3 The Lord of Heaven’s Armies, the God of Israel,[a] says: Change the way you have been living and do what is right.[b] If you do, I will allow you to continue to live in this land.[c]
Jeremiah 7:3tnHeb “Yahweh of Armies, the God of Israel.” sn Compare the use of similar titles in 2:19; 5:14; 6:6 and see the explanation in the study note at 2:19. In this instance the title appears to emphasize the Lord as the heavenly King who drags his disobedient vassals into court (and threatens them with judgment).
Jeremiah 7:3tn Or “Make good your ways and your actions.” J. Bright’s translation (“Reform the whole pattern of your conduct”; Jeremiah [AB], 52) is excellent.
Jeremiah 7:3tnHeb “place.” But this might be misunderstood to refer to the temple.
