Matthew Henry's Complete Commentary - Jeremiah 25:8-14

Here is the sentence grounded upon the foregoing charge: ?Because you have not heard my words, I must take another course with you,? Jer. 25:8. Note, When men will not regard the judgments of God's mouth they may expect to feel the judgments of his hands, to hear the rod, since they would not hear the word; for the sinner must either be parted from his sin or perish in it. Wrath comes without remedy against those only that sin without repentance. It is not so much men's turning aside that... read more

Bridgeway Bible Commentary - Jeremiah 25:1-14

Seventy years captivity (25:1-14)Babylon conquered Egypt in 605 BC (the fourth year of Jehoiakim’s reign according to Judean reckoning, the third year of his reign according to Babylonian reckoning; cf. Daniel 1:1-6). Judah therefore came for the first time under the direct control of Babylon. Jeremiah now clearly sees his prophecies being fulfilled before his eyes. He reminds the people that for over twenty years he has been bringing God’s message to them but they have not listened (25:1-3).... read more

Expository Notes of Dr. Thomas Constable - Jeremiah 25:8-9

The Lord announced that because they had not obeyed Him, He would bring Nebuchadnezzar down from the north, and destroy them and their neighbor nations with an awful, everlasting devastation. Nebuchadnezzar was the Lord’s servant in the same sense Cyrus was (cf. Isaiah 44:28 to Isaiah 45:1); he served the Lord by carrying out His will, for the most part unwittingly (cf. Jeremiah 27:6; Jeremiah 43:10; Acts 2:23). Since God’s people would not listen to His servants the prophets (Jeremiah 25:4),... read more
