Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 15:4

_ _ cause ... to be removed — (Deuteronomy 28:25; Ezekiel 23:46). Rather, “I will give them up to vexation,” I will cause them to wander so as nowhere to have repose [Calvin]; (2 Chronicles 29:8, “trouble;” Margin, “commotion”).

_ _ because of Manasseh — He was now dead, but the effects of his sins still remained. How much evil one bad man can cause! The evil fruits remain even after he himself has received repentance and forgiveness. The people had followed his wicked example ever since; and it is implied that it was only through the long-suffering of God that the penal consequences had been suspended up to the present time (compare 1 Kings 14:16; 2 Kings 21:11; 2 Kings 23:26; 2 Kings 24:3, 2 Kings 24:4).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Jeremiah 15:1-9.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Jeremiah 15:4

Manasseh — Manasseh is here named as the son of Hezekiah for his shame, because of his degeneracy from so good a parent; it is expressly said, 2 Kings 23:26, that not withstanding Josiah's reformation, yet the Lord turned not from the fierceness of his wrath, kindled against Judah, for the provocations of Manasseh.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Jeremiah 15:4

And I will (c) cause them to be removed into all kingdoms of the earth, (d) because of Manasseh the son of Hezekiah king of Judah, for [that] which he did in Jerusalem.

(c) The word signifies to run to and fro for fear and unquietness of conscience as Cain did.

(d) Not that the people were punished for the king's sin only, but for their own sins also, because they consented to his wickedness.
