Bible Commentary for Jeremiah 2:23

Wesley's Notes for Jeremiah 2:23


2:23 Baalim - The word is plural, as comprehensive of all their idols. Thy way - The filthiness thou hast left behind thee, whereby thou mayst be traced. Valley - Whether of Hinnom where they burnt their children in sacrifice, or in any valleys where thou hast been frequent in thy idolatries. Traversing - A metaphor taken from creatures that are hunted, that keep no direct path.

  • Lisa on Jeremiah 2:23
    weather people like president trump or not weather he knows it or not he has already fullfilled one of the last propheciesin the bible prior to jesus return. Moveing the U.S Emabassy in isreal back to Jerusalem and recognizing jerusalem as the capitial of Isreal is one of the prophecies that must be fullfilled no other president in history was able to do that.In case anyone wants to know where i stand it isnt with biden thats for sure. this pandimic natural desaters and courrpution isnt nothing compared to whats about to happen Read your book of revelationis unfolding right before our eyes. everyday the bounderies of sin are being pushed futher and further i for one is wqnting to go with my Father to heaven.
