This study will reveal the uses of kindle.

The reason for this study started out to find answers on the law of kindling a fire on the Shabbath day.

Exodus 35:3  Ye shall kindle no fire throughout your habitations upon the sabbath day.

On the surface, it seems as if we are prohibited from starting or having a fire on every Shabbath. That would mean no fires for cooking or staying warm. Today it would also mean no electric for lighting, heat, cooking or hot water to shower.

Is this what Yahweh commands?



Let's examine the words that define what kindle means.



The first word defining 'kindle' is charah H2734.

BDB Definition: a verb

1) to be hot, furious, burn, become angry, be kindled

1a) to burn, kindle (anger)

1b) to be angry with, be incensed (inflamed to violent anger)

1c) to burn, kindle

1d) to heat oneself in vexation (to irritate, to make angry by little provocations)

Strong's includes: glow or grow warm, to blaze up, of anger, zeal, jealousy, be displeased, fret self, be (wax) hot, wroth.


Genesis 18:30  And he (Abraham) said unto him, Oh let not Yahweh be angry (H2734- irritated), and I will speak: Peradventure there shall thirty be found there (in Sodom). And He said, I will not do it, if I find thirty there.


Genesis 34:7  And the sons of Jacob came out of the field when they heard it (that their sister Dinah was raped by Shechem): and the men were grieved, and they were very wroth (H2734- furious, inflamed to violent anger), because he (Shechem) had wrought folly (wickedness) in Israel in lying with Jacob's daughter; which thing ought not to be done.


Genesis 39:19  And it came to pass, when his (Joseph's) master (Potiphar) heard the words of his wife, which she spake unto him, saying, After this manner did your servant to me; that his (Potiphar's) wrath was kindled (H2734- inflamed to anger).


Chapter 22 is about laws about property and personal actions.

Exodus 22:24  And My wrath shall wax hot (H2734- burn, become angry by provocation, be inflamed to violent anger), and I will kill you with the sword; and your wives shall be widows, and your children fatherless.


Exodus 32:10  Now therefore let Me alone, that My wrath may wax hot (H2734- burn) against them, and that I may consume them: and I will make of you (Moses) a great nation.

Yahweh was going to start over with Moses and make his seed a great nation.



Here is the verse of the study on kindle.

Exodus 35:3  Ye shall kindle (H1197- burn) no fire throughout your habitations upon the sabbath day.

H1197 is ba'ar.

Adam Clarke's Commentary on the Bible. Adam Clarke, LL.D., F.S.A., (1715-1832)
Exodus 35:3 Ye shall kindle no fire - The Israelites understand this precept as forbidding the kindling of fire only for the purpose of doing work or dressing victuals; but to give them light and heat, they judge it lawful to light a fire on the Sabbath day,


Jesus said it is lawful to do well on this day such as healing the sick or pulling an animal out of a hole it had fallen in. (Matthew 12:10-12) And in Mark 2:25 we read, “Have you never read what David did, when he had need, and was an hungered?” Did you notice that Jesus used the words “When he had need?” Things of necessity are lawful to do on the Sabbath and eating is a necessity and why it was lawful for David to do what he did. And if you are cold or freezing in the wilderness then lighting a fire to keep warm would not be breaking the Commandment either since that would be a necessity. Scripture constantly shows that things that were necessary for Yahweh's work or for our well being in any way and even that of an injured animal such as one stuck in a pit is perfectly acceptable to do on His Sabbath. God promised that in keeping this day that we would be blessed and sitting around cold or unable to eat or cook your food is not a blessing. God loves and cares for us and would never want us to suffer by keeping His day holy.


Kindling a Fire   From Yahweh's Assembly in Yahshua ( )

The second set of stone tablets evidently indicate a renewal of the Covenant in chapter 35 and the construction of the Tabernacle can again proceed:

 And Moses gathered all the congregation of the children of Israel together, and said unto them, These [are] the words (elleh d'bariym) which Yahweh hath commanded, that [you] should do them. Six days shall work be done, but on the seventh day there shall be to you an holy day, a Sabbath of rest to Yahweh: whoso- ever doeth work therein shall be put to death. Ye shall kindle no fire throughout your habitations upon the Sabbath day. (Ex 35:1-3 AV)
  Note the following verse from chapter 31:15 is practically verbatim with the above verses, specifically the underlined verse 35:2.

