The elimination of the false idol gods (Jer 10:11-10:11)

“Thus shall you say to them.

 ‘The gods who did not make the heavens,

 The gods who did not make the earth,

  Shall perish

  From the earth,

  From under the heavens.’”

This is a unique Aramaic passage among the rest of the Hebrew texts of Jeremiah. Yahweh tells Jeremiah to let the people know that the gods who did not make the heavens and earth, like he did in Genesis, will perish from this earth that is under the heavens.
