Yesterday the dialog between the Lord and Jeremiah continued. We heard of the drought. And the Lord forbid Jeremiah to pray for the people of Judah.

Translation note:

2And if they say to you, ‘But where can we go?’ tell them, ‘This is what the LORD says:

“‘Those who are destined for death, will die;
those who are destined for war, [will die in//to] war;
those who are destined for famine, [will die in//to] famine;
those who are destined for captivity, [will die in//to] captivity.’

This is an acrostic psalm, and it gives us a great place to start when praising God.

The chapter division breaks up what Paul was teaching about God’s wisdom, so let’s start today in chapter 1 verse 18.

Translation notes:

2For I decided that while I was with you I would forget everything except Jesus Christ, [and the fact that He//he one who] was crucified.

6Yet when I am among mature believers, I do speak with words of wisdom, but not the kind of wisdom that belongs to this world or to the rulers of this world, who [will quickly pass away//are soon forgotten].
