Jehovah witness dating a non believer
After appealing to Zedekiah he had been moved from the dungeon to the courtyard of the guardhouse connected to the palace (Jer ) where he remained confined until Jerusalem was captured in 587/86 B. KJV For then the king of Babylon's army besieged Jerusalem: and Jeremiah the prophet was shut up in the court of the prison, which was in the king of Judah's house.
ESV At that time the army of the king of Babylon was besieging Jerusalem, and Jeremiah the prophet was shut up in the court of the guard that was in the palace of the king of Judah.
See the translator’s note on Jeremiah 25:1 for the method of dating a king’s reign." (NET Note) Charles Dyer has a detailed note on the dating of this passage - The 10th year of Zedekiah would have ended on October 17, 587 B. (using the Judean Tishri-to-Tishri year) while the 18th year of Nebuchadnezzar began on April 23, 587 (using the Babylonian Nisan-to-Nisan year).
Thus this prophecy occurred sometime between April 23 and October 17, 587 B. During this time Babylon was besieging Jerusalem-a siege that lasted from January 15, 588 till July 18, 586-and Jeremiah was under arrest and confined in the palace courtyard of the guard.
NIV he army of the king of Babylon was then besieging Jerusalem, and Jeremiah the prophet was confined in the courtyard of the guard in the royal palace of Judah.
NLT Jerusalem was then under siege from the Babylonian army, and Jeremiah was imprisoned in the courtyard of the guard in the royal palace.
Stated another way this would be about 587 BC or about one year left in the final siege of Jerusalem.
And so in Jeremiah 32, we see that the events described here actually follow the events in a later chapter, Jeremiah 37.of the word that come to Jeremiah - Beloved, while we cannot receive a word of new revelation from Jehovah as did Jeremiah, we can receive a Word from Jehovah in and through His living and active Word. We must come to the LORD, seeking Him with all our heart in His Word (cp Jer , Mt -note), before His Word comes to us!Draw near to Him today in His Word as you read it prayerfully and expectantly and He will draw near to you (James 4:8-note) and speak to your soul by His Spirit through His Word, the same Word that came to Jeremiah!It is God breathed and profitable and in the context it a Word the Jews needed to hear.The first 29 chapters of Jeremiah were primarily (with a few exceptional passages) judgmental.
