Some Jews enslaved their own brethren?

Jeremiah Bible Background

Old Testament: Jer 34.8–9

To read the Bible in a year, read Jeremiah 33–35 on November 2, In the year of our Lord Christ 2019

By Don Ruhl

The Lord had to speak to Jeremiah about his brethren enslaving their fellow Jews:

This is the word that came to Jeremiah from the LORD, after King Zedekiah had made a covenant with all the people who were at Jerusalem to proclaim liberty to them: that every man should set free his male and female slave—a Hebrew man or woman—that no one should keep a Jewish brother in bondage.

– Jeremiah 34.8–9

How sad that they had enslaved their own brethren and that the Lord had to have His prophet speak to them.

  • Are you willing to change your life to bring it in harmony with the will of God?
