Bible Commentary for Jeremiah 20:7

Wesley's Notes for Jeremiah 20:7


20:7 Hast prevailed - Thou prevailedst against me. Jeremiah at first excused himself to God, chap.#1:6|, but the Lord prevailed against him replying, ver.#1:7|, Say not, I am a child, for thou shalt go to all that I shall send thee, and whatsoever I command thee thou shalt speak, ver.#1:9|. This is all that is here meant, namely, God's over - ruling him contrary to his own inclinations.
