Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Jeremiah 1:10


1:10 The kingdoms - Having now received his commission, he is directed to whom he is to go; to the greatest, not only single persons, but whole nations, as the Babylonians, Persians, and Egyptians. To pull down - That is, to prophecy that I will pull down; which I will as certainly effect, as if thou hadst done it thyself: for, according to scripture - usage, the prophets are said to do that which they foretell shall come to pass. To plant - Metaphors taken from architects and gardeners: either the former words relate to the enemies of God, and the latter to his friends; or rather to both conditionally: if they repent, he will build them up, he will increase their families, and settle them in the land; if they do not, he will root them up, and pull them down.

  • Partridge Mutiso John for verse 10
    When Fear steps in Faith walks out! Ephesians 2 10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. "...we should not settle for anything less than what Jesus at the Cross was not sacrificed for... " "..nothing less than dominion... "Righteousness, being destined with God, the pure spiritual heavenborn possibilities associated with God!... "
  • Timesoftrouble for verse 10
    This world of believers can see no truth with understanding which is why none, no, not one person pleases God as written in Psalms 14:2-3; therefore they see not this world filled with lies and corruption being pulled up by its roots and cast into the fires of tribulation for its coming destruction; and once then when God's kingdom comes, those chosen as overcomers of the god of this world will be able to build and plant a righteous human race through God's laws based on love rather than pathetic human rule which has brought destruction.
