A calamity looms from the north, a great disaster

A continuation of the commentary on Jeremiah The fifth chapter of Jeremiah concluded with God posing the somewhat unsettling question: “But what will you do when the end comes”?  The sixth chapter opens with the answer: “Take shelter, O sons of Benjamin, away from Jerusalem.
