Chapter Summary

This chapter shows how intense the book of Jeremiah is shaped. It explores that the role of Jeremiah as intercessors and especially as a petitioner in the complaint and comes to the conclusion that Jeremiah was considered as prophet of prayer, which unique among the prophets of the Old Testament. Balentine depends more on the prayer of the Prophet as to the prayers in Jeremiah. Content of prayers and their position in the book are in close connection or in a reciprocal relationship. The presentation of the comparison of Yahweh with the gods in Jer 10 as a dialogue between Yahweh and a devotee-voice is singular. The main thrust in Jeremiah prayer sounds completely different. A more detailed analysis of the formulations of prayer shows close connections to other Scriptures. The original text of the chapter is in German.
