Jeremiah, sometimes called the weeping prophet, was surrounded by a nation ripe for judgment. The apostate nation of Israel had refused repeatedly to heed the warnings of this man of God, like others before him. He foresaw the results of their sin and continuing rebellion against their God. Jeremiah himself was falsely accused of treason and thrown into a muddy dungeon. He also had a scroll of prophecy burnt by the king.
