    Yea - Yes; certainly.

    Clarke's Commentary on Jeremiah 12:6

    For even thy brethren, and the house of thy father - Thou hast none to depend on but God: even thy brethren will betray thee when they have it in their power.

    Barnes' Notes on Jeremiah 12:6

    Called a multitude - Rather, "called aloud." Compare Jeremiah 4:5. In all this Jeremiah was the type of Christ (compare Zechariah 13:6; Mark 3:21; John 7:5).
