Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 11:21

_ _ Prophesy not — (Isaiah 30:10; Amos 2:12; Micah 2:6). If Jeremiah had not uttered his denunciatory predictions, they would not have plotted against him. None were more bitter than his own fellow townsmen. Compare the conduct of the Nazarites towards Jesus of Nazareth (Luke 4:24-29).

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Jeremiah 11:21

Therefore thus saith the LORD concerning the men of (q) Anathoth, that seek thy life, saying, (r) Prophesy not in the name of the LORD, that thou die not by our hand:

(q) That is, both the priests and the rest of the people: for this town was the priests, and they dwelt in it, (Jeremiah 1:1).

(r) Not that they could not abide to hear God named; (for in this they would show themselves most holy) but because they could not abide to be sharply reproved, and therefore desired to be flattered (Isaiah 30:10), to be maintained in their pleasures (Micah 2:11) and not to hear vice condemned (Amos 7:12).