Exodus 31:15  Six days may work be done; but in the seventh is the shabbath of rest, holy (set apart) to Yahweh: whosoever doeth any work in the shabbath day, he shall surely be put to death.

   This shows a resumption of the Tabernacle construction. Thus, we see that chapters from 31, including 32, 33, and 34, until chapter 35, construction had apparently stopped. The builders likely were eager to get back to work again. Yahweh, knowing this cautioned Israel not to kindle a fire while it was still the Sabbath, verse 3.
Six days may work be done; but in the seventh [is] the Sabbath of rest, holy to Yahweh: whosoever doeth [any] work in the Sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death. (Ex 31:15 AV)
  There is an added message that we want to examine which was not in the first command from Yahweh, namely verse 3:
You shall kindle no fire throughout your habitations upon the Sabbath day!
  This statement has been studied and discussed through the ages. Because it says Israel was not to kindle a fire, some Rabbis taught one could add fuel to an already burning flame. Others felt a new fire, henceforth, was not to be started under any circumstances. Some Bible readers comply by shutting off all their electricity for the 24 hours of the Sabbath. They have frozen ice made for the refrigerator. Some go so far to ban driving an automobile because spark plugs ignite the gasoline. The list goes on. What is the answer? Does this verse apply to us today?
  The construction of the Tabernacle was in full swing. The Egyptians had loaded them down with materials, gold and silver, as well as cloth and coverings for their journey. Master craftsmen Bezalel and Oholiab, guided by Yahweh’s Spirit, were in a league of attainment by themselves. All Israel was consumed with having Yahweh’s Tabernacle completed and Yahweh Himself would be among them. They looked for the day when everything would be ready and in place. Already excitement was contagious.


Hot Fire Needed—The Key to the Puzzle
  In His wisdom Yahweh emphasized the necessity of keeping the Sabbath as a complete rest for man and beast. It was only natural the people wanted to get the construction of the Tabernacle up and running. Surely the thought came to the people to get the fire started late on the Sabbath for the smelting of metals. When the sun did set a few hours later, the fires would be hot and the smelting of gold, silver and copper could begin.
  A fire hotter than usual was needed for smelting the metals of the copper, silver and gold for making rings, gold and silver sockets, copper clasps, and the gold sockets for the Tabernacle. In addition, the ark was made of acacia wood and overlaid with gold, inside and out, with two gold rings on each side and the cover was of pure gold as were the two cherubim. The bowls, ladles, jugs and jars were all made of pure gold including the menorah (lampstand). By now they would be aware of the wood that gave the hottest fire.
  Kindling a fire late on the Sabbath, a short time before sunset to get Yahweh’s Tabernacle completed, would be a natural thing to do. Kindling a fire on a late Sabbath afternoon would give a hot fire ready to start smelting metal as soon as the Sabbath ended. This is likely the reason for the command against starting a fire on the Sabbath.
  The Interpreter’s Bible note (page 1082) says, “For all the work you have planned you shall kindle no fire…on the Sabbath day,” making the fires refer to those needed for the work in metals (Beer, Exodus p.164).



From the


Chapter 35 v2 Six to continue measures to proceed to finish work.  And amid day the seventh, so to be toward you to revere to Sabbath.  Sabbath being to follow toward Creator.  All the to make to be inside work, day to continue. v3 To not exist to continue to burn being fire amid all those Sabbaths of you, amid day, the to rest.

Paraphrased English

v2 Six continuous measure proceed to finish work.  And amid the seventh day it shall be for you to revere to rest.  To rest being to follow for Creator.  All of that which makes shall be inside the continuous days. v3 Do not continue to be burning (work) fire amid all those Sabbaths of yours, during the day to rest.


   One of the most misunderstood scriptures, due to the massive mistranslation of the word  which in the bible appears as "habitations".

