- Tieto verše sú nadpisom Knihy. Zahrňujú Jeremiášovu činnosť len do 11. roku panovania Sedekiáša. Dnešná Kniha Jeremiášova obsahuje však aj udalosti po tomto roku, preto je pravdepodobné, že úvod bol pôvodne určený pre kratšiu zbierku, ktorú neskoršie sám prorok alebo jeho učeník Baruch doplnil časťami, ktoré hovoria o udalostiach po spomenutom roku, no v nadpise to neoznačil.

- Dlhý šat, aký nosili Izraeliti, bolo treba podpásať, keď sa niekto chystal na cestu, do roboty alebo do boja. Aj na Jeremiáša čaká robota a boj. – Koniec verša znie vo Vulg: "a nedopustím, aby si sa bál".
