(20) I will make thee unto this people . . .--It is significant that the promise reproduced the very words which the prophet had heard when he was first summoned to his work (see Note on Jeremiah 1:18-19). Jehovah had not been unfaithful to His word, but, like all promises, it depended on implied conditions, and these the faint-hearted, desponding prophet had but imperfectly fulfilled. Let him "return" to the temper of trust, and there should be an abundant deliverance for him.

Verse 20. - And I will make thee, etc.; a solemn confirmation of the promises in Jeremiah 1:18, 19.