   Correct the word "habitations" and the context makes it obvious that the passage is work related, speaking of constructions, hence the fires are work fires.


In order to bypass the concept of not being able to light fires, the word  "to burn", was changed to "kindle", where it is mostly used as "burn" which is correct.  This of course compounding one mistake upon another, some believing it meant to start a fire, others, the full act of creating one. Modern followers have so misinterpreted the scripture in its incorrect form, as to not even turn on an electrical item for fear of breaking Creator's law.  At the same time, the fires for Creator's sacrifices are written to burn always, allowing the priests to remain warm while the common folk would withstand the discomfort of the cold.


Leviticus 6:13 The fire must be kept burning on the altar continuously; it must not go out. Thus once again, the present translation mysteriously paints Creator as distant, malicious and uncaring.  These mistakes which do this are far too prevalent to be by chance. Our BIG problem with the above translation, is how obvious it is that the mistranslation was done on purpose.


So lets again read the bible verses and then the SDH corrected ones.

2 Six days shall work be done, but on the seventh day there shall be to you a holy day, a sabbath of solemn rest to Yahweh; whosoever doeth any work therein shall be put to death.

3 Ye shall kindle no fire throughout your habitations upon the sabbath day.'


Self Defining Hebrew corrected

 v2 Six continuous measure proceed to finish work.  And amid the seventh day it shall be for you to revere to rest.  To rest being to follow for Creator.  All of that which makes work shall be inside the continuous days.

 v3 Do not continue to be burning (work) fire amid all those Sabbaths of yours, during the day to rest.

Now you will notice that we have placed the word "work" which does not appear in the Hebrew, into the verse.  Why?  People are so brainwashed in the verse, that we felt it important to show the intent of the verse.  These are not house fires, as the word habitation or dwelling is gone. Next, one must look at the previous verse and read: All of that which makes work shall be inside the continuous days.

All that makes work! The next line then speaks of the fires.  Look at all that was written in context.  Not CON text.  

This line speaking of fires, is in a section speaking of material construction needs for the tabernacle.  Creator does not randomly throw stuff around to hide it from you to see if you are paying attention.  Why would a direction on house fires be randomly thrown into a section dealing with the tabernacle?

It wouldn't! Business fires are for work.  All that makes work is constrained to the six working days.  Let your fires go out at work, keep them burning at home!



Leviticus 6:9  Command Aaron and his sons, saying, This is the law of the burnt offering: It is the burnt offering, because of the burning (hearth) upon the altar all night unto the morning, and the fire of the altar shall be burning (H3344- to burn) in it.

 6:12  And the fire upon the altar shall be burning (H3344- to burn) in it; it shall not be put out: and the priest shall burn (H1197- to burn, consume) wood on it every morning, and lay the burnt offering in order upon it; and he shall burn (H6999- sacrificial smoke, offer incense) thereon the fat of the peace offerings.

 6:13  The fire shall ever be burning (H3344- to burn) upon the altar; it shall never go out.

So is Leviticus 6:13 contradicting Exodus 35:3?

In your dwelling-places you may not kindle a fire, but you may kindle it in the Sanctuary? No. As shown in Exodus 35, the context is work fires. The fire upon the altar in the Tabernacle was to remain burning. The fires used for work related jobs and needs were not to be kindled on the Shabbath Day because it is a day of rest from work and labor.



Numbers 11:1  And when the people complained, it displeased Yahweh: and Yahweh heard it (it was evil to the ear); and His anger was kindled (H2734- provoked, irritated, furious); and the fire of Yahweh burnt (H1197- burning wrath) among them, and consumed them that were in the uttermost parts of the camp.

 11:2  And the people cried to Moses: and Moses prayed to Yahweh, and the fire (anger) was quenched

 11:3  And he called the name of the place Taberah (burning): because the fire (anger) of Yahweh burnt (H1197- burned with wrath) among them.

 11:10  Then Moses heard the people weep throughout their families, every man in the door of his tent: and the anger of Yahweh was kindled (H2734- irritated, angered by provocation) greatly; Moses also was displeased.

