Jeremiah

Details, Please

Called to the ministry as a boy (1:6), Jeremiah prophesies bad news to Judah: “Lo, I will bring a nation upon you from far, O house of Israel, saith the Lord” (5:15).  Jeremiah is mocked for his prophecies, occasionally beaten, and imprisoned in a muddy well (chapter 38).  But his words come true with the Babylonian invasion of chapter 52.
