The message of the powerful God to Jeremiah (Jer 27:4-27:5)

“Give them this charge

For their masters.

Thus says Yahweh of hosts!

The God of Israel!

This is what you shall say

To your masters.

‘It is I,

Who by my great power,

With my outstretched arm,

Have made the earth,

With the people,

With the animals

That are on the earth.

I give it to

Whomever I please.”

Yahweh explained his power to Jeremiah, who was then to tell these various envoys when they returned to their leaders. Yahweh, the God of Israel, has great power with his outstretched arm. He has made the earth with all the people and animals that are on this earth. Thus he can do whatever he wants to do, since he is all powerful.