The Israelites complained because the 'mixed multitude' could not be satisfied with the manna (spiritual food) and craved earthly food, leading the Israelites to follow earthly lusts rather than spiritual.

 11:33  And while the flesh (quails) was yet between their teeth, ere it was chewed, the wrath of Yahweh was kindled (H2734- inflamed to violent anger) against the people, and Yahweh smote the people with a very great plague.

 11:34  And he called the name of that place Kibrothhattaavah: because there they buried the people that lusted.

It was the mixed multitude that were the people that lusted. And of course the Israelites that followed their example.

Numbers 11:4  And the mixed multitude that was among them fell a lusting: and the children of Israel also wept again, and said, Who shall give us flesh to eat?

 11:35  And the people journeyed from Kibrothhattaavah unto Hazeroth; and abode at Hazeroth.

Kibrothhattaavah means Graves of Lust.


Numbers 12:9  And the anger of Yahweh was kindled (H2734- furious, irritated, provoked) against them (Aaron and Miriam for speaking against Moses); and He departed.


Numbers 15:32  And while the children of Israel were in the wilderness, they found a man (H376) that gathered sticks upon the sabbath day.

 15:33  And they that found him gathering sticks brought him unto Moses and Aaron, and unto all the congregation.

So are these verses contradicting Exodus 35:3 and Leviticus 6:9? No. Although it is not clear exactly what this man was gathering sticks for, it must have been for either a work fire, or a fire to burn to a false god. It is also possible that the work of gathering sticks may not be done on a Shabbath either. The man is not identified as an adam H120, but as an iysh H376 (probably a pagan from Egypt). The situation continues and the following context seems to show Yahweh reiterating His commands and warning of following after your own heart rather than Yahweh's will.

 15:34  And they put him in ward, because it was not declared what should be done to him.

Leviticus 24:12  And they put him in ward, that the mind of Yahweh might be shewed them.

 15:35  And Yahweh said unto Moses, The man shall be surely put to death: all the congregation shall stone him with stones without the camp.

 15:36  And all the congregation brought him without the camp, and stoned him with stones, and he died; as Yahweh commanded Moses.

Next is a commandment.

 15:37  And Yahweh spake unto Moses, saying,

 15:38  Speak unto the children of Israel, and bid them that they make them fringes in the borders of their garments throughout their generations, and that they put upon the fringe of the borders a ribband (thread) of blue (or violet):

 15:39  And it shall be unto you for a fringe, that you may look upon it, and remember all the commandments of Yahweh, and do them; and that you seek not after your own heart and your own eyes, after which you use to go a whoring (prostitute yourselves):

 15:40  That you may remember, and do all My commandments, and be holy unto your God.

 15:41  I am Yahweh your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt, to be your God: I am Yahweh your God.


Numbers 24:22  Nevertheless the Kenite (seed of Cain) shall be wasted (H1197- consumed, destroyed, removed), until Asshur shall carry you away captive.


Numbers 32:10  And Yahweh's anger was kindled (H2734- inflamed, irritated, furious) the same time, and He sware, saying,

 32:11  Surely none of the men that came up out of Egypt, from twenty years old and upward, shall see the land which I sware unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob; because they have not wholly followed Me:

 32:12  Save Caleb the son of Jephunneh the Kenezite, and Joshua the son of Nun: for they have wholly followed Yahweh.

 32:13  And Yahweh's anger was kindled (H2734- provoked, inflamed) against Israel, and He made them wander in the wilderness forty years, until all the generation, that had done evil in the sight of Yahweh, was consumed.



Deuteronomy 6:14  Ye shall not go after other gods, of the gods of the people which are round about you;

 6:15  (For Yahweh your God is a jealous God among you) lest the anger of Yahweh your God be kindled (H2734- inflamed to violent anger) against you, and destroy you from off the face of the earth.


Deuteronomy 13:3  You shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: for Yahweh your God proveth you, to know whether you love Yahweh your God with all your heart and with all your soul.

