Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 11:8

_ _ imagination — rather, “stubbornness.”

_ _ will bring — The words, “even unto this day” (Jeremiah 11:7), confirm English Version rather than the rendering of Rosenmuller: “I brought upon them.”

_ _ words — threats (Jeremiah 11:3; Deuteronomy 27:15-26).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Jeremiah 11:1-10.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Jeremiah 11:8

Did them not — For this God threatens to bring upon them all his words of threatening, annexed to the covenant of the law.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Jeremiah 11:8

Yet they obeyed not, nor inclined their ear, but walked every one in the imagination of their (d) evil heart: therefore I will bring upon them all the (e) words of this covenant, which I commanded [them] to do; but they did [them] not.

(d) According to his own fantasy, and not as my word appointed him.

(e) Meaning, the menaces and curses contained in the law, (Leviticus 26:14; Deuteronomy 28:16).
