and destruction is coming. However, again like a loving parent He is not pleased with what has…

Jeremiah 31:31-34

31 “The days are coming,” declares the Lord, “when I will make a new covenant with the people of Israel and with the people of Judah. 32 It will not be like the covenant I made with their ancestors when I took them by the hand to lead them out of Egypt, because they broke My covenant, though I was a husband to them,” declares the Lord. 33 “This is the covenant I will make with the people of Israel…

20 Is not Ephraim My dear son, the child in whom I delight? Though I often speak against him, I still remember him. Therefore My heart yearns for him; I have great compassion for him,” declares the Lord. The above verse is the conclusion to the four preceding verses given below 16 This is what the Lord says: “Restrain your voice from weeping and your eyes from tears, for your work will be rewarded,” declares the Lord. “They will return…

Jeremiah 30:23-24

23 See, the storm of the Lord will burst out in wrath, a driving wind swirling down on the heads of the wicked. 24 The fierce anger of the Lord will not turn back until He fully accomplishes the purposes of His heart. In days to come you will understand this. The last two verses of this chapter are found above with the last one speaking of God’s heart, the purposes of His heart. Looking at all the versions of…

4 Then the word of the Lord came to me: 5 “This is what the Lord, the God of Israel, says: ‘Like these good figs, I regard as good the exiles from Judah, whom I sent away from this place to the land of the Babylonians. 6 My eyes will watch over them for their good, and I will bring them back to this land. I will build them up and not tear them down; I will plant them and…

Jeremiah 23:9

9 Concerning the prophets: My heart is broken within me; all my bones tremble. I am like a drunken man, like a strong man overcome by wine, because of the Lord and His holy words. This section of the chapter (v9-32) is titled Lying Prophets and Jeremiah describes his terror and distress due to the horrifying sin of those who pretended to be God’s prophets and were not. In fact the prophecies they offered were of their own making and…

Jeremiah 22:15-17

15 “Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar? Did not your father have food and drink? He did what was right and just, so all went well with him. 16 He defended the cause of the poor and needy, and so all went well. Is that not what it means to know Me?” declares the Lord. 17 “But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain, on shedding innocent blood and on…

Jeremiah 20:9

9 But if I say, “I will not mention His word or speak anymore in His name,” His word is in my heart like a fire, a fire shut up in my bones. I am weary of holding it in; indeed, I cannot. Jeremiah seems to wish he could avoid speaking God’s word because of what it brings upon him. However, he cannot hold it in as His word is in my heart like a fire, a fire shut up…

Jeremiah 18:11-12

11 “Now therefore say to the people of Judah and those living in Jerusalem, ‘This is what the Lord says: Look! I am preparing a disaster for you and devising a plan against you.

We will continue with our own plans; we will all follow the stubbornness of our evil hearts.’” If you have ever…
