Day 168 – April 8, 2024: Jeremiah 49-52 and Proverbs 25

While we have focused on how disappointed the Lord is with Judah and Israel, these chapters contain promises of restoration and revenge. We see that God is going to move against the primary enemies of the people of God. Definitely we read of Babylone eventually being defeated and torn down and her cities and her livestock and her produce decimated. I assume there was some joy in this prophecy, becase as we read at the end of this book, Babylon in the present was anything but emaciated. They were coming after Judah and they successfully took over all of the land that had been given to the people of Israle by God so many generations earlier. A promise of restoration is nice, but for how long, Lord?
