Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 19:4

_ _ (Isaiah 65:11).

_ _ estranged this place — devoted it to the worship of strange gods: alienating a portion of the sacred city from God, the rightful Lord of the temple, city, and whole land.

_ _ nor their fathers — namely, the godly among them; their ungodly fathers God makes no account of.

_ _ blood of innocents — slain in honor of Molech (Jeremiah 7:31; Psalms 106:37).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Jeremiah 19:1-9.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Jeremiah 19:4

This place — Either this city, or this valley, which they had turned to an use quite contrary to the end for which God gave it them.