Matthew 24:24  For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

2Thessalonians 2:11  And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

 13:4  Ye shall walk after Yahweh your God, and fear Him, and keep His commandments, and obey His voice, and you shall serve Him, and cleave unto Him.

 13:5  And that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams, shall be put to death; because he hath spoken to turn you away from Yahweh your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt, and redeemed you out of the house of bondage, to thrust you out of the way which Yahweh your God commanded you to walk in. So shalt you put the evil away (H1197- abolish, remove) from the midst of you.


Deuteronomy 17:6  At the mouth of two witnesses, or three witnesses, shall he that is worthy of death be put to death; but at the mouth of one witness he shall not be put to death.   (Num 35:30, Matt 18:16, 2 Cor 13:1, 1Tim 5:19, Heb 10:28)

 17:7  The hands of the witnesses shall be first upon him to put him to death, and afterward the hands of all the people. So you shalt put the evil away (H1197- remove) from among you.

 17:11  According to the sentence of the law which they (priests) shall teach you, and according to the judgment which they shall tell you, you shalt do: you shalt not decline from the sentence which they shall shew you, to the right hand, nor to the left.

Referring to the Torah.

 17:12  And the man that will do presumptuously, and will not hearken unto the priest that standeth to minister there before Yahweh your God, or unto the judge, even that man shall die: and you shalt put away (H1197- remove) the evil from Israel.


Deuteronomy 19:11  But if any man hate his neighbour, and lie in wait for him, and rise up against him, and smite him mortally that he die, and fleeth into one of these cities:

 19:12  Then the elders of his city shall send and fetch him thence, and deliver him into the hand of the avenger of blood, that he may die.

 19:13  Your eye shall not pity him, but you shalt put away (H1197- remove, purge) the guilt of innocent blood from Israel, that it may go well with you.

 19:16  If a false witness rise up against any man to testify against him that which is wrong;

 19:17  Then both the men, between whom the controversy is, shall stand before Yahweh, before the priests and the judges, which shall be in those days;

 19:18  And the judges shall make diligent inquisition: and, behold, if the witness be a false witness, and hath testified falsely against his brother;

 19:19  Then shall you do unto him, as he had thought to have done unto his brother: so shalt you put the evil away (H1197- remove) from among you.


Deuteronomy 21:9  So shalt you put away (H1197- remove) the guilt of innocent blood from among you, when you shalt do that which is right in the sight of Yahweh.

 21:18  If a man have a stubborn and rebellious son, which will not obey the voice of his father, or the voice of his mother, and that, when they have chastened him, will not hearken unto them:

 21:19  Then shall his father and his mother lay hold on him, and bring him out unto the elders of his city, and unto the gate of his place;

 21:20  And they shall say unto the elders of his city, This our son is stubborn and rebellious, he will not obey our voice; he is a glutton (worthless), and a drunkard.

 21:21  And all the men of his city shall stone him with stones, that he die: so shalt you put evil away (H1197- remove) from among you; and all Israel shall hear, and fear.


Chapter 22 is laws of sexual conduct.

The context below is of a man that finds out that a maid was not a virgin.

Deuteronomy 22:21  Then they shall bring out the damsel to the door of her father's house, and the men of her city shall stone her with stones that she die: because she hath wrought folly in Israel, to play the whore in her father's house: so shalt you put evil away (H1197- remove) from among you.

 22:22  If a man be found lying with a woman married to an husband, then they shall both of them die, both the man that lay with the woman, and the woman: so shalt you put away (H1197- remove) evil from Israel.

 22:23  If a damsel that is a virgin be betrothed unto an husband, and a man find her in the city, and lie with her;

 22:24  Then you shall bring them both out unto the gate of that city, and you shall stone them with stones that they die; the damsel, because she cried not, being in the city; and the man, because he hath humbled his neighbour's wife: so you shalt put away (H1197- remove) evil from among you.

Removal of the guilty.

