Bible commentary

Discussion for Jeremiah 52:13

  • see Lam, 2:15. Spiritually, God says those people who turned away from Him were "The perfection of beauty, The joy of the whole earth " God had the greatest of praise for them! Yet look what happened, they turned from the "perfection of beauty, The joy of the whole earth, and turned towards sin and selfishness! The great God 's own work was destroyed.
  • Jer,52:12-14. this fact should be of interest to all of us, because in A.D. 70 the temple was also destroyed on the 10th day of the fifth month. That was not just coincidence. But that destruction was only a type of what is about to happen in this end time. Lamentations is primarily about the destruction of another temple: the spirital temple of God.
