Day 237

Jeremiah 46-48

jeremiah 47Chapter 46

Jeremiah warns the Egyptians that Babylon will invade and destroy them – but spare the Jews who are exiled there. Jeremiah drags his warning out over 28 verses but that’s the gist of it. Verse 10 (KJV) contains the phrase ‘Drunk With Blood’ again. We encountered this phrase previously in Deuteronomy 32:42 when god said he would make his arrows drunk with blood. Seems he hasn’t gotten any gentler or more merciful since then.

Chapter 47

Same warning, only it’s directed to the Philistines this time. But get a load of v 6 “Now, O sword of the Lord, when will you be at rest again?” Haha, good question – maybe someone should stop all these killings!

Chapter 48

Lather, rinse, and repeat – now the warning is directed at Moab. Interesting note here in the SAB – originally the Moabites (Deuteronomy 2:9) and the Ammonites (Deut 2:19) were exempt from god’s wrath because they were the descendants of Lot’s drunken, incestuous affair with his daughters (see Genesis 19:30-38). I guess that goodwill has run out. (In fact, it ran out in Judges 3). Anyway, Yahweh’s wrath is turned to Moab now. He doesn’t appreciate people who try to succeed on their own skill and wealth (v 7). The rest of the chapter just describes in graphic and gory detail exactly what god will do. No need for me to elaborate.
