Key words (NAS95): There are many key words but just reading through these key words give you some major "clues" as to the message and theme of the Book of Jeremiah. The following key words/phrases are somewhat grouped together. Do these groups give you at least a general sense of Jeremiah's message?

Word of the LORD (52x/51v - 20% of all uses of this phrase in Scripture are by Jeremiah!),

Heart/hearts (55x/48v), Faithless, faithlessness (8x/7v), Forsake (20x/18v), Forget (3x), Adultery, adulteries, adulterer (9x), Rebel, rebellious, rebellion (6x) Wicked, Wickedness (34x/30v), Evil/evils (53x/47v), Sin, sins, sinned (26x/25v), Iniquity, iniquities (24x/23v), Idol, images, gods, Baal (64x/56v)

Backslide (Only once in NAS95; 13x/12 in KJV - used only 4 other times in KJV in entire OT!),

Woe (13x), Wrath (19x/18v), Famine (33x/30v), Calamity (27x), Destroy (56x/52v), Pluck (4x), Uproot (8x/6v)

Babylon (169x in 149v - more than all other uses in Scripture combined!), Nations (Gentiles) (60x/55v)

Covenant (24x/21v), Everlasting (10x/9v), Love (14x/13v), Hope (6x); Compassion (7x/6v), Lovingkindness (5x)

Faithful/faithfulness (3x), Trust, trusted, trusting (18x/17v), Listen, hear, heed (96x), Remember (14x/13v), Return (35x/29v), Repent (6x), Turn/Turned Back (20x)

Restore (18x), Heal/healed/healing/health (21x/15v); Plant (17x/15v), Build (12x)

Baxter sums up the book with two phrases (using the KJV) - The first phrase is "I will punish" (Jer 9:25KJV, Jer 11:22KJV, Jer 21:14KJV, Jer 25:12KJV, Jer 29:32KJV, Jer 30:20KJV, Jer 36:31KJV, Jer 44:13KJV, Jer 44:29KJV, Jer 46:25KJV, Jer 50:18KJV, Jer 51:44KJV). The second phrase is "I will restore." (Jer 30:17) Jer 26:12, 13 sums up God's clear and gracious "eleventh-hour offer" to Judah, an offer which was obviously rejected.

Beloved, we do well to read and study the prophecy of Jeremiah, for in these 52 chapters are timeless principles that will impact every nation and every individual who rejects God's Word and Authority and wantonly pursues wickedness. In short here is what Jeremiah would say...Woe to that nation or that person!


Baxter writes (and I agree) that "The key to the whole book is found in Jeremiah 30, 31, especially in Jer 30:15-18

'Why do you cry out over your injury? Your pain is incurable. Because your iniquity is great and your sins are numerous, I have done these things to you. 16 'Therefore all who devour you will be devoured; and all your adversaries, every one of them, will go into captivity; and those who plunder you will be for plunder, and all who prey upon you I will give for prey. 17 'For (Don't miss this strategically placed term of explanation- Always ask "What is it explaining?") I will restore you to health and I will heal you of your wounds,' declares the LORD, 'Because they have called you an outcast, saying: "It is Zion; no one cares for her."' 18 "Thus says the LORD, 'Behold, I will restore the fortunes of the tents of Jacob and have compassion on his dwelling places; and the city (Jerusalem) will be rebuilt on its ruin, and the palace will stand on its rightful place. (See David Baron's discussion of these crucial passages)

Key Event in Jeremiah: Fall of Jerusalem in Jer 39:1-18. Jeremiah 1:1-38:28 are given to Judah before the fall, but they are not in chronological order. Jeremiah 40-44 address Judah after the fall. Jeremiah 45:1-5 is to Baruch. Jeremiah 46:1-51:64 is to the Gentile nations. Jeremiah 52:1-34 is a historical supplement.

J C Ryle (1880): THE book of the prophet Jeremiah receives from most Christians far less attention than it deserves. It is a noteworthy fact that hardly any portion of Holy Scripture is the subject of so few exhaustive commentaries and expositions.




First message, Jer 2:1-3:5; second message, Jer 3:6-6:30; third message (at Temple gate), Jer 7:1-10:25; fourth message (the broken covenant), Jer 11:1-12:17; fifth message (sign of linen girdle), Jer 13:1-27; sixth message (on the drought), Jer 14:1-15:21; seventh message (sign of the unmarried prophet), Jer 16:1-17:18); eighth message (at city gates), Jer 17:19-27; ninth message (the potter's vessel), Jer 18; tenth message (the earthen vessel), Jer 19:1-15; result, Jer 20:1-18.

Jeremiah 52:1-34: SUPPLEMENT/CONCLUSION - Jerusalem overthrown.

