Jeremiah 3

Verse 6

The Lord said

The general character of the second message to Judah is:

(1) of reproach that the example of Jehovah's chastening of the northern kingdom 2 Kings 17:1-18 had produced no effect upon Judah, e.g. Jeremiah 3:6-10.

(2) of warning of a like chastisement impending over Judah, e.g. Jeremiah 3:15-17.

(3) of touching appeals to return to Jehovah, e.g. Jeremiah 3:12-14.

(4) of promises of final national restoration and blessing, e.g. Jeremiah 3:16-18.

Israel

"Israel" and "Ephraim": names by which the northern kingdom (the ten tribes) is usually called in the prophets. When by "Israel" the whole nation is meant, it will appear from the context.
