    Definitions for Jeremiah 5:12

    Belied - To lie against; to speak falsely.

    Clarke's Commentary on Jeremiah 5:12

    They have belied the Lord - כחשו kichashu. They have denied or disavowed the Lord.

    It is not he - לוא הוא lo hu, he is not; there is no such being; therefore this evil shall not come upon us. On their premises, this conclusion was just. There is no judge; therefore there shall be no judgment. Thus they denied the Lord. They were atheists at heart.
