    Barnes' Notes on Jeremiah 6:15

    They are brought to shame because

    They have "committed abomination:"

    Shame nevertheless they feel not;

    To blush nevertheless they know not;

    "Therefore they shall fall among" the falling;

    "At the time" when "I visit them, they shall" stumble,

    "Saith Yahweh."

    The fact is expressed that their conduct was a disgrace to them, though they did not feel it as such. "Abomination" has its usual meaning of idolatry Jeremiah 4:1.

    Wesley's Notes on Jeremiah 6:15

    6:15 Committed - Both by encouraging the people, and joining with them in their idolatries.
