Jeremiah 33:23 – 47:7
Day 57 of the Bible in 90 Days brings us to the fall of Jerusalem. After all of the warnings from God, the people would still not listen. Even after his judgment, God promised to bring Judah and Israel back from captivity. Jeremiah continues to be obedient and speak out for the Lord. His obedience get’s him thrown in jail by king Zedekiah. He prophesies to the king that the city will burn down and be handed over to the Babylonians. Jeremiah was also beaten and thrown into a cistern. Babylon does capture the city and the king attempts to flee along with his officials. They are captured and all killed except Hezekiah, who is carried away into exile. Jerusalem is destroyed.
Scripture Psalms 33: 1-5
3 Perhaps when the people of Judah hear about every disaster I plan to inflict on them, they will each turn from their wicked ways; then I will forgive their wickedness and their sin.”
