Wesley's Notes for Jeremiah 52:34


52:34 All the days of his life - Here ends the history of the kingdom of Judah. I shall only observe the severe judgment of God upon this people, whose kingdom was made up of the two tribes of Judah and Benjamin, and half the tribe of Manasseh. In the numbering of the persons belonging to these two tribes, #Numb 1:27|,35,37, (counting half of the number of the tribe of Manasseh) we find one hundred twenty - six thousand one hundred: #Numb 26:22|,34,41, we find of them one hundred forty - eight thousand four hundred and fifty. Here, ver.#52:30|, we find no more of them carried into captivity, than four thousand and six hundred. From whence we may judge what a multitude of them were slain by the sword, by the famine, and pestilence! It is a dreadful thing to fall into the hands of the living God, to mock his messengers, despise his words, and misuse his prophets, 'till there be no remedy, #2Chron 36:16|.

    "You gave abundant showers, O God you refreshed your weary inheritance." Psalm 68:9 Pray He brings rain on parched lands and times are hard and He will refresh, All, his servants who are discouraged, close to giving up. Alot of these accounts are of unbelief, hard times, and mercy. Pray for lands that are wearied and for people who are faint. Not to judge, in the 11th hour a penny can be made.

    It is always interesting to read and view the commentary. No one should point fingers or place blame concerning GOD's word. Beside the words of our Lord Jesus Christ say he who is without sin cast the first stone. I have learned that leaning on our own understanding is disastrous. Humbling myself with prayer and conviction while asking God for understanding of his word. Has always served me well.

    Sharon:YOU are not a Child of God? You are Taking Away From His Word. Adding YOUR OWN INTERPRETATION. That Says You're a Child of The Devil. Search Your Heart.The Road is Wide that Leads to Hell. All Who are Born Again are His Children. Coming Soon to Take Us Home. Children of God (1John 3:9-10) We are The Children of God (Romans 8:14-17) 1 Little Deviation, Will Send Others to the Lake of FIRE

    Bob K, I will add spiritual knowledge to your comment. Although God allow others to tear down the temple and destroy the city, God people had spiritually tore down the temple and destroyed the city by their own heart when they disobeyed and dishonored God, ways and words spiritually. The only thing the enemy did was destroy the natural temple and city because God people became accursed to the Lord

    for verse 31 shows that Jesus was not born on the 25th of december.This day is not about Christ and there is no where in the bible where Jesus birth was celebrated the way it is done today Even after his death there is nothing at all. The remaining apostles never mentioned or celebrated his date of birth
  • Obbie Beal
    Sin, sin, sin, brought the 'wrath of GOD' on Babylon above; 1000s of years later the same sin, sin, sin, (of this Babylon above) appears again in Babylon of Revelation, and Jehovah /GOD release his wrath on the nation / Babylon in Revelation also. ( the DNA of the Babylon above pasted down through 1000s of years and produce the same sin in the Babylon of today. Both nations receive GOD'S wrath.