(Adapted from Baxter's Explore the Book)


The book of Jeremiah is unique among the OT prophets, because God reveals the prophet's heart more than with any of the other prophets. "Jeremiah was the prophet of Judah's midnight hour." (Baxter) Jeremiah was the "weeping prophet" (Jer 9:1; 13:17), the "reluctant prophet" (Jer 1:6), “prophet of loneliness” (he was commanded not to marry, Jer 16:2), the persecuted prophet = rejected, ridiculed, beaten, falsely accused -- Jer 11:18-23; Jer 12:6; Jer 15:10; Jer 18:18; Jer 20:1-3 (in stocks); Jer 20:7 (laughingstock) Jer 26:1-24; Jer 37:11-38:28, accused of treachery (Jer 38:4), lowered into a cistern (Jer 38:6); carried, against his will, by his countrymen into Egypt (Jer 43:1–7).

Irving Jensen: NO MORE FITTING INTRODUCTION to the prophecy of Jeremiah could be given in the opening words of the prophecy than by stating where God “found” Jeremiah (among the priests), and what He made of him (a prophet unto the nations). (Everyman’s Bible Commentary)

J Sidlow Baxter: Jeremiah is one of the bravest, tenderest, and most pathetic figures in history; and his book of prophecies is one which everybody should read. Indeed, there is good reason why we should read the prophecies of Jeremiah with much thoughtfulness just now, for there is no little correspondence between the fateful days of this noble prophet and our own. ...I know of no man who reveals a truer heart-likeness to Jesus Himself than does Jeremiah, in his suffering sympathy both with God and men, in his unretaliating forbearance, his yearning concern for his fellows, his guileless motive, his humility, his willingness for self-sacrifice, and his utter faithfulness, even to the point of unsparing severity in denunciation. All disappointed, disappreciated, disregarded, misunderstood, misrepresented, and persecuted Christian workers today, sticking on at their work, but with a leaden weight at the heart and a choke of grief in the throat, should turn aside again and again to commune with the heroic great-heart of these pages. Indeed, we cannot properly study this Book of Jeremiah without studying Jeremiah himself; for the man is as much the book as the prophecies which he uttered.... With an intensity of love and sympathy, he himself lived and felt and suffered in his message. His own heart-strings vibrated to every major and every minor chord. The man and his message were one. (Baxter's Explore the Book)

James Van Dine (see below) - "Jeremiah’s very personal, and painful, participation in the prophetic enterprise sets him apart as the messenger of God who most identified with the sorrow that Yahweh must have felt over the rejection of His chosen people. Hence, unlike the other writing prophets, the message of Jeremiah is significantly bound up with the prophet’s own spiritual and psychological states, induced as they were by the difficulty of his mission and the hostility to its reception. God does not judge without sorrow; his servants cannot but share His own heart for His special people."

G Campbell Morgan's "Living Messages" from Jeremiah (see below): "The permanent values of this book constitute its living message. I utter that in briefest sentences. First, it teaches us that sin is its own destruction. No policy can outmaneuver God. National rebellion is national ruin. Sin carries within itself the force of its own punishment and its own retribution. Secondly, it affirms that the heart of God is wounded by sin. Judgment is His strange act. He weeps over the doom of a city. Finally it declares that the ultimate victory is with God, “He made it again.” The Branch is appointed. The King-Priest has come. We are to learn that God must punish sin, that the most awful fact of sin is that it wounds God; and finally, that if we will but have it so, if we will but turn to Him and listen to His call, He overrules by canceling, and breaking the power of sin, makes again the vessel marred in the hand of the potter." (Living Messages of the Books of the Bible - The Message of Jeremiah)

Archaeological Discoveries - Corroborate historicity of biblical accounts of last years of Judah. (1) The Babylonian Chronicle gives information about the campaigns of the Babylonian armies from 626BC on, including capture of Jerusalem in 597. (2) The Lachish letters describe the situation in Judah just prior to Nebuchadnezzar's final siege of Judah in 586. A seal at Lachish bears the name of Gedaliah (Click discussion). (3) Tablets excavated near the Ishtar Gate of ancient Babylon include the name of "Yaukin [Jehoiachin] king of the land of Yahud [Judah]" as receiving royal bounty (i.e., ration tablets, 2Ki 25:29-30). (From The Ryrie Study Bible)

Jeremiah ministered during the reigns of Judah's last, five kings (Jer 1:1-3). One has but to name these kings - Josiah, Jehoahaz, Jehoiakim, Jehoiachin, Zedekiah - to realize the darkness of those days. Note that unfortunately Jeremiah is not arranged chronologically which can make it difficult for the reader to discern when Jeremiah is actually prophesying. Below is a list of the last five kings with the respective chapters during which Jeremiah ministered (these are approximations).

