Jeremiah 25:10 Index
"Moreover I will take from them the voice of mirth, and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom, and the voice of the bride, the sound of the millstones, and the light of the candle."
Jeremiah 25:9 ===== Bibliography ===== Jeremiah 25:11

" . . . the voice of mirth . . . "

  • Not only would these sounds of joy (Jeremiah 7:34) be heard no more, but also "the sound of the millstones," the grinding of corn by women (Exodus 11:5; Matthew 24:41), and "the light of the candle" would cease. The picture presented in (Jeremiah 25:10) is one depicting the complete dissolution of family life, both as to its seasons or rejoicing and as to its daily routine (Revelation 18:22; Revelation 18:23). (4BC 446)
