Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 26:2

_ _ in the court — the largest court, from which he could be heard by the whole people.

_ _ come to worshipWorship is vain without obedience (1 Samuel 15:21, 1 Samuel 15:22).

_ _ all the words — (Ezekiel 3:10).

_ _ diminish not a word — (Deuteronomy 4:2; Deuteronomy 12:32; Proverbs 30:6; Acts 20:27; 2 Corinthians 2:17; 2 Corinthians 4:2; Revelation 22:19). Not suppressing or softening aught for fear of giving offense; nor setting forth coldly and indirectly what can only by forcible statement do good.
