Jeremiah 46:1-28

At the 4th year of the reign of Jehoiakim before the 1st Captivity (Jer. 46:2), Jeremiah foretold the crushing defeat that was soon-to-be suffered by the Egyptian Army, only further confirming and reinforcing the pathetic appeals made to the Jews so far (DON’T TRUST EGYPT!). Moreover, this serves as a stunning example of how the omnipotent arm of God has indeed raised up Babylon for the accomplishment divine purposes – here called, “the Day of the Lord GOD of Hosts, a Day of Vengeance” (Jer. 46:10) – whereby the Lord would exact the outstanding causes of justice that He has with the nations of the earth, and much more with the Jews of the Kingdom of Judah!
