Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 11:13

_ _ shameful thingHebrew, “shame,” namely, the idol, not merely shameful, but the essence of all that is shameful (Jeremiah 3:24; Hosea 9:10), which will bring shame and confusion on yourselves [Calvin].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Jeremiah 11:11-17.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Jeremiah 11:13

That shameful thing — Baal, called a shameful thing, because it was what they had reason to be ashamed of, and what would certainly bring them to shame and confusion. Baal — Signifies Lord, and was a common name given to more idols than one; the Phoenicians used the name Baal, the Chaldeans, Bell. Learned men say, that the Asians called the same idol Baal, whom those of Europe called Jupiter. It is not improbable, that the Heathens acknowledging one supreme being, worshipped him in several creatures; some mistaking the Sun, Moon, and Stars to be he, others, other things; these they called Baalim, Lords, as they called the principal god, Baal.
