"Chapter 1 of Jeremiah introduces us to Jeremiah the prophet, who he is and where he came from. His tribe was Benjamin, whom we have seen go on a varied journey throughout Scripture. Back in Judges, we read about how the tribe of Benjamin was nearly destroyed for their great evil, then Israel’s first king came from them, and now, this prophet of God is called forward with a very difficult message. The Hebrew name for Jeremiah is Yirmeyahu or Yirmeyah which literally means ""Yahweh Throws,"" possibly in the sense of laying a foundation.Itcouldessentiallymean,“YahwehEstablishes,Appoints,orSends.” Jeremiah is appointed and sent by God to communicate judgment.
