Bible commentary

Discussion for Jeremiah 37

  • Nimo muiru
    Despite Jeremiahs fate,he went on proclaiming the message as it was from God. King Zedekiah was lukewarm on whether to follow the false prophesy or Jeremiahs message from God. Due to Zedekiahs ignorance and fear of his prophets and people,Judah was destroyed.
  • Andrew
    Irijah and all the princes that smote Jeremiah, no doubt must also have their share of curses from God for their wickedness.
  • SILVANUS MATHIAS
    Sometimes when God uses man to show how strong and Mighty He is...He wont care the persecution the Man will face until His word comes to pass and this means we are His servants