Henrietta Mears: Jeremiah was assured that Jehovah ordained him to this work before his birth (Jeremiah 1:5). God tells us in Eph 2:10 that we were created unto good works before God even laid the foundation of the world. God has a plan for each one of our lives (Jer 1:1-8). (What the Bible is All about)

Pastor Ray Stedman applies the warning passages of Jeremiah to us today writing:

We do not want to read this as though it is something remote from us. If you are inclined to say only, "Oh, it's such a pity what's going to happen to Israel," remember that this is your story, too. This is the way God works. He deals with Israel this way because this is the way he deals with everybody. There is a scriptural principle reflected here which all too often we forget. Paul said very plainly in Galatians 6, "Be not deceived [i.e., don't kid yourself]; God is not cheated," (Gal 6:7a). Just because judgment does not fall immediately upon people, they think they have gotten by. But Paul says, "Don't fool yourself; God is not cheated. Whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption [i.e., trouble, pain, heartache, trial, distress, and disaster]," (Gal 6:7,8a). Now, that is inevitable. God does not cancel that out by the forgiveness of sin. That is part of what we call the natural consequences of evil, the temporal judgment of God. And it is never canceled out, any more than the rest of what Paul says is canceled out: "but he who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life" (Gal 6:8b) -- life everlasting -- now -- not just in heaven some day but now. The joy and glory of life will come to us if we walk in the Spirit, and that is inevitable. But so is the judgment for our sin. This means, of course, that ultimately a recompense comes to us in life now for the evil in which we have indulged our flesh--whether it is blatant, open, sensual evil, or whether it is inward--spiritual pride, bitterness, and all the other sins of the spirit. It makes no difference. Evil brings its own results. As someone has well said, "You can pull out the nail driven into the wall, but you can't pull out the nail hole. "If you want to study this question further, you can obtain a copy of a message I gave some years ago entitled The Scars of Sin, which touches on this subject. (The Secret of Strength)

John Calvin
Commentary on Jeremiah

Rosscup - Calvin is always worth reading, and one will find much insight at times on verses as well as the character of Jeremiah. The sheer length will keep many away, and several other works get to the point more directly. Calvin is amillennial on passages about Israel’s long-range future, and premillennialists will feel that he does strange things with these. (Commentaries for Biblical Expositors)

Adam Clarke**
Commentary on Jeremiah

**Caveats Regarding Clarke's Commentary on Jeremiah

Adam Clarke has many excellent comments but unfortunately occasionally misinterprets prophetic passages as illustrated below. Clarke was an Arminian, (e.g., he "suggested that although God can know all future events, He chooses not to know some events beforehand" Baker Encyclopedia of the Bible, page 808), did not always interpret Scripture literally and thus not surprisingly was amillennial (did not believe Messiah would reign 1000 years in His earthly Kingdom - he interpreted Revelation as a Historicist) which led him to misinterpret the church as fulfilling many Old Testament promises given to Israel. He was influential in the development of the doctrine of entire sanctification. Although Clarke affirmed the authority and sufficiency of Scripture, thus holding to a belief of "plenary dynamic inspiration" (idea of every thought inspired), he fell short of a belief in the "plenary verbal inspiration" (every single word inspired) (Bibliotheca Sacra: Volume 125, p 163, 1968). In summary, Adam Clarke can be a useful commentary but in view of some of his beliefs you are advised to "Be a Berean" when utilizing his material, lest you become confused by his comments on prophetic passages.

C H Spurgeon writes that "If you have a copy of Adam Clarke, and exercise discretion in reading it, you will derive immense advantage from it, for frequently by a sort of side light he brings out the meaning of the text in an astonishingly novel manner. I do not wonder that Adam Clarke still stands, notwithstanding his peculiarities, a prince among commentators." (in Commenting and Commentaries).

As an aside considerable discretion is advised in consulting older commentaries (Calvin, Gill, Henry, etc) on Jeremiah (and other prophetic books of the OT) because they all tend to see the church in OT passages where the literal interpretation leaves no room for such a conclusion.

The most conservative, evangelical and millennial resources on this page are Ray Stedman, David Guzik, Thomas Constable, most of the resources listed under "Miscellaneous" (unless there is a disclaimer or caveat) and the NET Bible (notes on each verse)

Below is an example to illustrate how Clarke at times misinterprets (in my opinion as a Literalist) prophetic passages...

Jeremiah 23:6 "in His days (In context referring to Messiah at the time of the Millennium) Judah shall be saved and Israel will dwell securely.

Clarke correctly comments on this passage that

The real Jew is not one who has his circumcision in the flesh, but in the spirit. (Ro 2:28-29-See notes Ro 2:28; 2:29)

Clarke who is an amillennialist goes on to state that

The real Israel are true believers in Christ Jesus; and the genuine Jerusalem is the Church of the first-born.

Clarke incorrectly equates "the real Israel" with all believers, Jew and Gentile, but that is not what the text says (see also discussion of NT phrase Israel of God). Jeremiah makes no mention of the church in this text and in fact Paul makes it clear that it was a mystery (hidden in the OT but revealed to him in the NT - see Eph 3:3-4-note, Eph 3:9-note) The literal interpretation, which makes the most sense, is that Jerusalem is the literal city (not a symbolic representation of "the church" - nothing in the text or context supports this interpretation!) and at the return of the Messiah ("the Righteous Branch") to rule and reign, the Jews who are saved by placing their faith in their Messiah - the phrase "shall be saved" parallels several other passages:

[1] Jeremiah 30:7 Alas! for that day is great, There is none like it; and it is the time of Jacob's distress, But he will be saved from it.

