Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 7:9-10

_ _ “Will ye steal ... and then come and stand before Me?”

_ _ whom ye know not — Ye have no grounds of “knowing” that they are gods; but I have manifested My Godhead by My law, by benefits conferred, and by miracles. This aggravates their crime [Calvin] (Judges 5:8).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Jeremiah 7:1-15.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Jeremiah 7:9

Will ye steal — Can you think that this can be grateful to me, or advantageous to yourselves, to frequent my house, and yet retain these odious sins. Whom — Such as they had set up new, and never had any experience of, and therefore could have no reason to serve them.
