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

Jeremiah 37


No-one listened to Jems, but one day the king wanted to pray with him.

Now, Babylon had fled because Egypt had come to Judah's defence, but Jems told the king that Babylon would come back and take Jerusalem.

Jems left on business, but a guard accused him of deserting to the Babylonians. So Jems was imprisoned and beaten. The king came to him, and Jems prophesied the same thing, and at Jems' request, the king gave Jems decent prison conditions.

Key verse:
8. Then the Babylonians will return and attack this city; they will capture it and burn it down.

My thoughts:
Jeremiah's prophesies basically have one point. Babylon will pwn you.

The kings and Jeremiah seem to have a constant love-hate relationship. Fair nuff.
