Bible Commentary for Jeremiah 19:3

Wesley's Notes for Jeremiah 19:3


19:4 This place - Either this city, or this valley, which they had turned to an use quite contrary to the end for which God gave it them.

19:5 To burn - This and the following verse, contain another great sin of this people, with the punishment which God proportions to it. The sin in the general was idolatry, but a most barbarous species of it, mentioned also chap.#7:31 32:35|, where it is said, they made their sons and their daughters pass thro' the fire to Molech; the place where they did it is called Tophet, ver.#19:6|, of which also mention is made, #Isa 30:33|. Baal and Molech, signify the same thing; Baal signifies a Lord, Molech a King. Both Baal and Molech seem common names to all idols.
