Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 16:12

_ _ ye — emphatic: so far from avoiding your fathers’ bad example, ye have done worse (Jeremiah 7:26; 1 Kings 14:9).

_ _ imagination — rather, “stubborn perversity.”

_ _ that they may not hearken — rather, connected with “ye”; “ye have walked ... so as not to hearken to Me.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary
