NET © Notes

sn It is not always clear why verses were placed in their present position in the editorial process of collecting Jeremiah’s sermons and the words the Lord spoke to him (see Jer 36:4, 32 for reference to two of these collections). Here it is probable that vv. 23-26 were added as a further answer to the question raised in v. 12.

tn Or “Strong people should not brag that they are strong.”

tn Heb “…in their wisdom…in their power…in their riches.”
