Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 6:15

_ _ Rosenmuller translates, “They ought to have been ashamed, because ... but,” etc.; the Hebrew verb often expressing, not the action, but the duty to perform it (Genesis 20:9; Malachi 2:7). Maurer translates, “They shall be put to shame, for they commit abomination; nay (the prophet correcting himself), there is no shame in them” (Jeremiah 3:3; Jeremiah 8:12; Ezekiel 3:7; Zephaniah 3:5).

_ _ them that fall — They shall fall with the rest of their people who are doomed to fall, that is, I will now cease from words; I will execute vengeance [Calvin].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Jeremiah 6:9-17.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Jeremiah 6:15

Committed — Both by encouraging the people, and joining with them in their idolatries.