"That day" and "the time of Jacob's distress" refers to the time of Jacob's distress or the last 3.5 years of Daniel's Seventieth Week which Jesus designated as the "Great Tribulation" in Matthew 24:21,

[2] Zechariah 13:8, 9 "And it will come about in all the land," Declares the LORD, "That two parts in it will be cut off and perish; But the third will be left in it.9 "And I will bring the third part through the fire, Refine them as silver is refined, And test them as gold is tested. They will call on My name, And I will answer them; I will say, 'They are My people,' And they will say, 'The LORD is my God.'"

Zechariah refers to "one-third" that Jehovah brings through the fire which equates with "all Israel" who will be saved as explained by Paul.

[3] Romans 11:26-27-note and thus all Israel will be saved; just as it is written, "THE DELIVERER WILL COME FROM ZION, HE WILL REMOVE UNGODLINESS FROM JACOB (refers to Israel). AND THIS IS MY COVENANT WITH THEM, WHEN I TAKE AWAY THEIR SINS. (see commentary notes)

These saved Jews ("all Israel") which constitute "the third (that) will be left" (see synonym = remnant) will enter into Messiah's 1000 year earthly kingdom and for the first time in all of world history, Israel will be at peace and will finally dwell securely in her land as Jeremiah had prophesied some 2500 years earlier. Adam Clarke's interpretation blurs the distinction between Israel and the church.

Matthew Henry
Commentary on Jeremiah

Comment: Be aware that while devotionally Henry's writings are excellent, his comments on prophetic passages are occasionally non-literal with a tendency to "replace" passages directly addressed to Israel as if they were originally written to the NT Church. E.g., here is a portion of his comment on Jer 30:7 - "Jacob’s troubles shall cease: He shall be saved out of them. Though the afflictions of the church may last long, they shall not last always. Salvation belongs to the Lord, and shall be wrought for His church." There is nothing in the context that prohibits one from interpreting Jer 30:7 as referring to a literal Jacob. No where in the Bible is Jacob stated to be a synonym of the "church." Let me suggest before you read Matthew Henry's comments, you take time to read the text for yourself, literally and in context (unbiased and without the "grid" of any particular system of theology, whether it be dispensational, reformed, covenant, etc), asking your Teacher the Spirit to guide you into all truth and He will! (Jn 16:13, cp 1Jn 2:20, 27 where "anointing" refers to the Holy Spirit Who now indwells all believers). Contrast Henry's comment with the following interpretation from another "older" commentary source, Jamieson, et al (below), who states the following regarding Jer 30:7 "The partial deliverance at Babylon’s downfall prefigures the final, complete deliverance of Israel, literal and spiritual, at the downfall of the mystical Babylon." (Rev 18:1–19:21)." (Bolding mine)

Sermon Excerpt (Maclaren's comment on Jer 14:9): And the final plea is the appeal to the perennial and essential relationship of God to His Church. ‘We are called by Thy name’ (Jer 14:9)—‘we belong to Thee. It were Thy concern and ours that Thy Gospel should spread in the world, and the honour of our Lord should be advanced. Thou hast not surely lost Thy hold of Thine own, or Thy care for Thine own property.’

Comment: In the context of Book of Jeremiah who is "we" in Jer 14:9? Who is speaking? Is he a Jew or a Gentile? The obvious answer is that the speaker is the Jewish prophet Jeremiah. Maclaren interprets this as directed to "His Church". We need to remember that the original text has only one valid, literal interpretation (cp Interpretation). This does not mean that Biblical texts originally given to Judah or Israel cannot be applied to the NT Church or to NT believers personally, because indeed they can (see Application). In summary, I love Maclaren's excellent expositions, but one must be mindful that he does not always interpret the text literally in the Book of Jeremiah.

Top 5 Commentaries on the Book of Jeremiah by Keith Mathison - Ligonier Ministries

Best Commentaries on Jeremiah - Tim Challies

The two sites above list their selection of top 5 commentaries on the book of Jeremiah. While I do find both of these sites helpful on certain books of the Bible, their recommendations on Jeremiah (and most other OT prophetic books like Isaiah and Minor Prophets) clearly seem to manifest a bias against commentaries that interpret literally the prophetic passages having to do with the future of the nation of Israel. In fact none of the "top 5" (and even the alternates on Ligonier's site) are very helpful on the prophetic passages in the "Book of Consolation" (Jeremiah 30-33) (with the exception of an occasional sentence that seems to interpret the text literally in Lundborn). And while Ryken is very readable and has many excellent points of application, he assiduously avoids literal interpretation in the prophetic passages.