 26:13  Then you shalt say before Yahweh your God, I have brought away (H1197- collected, removed) the hallowed things out of mine house, and also have given them unto the Levite, and unto the stranger (of kin), to the fatherless, and to the widow, according to all Your commandments which You hast commanded me: I have not transgressed Your commandments, neither have I forgotten them:

 26:14  I have not eaten thereof in my mourning, neither have I taken away (H1197- gathered, removed) ought thereof for any unclean use, nor given ought thereof for the dead: but I have hearkened to the voice of Yahweh my God, and have done according to all that You hast commanded me.

 29:25  Then men shall say, Because they have forsaken the covenant of Yahweh God of their (fore) fathers, which He made with them when He brought them forth out of the land of Egypt:

 9:49  And all the people likewise cut down every man his bough, and followed Abimelech, and put them to the hold, and set (H3341- kindled) the hold on fire upon them; so that all the men of the tower of Shechem died also, about a thousand men and women.

Romans 10:21  But to Israel He saith, All day long I have stretched forth My hands unto a disobedient and gainsaying people.

 65:3  A people that provoketh Me to anger continually to My face; that sacrificeth in gardens, and burneth incense upon altars of brick;  (to devils, which exist not)

Deuteronomy 32:21  They have moved Me to jealousy with that which is not God; they have provoked Me to anger with their vanities: and I will move them to jealousy with those which are not a people; I will provoke them to anger with a foolish nation.

Jeremiah 7:18  The children gather wood, and the fathers kindle (H1197- burn) the fire, and the women knead their dough, to make cakes to the queen of heaven (moon worship), and to pour out drink offerings unto other gods, that they may provoke Me to anger.

The Septuagint has: 19  Do they provoke Me to anger? saith Yahweh: do they not provoke themselves, that their faces may be ashamed?

 7:20  Therefore thus saith Yahweh GOD; Behold, Mine anger and My fury shall be poured out upon this place, upon man, and upon beast, and upon the trees of the field, and upon the fruit of the ground; and it shall burn (H1197- of Yahweh's wrath, consume, destroy), and shall not be quenched.

In verse 18, the context is fire for pagan worship. So the other meanings of H1197 also apply: be stupid, brutish, dull-hearted, unreceptive.

Fire H784 also includes: supernatural fire (accompanying theophany), altar-fire, and God's anger (figuratively).

Kindling a supernatural fire on a pagan altar is indeed stupid, being dull-hearted and unreceptive to Yahweh and His laws, and would surely invoke Yahweh's wrath to consuming and destroying.


Jeremiah 9:10  For the mountains will I take up a weeping and wailing, and for the habitations of the wilderness a lamentation, because they are burned up (H3341- desolate), so that none can pass through them; neither can men hear the voice of the cattle; both the fowl of the heavens (skies) and the beast are fled; they are gone.

 9:12  Who is the wise man, that may understand this? and who is he to whom the mouth of Yahweh hath spoken, that he may declare it, for what the land perisheth and is burned up (H3341- left desolate) like a wilderness, that none passeth through?

The Septuagint has:  “...has been ravaged by fire like a desert,...:.


Jeremiah 10:8  But they are altogether brutish (H1197- ) and foolish: the stock (tree) is a doctrine of (an instruction of worthlessness) vanities.

Verses 1-9 are talking about the Christmas tree. Christmas is a pagan custom, holiday and idol worship. This is 600 BC and they are worshiping the customs of the other nations. Christ was not born until 600 years later and at the end of September. John was born on the Spring Equinox (Mar 20,21) and Christ was 6 months later (late Sept). Stop celebrating false rituals! Easter is one too!

 10:14  Every man is brutish (H1197- stupid, deprived of knowledge) in his knowledge: every founder (refiner) is confounded (put to shame) by the graven image (carved idol): for his molten image is falsehood, and there is no breath in them.

 10:21  For the pastors are become brutish (H1197- foolish, stupid, dull-hearted, unreceptive, deprived of knowledge), and have not sought Yahweh: therefore they shall not prosper, and all their flocks shall be scattered.


Jeremiah 11:16  Yahweh called your name, A green olive tree, fair, and of goodly fruit: with the noise of a great tumult He hath kindled (H3341- set fire) fire upon it, and the branches of it are broken.

The olive tree is the symbol of Israel. Fair always describes the white race.

