Jeremiah 42-45

Day 190

JJ is at preschool....and Hannalee is.......too quiet! Hum......

Chapter 42 They've escaped to Egypt even though the word of the Lord was to stay put. They were warned; they disobeyed. To them....Egypt seems safer. They take Jeremiah and Baruch with them.

Chapter 43-44 Jeremiah was taken to Egypt against his will and enacts his last recorded parable, which is the same as previous one. Despite all that has happened in consequence of playing God false, the people still refuse to listen. They will go back to worshipping the Queen of Heaven and "all will be well again." The Queen of Hearts is a pagan god that they were worshipping...thinking that the grass was greener on the other side! WRONG-O! :)

Chapter 45 a nice and short chapter about Baruch. God promises that he will escape the coming slaughter in the tearing down and pulling up of what God has built up and planted. This promise (from chapter 26?) comes true here in v. 5-6.

tomorrow: 46-48 and then 49-50 the next day.
