My daily exploration of the Bible, taking it one chapter at a time. If I do it everyday, it'll take 1189 days.

Jeremiah 11

Mmm... plot...

This was the covenant. Do what I say, and I'll be your God. Tell the people that they have blatantly and consistently disobeyed me! They have conspired against me and followed other gods. I will punish them and not hear them beg for mercy. They can go to their other gods. One for each city. Sacrifices cannot save you.


God showed me that they were plotting against me. I had no idea. God will punish the men of Anathoth for this.

Key verse:
18. Because the Lord revealed their plot to me, I knew it, for at that time he showed me what they were doing.

My thoughts:
Jeremiah is all over the place as a book. Here it suddenly flicks into Jeremiah's first person and people are plotting against him. It gives interesting variation to the book, and the first person parts add a personal touch, but it is difficult to follow.

Who said the book of Jeremiah doesn't have a plot!
