The Letter of Jerimiah

A letter ascribed to Jeremiah that condemns idolatry.

Roman Catholic Bibles include the Letter of Jeremiah as the sixth chapter of the book of Baruch, but Protestant Bibles often print it as a separate book of the Apocrypha. The letter is ascribed to the prophet Jeremiah and addressed to the Jews who are about to be taken into exile. The letter urges the people not to succumb to idolatry in Babylon, and it denounces idols as useless objects made by human hands, which cannot provide help to those who worship them.
