Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 23:21

_ _ sent ... spoken — “sent” refers to the primary call: “spoken” to the subsequent charges given to be executed. A call is required, not only external, on the part of men, but also internal from God, that one should undertake a pastor’s office [Calvin].
