Jeremiah, the Book of

Resource Toolbox
Additional Links

In the chronological order of its several predictions and divine messages, is somewhat difficult of arrangement; but may be divide, by a natural and sufficiently accurate method, in to four general sections, containing severally the prophecies uttered in the reigns of Josiah, Jehoiakim, Zedekiah, and Gedaliah. The last chapter of the book appears to have been added, perhaps by Ezra; it is taken almost verbatim from 2 Kings 24:18-20 25:1-30 . See Jeremiah 51:64 .

Jeremiah wrote also the book of LAMENTATIONS, in which he utters the most plaintive and pathetic sentiments over the calamities of his people. See LAMENTATIONS.
