Bible Commentary for Jeremiah 2:12

Wesley's Notes for Jeremiah 2:12


2:12 O ye heavens - A pathetical expression, intimating that it is such a thing, that the very inanimate creatures, could they be sensible of it, would be astonished. Be desolate - Lose your brightness, as the sun seemed to do when Christ suffered.


Discussion for Jeremiah 2:12
