Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 11:14

_ _ There is a climax of guilt which admits of no further intercessory prayer (Exodus 32:10, in the Chaldee version, “leave off praying”; Jeremiah 7:16; 1 Samuel 16:1; 1 Samuel 15:35; 1 John 5:16). Our mind should be at one with God in all that He is doing, even in the rejection of the reprobate.

_ _ for their trouble — on account of their trouble. Other manuscripts read, “in the time of their trouble;” a gloss from Jeremiah 11:12.
