Wesley's Notes for Jeremiah 14:9


14:9 Astonished - In such disorder through some great passion, that he is able to do nothing. A mighty man - Like a man who in his own nature is strong, but through sickness so weakened, that he cannot put forth any strength for the succour of his friends. Yet - Yet (saith the prophet) thou art in the midst of us; of the whole land, according to what God had declared, #Numb 5:3 35:34|. Defile not the land which ye shall inhabit, wherein I dwell: for I the Lord dwell among the children of Israel.
