Jeremiah 9

Verses 1-26

Jeremiah 9:23-24 Comments Do Not Glory in Man’s Abilities, But in God’s Lovingkindness - A wise man who glories in his wisdom refers to the strength of a man’s mind. The mighty man who glories in his might refers to the strength of a man’s body. The rich man who glories in his riches refers to the strength of a man’s finances. However, the most important aspect of the person is his heart, by which a man walks in love and righteousness. Thus, Jeremiah 9:23-24 refers to the three-fold aspect of man: spirit, soul and body, plus finances.
