Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 50:6

_ _ (Isaiah 53:6).

_ _ on the mountains — whereon they sacrificed to idols (Jeremiah 2:20; Jeremiah 3:6, Jeremiah 3:23).

_ _ resting-place — for the “sheep,” continuing the image; Jehovah is the resting-place of His sheep (Matthew 11:28). They rest in His “bosom” (Isaiah 40:11). Also His temple at Zion, their “rest,” because it is His (Psalms 132:8, Psalms 132:14).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Jeremiah 50:1-8.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Jeremiah 50:6

Their shepherds — Their civil and ecclesiastical governors have been a cause of it. The former by their wicked commands and example; the latter by example as well as doctrine. Turned them — To offer sacrifices unto idols. From mountain — From one idolatry to another. Forgotten — They have forgotten me.
