For the CANONICAL order and place of the Prophets, see Appdx-1, and cp. page 1206, For the CHRONOLOGICAL order of the Prophets, see Appdx-77. For the inter-relation of the prophetic books, see Appdx-78. For references to the Pentateuch in the Prophets, see Appdx-92. For the Canonical order of Jeremiah''s prophecies, see below. For the Chronological order of Jeremiah''s prophecies, see Appdx-83, For the Septuagint version of Jeremiah, see Appdx-84. The prophecies of Jeremiah do not profess to be given in chronological order (see Appdx-83 ); nor is there any reason why they should be so given. Why, we ask, should modern critics first assume that they ought to be, and then condemn them because they are not ? It is the historical portions, which concern JEHOIAKIM and ZEDEKIAH , that are chiefly so affected. And, Who was Jehoiakim that his history should be of any importance? Was it not he who "cut up the Word of Jehovah with a penknife, and cast it in the fire"? Why should not his history be "cut up"? ZEDEKIAH rejected the same Word of Jehovah. Why should his history be respected ? Secular authors take the liberty of arranging their own literary matter as they choose; why should this liberty be denied to the sacred writers? The fact that the canonical and chronological portions have each their own particular Structures, and that both are perfect, shows that both orders have the same Divine Author. Jeremiah''s prophecy is dated (Jeremiah 1:2 , Jeremiah 1:3 ) as being "in the days of Josiah ... in the thirteenth year of his reign. It came also in the days of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah ... unto the end of the eleventh year of Zedekiah ... unto the carrying away of Jerusalem captive in the fifth month." The 13th year of Josiah was 518 B.C. The 11th year of Zedekiah was 477 B.C. Therefore the whole period covered by Jeremiah was 41 years, as shown in Appdx-50, pp. 60, 67, 68, and Appdx-77. It is highly probable that this period was exactly forty years the last probationary period (see Appdx-10) vouchsafed by Jehovah, before Jerusalem was destroyed and the Temple burnt.* But, as the month in the thirteenth year of Josiah, at which the Word first came to Jeremiah, is not stated, the whole period has to be shown as above, viz. 41 years. Having regard to the Formulae of prophetic utterances (see Appdx-82), there appear to be some fifty-one distinct and clearly marked prophecies, commencing with some such formula as "The word of the LORD came", &c. It would have been well if the book could have been divided into fifty-one chapters (instead of fifty-two) so as to coincide with these. They commence as follows:

Like the corresponding period of probation covered by the Acts of the Apostles, before the destruction of the second Temple.

As the end of the kingdom of Judah drew near, many of the Jews were determined to go into Egypt; and this in spite of the warning given by Jehovah through Jeremiah. In Jeremiah 44:0 we have the latest prophecy concerning those who had gone thither; which declared that they should not escape, but should be consumed there (Jeremiah 44:27 , &c). This prophecy must have been fulfilled concerning that generation; but their successors, or others that subsequently followed, continued there a little longer, until the time came for Egypt itself to fall into the hands of Babylon. Recent discoveries of Papyri in the ruins of Elephantine (an island in the Nile, opposite Assouan), dating from the fifth century B. C, bear witness to two great facts: (1) That Jews were then dwelling there (in 424-405 B. C). (2) That they were observing the Feast of the Passover, "as it is written in the law of Moses". The importance of these Papyri lies in the fact that modern critics confidently assert and assume that the greater part of the Pentateuch was not written till after the Exile; and even then neither collectively as a whole, nor separately in its distinctive books. In Appdx-92 it is shown that all through the prophets (who lived at the time of the kings in whose reigns they prophesied) there is a constant reference to the books of the Pentateuch, which conclusively proves that their contents were well known both to the prophets themselves and those whom they addressed. The Pentateuch, being full of legal expressions, technical ceremonial terms, and distinctive phraseology, affords abundant evidence of the above fact, and makes it easy to call continuous attention to