When Yirmiyahu was still a young boy living in Anatot, Hashem came to him and said that even before he was born, Hashem had chosen him, consecrated him to be the prophet of the nation of Israel בְּטֶ֨רֶם אצורך [אֶצָּרְךָ֤] בַבֶּ֙טֶן֙ יְדַעְתִּ֔יךָ. However, Yirmiyahu responds he cannot speak. Hashem attempts to comfort him by saying he will help him speak, protect him, and put His 'hand' on his mouth, as a symbol.
רְאֵ֞ה הִפְקַדְתִּ֣יךָ ׀ הַיּ֣וֹם הַזֶּ֗ה עַל־הַגּוֹיִם֙ וְעַל־הַמַּמְלָכ֔וֹת לִנְת֥וֹשׁ וְלִנְת֖וֹץ וּלְהַאֲבִ֣יד וְלַהֲר֑וֹס לִבְנ֖וֹת וְלִנְטֽוֹעַ׃ Hashem says that Yirmiyahu's job will be to destroy and then rebuild the nation. Then, He gives Yirmiyahu 2 messages. One is of an almond tree, to symbolize something coming fast, and the other a steaming pot tipped to the north, to represent something really bad coming from the north, to overcome the nation.
Hashem says that when the nation was in the desert the followed him with loyalty like man and wife, they were the fruits of His harvest,. However, now the nation is like a prostitute, they abandoned Hashem for gods of wood and stone. כִּֽי־שְׁתַּ֥יִם רָע֖וֹת עָשָׂ֣ה עַמִּ֑י אֹתִ֨י עָזְב֜וּ מְק֣וֹר ׀ מַ֣יִם חַיִּ֗ים לַחְצֹ֤ב לָהֶם֙ בֹּאר֔וֹת בֹּארֹת֙ נִשְׁבָּרִ֔ים אֲשֶׁ֥ר לֹא־יָכִ֖לוּ הַמָּֽיִם׃
לא יאמרו עוד ארון ברית ה
Bnie Yisroel try to deflect the blame and guilt for the sins they have committed. But Hashem just says that they have sold themselves to the Assyrians or the Egyptians, which will only bring them more shame.
The People of Rebel Israel were whoring with other nations and their gods, so, in ager, Hashem exiled them. However, even worse, Faithless Judah saw what had happened and continued to whore, they did not learn from their sins. וָאֵ֗רֶא כִּ֤י עַל־כָּל־אֹדוֹת֙ אֲשֶׁ֤ר נִֽאֲפָה֙ מְשֻׁבָ֣ה יִשְׂרָאֵ֔ל שִׁלַּחְתִּ֕יהָ וָאֶתֵּ֛ן אֶת־סֵ֥פֶר כְּרִיתֻתֶ֖יהָ אֵלֶ֑יהָ וְלֹ֨א יָֽרְאָ֜ה בֹּֽגֵדָ֤ה יְהוּדָה֙ אֲחוֹתָ֔הּ וַתֵּ֖לֶךְ וַתִּ֥זֶן גַּם־הִֽיא׃
Yirmiyahu tries to reunite Budha and Israel. this is on order to reach hashes ultimate goal of remembering their history, ti move towards retuning and rebuilding their relationship with Hashem and each other through yeshiva. To do this. Yirmiyahu does not mention the Art, a symbol of strength for Judah, but embarrassment of Israel. נִשְׁכְּבָ֣ה בְּבָשְׁתֵּ֗נוּ וּֽתְכַסֵּנוּ֮ כְּלִמָּתֵנוּ֒ כִּי֩ לַיהוָ֨ה אֱלֹהֵ֜ינוּ חָטָ֗אנוּ אֲנַ֙חְנוּ֙ וַאֲבוֹתֵ֔ינוּ מִנְּעוּרֵ֖ינוּ וְעַד־הַיּ֣וֹם הַזֶּ֑ וְלֹ֣א שָׁמַ֔עְנוּ בְּק֖וֹל יְהֹוָ֥ה אֱלֹהֵֽינוּ׃
