Definitions for Jeremiah 23 :13

Clarke's Commentary on Jeremiah 23 :13

I have seen folly in the prophets of Samaria - This was not to be wondered at, for their religion was a system of corruption.

Barnes' Commentary on Jeremiah 23 :13

And I have seen folly ... - Rather, "Also I have seen." The prophet contrasts the prophets of Samaria with those of Jerusalem. In the conduct of the former God saw folly (literally that which is insipid, as being unsalted). It was stupidity to prophesy by Baal, an idol.

In Baal - i. e., in the name of Baal.

Wesley's Commentary on Jeremiah 23 :13

23:13 They prophesied - Pretending they had their instructions from Baal, and so caused the ten tribes to err, which then were called Israel in contradistinction to Judah.