That said, if you are interested in resources that read and interpret the text literally (as written by a literal Jewish man to a literal Jewish Israel) then check out Jeremiah, Lamentations- An Exegetical and Theological Exposition of Holy Scripture -The New American Commentary by Huey. It is a well done literalistic commentary (and notably is not even given honorable mention status in either of the above sites which tends to substantiate my suspicion that there is bias against literalistic interpretation.

Although the comments in the following two study Bibles are short, they both reflect a literal interpretation of the text - MacArthur Study Bible and the free Holman Christian Standard Bible Study Bible. The ESV Study Bible is literal in interpretation of some passages and more figurative in interpretation of other prophetic passages. The Reformation Study Bible is largely non-literal in interpretation of prophetic passages related to Israel should be used with a healthy Berean-like mindset (Acts 17:11).

If you are interested in understanding what the plain sense of Jeremiah's message meant in the highly prophetic section Jeremiah 30-33 ("The Book of Consolation"), I have compiled in depth verse by verse notes on each chapter. I am a retired medical doctor and do not have a seminary degree and so I approach the text simply reading it in a normal fashion. And so if the plain sense makes good sense in context, I seek to make no other sense out of it lest it be shown to be nonsense. In short, I am an avowed "Literalist" so to speak and not a dispensationalist. Here are the links to the notes on these four incredible chapters that promise the literal nation of Israel a literal future and a literal hope (Jeremiah 29:11)...

The Commanding Importance of the Prophetic Scriptures Charles Feinberg

Jeremiah in The Expositor's Bible Commentary VI: 355-691. Edited by Frank E. Gaebelein. Grand Rapids: Regency Reference Library, - The original 1986 Version . This is not a free resource but mentioned because of its excellent literal handling of the prophetic book of Jeremiah.

Note that the 2010 Revised Version of Jeremiah in the Expositor's Bible Commentary is not written by Feinberg but by Michael Brown, a well known believing Jewish writer. (See blogpost by Dr Brown - Entering the World of Jeremiah)

Rosscup - This well-done, 335-page work eventually came to be in Volume 6 of the Expositor’s Bible Commentary. It joins Feinberg’s other works on Ezekiel, Daniel, and the Minor Prophets. A good introduction on the most notable issues climaxes with a lengthy list of commentaries and a few journal articles, a six and a half page outline, then the text of the N. I. V. (North American, 1978), and the exposition. Comments clarifying Hebrew meanings appear both in the exposition and in special notes. Feinberg gives space to different views, as on the passage of the linen belt (13:1–7) and the Branch (23:5, 6), but clearly supports his preference. He favors a premillennial view on the fulfillment of prophecies about Israel’s far future, and his work is the best detailed effort by a pre-millennialist to date.

Kidner displays his usual high standard of readability, conservatism, conciseness, and directness regarding many issues. Yet he is amillennial on the main prophetic section (chaps 30-33), expecting a spiritual rather than a literal realization.

Here is an excerpt from the HCSB Study Note on Jeremiah 30:3 - The days are...coming announces eschatological times (Jer 3:16; 16:14; 23:5; 31:27,31). It is the distant future that Jeremiah had in mind. The phrase I will restore the fortunes (lit "turn the turnings" or "reverse the fortunes") appears often in these chapters. Restore them to the land I gave to their ancestors looks to a time beyond the future return from the exile. The exiles, when they returned, retook only a small portion of the ancestral lands. Thus the restoration God promised here looks beyond this event.

Jeremiah & Lamentations- Everyman's Bible Commentary - This is not a free resource but mentioned because of its excellent literal handling of the prophetic book of Jeremiah especially in a survey fashion.

Rosscup - A master at surveys does it again here for pastors, Sunday School teachers and lay persons needing a concise sketch. He has a clear outline, charts that put some material into helpful perspective (as oracles vs. the nations, chapters 46–51), and a map on Jeremiah’s geography (p. 149). He sees a premillennial fulfillment of Israel’s restoration as in Jeremiah 33 (p. 93 etc.), and offers brief comment on some problems, for example whether Jeremiah walked to a nearby creek or made a trek to the far off Euphrates River with the loincloth of Chapter 13.

