    Barnes' Notes on Jeremiah 7:28

    A nation - The "nation." Israel holds so unique a position among all nations that for it to disobey God is marvelous.

    Truth ... - Fidelity to God. Though they have the name of Yahweh often upon their lips and swear by Him Jeremiah 5:2, yet it is only profession without practice.