The Hebrew word order starts as: 16  An olive tree of green, fair, of fruit in aspect has Yahweh called your name...


Jeremiah 15:14  And I will make you to pass with your enemies into a land which you knowest not: for a fire is kindled (H6919- inflamed) in Mine anger, which shall burn (H3344- to burn) upon you.


Jeremiah 17:1  The sin of Judah is written with a pen of iron, and with the point of a diamond (something hard): it is graven upon the table of their heart, and upon the horns of your (pagan) altars;   (Job 19:24)

 17:2  Whilst their children remember their altars and their groves (Asherah poles) by the green trees upon the high hills.

Judges 3:7  And the children of Israel did evil in the sight of Yahweh, and forgat Yahweh their God, and served Baalim and the carved poles of Asherah.

Groves is H842 asherah. A Babylonian (Astarte)-Canaanite goddess (of fortune and happiness). They were sacred trees or carved poles set up near a pagan altar . It is also where we get Easter from, which is not a Christian holiday, but pagan goddess worship.  

 17:3  O My mountain in the field, I will give your substance and all your treasures to the spoil, and your high places for sin, throughout all your borders.

High places of pagan worship.

 17:4  And you, even yourself, shalt discontinue from your heritage that I gave you; and I will cause you to serve your enemies in the land which you knowest not: for you have kindled (H6919- inflamed) a fire in Mine anger, which shall burn (H3344- to burn) for ever.

 17:27  But if you will not hearken unto Me to hallow the sabbath day, and not to bear a burden, even entering in at the gates of Jerusalem on the sabbath day; then will I kindle (H3341- set) a fire in the gates thereof, and it shall devour the palaces of Jerusalem, and it shall not be quenched.


Jeremiah 20:7  (Jeremiah laments) O Yahweh, You hast deceived me, and I was deceived: You art stronger than I, and hast prevailed: I am in derision daily, every one mocketh me.

Lamentations 3:14  I was a derision to all my people; and their song all the day.

 20:8  For since I spake, I cried out, I cried violence and spoil; because the word of Yahweh was made a reproach unto me, and a derision, daily.

Jeremiah was punished for speaking the truth from Yahweh.

 20:9  Then I said, I will not make mention of Him, nor speak any more in His name. But His word was in mine heart as a burning (H1197- consuming, flaming) fire shut up in my bones, and I was weary with forbearing, and I could not stay.


Jeremiah 21:12  O house of David, thus saith Yahweh; Execute judgment in the morning, and deliver him that is spoiled out of the hand of the oppressor, lest My fury go out like fire, and burn (H1197- consume, destroy) that none can quench it, because of the evil of your doings.

 21:14  But I will punish you according to the fruit of your doings, saith Yahweh: and I will kindle (H3341- set) a fire in the forest thereof, and it shall devour all things round about it.


Jeremiah 32:29  And the Chaldeans, that fight against this city, shall come and set (H3341- burn) fire on this city, and burn it with the houses, upon whose roofs they have offered incense unto Baal, and poured out drink offerings unto other gods, to provoke Me to anger.

 51:30  The mighty men of Babylon have forborn to fight, they have remained in their holds: their might hath failed; they became as women: they have burned (H3341- set on fire) her dwellingplaces; her bars (that hold the city gates closed) are broken.

 51:58  Thus saith Yahweh of hosts; The broad walls of Babylon shall be utterly broken, and her high gates shall be burned (H3341- set) with fire; and the people shall labour in vain, and the folk in the fire, and they shall be weary.

 39:10  So that they shall take no wood out of the field, neither cut down any out of the forests; for they shall burn (H1197- burn) the weapons with fire: and they shall spoil those that spoiled them, and rob those that robbed them, saith Yahweh GOD.



Hosea 7:4  They are all adulterers, as an oven heated (H1197- glowing with flame for hot-baking) by the baker, who ceaseth from raising after he hath kneaded the dough, until it be leavened (leavened with their sin).

 7:5  In the day of our king the princes (officials) have made him sick with bottles (poison) of wine; he stretched out his hand with scorners.
