These verses from Jeremiah 20 have been often quoted as a reason for memorizing Scripture:
Jer. 20:9 NLT But if I say I’ll never mention the LORD
or speak in his name,
his word burns in my heart like a fire.
It’s like a fire in my bones!
I am worn out trying to hold it in!
I can’t do it!
Remember the priest Pashur who put Jeremiah in stocks. The Passhur that time was the son of Immer. Today it is evidently a different Passhur who visits Jeremiah, the son of Malchiah.
The ending psalms just keep getting more and more exuberant in praise!
Paul is about to drop a bombshell in chapter 5, and it is good to see the transition from chapter 4.
GNT Translation notes:
Ps. 148:5 Let them all praise [Him//the name of the Lord]! He commanded, and they were created;
11 Let them all praise [Him//the name of the Lord]! His name is greater than all others; his glory is above earth and heaven.
1Cor. 4:17 For this purpose I am sending to you Timothy, who is my own dear and faithful son in the Christian life. He will remind you of the [way of living//principles] which I follow [, and which is appropriate for all of us who are joined in union with Christ Jesus.//in the new life in union with Christ Jesus] [0//which] I teach [these principles] in all the churches everywhere.
