Jeremiah 24:1 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Chapter 24

The Two Baskets of Figs.[a] The Lord showed me two baskets of figs placed before the temple of the Lord. This was after Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon, had exiled from Jerusalem Jeconiah,[b] son of Jehoiakim, king of Judah, and the princes of Judah, the artisans and smiths, and brought them to Babylon.


  1. 24:1–10 For Jeremiah, as for Ezekiel, no good could be expected from the people who had been left in Judah under Zedekiah or who had fled into Egypt; a future might be expected only for those who would pass through the purifying experience of the exile to form the new Israel.
  2. 24:1 Jeconiah: alternative form of Jehoiachin (cf. note on 22:24).
