Jeremiah was born about 457 BCE in the city of Libna. Libna is situated in the south of Judah & in the district of Eleutheropolis. It is probably the Libnah in the neighborhood of which the Israelites encamped. Died about 496 BC. Now Tell Defenneh (Suez Canal). He met a martyr's death being stoned to death by the Jews, who resented his faithful reproofs.
