    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' Notes on Jeremiah 4:8

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