Jeremiah 27:3 Meaning and Commentary

Jeremiah 27:3

And send them to the king of Edom, and to the king of Moab,
and to the king of the Ammonites, and to the king of Tyrus, and to the
king of Zidon
All neighbouring kings and states, to whom the wine cup of God's wrath was to be sent, and they made to drink of it, ( Jeremiah 25:21 Jeremiah 25:22 ) ; and against whom Jeremiah afterwards prophesies: by the hand of the messengers which come to Jerusalem unto Zedekiah
king of Judah;
who were sent by their masters, either to congratulate Zedekiah upon his accession to the throne; or to enter into a league with him against the king of Babylon, and shake off his yoke; or to reside at his court, as ambassadors of nations at peace and in alliance usually do; and it may be for all those purposes. The yokes therefore are ordered to be sent to them, as being the most proper and easy way and method of conveying them, with the meaning of them, to their respective masters.

2 This is what the LORD said to me: “Make a yoke out of straps and crossbars and put it on your neck.
3 Then send word to the kings of Edom, Moab, Ammon, Tyre and Sidon through the envoys who have come to Jerusalem to Zedekiah king of Judah.

5 With my great power and outstretched arm I made the earth and its people and the animals that are on it, and I give it to anyone I please.
