jer 7:1

The word that came

The general character of the message in the temple gate is, like the first and second messages, one of rebuke, warning, and exhortation, but this message is addressed more to such in Judah as still maintaining outwardly the worship of Jehovah; it is a message to religious Judah, for example (Jer 7:2); (Jer 7:9); (Jer 7:10); (Jer 9:10); (Jer 9:11).
