Jeremiah 23:21-22

Context

23:21 I did not send those prophets.

Yet they were in a hurry to give their message. 1 

I did not tell them anything.

Yet they prophesied anyway.

23:22 But if they had stood in my inner circle, 2 

they would have proclaimed my message to my people.

They would have caused my people to turn from their wicked ways

and stop doing the evil things they are doing.

1 tn Heb “Yet they ran.”

sn The image is that of a messenger bearing news from the king. See 2 Sam 18:19-24; Jer 51:31; Isa 40:9; 52:7; Hab 2:2 (the tablet/scroll bore the message the runner was to read to the intended recipients of his message). Their message has been given in v. 17 (see notes there for cross references).

2 tn Or “had been my confidant.” See the note on v. 18.
