Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Jeremiah 1:3


1:3 It - The word of the Lord. Jehoiakim - Called at first by Josiah, Eliakim. Jehoahaz and Jehoiakin, whereof the former reigned before him, the latter succeeded, are conceived not to be mentioned, because they reigned each of them but three months, and therefore not considerable. Of Jerusalem - The inhabitants of Jerusalem, under Zedekiah, during all which time Jeremiah prophesied. Captive - This does not terminate the time of his prophecies; for he prophesied also both in Judea, and in Egypt afterwards: but only relates to what he prophesied while the city and temple were standing, the rest seeming to be added as a supplement. Fifth month - Of that present year; for, tho' the year end not at the fifth month, yet it might end the year of Zedekiah's reign, because he might begin his reign at the fifth month of the year.

    1. We are foreknown of God. 2. We have been created and made to be God's Prophets. 3. The strength of our assurance is that God is with us, and guiding us to do all that He says. 4. It is absolutely imperative that we have His words put in our mouths. 5. The authority of God over all Nations, for the specific purpose of being sent to root out, pull down, destroy and throw down, to build and plant.
  • A disciple
    If in the calling of Jeremiah, we all see our own calling in Christ; it is because of the Divine Calling of the LORD's Anointed the Saviour, the great Antitype of all Prophets and Saints. The things told to Jeremiah, we can and should apply to ourselves; for why else were they written? And they have all their fulfillment in the Lord Jesus Christ! As we study these words, pray them in and believe!
