Jeremiah 25:8 Meaning and Commentary

Jeremiah 25:8

Therefore thus saith the Lord of hosts
Of armies above and below; and so can do what he pleases in heaven and in earth: because ye have not heard my words;
by the prophets, so as to obey them; they had heard them externally, but did not observe to do them.

Jeremiah 25:8 In-Context

6 Don't follow other gods. Don't serve them or worship them. Don't make the LORD angry with the gods your own hands have made. Then he won't harm you.'
7 " 'But you did not listen to me,' announces the Lord. 'You have made me very angry with the gods your hands have made. And you have brought harm on yourselves.'
8 "The LORD who rules over all says, 'You have not listened to my words.
9 So I will send for all of the nations in the north. And I will send for my servant Nebuchadnezzar, the king of Babylonia,' announces the Lord. " 'I will bring all of them against this land and against you who live here. They will march out against all of the nations that are around this land. I will set them apart in a special way to be destroyed. People will be shocked because of them. And they will make fun of them. Those nations will be destroyed forever.
10 " 'I will put an end to the sounds of joy and gladness. I will put an end to the voices of brides and grooms. The sound of grinding millstones will not be heard anymore. And lamps will not be lit anymore.
