The proclamation of liberty in Jerusalem (Jer 34:8-34:8)

“The word

Came to Jeremiah

From Yahweh.

This is after King Zedekiah

Had made a covenant

With all the people

In Jerusalem

To make

A proclamation of liberty

To them.”

Once again, we have an oracle of Yahweh to Jeremiah. However, this takes place after King Zedekiah has made a covenant with the people of Jerusalem that there should be a proclamation of liberty for all the Jewish slaves.
