Jeremiah 1:16 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible

The LORD will send on you curses, confusion and rebuke in everything you put your hand to, until you are destroyed and come to sudden ruin because of the evil you have done in forsaking him.
Their land is full of idols; they bow down to the work of their hands, to what their fingers have made.
They have thrown their gods into the fire and destroyed them, for they were not gods but only wood and stone, fashioned by human hands.
Where then are the gods you made for yourselves? Let them come if they can save you when you are in trouble! For you, Judah, have as many gods as you have towns.
"'Will you steal and murder, commit adultery and perjury, burn incense to Baal and follow other gods you have not known,
For the practices of the peoples are worthless; they cut a tree out of the forest, and a craftsman shapes it with his chisel.
