You can make up your own rules of exegesis but the simple fact is that Jeremiah's prophecy was against Judah's sins and involved specific punishement which affected the land. The Jews broke the Law Covenant and according to Leviticus 26:31-34 the land had to be uninhabited in order for its sabbaths to be repaid. Further, Ezra most definitely linked the seventy years of desolation with the prophecy of Jeremiah.
According to Insight, " Nowhere do the Scriptures state that the Jews had failed to keep exactly 70 Sabbath years". There is nothing that states that Judah had to be completely unpopulated during the entire 70 years. Leviticus 26:31-34 employs the words shamem and chorbah to describe the desolation, Hebrew words which do not mean complete depopulation. It meant that there would be a forced resting of the land in a broad sense, not that no-one at all would be living there.
Verse 12 of Jeremiah 25 could only be fulfilled after 539 because in that year the exiles were still in Babylon and the land of Judah was still desolated. The situation changed dramatically with their release from Babylon in 537 with the seventy years at last being fulfilled. Therefore, in the light of the historical situation manifest in ch 25 clearly shows that 29:10 is correctly translated by the NWT because after the seventy years were fulfilled, the exiles who had been in Babylon were now safely returned home.
Jer25:12 says nothing about exiles. It says that Babylon and its king would be called to account, which began to be fulfilled in 539. This clearly marked the end of Babylon's period of dominance, which was specifically indicated by Jeremiah to be the significance of the 70 years.
Commentators do not agree with you in your exegesis of verse 12 for they recognize that these words clearly show the fulfillment of the seventy years ended not with Babylon in 539 but with the Return under Cyrus. So, the focus of this oracle is not the events of Babylon as yolu claim but the Return of the Exiles as noted humbly by the 'celebrated'.
None of the commentators agree with you and your 607 dogma. The wording of verses 11 and 12 of Jeremiah 25 is clear. Verse 11 indicates that nations (not just Judah) would serve the king of Babylon for 70 years, and that Babylon and its king would be called to account after the 70 years. This does not allow for your assertion that the last two years continued under "the Medes and Persians" after 539. The nations served the king of the world power, Babylon, until 539, at which time Babylon's king was killed, and Babylon's kingdom was divided up and given away. You continue to ignore the strong undeniable connection between Jeremiah 25 and Daniel 5.
I do not ignore Daniel's prophecy of the Fall of Babylon but nowhere is this connected to Jeremiah 25:12 which simply foretells Babylon's destruction and not its Fall:
Daniel 5 = Fall of Babylon in 539
Jeremiah 25:12 = Destruction of Babylon
With this nice little formula in mind one can easily see why the NWT has an appropriate marginal footnote indicating that Babylon would not just fall but would be desolated.
Firstly, that is not a "formula". Jeremiah 25:12 discusses not just the destruction of Babylon, but specifically states the calling to account of its king after a definite period of time. Daniel 5:26-31 discusses the calling to account of Babylon's king after its days had been numbered. There is no honest way to deny the connection.
I am glad and very happy that others give you commendation for your many battles with scholar and that I have contributed greatly to your typing skills. Keep up the good work!
My typing speed was up around 90wpm before ever encountering you so you shouldn't flatter yourself too much. It is my own efforts that have assisted me by my choice to offer my responses. You have made no contribution to my edification. However, you are right that I have done "good work" which highlights your previous lies about just who it is that other readers think is foolish.
