Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 8:5

_ _ slidden ... backsliding — rather, as the Hebrew is the same as in Jeremiah 8:4, to which this verse refers, “turned away with a perpetual turning away.

_ _ perpetual — in contrast to the “arise” (“rise again,” Jeremiah 8:4).

_ _ refuse to return — in contrast to, “shall he ... not return” (Jeremiah 8:4; Jeremiah 5:3).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Jeremiah 8:4-12.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Jeremiah 8:5

Deceit — Their false prophets, encouraging themselves in their wickedness, and pleasing themselves, that their miseries should not come upon them.
