25  Pour out Your wrath on the nations who have not heeded You, Upon the clans that have not invoked Your name. For they have devoured Yaakov, Have devoured and consumed him, And have laid desolate his homesteads.

 10:25   Pour out Your wrath on the nations who have not heeded You

In chapter 10, Yirmiyahu mocks the futility of idolatry, and describes how the northern country, Babylonia, would turn the land of Yehuda into a desolate place that would be home for jackals. He concludes, however, with a plea for justice. If Israel is to be destroyed, then other nations who engaged in evil and violence should also be punished. Their attacks on Israel were motivated by hatred and vindictiveness, and they too should face Hashem’s anger. This verse is recited on Pesach night during the Seder meal, when Jews remember the deliverance from Egypt and pray for the final redemption.

  • Many communities add to Passover feast, pray for the well being of the righteous. There are many Christians who want to learn their Jewish roots. Many are looking for teachers. Many are righteous as many may not be. Should we not be teaching all. Was not Isreal chosen to be a light to the nations. I am so grateful for Jewish friends that have taught me so much. I apologize to the nation of Isreal for the treatment it has received and still does from Christians. I am one who cannot get enough of the Tanakh and I teach whoever will listen. Help those who seek to know HaShem from you.
