TOHUW WA BOHUW in Gen & Jer.

I believe Genesis 1:2 should be compared with Jeremiah 4:23.  These verses use both the
words 'tohuw wa bohuw.'  Jeremiah used it to describe the Southern Kingdom after its
destruction by the Chaldeans and Israel's enemies. I believe Genesis 1:2 describes the
Earth after the rebellion of  Lucifer and his followers. What linguistic analysis is
there that would deny this interpretation?
