Treasury of Scripture

Then all the men which knew that their wives had burned incense to other gods, and all the women that stood by, a great multitude, even all the people that dwelled in the land of Egypt, in Pathros, answered Jeremiah, saying,

Jeremiah 5:1-5

Genesis 19:4
But before they lay down, the men of the city, even the men of Sodom, compassed the house round, both old and young, all the people from every quarter:

Nehemiah 13:26
Did not Solomon king of Israel sin by these things? yet among many nations was there no king like him, who was beloved of his God, and God made him king over all Israel: nevertheless even him did outlandish women cause to sin.









(15) All the men which knew that their wives had burned incense.--The fact thus mentioned incidentally shows that the prophet's words in Jeremiah 44:9 had not missed their mark. As of old--as, we may add, in the Rome of the Empire (Juvenal, Sat. vi. 526?534)--the women practised a cultus in which their husbands acquiesced, even though they did not join in it.

Verses 15-19. - The reply of the people. The special mention of the women suggests that the occasion of the gathering was a festival in honour of the Queen of Heaven. Verse 15. - Had burned incense; rather, were burning incense. The practice was still going on.
