A Message About Kedar and Hazor August 26, 2017

Here are my thoughts on Jeremiah 49:28-33.

Summary: In this passage, God proclaims His comprehensive judgment on Kedar and Hazor.

He will compel Nebuchadnezzar to attack these nomads. Indeed, the Babylonians will:

  • defeat them
  • plunder them
  • ravage their territory.

Thoughts: I am curious as to why God pronounced His judgment on Kedar and Hazor in this passage. Had these nomads attacked Israel and/or Judah? Did they render assistance to Nebuchadnezzar during his invasion of Judah? Was God primarily punishing them for worshiping false gods? Did He intend to send a powerful message to His people that they should not place their trust in any entities other than Himself? Had Israel and/or Judah been tempted to form an alliance with these nomads? How did His people respond to the news that these nomads had been defeated?
