jer 13:5So - Most think Jeremiah did this in a vision, for it was a very long journey from Anathoth to Euphrates.
jer 13:12Do we not know - This is no strange thing.
jer 13:13Behold - There is a wine of astonishment and confusion, Psa 60:3. With that wine, saith God, I will fill all orders of persons, kings, priests, prophets, and all the inhabitants of Jerusalem.
jer 13:16Give glory - Glorify God, by an humble confession of your sins, by submitting yourselves to God, humbling yourselves under his word, and under his mighty hand, before God brings upon you, his great and heavy judgments.
jer 13:19The cities - The cities of Judah lay southward from Chaldea.
jer 13:20Where - The prophet speaks to the king, or to the rulers. In the multitude of the people is the king's honour.
jer 13:21What wilt thou say - Thou wilt have nothing to say, but be wholly confounded when God shall visit thee with this sore judgment, for by thy so often calling them to thy assistance, thou hast taught them to be captains over thee.
