Jeremiah 39

Chapter 39

39:1  In the ninth year of Zedekiah king of Judah, in the tenth month, came Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon and all his army against Jerusalem, and they besieged it.

tenth month

i.e. January.

39:2  And in the eleventh year of Zedekiah, in the fourth month, the ninth day of the month, the city was broken up.

fourth month

i.e. July.

39:7  Moreover he put out Zedekiah's eyes, and bound him with chains, to carry him to Babylon.


Here began the "times of the Gentiles," the mark of which is that Jerusalem is "trodden down of the Gentiles," i.e. under Gentile overlordship. This has been true from the time of Nebuchadnezzar to this day. See "Times of the Gentiles" (See Scofield "Luke 21:24") . See Scofield " Revelation 16:19 ".

39:18  For I will surely deliver thee, and thou shalt not fall by the sword, but thy life shall be for a prey unto thee: because thou hast put thy trust in me, saith the LORD.


(See Scofield "Psalms 2:12") .
