In the Septuagint, 1 Samuel 2:10 has what seems to be a version of Jeremiah 9:23. Modern translations do not have this. Ideas?

Something many people don't know is Edomites didn't go extinct in the old testament period. They still existed in the Hellenistic period, their name was Idumeans, and they were forced to convert to ...

Is there any basis for thinking there could be a future modern-day application of the prophecy in Jeremiah 9:25-26?

In my view, Jeremiah 9:25-26 does not constitute a dual prophecy specifically pointing to the second coming of Christ. Instead, it is a prophecy that only foretelling the destruction of these nations ...

The cup mentioned in Luke 22:42 is neither the cup of God's wrath nor the cup of redemption. It is the cup of suffering and death. This view is shared by many, probably most, commentaries. Typical of ...

Jeremiah 19:9 - Did God make Israel eat their own children?

Jeremiah 19:9 - Did God make Israel eat their own children?

Taken literally, the text of Jeremiah 19:9 does say that God would cause the people of Judah (not Israel, see 19:3) to engage in cannibalism, thereby making them break God's own law. However, the ...
