In chapter 33, God promises to bring health, healing, and restoration to Israel/ Judah, and raise unto David a righteous branch which once again points to prophecies about Jesus and His coming Kingdom on earth. In chapter 34, the city will fall to Babylon and King Zedekiah will be captured by King Nebuchadnezzar. Then in chapter 35, we are introduced to a people seeking refuge in Jerusalem called the Rechabites. Jeremiah offers them wine, but they refuse to drink because their faither (generations prior) commanded them not to drink. And so, to honor their father, they follow his commands. Jeremiah uses their example of honor and devotion to show Judah and Jerusalem the magnitude of their unfaithfulness towards God.
