Jeremiah 2

Scofield's Reference NotesScofield's Notes

Verse 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, e.g. Jeremiah 2:1-7.

(2) He reproaches them with forsaking Him, e.g. Jeremiah 2:13.

(3) He accuses them of choosing other, and impotent, gods, e.g. Jeremiah 2:10-12; Jeremiah 2:26-28.

All these messages are to be thought of as inspired sermons, spoken to the people and subsequently written. Cf. Jeremiah 36:1-32.
