Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 12:6

_ _ even thy brethren — as in Christ’s case (Psalms 69:8; John 1:11; John 7:5; compare Jeremiah 9:4; Jeremiah 11:19, Jeremiah 11:21; Matthew 10:36). Godly faithfulness is sure to provoke the ungodly, even of one’s own family.

_ _ called a multitude after thee — (Isaiah 31:4). Jerome translates, “cry after thee with a loud (literally, ‘full’) voice.”

_ _ believe ... not ... though ... speak fair — (Proverbs 26:25).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Jeremiah 12:1-6.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Jeremiah 12:6

For even — The men of Anathoth, thine own town and country, and those of thy own family have conspired evil against thee secretly. A multitude — They have exposed thee to the rage of a multitude. Though — Tho' therefore they give thee fair words, yet repose no confidence in them.
