Jeremiah 25

Now how should I spell all these various names. Nebu whatever his name is the same fellow no matter how his name is spelled. So is Isaac and Yitschaq, but they have varied spellings in the various books. And there are so many names and places, 1000s, which we know nothing of or next to nothing - well, at least they are not the famous repeated names that we recognize. I was tempted to do an automated algorithm, but my data is separated. I did not include vowels in my word table so it would take an algorithm to populate it, and I am not enamored of the idea of programming and designing it at the moment. I might change my mind, for the translating / transcribing task in these person / location lists is none too intriguing. (But the musical setting is interesting...)

This passage is so much our time. So many warnings, so much ignoring, so much clinging to power and wealth, so much hurt (רע). I think we spell that evil (רעע). It  seems that

וָאֲדַבֵּ֧ר אֲלֵיכֶ֛ם אַשְׁכֵּ֥ים וְדַבֵּ֖ר וְלֹ֥א שְׁמַעְתֶּֽם
3 From the thirteenth year of Josiah, Amon's child, king of Judah, and till this day, (this is twenty three years), it happened that Yahweh spoke to me.
And I spoke to you, rising early and speaking, and you did not hear.

וְשָׁלַח֩ יְהוָ֨ה אֲלֵיכֶ֜ם אֶֽת־כָּל־עֲבָדָ֧יו הַנְּבִאִ֛ים הַשְׁכֵּ֥ם וְשָׁלֹ֖חַ וְלֹ֣א שְׁמַעְתֶּ֑ם
וְלֹֽא־הִטִּיתֶ֥ם אֶֽת־אָזְנְכֶ֖ם לִשְׁמֹֽעַ
