51:19 Not like these in the Portion of Yaakov
For two long chapters, Yirmiyahu describes the utter destruction that will befall the Babylonians. However, it is the future of Israel that ultimately concerns God. The Babylonians put their trust in their idols (verse 17-18) and are let down in the end. Israel’s fate is different because they trust in Hashem. Since Hashem created the world, it is His to distribute as He pleases. He chose to give the Land of Israel to the people of Israle, the “Portion of Yaakov,” as an eternal inheritance that will remain theirs forever.
