Jeremiah 4:7

Context

4:7 Like a lion that has come up from its lair 1 

the one who destroys nations has set out from his home base. 2 

He is coming out to lay your land waste.

Your cities will become ruins and lie uninhabited.

Jeremiah 4:26

Context

4:26 I looked and saw that the fruitful land had become a desert

and that all of the cities had been laid in ruins.

The Lord had brought this all about

because of his blazing anger. 3 

1 tn Heb “A lion has left its lair.” The metaphor is turned into a simile for clarification. The word translated “lair” has also been understood to refer to a hiding place. However, it appears to be cognate in meaning to the word translated “lair” in Ps 10:9; Jer 25:38, a word which also refers to the abode of the Lord in Ps 76:3.

2 tn Heb “his place.”

3 tn Heb “because of the Lord, because of his blazing anger.”
