    Definitions for Jeremiah 14:14

    Nought - Nothing.

    Clarke's Commentary on Jeremiah 14:14

    The prophets prophesy lies - They say they have visions, but they have them by divination, and they are false. The people should know their character, and avoid them but they love to have it so, and will not be undeceived.

    Divination - i. e., "conjuring," the abuse of the less understood powers of nature. It was strictly forbidden to all Jews Deuteronomy 18:10.

    A thing of nought - Probably a small idol made of the more precious metals Isaiah 2:20. These methods the prophet declares to be the "deceit of their heart, i. e., not self-deceit, but a willful and intentional fraud.
