Definitions for Jeremiah 1 :12

Clarke's Commentary on Jeremiah 1 :12

I will hasten my word - Here is a paronomasia. What dost thou see? I see שקד shaked, "an almond," the hastening tree: that which first awakes. Thou hast well seen, for (שקד shoked) I will hasten my word. I will awake, or watch over my word for the first opportunity to inflict the judgments which I threaten. The judgment shall come speedily; it shall soon flourish, and come to maturity.

Hasten - Rather, I watch over "my word to perform it."
