    Clarke's Commentary on Jeremiah 3:17

    They shall call Jerusalem the throne of the Lord - The new Jerusalem, the universal Church of Christ, shall be God's throne: and wherever he is acknowledged as the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world, there God sits on his throne, and holds his court.

    Barnes' Notes on Jeremiah 3:17

    The throne of the Lord - Yahweh's throne shall not be the ark, but Jerusalem, i. e., the Christian Church Revelation 21:2; Galatians 4:26.

    To Jerusalem - The Septuagint and Syriac are probably right in omitting this word.

    Imagination ... - Stubbornness (margin). A word always used in a bad sense, for "obstinacy."
