At the conclusion of volume 1, the prophet was depicted as steadfastly clinging to his faith in God in the midst of doubt and despair. In this volume, Davidson examines Jeremiah's uncomfortablerelationship with the political and religious establishments of his day. He guides us through the prophecies given in the last years of Jerusalem,the account of the fall of Jerusalem, the oracles against foreign nations, and a final historical appendix. In discussing Lamentations, Davidson states that in this biblical book are"not only moving and passionate expressions of grief and sorrow, but also of faith...Such faith was only possible for those who took seriously what Jeremiah had all along said about the inevitable working out of God's judgement upon Jerusalem."
