When a battery is run down you shouldn't rely on the alternator to recharge it. Recharge the battery with a charger, that may help things.

If the battery is very flat it will not run after a jump start. You need to keep the revs high for a few minutes to get some charge into the battery before it will idle on it's own.. I've done this with a hand throttle before, if you don't have a hand throttle you need to keep your foot on the accelerator, and someone else can disconnect the jumper cables.

You might have a shorted cell in the battery. Get it tested and replaced if neccessary.

If it doesn't work properly, look for the service manual link at the bottom of the page.

Yes. After a jump your Jeep will not idle. Keep the revs up a little bit, have someone else disconnect the cables and go for a 5-10 minute drive on an open road. Your problem will be solved.
