Jeremiah 4:14

_ _ Only one means of deliverance is left to the Jews — a thorough repentance.

_ _ vain thoughts — namely, projects for deliverance, such as enlisting the Egyptians on their side. Gesenius translates, “How long wilt thou harbor vain thoughts?”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Jeremiah 4:5-18.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Jeremiah 4:14

Wash — As a means to prevent the judgments that are impending. Vain thoughts — Vain fancies of safety.
