Wesley's Notes for Jeremiah 9:24


9:24 Knoweth - Whether we make any curious distinction between understanding God, as if that be more speculative, whereby we rightly apprehend his nature; and knowing God, as if that be more practical, as directing the conversation, we need not here enquire; yet certainly both center in this, that we so know and understand God as to trust in him, and depend on him alone in all conditions. Exercise - Kindness, as it relates to his own people; judgment, in punishing the wicked; righteousness, as he deals justly and uprightly with both.

    Verse 25 may mean that in war even the innocent are killed or hurt with the wicked. When a missile lands it punishes everyone in the area no matter if they are righteous or not.
  • Insight 777
    Verse 13 may refer to what Jesus said in John chapter 15 verse 12 and chapter 15 verse 17. "These things I command you that ye love one another. " Verse 15... If Love is absent in the heart of man only Hate, gall, remains. I think wormwood is nuclear destruction. I think that circumcision always was meant to be symbolic. I do not believe God would require a piece of flesh to be removed and the original form that God created destroyed. God made man in his image, only Satan would want to change that image. To be circumcised is to cut Hate away from one so that only Love remains. This is a thought process not a physical process. Circumcision is spiritual and not a physical cutting of flesh. Love never wants to cause pain.
