|Overview - Jeremiah 16|
|1||The prophet, under the types of abstaining from marriage, from houses of mourning and feasting, foreshews the utter ruin of the Jews;|
|10||because they were worse than their fathers.|
|14||Their return from captivity shall be stranger than their deliverance out of Egypt.|
|16||God will doubly recompense their idolatry.|
Jeremiah 16:5 (King James Version)
For thus saith the LORD, Enter not into the house of mourning, neither go to lament nor bemoan them: for I have taken away my peace from this people, saith the LORD, even lovingkindness and mercies.
