Jeremiah 1:12

Then said the LORD unto me, You have well seen: for I will hasten my word to perform it.
Read Chapter 1

Ambrose of Milan

AD 397
It is written in the book of the prophet, “Take a branch from a nut tree.” So we must consider why the Lord said this to the prophet, for it is not written without a purpose, since we also read in the Pentateuch that the nut tree of Aaron, the priest, blossomed after it had been laid away for a long while. - "Letter 62" ...

Didascalia Apostolorum

AD 230
Now our rod is the Word of God, Jesus Christ, as Jeremiah saw him as an almond rod. So everyone that spares his son a word of rebuke hates his son. Therefore teach your sons the word of the Lord. Punish them with lashes. Subdue them by your word of religion from their youth. - "Didascalia 22.[4.11]" ...

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. - 2 Peter 1:20
