Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 7:11

_ _ den of robbers — Do you regard My temple as being what robbers make their den, namely, an asylum wherein ye may obtain impunity for your abominations (Jeremiah 7:10)?

_ _ seen it — namely, that ye treat My house as if it were a den of thieves. Jehovah implies more than is expressed, “I have seen and will punish it” (Isaiah 56:7; Matthew 21:13).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Jeremiah 7:1-15.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Jeremiah 7:11

A den — Do you look upon this house as a sanctuary for robbers and murderers.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Jeremiah 7:11

Is this house, which is called by my name, become (c) a den of robbers in your eyes? Behold, even I have seen [it], saith the LORD.

(c) As thieves hidden in holes and dens think themselves safe, so when you are in my temple, you think to be covered with the holiness of it, and that I cannot see your wickedness, (Matthew 21:13).
