Jeremiah 46

Chapter 46

46:1  The word of the LORD which came to Jeremiah the prophet against the Gentiles;


A near and a far fulfilment of these prophecies against Gentile powers are to be distinguished. In Chapter 46, the near vision is of a Babylonian invasion of Egypt, but verses Jeremiah 46:27 Jeremiah 46:28 look forward to the judgment of the nations. (See Scofield "Matthew 25:32") , after Armageddon Revelation 16:14, See Scofield " Revelation 19:17 " and the deliverance of Israel ("Israel," Genesis 12:2 Genesis 12:3 See Scofield " Romans 11:26 "). Jeremiah 50:4-7 also looks forward to the last days.

46:10  For this is the day of the Lord GOD of hosts, a day of vengeance, that he may avenge him of his adversaries: and the sword shall devour, and it shall be satiate and made drunk with their blood: for the Lord GOD of hosts hath a sacrifice in the north country by the river Euphrates.
