III. BABYLONIAN EXILIC IDEOLOGY IN THE BOOK OF JEREMIAH To narrow somewhat the search for traces of Babylonian exilic ideology in Jeremiah, I have focused this paper on prophecies of consolation: Jer 3:14–17, 18; 16:14–15; 23:7–8; chapter 24; chapters 30–33; and passages within chapters 50–51. These prophecies have attracted a great deal of scholarly attention. Textual, linguistic, literary, thematic, historical, redactional, and comparative criteria have been employed to distinguish the early prophecies, which are said to be among the earliest in Jeremiah’s career, and which are placed side by side with (later) prophetic passages that resemble Ezekiel, Deutero-Isaiah, even Nehemiah, in style and themes.

32 RHETORIC, IDEOLOGY, STYLISTICS, AND LANGUAGE ideological arguments of continuity and entirety, together with annexation of traditional (and legal) conceptions of possession of the land. Before discussing other prophecies of consolation to the Remnant of Judah, a glance should be given to prophecies of consolation addressing the Babylonian Exiles. 2.

This is another example of the reversal of judgment and consolation. ‫ רחם‬in a positive context occurs in Jer 12:15 as well. 64 65 GROUP IDENTITIES IN JEREMIAH 39 unknown among the prophecies of Jeremiah,68 but is well recognized in Ezekiel (Ezek 36:16–32) and in Deutero-Isaiah (Isa 48:9). It is almost impossible to differentiate early and late themes in this list of characteristics. The decisive argument in favour of a notion of secondary adaptations of Jeremian prophecies by Babylonian Repatriates is this mixture of (at least) two layers within prophetic passages of consolation.
