Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 16:2

_ _ in this place — in Judea. The direction to remain single was (whether literally obeyed, or only in prophetic vision) to symbolize the coming calamities of the Jews (Ezekiel 24:15-27) as so severe that the single state would be then (contrary to the ordinary course of things) preferable to the married (compare 1 Corinthians 7:8, 1 Corinthians 7:26, 1 Corinthians 7:29; Matthew 24:19; Luke 23:29).
