Jeremiah Chapter 25

Jeremiah 25:11

jer 25:11

seventy years

Compare (Lev 26:33-35); (Ch2 36:21); (Dan 9:2)

The 70 years may be reckoned to begin with the first deportation of Judah to Babylon. (Kg2 24:10-15). B.C. 604 according to the Assyrian Eponym Canon, or B.C. 606 according to Ussher; or from the final deportation; (Kg2 25:1-30); (Ch2 36:17-20); (Jer 39:8-10). B.C. 586 (Assyr. Ep. Canon), or B.C. 588 (Ussher). In the first case the 70 years extend to the decree of Cyrus for the return (Ezr 1:1-3) B.C. (Assyr. Ep. Canon), or B.C. 536 (Ussher). In the second case the 70 years terminate B.C. 516 (Assyr. Ep. Canon) with the completion of the temple. The latter is more probable reckoning in the light of (Dan 9:25).

all the inhabitants

The scope of this great prophecy cannot be limited to the invasion of Nebuchadnezzar. If Jehovah does not spare His own city, should the Gentile nations imagine that there is no judgment for them? The prophecy leaps to the very end of this age.

"Armageddon,"; (Rev 16:14); (Rev 19:11-21).
