Scofield's Reference Notes

Jeremiah 7

Verse 1

The word that came

The general character of the message in the temple gate is, like the first and second messages, one of rebuke, warning, and exhortation, but this message is addressed more to such in Judah as still maintaining outwardly the worship of Jehovah; it is a message to religious Judah, e.g. Jeremiah 7:2; Jeremiah 7:9; Jeremiah 7:10; Jeremiah 9:10; Jeremiah 9:11.

Verse 8


(See Scofield " :-") .

Verse 22

nor commanded

Cf. (See Scofield " :-") , note 2, the threefold giving of the law. The command concerning burnt-offerings and sacrifices was not given to the people till they had broken the decalogue, the law of obedience.

Verse 33


carcases See Jeremiah 19:11; 2 Kings 23:10; Ezekiel 6:5. Fulfilled in part in all the destructions of Jerusalem, but with a final look toward Revelation 19:17-21.
