Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 15:16

_ _ eat — (Ezekiel 2:8; Ezekiel 3:1, Ezekiel 3:3; Revelation 10:9, Revelation 10:10). As soon as Thy words were found by me, I eagerly laid hold of and appropriated them. The Keri reads, “Thy word.

_ _ thy word ... joy — (Job 23:12; Psalms 119:72, Psalms 119:111; compare Matthew 13:44).

_ _ called by thy name — I am Thine, Thy minister. So the antitype, Jesus Christ (Exodus 23:21).

Matthew Henry's Commentary
