Chapter 49: Judgment and Destruction
Jeremiah prophesies destruction for the Ammonites. Edom (whose fall is compared to Sodom and Gomorrah) will fall. The heart of the mighty men of Edom shall be as the heart of a woman in her pangs.
Chapter 50: Babylon shall be destroyed
The Lord is angry with Babylon for their sin; “My people hath been lost sheep: their shepherds have caused them to go astray…” (Jeremiah 50:6) The Lord is upset with the choices his children are making and more upset with the “Pastors” or teachers that are supposed to be showing them the way. Instead “…they have forgotten their resting place.” (Jeremiah 50:6) Because of this Babylon will fall at the hands of a nation from the north; the “…most proud shall stumble and fall…” (Jeremiah 50:32) This will cause Israel to scatter, but be once again restored.
