Scofield Reference Notes (1917 Edition)Chapter 15
15:6 Thou hast forsaken me, saith the LORD, thou art gone backward: therefore will I stretch out my hand against thee, and destroy thee; I am weary with repenting.
15:11 The LORD said, Verily it shall be well with thy remnant; verily I will cause the enemy to entreat thee well in the time of evil and in the time of affliction.
(See Scofield "Zechariah 8:14")
15:21 And I will deliver thee out of the hand of the wicked, and I will redeem thee out of the hand of the terrible.
the Lord said
The Remnant, of whom Jeremiah was the representative, are carefully distinguished from the unbelieving mass of the people. The coming captivity, which they must share, for they too have sinned Jeremiah 15:13 though Jehovah's judgment upon the nation, will be but a purifying chastisement to them, and they receive a special promise Jeremiah 15:11. Verses Jeremiah 15:15-18 give the answer of the Remnant to verses Jeremiah 15:11-14. Two things characterize the believing Remnant always-loyal to the word of God, and separation from those who mock at that word Jeremiah 15:16,17 Cf. Revelation 3:8-10.
