    Definitions for Jeremiah 22:7

    Cast - Worn-out; old; cast-off.

    Clarke's Commentary on Jeremiah 22:7

    They shall cut down thy choice cedars - The destruction of the country is expressed under the symbol of the destruction of a fine forest; a multitude of fellers come against it, each with his axe; and, there being no resistance, every tree is soon felled to the earth. "These destroyers," God says, "I have prepared, קדשתי kiddashti, I have sanctified - consecrated, to this work. They have their commission from me."
