Jeremiah 22

3 It is interesting to see that in the midst of the siege God again rebukes the people for their social injustice and idolatry. God promises that even now if they repent He will not carry out this punishment. However, throughout this entire ordeal neither the king nor the people have shown any signs of confession or repentance.
6 Gilead and Lebanon were fertile lands known especially for fine cedar timber. Even if Judah seemed like a strong forest, God would chop it down and make it virtually lifeless.
9 Sometimes, everyone except the person committing the sin can see sin in his life. Even David had to ask God to reveal the sins he could not see in his own life. We must be diligent to confess and turn away from sin so that our lives can be good examples to the world, not bad ones.
