CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
44:13 Shall bear their shame - They shall be dealt with according to their abominations, and bear the punishment thereof.

You will remember your sins and cover your mouth in silent shame when I forgive you of all that you have done. I, the Sovereign LORD, have spoken!"
They will accept responsibility for their past shame and unfaithfulness after they come home to live in peace in their own land, with no one to bother them.
