Bible Commentary for Jeremiah 22:18

Wesley's Notes for Jeremiah 22:18


22:16 Was not this - They only truly know God who obey him; men vainly pretend to piety who are defective in justice and charity.

22:19 Of an ass - None attending him to his grave, none mourning for him.

22:20 Lebanon - Jerusalem was the place to which this speech is directed: the inhabitants of which the prophet calls to go up to Lebanon. Both Lebanon and Bashan were hills that looked towards Assyria, from whence the Jews looked for help. Abarim - Abarim is the name of a mountain, as well as Lebanon and Bashan. Go and cry for help from all places, but it will be in vain; for the Egyptians and Assyrians to whom thou wert wont to fly, are themselves in the power of the Chaldeans.
