    Definitions for Jeremiah 15:1

    Cast - Worn-out; old; cast-off.
    Let - To hinder or obstruct.

    Clarke's Commentary on Jeremiah 15:1

    Though Moses and Samuel - Moses had often supplicated for the people; and in consequence they were spared. See Exodus 32:11 and following verses, Numbers 14:13. Samuel also had prayed for the people, and God heard him, 1 Samuel 7:9; but if these or the most holy men were now to supplicate for this people, he would not spare them.

    Cast them out of my sight, and let them go forth - Do not bring them into my presence by your prayers; let them go forth into captivity.

    Barnes' Notes on Jeremiah 15:1

    Cast them out of my sight - Rather, "send them out of My presence, and let them go away." The prophet is to dismiss them, because their mediators, Moses and Samuel, whose intercession had been accepted in old times (marginal references), would intercede now in vain.

    Wesley's Notes on Jeremiah 15:1

    15:1 Cast them out - I am not able to abide the sight of them, therefore let them go forth.
