The Ruin of People Who Turn Away

8:4 to 9:22

This small section continues the book’s proclamation of judgment on Y’hudah and Tziyon. It is similar to the collection of oracles in Chapters 4 to 6. These oracles function as witnesses to the prophetic preaching that was ignored by the people. In a poignant dialogical style, Yirmeyahu expresses his sorrow and frustration for his people and his City.

Bp – I Will Take Away Their Harvest, There Will Be No Grapes on the Vine (8:4-17)

Bq – Since My People are Crushed, I am Crushed, and Horror Grips Me (8:18 to 9:9)

Br – Jerusalem’s Fall and Exile Prophesied (9:10-22)
