Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 42:12

_ _ show mercies — rather, I will excite (in him) feelings of mercy towards you [Calvin].

_ _ cause you to return — permit you to return to the peaceable enjoyment of the possessions from which you are wishing to withdraw through fear of the Chaldeans. By departing in disobedience they should incur the very evils they wished thereby to escape; and by staying they should gain the blessings which they feared to lose by doing so.
