    Clarke's Commentary on Jeremiah 3:7

    And I said - By the prophets Elijah, Elisha, Hosea, Amos, etc.; for all these prophesied to that rebellious people, and exhorted them to return to the Lord.

    Barnes' Notes on Jeremiah 3:7

    Or, "And I said (i. e., within myself), After she has done all these things, she will return to me." But she did not return.

    Treacherous - literally, "Falsehood," i. e., false, faithless. The character of the two sisters is plainly marked. Samaria is apostate; she abandons Yahweh's worship altogether. Judah maintains the form only; her secret desires are set upon the orgies of pagan worship.
