- 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. O životopisných dátach prorokových a dejepisných údajoch pozri úvod. Jer 1,5
- Nie je tu reč o tom, že by Boh bol Jeremiášovi už pred narodením odpustil dedičný hriech a obdaril ho posväcujúcou milosťou. Hovorí sa len o jeho zasvätení, určení k prorockému úradu. Jer 1,10
- Treba si všimnúť, že sa štyrmi výrazmi označuje rúcanie a len dvoma budovanie. Toto je skutočný ráz knihy. Predpovedá väčšinou pohromy a len miestami preráža v nej nádej na požehnanú budúcnosť. Jer 1,11-12
- V pôvodine je slovná hračka. Prút mandľovníka sa v prorokovej materčine volá "bdelý prút", pretože sa prvý prebúdza zo zimného spánku a bedlí, keď ostatné rastliny ešte spia. I Boh bude bedliť a splní, čo predpovedal. Jer 1,13
- Obsah hrnca kypel od severu. Najmocnejší nepriatelia Júdska prichádzali naozaj od severu. Jer 1,15
- Tróny sú kreslá vojvodcov nepriateľských vojsk, ktoré budú obliehať Jeruzalem. Jer 1,16
- Národ okiadzal cudzích bohov, keď im prinášal kadidlové a zápalné obety. Jer 1,17
- 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".
