Jeremiah Chapter 2

Jeremiah 2:1

jer 2:1

word of the Lord

The general character of the first message from Jehovah to Judah by Jeremiah is threefold:

(1) He reminds Israel of the days of blessing and deliverance, for example (Jer 2:1-7).

(2) He reproaches them with forsaking Him, for example (Jer 2:13).

(3) He accuses them of choosing other, and impotent, gods, for example (Jer 2:10-12); (Jer 2:26-28).

All these messages are to be thought of as inspired sermons, spoken to the people and subsequently written.

Compare (Jer 36:1-32).
