Jeremiah (1)

Resource Toolbox

jer - ē̇ - mı̄´a (( a ) ירמיהוּ , yirmeyāhū , or ( b ) shorter form, ירמיה , yirmeyāh , both differently explained as "Yah establishes (so Giesebrext), whom Yahweh casts," i.e. possibly, as Gesenius suggests, "appoints" (A. B. Davidson in HDB , II, 569 a ), and "Yahweh looseneth" (the womb); see BDB ): The form ( b ) is used of Jeremiah the prophet only in Jeremiah 27:1 ; Jeremiah 28:5 , Jeremiah 28:6 , Jeremiah 28:10 , Jeremiah 28:11 , Jeremiah 28:12 , Jeremiah 28:15 ; Jeremiah 29:1 ; Ezra 1:1 ; Daniel 9:2 , while the other is found 116 times in Jeremiah alone. In 1 Esdras 1:28, 32, 47, 57; 2 Esdras 2:18, English Versions of the Bible has "Jeremy," so the King James Version in 2 Macc 2:1, 5, 7; Matthew 2:17 ; Matthew 27:9 ; in Matthew 16:14 , the King James Version has "Jeremias," but the Revised Version (British and American) in 2 Maccabees and Matthew has "Jeremiah."
