- Jeremiah makes that age old complaint: Why do the wicked prosper? God’s response is confusing; something about horses, treachery, and abandoning Israel.
- God threatens to displace the nations surrounding Israel in addition to Israel itself and return them all to their own land in time (12:14, 15). I wonder if/when that happened.
- Once again, God shows care for people beyond his chosen Israel, promising to build them up in the midst of Israel if they learn to serve him. Otherwise it’s bye bye (12: 14 – 17).
