Jeremiah 52* The fate of Zedekiah. (1-11) The destruction of Jerusalem.(12-23) The captivities. (24-30) The advancement of Jehoiachin.(31-34)1-11 This fruit of sin we should pray against above any thing;Cast me not away from thy presence, #Ps 51:11|. None are castout of God's presence but those who by sin have first thrownthemselves out. Zedekiah's flight was in vain, for there is noescaping the judgments of God; they come upon the sinner, andovertake him, let him flee where he will. 12-23 The Chaldean army made woful havoc. But nothing is soparticularly related here, as the carrying away of the articlesin the temple. The remembrance of their beauty and value showsus the more the evil of sin. 24-30 The leaders of the Jews caused them to err; but now theyare, in particular, made monuments of Divine justice. Here is anaccount of two earlier captivities. This people often werewonders both of judgment and mercy. 31-34 See this history of king Jehoiachin in #2Ki 25:27-30|.Those under oppression will find it is not in vain for them tohope and quietly to wait for the salvation of the Lord. Ourtimes are in God's hand, for the hearts of all we have to dealwith are so. May we be enabled, more and more, to rest on theRock of Ages, and to look forward with holy faith to that hour,when the Lord will bring again Zion, and overthrow all theenemies of the church.
