ב  הָלוֹךְ אֶל־בֵּית הָרֵכָבִים וְדִבַּרְתָּ אוֹתָם וַהֲבִאוֹתָם בֵּית יְהֹוָה אֶל־אַחַת הַלְּשָׁכוֹת וְהִשְׁקִיתָ אוֹתָם יָיִן׃

35:2   Go to the house of the Rechabites  

Yirmiyahu wishes to demonstrate the meaning of true fidelity and loyalty. He brings the tribe of the Rechabites, descendants of Jethro, into the Beit Hamikdash and offers them wine. They refuse, explaining that they live by a set of laws passed down from generation to generation, including prohibitions against planting vineyards or drinking wine. Their loyal behavior offers a subtle rebuke to the wayward People of Israel.
