What did Jeremiah wear as a symbol or "sign" and what happened to it after he took it from the place where he had hid it?
It was a linen belt or maybe a loincloth that Jeremiah was supposed to wear for a time and then hide in the cleft of a rock. When he went back to retrieve it, it was ruined by the weather and the rocks. This was to symbolize Judah's worthlessness and they would be delivered to their enemies.
TODAY'S QUIZ: Why was Jeremiah commanded by God not to marry or have children?
