Jeremiah 2:33 Parallel
Commentary
Barnes' Notes on the Bible

Why trimmest thou thy way - literally, "Why makest thou thy way good," a phrase used here of the pains taken by the Jews to learn the idolatries of foreign nations.

The wicked ones ... - Or, "therefore thou hast taught" thy ways wickednesses."
