“But go now to my place that was in Shiloh, where I caused my name to dwell at first, and see what I did to it because of the wickedness of my people Israel. Bible other translations

But go now to my place that was in Shiloh.” Jeremiah was a descendant of Eli, and it was at Shiloh that Eli so disobeyed God that Eli’s line was somewhat set aside, and eventually the High Priest’s line was switched from Eleazar to Ithamar. Solomon sent Abiathar home to Anathoth, where Jeremiah was from (1 Kings 2:26).
