Definitions for Jeremiah 8 :18

Clarke's Commentary on Jeremiah 8 :18

Barnes's Commentary on Jeremiah 8 :18

Rather, "O my comfort in sorrow: my heart faints for me." The word translated "comfort" is by some supposed to be corrupt. With these mournful ejaculations a new strophe begins, ending with Jeremiah 9:1, in which the prophet mourns over the miserable fate of his countrymen, among whom he had been earnestly laboring, but all in vain.

Wesley's Commentary on Jeremiah 8 :18

8:18 Sorrow - The prophet now seems to speak, how greatly the calamity of this people affected him.
