Jeremiah 4:12


4:12 No, 1  a wind too strong for that will come at my bidding.

Yes, even now I, myself, am calling down judgment on them.’ 2 

Jeremiah 4:28


4:28 Because of this the land will mourn

and the sky above will grow black. 3 

For I have made my purpose known 4 

and I will not relent or turn back from carrying it out.” 5 

1 tn The word “No” is not in the text but is carried over from the connection with the preceding line “not for…”

2 tn Heb “will speak judgments against them.”

3 sn The earth and the heavens are personified here and depicted in the act of mourning and wearing black clothes because of the destruction of the land of Israel.

4 tn Heb “has spoken and purposed.” This is an example of hendiadys where two verbs are joined by “and” but one is meant to serve as a modifier of the other.

5 tn Heb “will not turn back from it.”
