    Clarke's Commentary on Jeremiah 50:7

    Their adversaries said, We offend not - God has abandoned them; we are only fulfilling his designs in plaguing them.

    Barnes' Notes on Jeremiah 50:7

    Offend not - i. e., "are not guilty." Israel having left the fold, has no owner, and may therefore be maltreated with impunity.

    Habitation of justice - In Jeremiah 31:23 applied to Jerusalem: here, Yahweh alone is the true pasturage, in whom His people will find safety, rest, and plenty.

    Wesley's Notes on Jeremiah 50:7

    50:7 Habitation - Some think this is a name here given to God, who indeed is the habitation of justice, but whether the Chaldeans would call him so, may be a question. Others therefore think the preposition in is understood, making this the aggravation of the Jews sins, that they were committed in a land which ought to have been an habitation of justice.