Morgan on the "Restoration of Israel, Jer 31:1-40". Remember that Morgan wrote this in 1912, long before Israel was reborn as a nation in May, 1948! As an aside, Morgan could hardly be labeled a "Dispensationalist." In fact, Morgan interprets the passage as a "literalist" writing:

This is repeatedly promised in Jeremiah and secured by the most solemn asseverations which can be used, but it is minutely described in this and the following chapter. The reason of their restoration is disclosed, Jer 31:3, viz., the unalterable love of God. The extent of the regathering is foretold, Jer 31:8; from every quarter of the earth both the house of Israel and the house of Judah will be brought back again. With deep penitence and supplications for their sins will they come, the Lord Himself leading them, Jer 31:9. Scarcely anything can exceed the pathos, the exquisite tenderness with which the penitents and their Redeemer talk together, as it is foretold in Jer 31:18-20. Of course this is true of all genuine repentance, but it will most emphatically be true in restored Israel, Zech 12:11-14. A New Covenant is made with them in the day they return to God, Jer 31:31-37. That we may be assured that the covenant was not fulfilled at the return from the Babylonian exile, it is quoted once and again in the New Testament and distinctly applied to the Jews of the future, Ro 11:26, 27;Heb 8:8-13; 10:16, 17. A still more convincing proof of the restoration is given in Jer 32:6-15,—the account of the purchase of Hanamel’s land by Jeremiah. The Chaldeans were laying siege to the city; and that they would capture it the prophet very well knew. And yet he is bidden buy his cousin’s field, pay the money for it, for God gave him the assurance that in due time the people would be restored to their inheritance. Abraham bought a field for his dead; Jeremiah bought one for a nation yet unborn. God led him to commit himself openly to the faith of Israel’s final restoration.

Sample Excerpt from Study Notes on Jeremiah 30:7 - time of Jacob’s trouble. The second division of Jeremiah (Jer 30–36) begins with prophecies far beyond the events of the immediate exile and return. An even greater exile and period of great tribulation awaited Israel, but God’s unconditional promise to Abraham cannot be broken (Genesis 22:16-18), so the nation must eventually be saved and remain as the elect nation of God (Romans 11:26-29).

OT Reflections of Christ in Jeremiah

Sample Excerpt - David Baron said, ''You need not speculate upon Israel's history; it is written in a book.'' Then he reverently laid his hand upon chapters 30, 31, and 32 of (see Scriptures on "I will" below) the prophecy of Jeremiah. Peruse these chapters again, noting that Jehovah said ''I will'' at least 33 times in these three chapters. God is determined to reshape the ''clay'' and mold another vessel that will be pleasing to Himself. All of this work concerning the nation of Israel is still future, and it centers in the person of God's Son, Israel's Messiah, the Lord Jesus Christ. He is the One of whom the prophet spoke as follows: "Their Redeemer is strong, the Lord of hosts is His name; He shall thoroughly plead their cause, that He may give rest to the land, and disquiet the inhabitants of Babylon." (Jer 50:34)

"I will" in Jeremiah 30-33 = Jeremiah 30:3, 8-11, 16-22; 31:1, 4, 8-9, 13-14, 20, 27-28, 31, 33-34, 37; 32:37-41, 44

Paul R Van Gorder
Jeremiah in the classic work "Bible Characters" (1896)

Alexander Whyte - Jeremiah was far and away the most spiritually-minded of all the prophets....Jeremiah was, of all the prophets of the Old Testament, the supreme prophet of God to the human heart. In season and out of season, for a long lifetime, he laid siege to the hearts of his hearers. The cure of all your famines, he cried, and all your plagues and all your defeats and all your captivities—the cause and the cure of them all is in your own heart: in the heart of each inhabitant of Jerusalem and each captive in Babylon.”

Jeremiah Commentary - Be a Berean as Utley is amillennial

Quote from Utley in Isaiah Commentary regarding his stance on the nation of Israel: "The world mission of gospel proclamation has passed to the Church (cf. Mt. 28:19–20; Lk 24:47; Acts 1:8)....This is not to imply that God has totally rejected the Jews (cf. Ro 9–11). There may be a place and purpose for end-time, believing Israel (cf. Zech 12:10)." Amen to that last statement!

However read Utley's comments on Jeremiah 31:38-40 - "Since the rebuilt Jerusalem of the post-exilic period was destroyed by Titus in a.d. 70, this must be interpreted as (1) the promises of God are conditional (Ed: That is not at all suggested by the context!!!) (2) it points toward the "new Jerusalem" (i.e., heaven) of Rev. 21:1-21 (which also uses "new" imagery) (Ed: Notice how this genre of interpretation has to "stretch" the normal reading of the text! See my notes beginning in Jeremiah 31:38 Commentary).

Conclusion: Utley's notes should be used with caution as he does not always allow the text to say what the text says if read in a normal manner!

Jeremiah 6:16 Spurgeon's Mediation on this text published in the Sword and Trowel C H Spurgeon
Jeremiah 6:16 The Good Way

