Definitions for Jeremiah 4 :8

Gird - To fasten, secure; to equip; prepare.

Clarke's Commentary on Jeremiah 4 :8

Lament and howl - הילילו heililu. The aboriginal Irish had a funeral song called the Caoinian, still continued among their descendants, one part of which is termed the ulaloo: this is sung responsively or alternately, and is accompanied with a full chorus of sighs and groans. It has been thought that Ireland was originally peopled by the Phoenicians: if so, this will account for the similarity of many words and customs among both these people.

Barnes's Commentary on Jeremiah 4 :8

Is not turned ... - As long as their sins are unrepented of, so long must their punishment continue.

Wesley's Commentary on Jeremiah 4 :8
