The lesson ends with an even more surprising word in verse 7, "seek the welfare of the city where I have sent you into exile, and pray to the LORD on its behalf, for in its welfare you will find your welfare." God's word to the exiles was to seek the welfare of their conquerors; to pray for them for their fates are inextricably bound up together.

Nysse The truncated text of the lectionary selection distorts the message of the Jeremiah 29. The dissonance of the injunctions to build a life in Babylon and to seek its welfare is muted, if not actually removed Politics of Exile—Jeremiah 29:1, 4-7 The Politics of Scripture. Jeremiah's letter is a bold admonishment to remember that we are all, together, members of the political community. Wherever we find ourselves, we must not forget that there is such a thing as the common good
Jeremiah 28. 1 And it came to pass the same year, in the beginning of the reign of Zedekiah king of Judah, in the fourth year, and in the fifth month, that Hananiah the son of Azur the prophet, which was of Gibeon, spake unto me in the house of the LORD, in the presence of the priests and of all the people, saying, 2 Thus speaketh the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, saying, I have broken the. Our gospel this Sunday raises up the ultimate outsider, a Samaritan leper, as hero. No one could be more hated than a Samaritan in Israel, yet Luke demonstrates that only the Samaritan demonstrates gratitude. Earlier in the gospel, only the Samaritan stopped to help the distressed victim. Both in biblical times and in our own time, the Bible points to how much immigrants have to offer.

Recent scholarship has argued that this passage’s focus on building homes and planting vineyards echoes the preoccupations of 1.5 generation. The 1.5 generations are generally considered to be those who emigrated as adolescents or slightly older children of immigrants. Jeremiah’s exhortations seem to be very much aimed at the 1.5 generations as they (and not their parents who make up the leadership) would be getting married and building houses.

Jeremiah was from Anathoth in the tribal lands of Benjamin. Benjamin was the home of the failed monarch Saul, and the town itself bore the name of the Canaanite goddess, Anat. Jeremiah had tried to make it as a prophet but things did not turn out quite as he expected. In chapter 26 he was nearly put to death for his sermon in the temple court. He was slapped in the face and bound into stocks (chapter 20), imprisoned (chapter 37), and thrown in a cistern (chapter 38). In addition, he was apparently illiterate; his messages were preserved by the scribe Baruch who even accompanied him into his eventual exile. (See the story of the production and revision of Jeremiah's scroll in chapter 36; see also chapter 45.) 1 Now these are the words of the letter which Jeremiah the prophet sent from Jerusalem to the rest of the elders of the exile, the priests, the prophets and all the people whom Nebuchadnezzar had taken into exile from Jerusalem to Babylon. 2 (This was after King Jeconiah and the queen mother, the court officials, the princes of Judah and Jerusalem, the craftsmen and the smiths had departed.

When I began this exegesis with the contemporary paraphrase of verses 2-3, I intentionally did not name a specific country as the occupying force, not wishing to name any human community as an enemy.

There are nations and communities that would see others destroyed and would see us destroyed - nationally, politically, religiously, socially, and economically.

Jeremiah was in a position to send this letter because he was left behind in the deportations; the Babylonians did not think he was worth the effort of deporting. When Nebuchadnezzar took Jerusalem, he razed and looted the Temple, took the chief priest hostage and exiled (or killed) everyone else. Verse 1 of our reading says that the surviving elders, priests, and prophets were all in Babylon. The religious establishment was disbanded, traumatized, and in need of a prophetic word themselves. Jeremiah was never a formal part of that establishment. He was an outsider prophet. And now he was in a position to serve God by serving the people who beat, imprisoned, and rejected him.

Jeremiah was not called to serve in the splendor of the temple supported by the coffers of the monarchy although that might have been his preference. (In 5:4-5, Jeremiah dismisses the poor and asks to be sent to the rich!) Jeremiah was called to serve amid the devastation and destruction of everything he knew. And in his moment in the spotlight, when he could have spoken as the second coming of Moses, proclaiming liberation from Babylon and a second Exodus to the Promised Land, Jeremiah had some bad news. The people were not going anywhere. (Jeremiah 29:1, 4-7) In other words, settle in. You are going to be there for a while. So the people do what God commands.

JEREMIAH 7. Jeremiah 7:1-29 JEREMIAH'S TEMPLE SERMON. Are they not rather harming themselves, to their own shame? Jeremiah 7:19. Numerous polls and surveys indicate that for the majority of people, public speaking ranks as our greatest fear, even higher than death Verse 1 gives us a sense of how thorough the devastation of Jerusalem was. Priests, prophets, and elders are included among the recipients of his letter. We also sense that all of them did not survive the hardships of the siege of Jerusalem and the long journey to Babylon. Jeremiah reaches out to a battered and perhaps embittered remnant of the leadership in Babylon.