Sample excerpt: "Jeremiah 6:16 says to you, "Stand, and see, and ask." I take these words to be a call to thought and consideration. They are as though the prophet said, "Stop and think. Stand still, pause, and reflect. Look within, behind, and before. Do nothing rashly. What are you doing? Where are you going? What will be the end and consequence of your present line of action? Stop and think." Now to set men thinking is one great object which every teacher of religion should always keep before him. Serious thought, in short, is one of the first steps toward heaven. "I thought on my ways," says the Psalmist, "and turned my feet unto Thy testimonies" (Ps 119:59). The prodigal son in the parable "came to himself" before he came to his father. He began to consider quietly the folly and uselessness of his conduct, and then, and not till then, he returned home, saying, "Father, I have sinned" (Luke 15:18). Want of thought is, in truth, the simple cause why many make shipwreck for ever. There are but few, I suspect, who deliberately and calmly choose evil, refuse good, turn their back on God, and resolve to serve sin as sin. The most part are what they are because they began their present course without thought. They would not take the trouble to look forward and consider the consequence of their conduct. By thoughtless actions they created habits which have become second nature to them. They have got into a groove now, and nothing but a special miracle of grace will stop them. That is a solemn charge which Isaiah brings against Israel: "My people doth not consider" (Isa. 1:3). "I never gave it a thought," is the sad excuse which I have heard many a man or woman in the lower classes make for sin. The words of Hosea are strictly true of thousands: "They consider not in their hearts" (Hos. 7:2)." (Comment: Click to read all Ryle's pithy presentation!)

NET Bible Notes

Comment: Considering the fact that there are relatively few excellent, conservative, literal commentaries on Jeremiah, it is worthwhile emphasizing that the Net Bible Notes, albeit sometimes a bit technical, nevertheless provide brief but conservative, literal comments on Jeremiah. Try it out by clicking Jeremiah 1 - on right side of page see Tab labeled "Notes" which includes not only the NET Bible notes but also the synchronized comments by Dr Thomas Constable which are also literal and conservative. Now scroll down the Biblical text (in panel on left side of page) to Jeremiah 2 and you will note that both the NET Bible Notes and Constable's notes scroll in synch (very nice)! In addition, be sure to check the "Articles" Tab which synchronizes a variety of articles on that mention the verses you are studying.

Sermons on
The Book of Jeremiah

(Who Is Charles Simeon? Listen to John Piper's overview of Simeon's life & ministry!)

Although preached between 1832-63, Simeon's sermons are superb, wonderfully expositional, imminently applicable and wholly literal and conservative (e.g., see sample excepts below). And he is not a "dispensationalist" so his interpretations of texts in Jeremiah 30-31 are very interesting and insightful! They are to be highly recommended.

Jeremiah 29:11-13.God will be found of sincere Worshippers

Jeremiah 30:10, 11.God’s gracious Designs towards his chosen People

Sample Excerpt: "They (the words of Jer 30:10,11) look forward to a period far beyond the return of the Jews from Babylon, even to that blessed period, when the whole nation shall be converted to the faith of Christ, and be restored to the possession of the land of Canaan (Jer 30:8,9). That such a period shall arrive, we have the strongest and most unequivocal declarations of Holy Writ (Hos 3:5): and it becomes us all to look forward to it with confidence and joy.... A season of happiness awaits them, such as they never experienced in their most prosperous days....The Egyptians, Assyrians, Chaldeans, Romans, have ceased to exist as distinct kingdoms; and have been lost, as it were, among the people who subdued them: but the Jews are in every place a distinct people, and are so kept by God’s overruling providence, that he may accomplish more manifestly his gracious purposes towards them. Many indeed, like Pharaoh, have sought their destruction; but they live as monuments of God’s unceasing care and faithfulness. And may not we also see the hand of God ordering and overruling every thing for our good?....Look at the Jews in Babylon, or in their present state; What can be conceived more hopeless? — — — Yet they were, and shall be delivered."

Jeremiah 30:17.The Conversion of the Jews—our Duty to promote it

Sample Excerpt: "Considering how much is spoken in the Holy Scriptures concerning the present and future state of the Jewish nation, it is surprising how little they occupy the attention of the Christian world....they are scarcely ever noticed, so that, to bring the subject before a Christian audience seems almost to require an apology....But this indifference towards them is highly criminal. We are not to imagine, that, because they are under God’s displeasure, we are discharged from all those duties which we owe them as men....Was man justified in despising them, because they were under the chastisement of their offended God? Assuredly not!"

Jeremiah 30:21.God’s Regard for those who approach unto Him

Jeremiah 31:3.Gracious Influences the Fruit of electing Love

Jeremiah 31:7–9.The Restoration of the Jews

Sample Excerpt: "That the Jews shall be restored to their own land, is, I think, as plainly declared in Scripture, as any truth in the Bible: though, if any be disposed to doubt it, I am not anxious to maintain a controversy respecting it....To me it appears, that the preceding chapter, together with that before us, is fully upon this point. But, at all events, the future conversion of the Jews is absolutely certain."

