Jeremiah 45:5 New English Translation (NET Bible)

Are you looking for great things for yourself? Do not look for such things. For I, the Lord, affirm[a] that I am about to bring disaster on all humanity.[b] But I will allow you to escape with your life[c] wherever you go.”’”


  1. Jeremiah 45:5 tn Heb “oracle of the Lord.”
  2. Jeremiah 45:5 sn Cf. Jer 25:31, 33. The reference here to universal judgment also forms a nice transition to the judgments on the nations that follow in Jer 46-51. This may be another reason for the placement of this chapter here, out of its normal chronological order (see also the study note on v. 1).
  3. Jeremiah 45:5 tn Heb “I will give you your life for a spoil.” For this idiom see the translator’s note on 21:9 and compare the usage in 21:9; 38:2; 39:18.
