Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 12:11

_ _ mourneth unto me — that is, before Me. Eichorn translates, “by reason of Me,” because I have given it to desolation (Jeremiah 12:7).

_ _ because no man layeth it to heart — because none by repentance and prayer seek to deprecate God’s wrath. Or, “yet none lays it to heart”; as in Jeremiah 5:3 [Calvin].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Jeremiah 12:7-13.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Jeremiah 12:11

They — Heb. He hath made it desolate: but it cannot be meant of God, for it is God that speaketh, and God is he mentioned in the next words; it must therefore either be understood of Nebuchadnezzar, the instrumental cause; or (one number being put for another) of the people or the rulers as the meritorious cause, and in that rueful state into which their sins had brought it, it cried onto God. Because — And one great cause of this sore judgment was, the peoples not seriously considering what God had done or was doing against it.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Jeremiah 12:11

They have made it desolate, [and being] desolate it mourneth to me; the whole land is made desolate, because no man layeth (l) [it] to heart.

(l) Because no man regards my word, or the plagues that I have sent on the land.
