MORNING WATCH NOTES:
These two verses are a reminder to me that prophecy is real. Here Jeremiah predicts the fall of Judah. King Jehoiachin along with his widowed Queen mother, Nehushta, would be captured and sent into exile. Jeremiah exhorts them to humble themselves for their capture an exile were eminent (Jer 29:2; 2Ki 24: 1–15).
Nebuchadnezzar would capture the surrounding towns of Jerusalem. He would cut off any retreat of those fleeing Jerusalem from the invading army. The fall of Jerusalem came in 587 BC. What God says, he will do! Lord, I put my whole trust in the counsel of your Word.
