When did Jeremiah begin to prophesy and in the time of which kings did he prophesy and what was then said to him by the Lord?1.
GOD IS READY TO DO GOOD but hesitant to punish those who deserve punishment. In fact, though he can inflict punishment on those whom he has sentenced without saying anything, without prior warning, he never does. For when he sentences, he says so, and the speaking is a way to turn the person to be condemned away from the sentencing. It is possible to take many examples of these sentences from Scripture, but for now it will suffice2. to mention a few in order to arrive at the vision3. of the passage just read.
(2) The Ninevites had become sinners and were sentenced by God: Still in three days and Ninevah will be overthrown.4. God did not wish to sentence without saying anything,5. but giving them the opportunity for repentance6. and conversion, he sent a Hebrew prophet, so that, when he said, still in three days and Ninevah will be overthrown, those sentenced might not be sentenced, but would obtain the mercy of God by repenting.____________________
