Have you noticed how much imagery God uses in this book and to the prophet Jeremiah? The cup of the Lord’s anger is a powerful image. The foreigners will punish the people but then God will have them drink of his anger and he will punish them. God is all powerful. We cannot like that and fight against it but it will be in vain…God is God.
