Jeremiah 26:2,15

(12) The Lord sent me to prophesy . . .--The answer of the accused is that of all true prophets and preachers of the word, "The Lord God hath spoken, and he can but prophesy" (Amos 3:8). He must "obey God rather than man" (Acts 5:29). And in this instance the prophet has nothing in the way of credentials but the message itself. He worked no signs or wonders.

Verses 12-15. - Jeremiah's defense. He is conscious that he has not spoken uncommissioned, and leaves the result. He urges the people to amendment of life, while there is time, and warns them that his own unmerited death will bring a curse upon themselves.
