    Clarke's Commentary on Jeremiah 14:19

    We looked for peace - We expected prosperity when Josiah purged the land of idolatry.

    And there is no good - For we have relapsed into our former ways.

    Barnes' Notes on Jeremiah 14:19

    A second (compare Jeremiah 14:7-9) earnest intercession, acknowledging the wickedness of the nation, but appealing to the covenant and to God's Almighty power.

    Lothed - More exactly, "hath thrown away as worthless."
