Jeremiah 45:5


Are you looking for great things for yourself? Do not look for such things. For I, the Lord, affirm 1  that I am about to bring disaster on all humanity. 2  But I will allow you to escape with your life 3  wherever you go.”’”

NET © Notes

tn Heb “oracle of the Lord.”

sn Compare Jer 25:31, 33. The reference here to universal judgment also forms a nice transition to the judgments on the nations that follow in Jer 46-51 which may be another reason for the placement of this chapter here, out of its normal chronological order (see also the study note on v. 1).

tn Heb “I will give you your life for a spoil.” For this idiom see the translator’s note on 21:9 and compare the usage in 21:9; 38:2; 39:18.
