Notice that Jeremiah saw the whole earth in a state of tohuw and bohuw, which means chaotic and wasted. Also, he saw the heavens had no light, meaning that the earth was plunged into total darkness. The state of the earth, which Jeremiah saw, closely resembled the description of it as given in Genesis 1:2, except that there was no global flooding. This is because God promised never to flood the earth again following Noah's flood. However, we will soon see that God's tohuw and bohuw judgement was and will be massively more cataclysmic than Noah's flood. Let us continue to read the next five verses, Jeremiah 24-28, in order to clearly understand what the future tohuw and bohuw judgement will involve.
