No family for Jeremiah (Jer 16:2-16:2)

“You shall not take a wife

In this place.

You shall not have sons

In this place.

You shall not have daughters

In this place.”

In another simple statement, Yahweh says that Jeremiah is not to have a family in Judah or Jerusalem. He is not to take a wife or have sons or daughters in this place. His life style would be symbolic of the barren land.
