Assyria Falls and Babylonia Emerges

“Already the prophecies about the nations are coming true.  There is foreign unrest everywhere.  Just as Jeremiah was beginning his ministry, Nabopolassar rebelled against Assyria and established the Babylonian Empire.  Now the time has come for the prophecies regarding Nineveh’s fall to be fulfilled. 

The incidental result for Judah is loss of its good king Josiah.  Here now is the record of Josiah’s untimely death and of the brief reign of his son Jehoahaz before being replaced by his brother Eliakim, whom the pharaoh Necho calls Jehoiakim.”

Jeremiah Faces Charges

“Now that Josiah’s good influence is gone and his sons have once again let Judah become corrupt, Jeremiah is in more jeopardy than he might otherwise have been.  He is reminded of this by a confrontation in which he barely escapes with his life.”

Effect of Jeremiah’s Preaching

“It is obvious that Jeremiah is maturing both as a young man and as a prophet of God.  He has been in the crucible of conflict and has emerged victorious.  There will be more opposition and more personal sacrifice, but Jeremiah now has the fortitude to endure.  For now, however, the scene changes to a nation on the brink of a thorough, if brief, spiritual revival.  Perhaps Jeremiah’s preaching has been more effective than he realizes.”

Read:  2 Kings 22:3-20, 2 Chronicles 34:8-33, 2 Kings 23:1-24, 2 Kings 23:28, 2 Chronicles 35:1-19, 2 Chronicles 35:26-27

“Josiah’s reign is truly a high point in the history of Judah, but it will not be enough to atone for three centuries of sinning on the part of Israel.  The apparent lesson is that sin sometimes sets in motion certain consequences which even subsequent good intentions cannot forestall.”
