Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 31:29

_ _ In those days — after their punishment has been completed, and mercy again visits them.

_ _ fathers ... eaten ... sour grape ... children’s teeth ... on edge — the proverb among the exiles’ children born in Babylon, to express that they suffered the evil consequences of their fathers’ sins rather than of their own (Lamentations 5:7; Ezekiel 18:2, Ezekiel 18:3).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Jeremiah 31:27-34.
