Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 11:15

_ _ my beloved — My elect people, Judea; this aggravates their ingratitude (Jeremiah 12:7).

_ _ lewdness with many — (Ezekiel 16:25). Rather, “that great (or, manifold) enormity”; literally, “the enormity, the manifold”; namely, their idolatry, which made their worship of God in the temple a mockery (compare Jeremiah 7:10; Ezekiel 23:39) [Henderson].

_ _ holy flesh — (Haggai 2:12-14; Titus 1:15), namely, the sacrifices, which, through the guilt of the Jews, were no longer holy, that is, acceptable to God. The sacrifices on which they relied will, therefore, no longer protect them. Judah is represented as a priest’s wife, who, by adultery, has forfeited her share in the flesh of the sacrifices, and yet boasts of her prerogative at the very same time [Horsley].

_ _ when thou doest evil — literally, “when thy evil” (is at hand). Piscator translates, “When thy calamity is at hand (according to God’s threats), thou gloriest” (against God, instead of humbling thyself). English Version is best (compare Proverbs 2:14).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Jeremiah 11:11-17.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Jeremiah 11:15

My beloved — My people, saith God, though I was formerly their husband, yet have wrought lewdness with many, that is, committed idolatry with many idols, and now what have they to do more in my house? The holy flesh — Flesh of their sacrifices, being set before idols, as well as before God, became polluted, and was abomination to the Lord. Thou rejoicest — They were not only evil but gloried in their wickedness.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Jeremiah 11:15

What hath my (k) beloved to do in my house, [seeing] she hath wrought lewdness with many, and the holy flesh (l) is passed from thee? when thou doest evil, then thou rejoicest.

(k) My people of Israel whom I have greatly loved till now.

(l) Meaning, that they offer not in the temple to God, but on the altars of Baal and the idols and so rejoiced in their wickedness.
