Treasury of Scripture

And you shall say to them, Thus said the LORD; If you will not listen to me, to walk in my law, which I have set before you,

If.

Deuteronomy 28:15
But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe to do all his commandments and his statutes which I command thee this day; that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee:

Lest there should be among you man, or woman, or family, or tribe, whose heart turneth away this day from the LORD our God, to go and serve the gods of these nations; lest there should be among you a root that beareth gall and wormwood; …

which.

Jeremiah 44:10
They are not humbled even unto this day, neither have they feared, nor walked in my law, nor in my statutes, that I set before you and before your fathers.

Deuteronomy 4:8,44
And what nation is there so great, that hath statutes and judgments so righteous as all this law, which I set before you this day? …

Deuteronomy 11:32
And ye shall observe to do all the statutes and judgments which I set before you this day.









(4, 5) To walk in my law, which I have set before you.--The words present more vividly than in the parallels of Jeremiah 7:25; Jeremiah 25:4 the relation of the Law as the groundwork of the teaching of the Prophets, their office being that of preachers and expounders, making men feel that the commandment was "exceeding broad." The "Law and the Prophets" are already coupled together, as in Matthew 5:17; Matthew 22:40, as making up God's revelation of His will to Israel.

Verses 4-6. - The contents of the discourse (see especially on Jeremiah 7:12-15). The priests and the prophets interfere, arrest Jeremiah, and accuse him of a capital crime. It would appear that some at least of the "false prophets" were priests; thus Pashur, we are told, was a priest (Jeremiah 20:6).
