God, being omniscient, was aware that, regardless of whether Jeremiah interceded with Him for the people (as individuals such as Moses and Samuel had done in their eras), it would have no effect on the people's sinful actions, since their evil had reached such a degree that they had passed a spiritual "point of no return", where nothing would succeed in enabling them to repent, reform, and be restored. There remained only the just and righteous judgment that God would inflict upon them for their actions.
