Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 23:20

_ _ in ... latter days — that is, “the year of their visitation” (Jeremiah 23:12). Primarily the meaning is: the Jews will not “consider” now God’s warnings (Deuteronomy 32:29); but when the prophecies shall be fulfilled in their Babylonish exile, they will consider and see, by bitter experience, their sinful folly. The ultimate scope of the prophecy is: the Jews, in their final dispersion, shall at last “consider” their sin and turn to Messiah “perfectly” (Hosea 3:5; Zechariah 12:5, Zechariah 12:10-14; Luke 13:35).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Jeremiah 23:9-32.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Jeremiah 23:20

The anger — The prophet speaks of the judgment as of a messenger, which should not return till it had done its errand, and executed what God had resolved it should effect. Ye shall consider — And though you will not now believe it, yet hereafter when it shall be too late, you shall consider it perfectly.
