The Drought – Jeremiah 14
-The land of Judah has been plagued by a drought (14:1-6), prompting the people to ask God for forgiveness (14:7-9). The Lord refuses, and orders Jeremiah not to pray for them (14:1-12; cf. 7:16-20; 11:14-17). There is no specific episode in 2 Kings that reflects this drought, but it is certainly consistent with what the Lord warned about in Deut. 28:22-24.
