* MarriageToAGod: As early as chapter 2, God equates His relationship to His people Israel to a marriage and asks them what happened that made them decide they were better off being without Him, that they would rather worship false gods than the true God. In chapter 3, God says that He has given Israel a certificate of divorce (which contextually is talking about the northern kingdom of Israel, NOT Israel as a whole, as some Bible students interpret it), yet He still calls out to them to return, since He says "I am married to you".

* StopWorshippingMe: In Chapter 44, when Jeremiah speaks to the Judean fugitives in Egypt about their worshiping the pagan Queen of Heaven and they refuse to turn away from doing that, he tells them that if they're so dead-set on worshiping pagan gods, they should go ahead and do it, on the grounds that they no longer invoke the Lord's name in any of their vows, because now He's watching after them to bring disaster upon them.
