Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 18:13

_ _ (Jeremiah 2:10, Jeremiah 2:11). Even among the heathen it was a thing unheard of, that a nation should lay aside its gods for foreign gods, though their gods are false gods. But Israel forsook the true God for foreign false gods.

_ _ virgin of Israel — (2 Kings 19:21). It enhances their guilt, that Israel was the virgin whom God had specially betrothed to Him.

_ _ horrible thing — (Jeremiah 5:30).
