Jeremiah 15:16 New English Translation (NET Bible)

16 As your words came to me I drank them in,[a]
and they filled my heart with joy and happiness
because I belong to you,[b] O Lord God of Heaven’s Armies.[c]


  1. Jeremiah 15:16 sn Heb “Your words were found, and I ate them.” This along with Ezek 2:8-3:3 is a poetic picture of inspiration. The prophet accepted them, assimilated them, and made them such a part of himself that he spoke with complete assurance what he knew were God’s words.
  2. Jeremiah 15:16 tn Heb “Your name is called upon me.”sn See Jer 14:9, where this idiom is applied to Israel as a whole, and Jer 7:10, where it is applied to the temple. For discussion cf. notes on 7:10.
  3. Jeremiah 15:16 tn HebLord God of Armies.” See the translator’s note at 2:19.
