Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 5:5

_ _ they have known — rather, “they must know.” The prophet supposes it as probable, considering their position.

_ _ but these — I found the very reverse to be the case.

_ _ burst ... bonds — set God’s law at defiance (Psalms 2:3).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Jeremiah 5:1-9.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Jeremiah 5:5

But — These are more refractory than the other; no law of God is able to hold them.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Jeremiah 5:5

I will go to the (e) great men, and will speak to them; for they have known the way of the LORD, [and] the judgment of their God: but these have altogether broken the yoke, [and] burst the bonds.

(e) He speaks this to the reproach of them who would govern and teach others, and yet are farther out of the way than the simple people.
