Definitions for Jeremiah 44 :4

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' Commentary on Jeremiah 44 :4

Howbeit I sent - And I sent.
