2:1 Moreover the word of the LORD came to me, saying,
word of the Lord
The general character of the first message from Jehovah to Judah by Jeremiah is threefold:
(1) He reminds Israel of the days of blessing and deliverance, e.g. Jeremiah 2:1-7 .
(2) He reproaches them with forsaking Him, e.g. Jeremiah 2:13 .
All these messages are to be thought of as inspired sermons, spoken to the people and subsequently written. Cf. Jeremiah 36:1-32 .
