Go to Bible: Jeremiah 1
 
Jer 1:1

“Anathoth.” It was one of the 48 cities alloted to the Levites in Israel, and was in the territory of the tribe of Benjamin (Josh. 21:18). It is likely that it is modern day Anata, a town 3 miles north of Jerusalem.

Jer 1:11

“an almond tree.” The almond tree was the first tree to bud and bloom in the spring, and so it became symbolic for a watchman. Just as the almond “watched” for spring, i.e., let people know spring was coming, so God would watch over His word to make sure it came to pass.

Jer 1:15

“the north.” God told Jeremiah very early in his ministry that disaster was coming to Judah and Jerusalem from the north, and God said that many times (cp. Jer. 1:14-15; 4:6; 6:1, 22; 10:22; 13:20; 46:20, 24). The immediate enemy from the north turned out to be Babylon, and the result of the Babylonian attack was the destruction of the cities of Judah, the burning of the Temple, and the carrying away of the people of Judah to Babylon in an event known as the Babylonian Captivity. As it turned out, however, in Israel’s history there were other enemies from the north as well.

Jer 1:16

“worshiped.” Or, “bowed down to.” [See commentary on 1 Chron. 29:20].

Jer 1:17

“tuck your cloak under your belt.” The literal Hebrew is “belt up your loins.” This refers to the custom of a man tying up his long clothing so he could move more quickly. In this context it is equivalent to “prepare for battle” or “get ready for work or action.” Jeremiah had tough opposition, so he had to be prepared to do what God asked. See commentary on 2 Kings 4:29.