it in the notes of The Companion Bible. But there is further evidence found in the Papyri now discovered in the ruins at Elephantine in Upper Egypt. They show that the Jews who dwelt there had a temple of their own and offered up sacrifices therein. That once, when this their temple was destroyed by the Egyptians, they appealed to the Persian governor of Judah, asking permission to restore it (Papyrus I). There is a list preserved, registering the contributions towards the upkeep of the temple (containing the names of many ladies). But the most interesting and important of these Papyri is one dated in the year 419 B. C, which is a Passover "announcement" of the approaching feast, such as were made from the earliest times to the present day (see Nehemiah 8:15 ), containing a brief epitome of its laws and requirements. This particular announcement shows that the following passages were well known: Exodus 12:16 . Leviticus 23:7 , Leviticus 23:8 . Numbers 9:1-14 .Deuteronomy 16:6 . This Papyrus has been recently published by Professor Edward Sachau, of Berlin: Aramaische Papyrus und Ostraka aus einer jiidischen Militarkolonie zu Elephantine. Altorientalische Sprachdenkmaler des 5 . Jahrhunderts vor Chr., mit 75 Lichtdrucktafalein. Leipzig, 1911. A small edition (texts only) by Professor Ungnad, of Jena, is published also under the title of Aramaische Papyrus aus Elephantine. Nearly 2,400 years, since this announcement by Hananjah to the Jews in Egypt, have gone by. Elephantine is now a heap of ruins. The colony of Jews has passed away (unless the "Falashas" of Abyssinia are their descendants), but the Jewish nation still existsand continues to keep the Passover, a standing witness to their truth of holy Scripture, 44. "THE JEWS WHICH DWELL IN THE LAND OP EGYPT" (Jeremiah 44:1 ). As the end of the kingdom of Judah drew near, many of the Jews were determined to go into Egypt; and this in spite of the warning given by Jehovah through Jeremiah. In Jeremiah 44:0 we have the latest prophecy concerning those who had gone thither; which declared that they should not escape, but should be consumed there (Jeremiah 44:27 , &c). This prophecy must have been fulfilled concerning that generation; but their successors, or others that subsequently followed, continued there a little longer, until the time came for Egypt itself to fall into the hands of Babylon. Recent discoveries of Papyri in the ruins of Elephantine (an island in the Nile, opposite Assouan), dating from the fifth century B. C, bear witness to two great facts: (1) That Jews were then dwelling there (in 424-405 B. C). (2) That they were observing the Feast of the Passover, "as it is written in the law of Moses". The importance of these Papyri lies in the fact that modern critics confidently assert and assume that the greater part of the Pentateuch was not written till after the Exile; and even then neither collectively as a whole, nor separately in its distinctive books. In Appdx-92 it is shown that all through the prophets (who lived at the time of the kings in whose reigns they prophesied) there is a constant reference to the books of the Pentateuch, which conclusively proves that their contents were well known both to the prophets themselves and those whom they addressed. The Pentateuch, being full of legal expressions, technical ceremonial terms, and distinctive phraseology, affords abundant evidence of the above fact, and makes it easy to call continuous attention to it in the notes of The Companion Bible. But there is further evidence found in the Papyri now discovered in the ruins at Elephantine in Upper Egypt. They show that the Jews who dwelt there had a temple of their own and offered up sacrifices therein. That once, when this their temple was destroyed by the Egyptians, they appealed to the Persian governor of Judah, asking permission to restore it (Papyrus I). There is a list preserved, registering the contributions towards the upkeep of the temple (containing the names of many ladies). But the most interesting and important of these Papyri is one dated in the year 419 B. C, which is a Passover "announcement" of the approaching feast, such as were made from the earliest times to the present day (see Nehemiah 8:15 ), containing a brief epitome of its laws and requirements. This particular announcement shows that the following passages were well known: Exodus 12:16 . Leviticus 23:7 , Leviticus 23:8 . Numbers 9:1-14 .Deuteronomy 16:6 .
