King of Babylon (Jer 25:26-25:26)

“After them,

I went to

The king of Sheshach

To offer him a drink.”

Finally, Jeremiah ends up with the King of Babylon. Here, he is called Sheshach, which is a reverse of the Hebrew letters known as a “atbash”. Jeremiah used this a few times to hide what he was trying to say. After visiting every leader in the world, he ends up with King Nebuchadnezzar.
