Jeremiah 5:5 Parallel
Commentary
Barnes' Notes on the Bible

They have known ... - Men of education, who read the Scriptures, and learn from them the nature of God's judgments.

The yoke - The Mosaic law.

And burst ... - They have torn off, torn themselves loose from.

The bonds - The fastenings by which the yoke was fixed upon the necks of the oxen.
