Everett's Study Notes on the Holy Scriptures

Jeremiah 23

Verses 1-40

Jeremiah 23:1 Woe be unto the pastors that destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture! saith the LORD.

Jeremiah 23:1 Scripture Reference - Note a similar verse:

Ezekiel 34:2, “Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel, prophesy, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD unto the shepherds; Woe be to the shepherds of Israel that do feed themselves! should not the shepherds feed the flocks?”

Jeremiah 23:23-25 Comments - Jeremiah 23:24-25 reveals one aspect of God’s divine character as being omnipresent, that is, He is present everywhere. Jeremiah 2:25 reveals another aspect of God’s character as being omniscient, or all-knowing.

Jeremiah 23:29 Is not my word like as a fire? saith the LORD; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces?

Jeremiah 23:29 Scripture References - Note:

Matthew 21:44, “And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.”
