Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 9:22

_ _ saith the Lord — continuing the thread of discourse from Jeremiah 9:20.

_ _ dung — (Jeremiah 8:2).

_ _ handful ... none ... gather them — implying that the handful has been so trodden as to be not worth even the poor gleaner’s effort to gather it. Or the Eastern custom may be referred to: the reaper cuts the grain and is followed by another who gathers it. This grain shall not be worth gathering. How galling to the pride of the Jews to hear that so shall their carcasses be trodden contemptuously under foot!

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Jeremiah 9:12-22.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Jeremiah 9:22

As the handful — They shall be no more regarded than a few scattered ears that drop out of the reapers hand, which either lie on the ground and are eaten by birds, or trod to dirt by beasts. None — None shall have so much respect to them, as to afford burial.
