    Jerimiah 12;9

    Jerimiah 12;9
    Mine heritage is unto me as a speckled bird, the birds round about are against her; come ye, assemble all the beasts of the field, come to devour.


    What does this mean ?

    What's the full context?
    Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful. - Albert Schweitzer

    Yeah, I love cast iron cookware.

    Life is too short. Live yours to the fullest.

    It is saying God's peculiar people have become loathsome to Him and he is calling forth those nations round about to come devour the land of Judea and Jerusalem. This is in reference to the Babylonian captivity predicated on a nation who had ceased to serve God in all but lip service.

    That's the short answer.

    Thanks for the info
    Are my kids/grandkids more important than "o"'s kids, to me they are,darn tooting they are!!! They deserve the same armed protection afforded "o"'s kids.
    I have been hoodwinked but not by"o"
    In God we trust,in "o" never trust
    Support those that support the Constitution and the 2nd Amendant

    Boaz, the speckled bird is a bird of prey (an unclean animal), an analogy for the people who rejected God's covenant, Or a hyena (again an unclean animal), which ever symbolism you wish to choose, still the same people having become filthy (unclean and useless)in the eyes of our Father.

    Knowing you, and I say this kindly, I assume you are after a certain point, I'll be patient, knowing you will indeed reveal it in your good time.

    Knowing me, I see this happening around us every day, people praising God with their lips, but not their works, reveling in a form of Godliness without the substance......speckled birds.........hyenas, waiting to devour the innocent. YMMV

    Clawed hit the nail on the head the speckled bird is the people of Israel


    Starting in verse 7
    7“I have abandoned my people, my special possession.
    I have surrendered my dearest ones to their enemies.
    8My chosen people have roared at me like a lion of the forest,
    so I have treated them with contempt.
    9My chosen people act like speckled vultures,a
    but they themselves are surrounded by vultures.
    Bring on the wild animals to pick their corpses clean!
    when the dust settles and the smoke clears all that matters is I hear the words " well done my good and faithfully servant "
