Abstract

The function of the tradition of creation in Jeremiah 5; 20-29 Jeremiah 5: 20-29 is analysed synchronically as well as diachronically in an attempt to determine how and with what purpose references to the tradition of creation are made in the pericope. The following conclusions are drawn: that the references to the tradition of creation in Jeremiah 5; 20-29 are made to emphasize the gravity of Israel's sins; and, by combining it with references to the Sinai tradition, to stress the need for repentance
and reversion to God.
