Bible Commentary for Jeremiah 31:8

Wesley's Notes for Jeremiah 31:8


31:6 Arise - This was fulfilled under the gospel; for both Galilee and Samaria received the gospel.

31:9 With weeping - Some think that it had been better translated, they went weeping; for though the verb be the future tense in the Hebrew, yet that tense has often the signification of the preterperfect tense, thus it answereth, #Psa 126:5|,6. He that goeth forth weeping, bearing precious seed, shalt doubtless come again rejoicing. There is a weeping for joy, as well as for sorrow, and thus the text corresponds with that, #Zech 12:10|. I will pour upon them the spirit of grace and supplications, and they shall look upon him whom they have pierced, and mourn. By rivers - And they shall have no want as they had when they came out of Egypt, through the wilderness, where they often wanted water.
