Jeremiah 18-22

  • 18:18 – Like God told Jeremiah, he started facing persecution from his own people.
  • 18:19-23 – Jeremiah hopes for the destruction of his enemies. Unlike Jesus who wanted God to forgive his enemies, Jeremiah wants them to be punished for what they’ve done.
  • 19:1-13 – Jeremiah proclaims the coming destruction of Judah because they have worshipped false gods.
  • 20:1-6 – God told Jeremiah he would be persecuted but that God would ultimately protect him and destroy his enemies. Passhur the priest is the first example of this.
  • 20:7-18 – Jeremiah is confident in God’s protection of him, but is still not excited about the suffering he will endure.
  • 21:2-14 – Jeremiah does not have good news for King Zedekiah and his crew.
  • 22:1-10 – God, once again, gives the house of David (the king of Judah) the opportunity to repent.
  • 22:30 – This verse is problematic because it seems to have God break his promise that the line of David would always be in power. But wait…
