    Forsaken - To leave in an abandoned condition.

    Clarke's Commentary on Jeremiah 15:6

    I am weary with repenting - With repeatedly changing my purpose. I have often, after purposing to punish, showed them mercy. I will do it no longer; it is useless. I took them often at their promise, and in every instance they have failed.

    Barnes' Notes on Jeremiah 15:6

    This verse gives the reason of the refusal of Yahweh to hear the prophet's intercession. The punishment due has been delayed unto wearisomeness, and this seeming failure of justice has made Judah withdraw further from God.

    Wesley's Notes on Jeremiah 15:6

    15:6 I am weary - I am resolved to bear no longer.
