“Yahweh said to me.
‘Proclaim all these words
In the cities of Judah,
In the streets of Jerusalem.
Hear the words of this covenant!
This is almost a repeat of the first 2 verses of this chapter. Yahweh spoke to Jeremiah directly. Once again, Yahweh wanted Jeremiah to speak to the people in the cities of Judah and the streets of Jerusalem about the words of the covenant. However, here they must not only hear the words of the covenant, but they must also observe or do them.
