Jeremiah 25:1

Jeremiah 25:1

The word that came to Jeremiah concerning all the people of
Judah
Not only in the city of Jerusalem, but in the whole land of Judea. This prophecy concerns them all; their repentance and reformation, to which they are exhorted; or their invasion, desolation, and captivity, with which they are threatened. Before the prophet was sent to the king of Judah only, ( Jeremiah 22:1 ) ; now to all the people: in the fourth year of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king of Judah;
in the latter part of the third, and beginning of the fourth year of his reign; see ( Daniel 1:1 ) ; this [was] the first year of Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon:
in which he began to reign with his father, for he reigned two years with him; who is the Nabopolassar of Ptolemy. This was in the year of the world 3397, and before Christ 607, according to Bishop Usher F6.
