Read Jeremiah 17-20

Jeremiah has nothing good to say to the priest Pashur, will come under reproach and be hauled off to die in Babylon as prophesied in chapter 20. Pashur had Jeremiah beaten for his words from God, perhaps smashing the clay pot in front of this important leader in the nation and telling them they will be broken like the clay pot got him all riled up? Similar to Psalm 79:4 Jeremiah in his stance for God feels the contempt of his people, and they hope for his downfall. BITTER. And Jeremiah will lament, YET HIS CONFIDENCE IS UNSHAKEN, when God called him in Jeremiah 1:8 it was to say exactly what GOD told him to say. AND SO HE STEADFAST AND SAYS IT. ‘But the Lord is with me as a dread warrior; therefore my persecutors will stumble; they will not overcome me. They will be greatly shamed, for they will not succeed. (Jer. 17:18; 23:40)
