Christmas Verses – The First Coming #22

Jeremiah 31:15 NIV

“A voice is heard in Ramah,
mourning and great weeping,
Rachel weeping for her children
and refusing to be comforted,
because they are no more.”

After the Wise Men tricked Herod he fulfilled this verse. The boys (children) are referred to as the Innocent and there is a feast day for them.  This verse came in the middle of an encouragement (10 – 17) that was to bring hope to Israel.
