    Clarke's Commentary on Jeremiah 44:4

    O, do not this abominable thing - A strong specimen of affectionate entreaty. One of the finest figures of poetry, when judiciously managed, the anthropopathia, the ascribing human passions to God, is often used by this prophet: so God is said to grieve, to mourn, to have his bowels moved with compassion, to repent, to be angry, etc. Here he is represented as tenderly expostulating: O, do not; or, I entreat you, do not that abominable thing which Ihate.

    1. Do it not: your God commands.

    2. O, do it not: your Father entreats.

    3. It is an abominable thing, and should not be done.

    4. I hate it, and on that account ye should abstain from it.

    Barnes' Notes on Jeremiah 44:4

    Howbeit I sent - And I sent.
