In this chapter we have, I. An explication of the
prophecy in the close of the foregoing chapter concerning the fire
in the forest, which the people complained they could not
understand (ver. 1-5),
with directions to the prophet to show himself deeply affected with
it, ver. 6, 7. II. A
further prediction of the sword that was coming upon the land, by
which all should be laid waste; and this expressed very
emphatically, ver. 8-17.
III. A prospect given of the king of Babylon's approach to
Jerusalem, to which he was determined by divination, ver. 18-24. IV. Sentence passed
upon Zedekiah king of Judah, ver.
25-27. V. The destruction of the Ammonites by the sword
foretold, ver. 28-32.
Thus is this chapter all threatenings.
