Hardback
Jeremiah, long considered one of the most colourful of the ancient Israelite prophets, comes to life in this translation of chapters 37-52 of the Book of Jeremiah, which also comes with a full exegesis.

- Publisher Stirring words of the most outspoken of the Hebrew prophets are reexamined in this concluding volume of the esteemed "Anchor Bible Commentary" on "Jeremiah".This final book of the three-volume "Anchor Bible Commentary" gives us translation and commentary on the concluding sixteen chapters of "Jeremiah". Here, during Judah's darkest days, when nationhood came to an end, Jeremiah with his people confronted the consequences of the nation's sin, while at the same time reconstituting a remnant community with hopes to give Israel a future. Jeremiah preached that Israel's God, Yahweh, was calling to account every nation on the Earth, even the nation chosen as his own.For the latter, Jeremiah was cast into a pit and left to die, only to be rescued by an Ethiopian eunuch. But the large collection of Foreign Nation Oracles in the book shows that other nations too were made to drink the cup of divine wrath, swollen as they were by wickedness, arrogant pride, and trust in their own gods. Yet the prophet who thundered Yahweh's judgment was also the one who gave Israel's remnant a hope for the future, expressed climactically in a new and eternal covenant for future days. Here too is the only report in the Bible of an accredited scribe writing up a scroll of oracles for public reading at the Temple.This magisterial work of scholarship is sure to be essential to any biblical studies curriculum. "Jeremiah 37-52" draws on the best biblical scholarship to further our understanding of this preeminent prophet and his message to the world.
