Jeremiah Chapter 3

Jeremiah 3:6

jer 3:6

The Lord said

The general character of the second message to Judah is:

(1) of reproach that the example of Jehovah's chastening of the northern kingdom (Kg2 17:1-18) had produced no effect upon Judah, for example (Jer 3:6-10).

(2) of warning of a like chastisement impending over Judah, for example (Jer 3:15-17).

(3) of touching appeals to return to Jehovah, for example (Jer 3:12-14).

(4) of promises of final national restoration and blessing, for example (Jer 3:16-18).


"Israel" and "Ephraim": names by which the northern kingdom (the ten tribes) is usually called in the prophets. When by "Israel" the whole nation is meant, it will appear from the context.
