He has made me to live in dark places
like those that have been long dead. Bible

“live in dark places like those that have been long dead.” Jeremiah is lamenting about his life. He feels like the situation he has been living in is dark and without the joy and light of life, and so it is like he was dead and in the cold ground. This verse adds to the many that show that when a person dies they are not alive in heaven or “hell,” but are dead in the ground awaiting their resurrection and the Day of Judgment. [For more on dead people being truly dead, see Appendix 4, “The Dead Are Dead”].
