Jeremiah Chapter 10
3For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe.
9 Silver spread into plates is brought from Tarshish, and gold from Uphaz, the work of the workman, and of the hands of the founder: blue and purple is their clothing: they are all the work of cunning men.
13 When he uttereth his voice, there is a multitude of waters in the heavens, and he causeth the vapours to ascend from the ends of the earth; he maketh lightnings with rain, and bringeth forth the wind out of his treasures.
25 Pour out thy fury upon the heathen that know thee not, and upon the families that call not on thy name: for they have eaten up Jacob, and devoured him, and consumed him, and have made his habitation desolate.

Matthew Henry's Jeremiah Chapter 10 Bible commentary...
The absurdity of idolatry. (1-16) Destruction denounced against Jerusalem. (17-25)1-16 The prophet shows the glory of Israel's God, and exposes the folly of idolaters. Charms and other attempts to obtain supernatural help, or to pry into futurity, are copied from the wicked customs of the heathen. Let us stand in awe, and not dare provoke God, by giving that glory to another which is due to him alone. He is ready to forgive, and save all who repent and believe in the name of his Son Jesus Christ. Faith learns these blessed truths from the word of God; but all knowledge not from that source, leads to doctrines of vanity.
17-25 The Jews who continued in their own land, felt secure. But, sooner or later, sinners will find all things as the word of God has declared, and that its threatenings are not empty terrors. Submission will support the believer under every grief allotted to him; but what can render the load of Divine vengeance easy to be borne by those who fall under it in sullen despair? Those cannot expect to prosper, who do not, by faith and prayer, take God with them in all their ways. The report of the enemy's approach was very dreadful. Yet the designs which men lay deep, and think well formed, are dashed to pieces in a moment. Events are often overruled, so as to be quite contrary to what we intended and expected. If the Lord has directed our steps into the ways of peace and righteousness, let us entreat him to enable us to walk therein. Say not, Lord, do not correct me; but, Lord, do not correct me in anger. We may bear the smart of God's rod, but we cannot bear the weight of his wrath. Those who restrain prayer, prove that they know not God; for those who know him will seek him, and seek his favour. If even severe corrections lead sinners to be convinced of wholesome truths, they will have abundant cause for gratitude. And they will then humble themselves before the Lord.

It 's about the tree and the custom 's and tradition 's of men. It 's clear as crystal, and yet so many defend their beloved FESTIVITIES. The text is so.... CLEAR. Learn not the way of the HEATHEN.
Michael Parkes's Jeremiah Chapter 10 comment about verse 17 on 11/04/2014, 6:13am...
I just awoke from a dream of my girlfriend 's son, of whom I am the acting father, was being physically transformed and toyed with as well as spoken through, by demonic forces. I was very distressed in the dream, crying and asking for help from the Lord. My parents, who are in reality a great woman and man of God, laughed at me and told me I was being dramatic, then dropped their heads in what seemed to be sincere prayer to God. I awoke very distraught. I moved about unsure of what to do, going to his crib and praying, getting on my face, standing back up, moving about. I finally went to read my bible. I opened it up to a random Jeremiah 10 10 and began to read. When I made my way to verse 17 it seemed clear to me that God was telling me to take what I have Wares as a man of God and live no more in sin and leave this way that has opened me up to attack under siege . I am at the moment living in a way that does not please God and that opened me up to being attacked by such dreams, so I believe. In other words, God used Jeremiah 10 10 18 to make me choose to move towards Him instead of dangerously "straddling the fence " and living in temptation.

We must not fear any foreign gods because there is no life or movement in them.These gods was made from resources that was created by the creator who is our heavenly FATHER.So this is telling us that we must worship the CREATOR and not the creation.We also see that the end time pastors are not true pastors that 's appointed by GOD.They are self appointed and their goal is to rob the churches but GOD tells us that they will be repaid.In John chapter 10 it tells us that a true shepherd will always look after and protect the flock.We must also not trust in the ways of man because he will always fail you but you must trust in the ways of the living GOD who will never fail you.The bible tells us that he is the same yesterday,today and forever.GOD bless

I believe that it is just using the tree as an example of something they liked to worship like people who worship "mother earth ", it doesn 't speak, it 's like worshipping any image that doesn 't speak..God spoke to the people from a fire and from the fog..

Jeremiah 10 is most definitely talking about a christmass tree. People do fall down at the tree and worship their gods under it. The word of God tells us that covetousness IS IDOLATRY. Selah. Let that sink in awhile.
SANDY's Jeremiah Chapter 10 comment on 3/19/2014, 1:15pm...
In context Jeremiah is clearly not describing Christmas trees he is talking about idolatrous graven and molten images of the heathen the worthless futile powerless statues of their pagan gods that are not to be feared Decked in gold and silver and clothed in purple etc They have to be carried they cannot move they cannot speak they should not be feared they should not be worshiped they cannot speak life and death is in the power of the tongue so this makes them neither good or evil just plain dumb
