Jeremiah 7:32

Context
7:32 So, watch out!” 1  says the Lord. “The time will soon come when people will no longer call those places Topheth or the Valley of Ben Hinnom. But they will call that valley 2  the Valley of Slaughter and they will bury so many people in Topheth they will run out of room. 3 

Jeremiah 19:11

Context
19:11 Tell them the Lord who rules over all says, 4  ‘I will do just as Jeremiah has done. 5  I will smash this nation and this city as though it were a potter’s vessel which is broken beyond repair. 6  The dead will be buried here in Topheth until there is no more room to bury them.’ 7 

1 tn Heb “Therefore, behold!”

2 tn Heb “it will no longer be said ‘Topheth’ or ‘the Valley of Ben Hinnom’ but ‘the valley of slaughter.’

3 tn Heb “And they will bury in Topheth so there is not room.”

4 tn Heb “Thus says Yahweh of armies.” For this title see the study note on 2:19. The translation attempts to avoid the confusion of embedding quotes within quotes by reducing this one to an indirect quote.

5 tn The adverb “Thus” or “Like this” normally points back to something previously mentioned. See, e.g., Exod 29:35; Num 11:15; 15:11; Deut 25:9.

6 tn Heb “Like this I will break this people and this city, just as one breaks the vessel of a potter which is not able to be repaired.”

7 sn See Jer 7:22-23 for parallels.