Jeremiah 31:8, 9.The Christian Pilgrims (scroll down)

Jeremiah 31:10–14.The preached Gospel a Source of Blessings to the World

Jeremiah 31:18–20.The Reflections of a Penitent

Jeremiah 31:30 The sure Consequences of sin

Jeremiah 31:31–34.The New Covenant

Jeremiah 31:35–37.The Church’s Security

Jeremiah 32:37–42.The future Conversion of the Jews

Sample Excerpt: Amongst the numberless manifestations of God’s mercy in the Scriptures, we cannot but be particularly struck with this, that scarcely ever do we find any awful denunciation of God’s wrath against his offending people, but there is some gracious promise annexed to it, as an encouragement to them to repent. In the whole preceding part of the chapter before us, God declared his determination to give up Jerusalem into the hands of the Chaldeans. Yet behold, at that very time does God open to his people the most consolatory prospects of an ultimate restoration to their own land, and of numberless attendant blessings to be poured out upon them.....A restoration from Babylon is doubtless the point here primarily intended: and that was vouchsafed to them at the expiration of seventy years, according to the predictions of the prophet respecting it. But the terms in which this is declared almost necessarily lead our minds to a restoration yet future....they experienced but little of peace and safety after their first restoration: they were grievously harassed, from time to time....Jerusalem, instead of being defended, as formerly, against enemies, by ramparts of man’s construction, “will be inhabited as a town without walls; because the Lord will be a wall of fire round about her, and the glory in the midst of her (Zech 2:4-5)."

Jeremiah 32:39–41.Salvation is of God from first to last (scroll down)

Jeremiah 33:3.The Importance of Prayer

Jeremiah 33:6–9.Conversion of the Jews—a Matter of Importance to God and Man

Jeremiah 30-31 The Secret Of Strength

Sample Excerpt: This passage (Jer 30:8,9) looks far beyond the return from the Babylonian captivity. It looks down through the years beyond our own day to the time when God promises to restore the fortunes of Israel, and even to raise up David to be king over the people again. Therefore, it is a promise not yet fulfilled. God is still waiting for this time to come. There are other beautiful expressions of this in the song. Notice Jer 30:16, 17. All through the record of history it has been noteworthy that every nation which has attacked the Jews has found itself suffering as a result. God promises here to watch over his people, and to return evil upon those who harm them in any way...It is evident that these words (Jer 30:18-22) have never been fulfilled in all the history of Israel. In all the restorations they have gone through they have never come to anything like this describes; so this awaits the future....(Commenting on Jer 31:7,8) Many thought when Israel became a nation again, and Jews came from all parts of the earth back to the land of Israel, that this was the fulfillment of this passage. But I do not think so. It was a foreview of it, as were other foreviews in history. But it is not yet fully fulfilled, for at the present time they are not there in belief but in unbelief, whereas this passage speaks of their coming back in joy and worship....Then the chapter closes with a very specific promise concerning the city of Jerusalem, Jer 31:38-40: That encompasses practically the whole city of Jerusalem at the present time. It is obvious that this too is yet to be fulfilled. But what a scene of beauty and glory, what a promise of joy and of gladness, after years and centuries of wandering and sorrow! And will you notice when this promise is given? Remember, this is given at a time when these people were at the lowest stage of their national life. They were a wanton, wicked, and wayward people, stubborn and rebellious.

C. H. Spurgeon
All of Spurgeon's Sermons
On Jeremiah

Caveat: While Spurgeon clearly believed in a future restoration of a literal nation of Israel, some of his sermons on prophetic passages are not interpreted literally but focus more on application of principles in those passages. Here is a statement regarding the nation of Israel made by Spurgeon in 1864 (84 years before Israel became a sovereign nation for a second time in May, 1948)...

The meaning of our text, as opened up by the context, is most evidently, if words mean anything, first, that there shall be a political restoration of the Jews to their own land and to their own nationality; and then, secondly, there is in the text, and in the context, a most plain declaration, that there shall be a spiritual restoration, a conversion in fact, of the tribes of Israel. (From The Restoration and Conversion of the Jews - Ezekiel 37:1-10)

Dennis Swanson discusses Spurgeon's view of the millennium noting that...

Despite claims to the contrary, his position was most closely identifiable with that of historic pre-millennialism in teaching the church would experience the tribulation, the millennial kingdom would be the culmination of God's program for the church, a thousand years would separate the resurrection of the just from that of the unjust, and the Jews in the kingdom would be part of the one people of God with the church. (The Millennial Position of Spurgeon)

DISCLAIMER: Before you "go to the commentaries" go to the Scriptures and study them inductively (Click 3 part overview of how to do Inductive Bible Study) in dependence on your Teacher, the Holy Spirit, Who Jesus promised would guide us into all the truth (John 16:13). Remember that Scripture is always the best commentary on Scripture. Any commentary, even those by the most conservative and orthodox teacher/preachers cannot help but have at least some bias of the expositor based upon his training and experience. Therefore the inclusion of specific links does not indicate that we agree with every comment. We have made a sincere effort to select only the most conservative, "bibliocentric" commentaries. Should you discover some commentary or sermon you feel may not be orthodox, please email your concern. I have removed several links in response to concerns by discerning readers. I recommend that your priority be a steady intake of solid Biblical food so that with practice you will have your spiritual senses trained to discern good from evil (Heb 5:14-note).
