Jeremiah 28:14

Context
28:14 For the Lord God of Israel who rules over all 1  says, “I have put an irresistible yoke of servitude on all these nations 2  so they will serve King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon. And they will indeed serve him. I have even given him control over the wild animals.”’” 3 

1 tn Heb “Yahweh of armies, the God of Israel.” See the study notes on 2:19 and 7:3 for this title.

2 tn Heb “An iron yoke I have put on the necks of all these nations.”

3 sn The emphasis is on the absoluteness of Nebuchadnezzar’s control. The statement is once again rhetorical and not to be taken literally. See the study note on 27:6.
