Jeremiah 7:14

Context
7:14 So I will destroy this temple which I have claimed as my own, 1  this temple that you are trusting to protect you. I will destroy this place that I gave to you and your ancestors, 2  just like I destroyed Shiloh. 3 

Jeremiah 15:16

Context

15:16 As your words came to me I drank them in, 4 

and they filled my heart with joy and happiness

because I belong to you. 5 

1 tn Heb “over which my name is called.” For this nuance of this idiom cf. BDB 896 s.v. קָרָא Niph.2.d(4) and see the usage in 2 Sam 12:28.

2 tn Heb “fathers” (also in vv. 22, 25, 26).

3 tn Heb “I will do to this house which I…in which you put…and to this place which…as I did to Shiloh.”

4 sn Heb “Your words were found and I ate them.” This along with Ezek 2:83:3 is a poetic picture of inspiration. The prophet accepted them, assimilated them, and made them such a part of himself that he spoke with complete assurance what he knew were God’s words.

5 tn Heb “Your name is called upon me.”

sn See Jer 14:9 where this idiom is applied to Israel as a whole and Jer 7:10 where it is applied to the temple. For discussion cf. notes on 7:10.
