    Doth - To do; to produce; make.

    Clarke's Commentary on Jeremiah 10:7

    Who would not fear thee - Who would not worship thee as the Author and Giver of all good? The fear of God is often taken for the whole of true religion.

    Among all the wise men of the nation - Not even the wisest and most cultivated of the nations have ever found out any one equal to thee; but so exalted and holy art thou, that in all their wisdom and research they have never been able to find out the true God.

    Barnes' Notes on Jeremiah 10:7

    O King of nations - i. e., pagan nations. Yahweh is not the national God of the Jews only, but He reigns over all mankind Psalm 22:28.

    It - i. e., everything.

    In all their kingdoms - More correctly, "in all their royalty or kingship."
