The New John Gill Exposition of the Entire BibleJeremiah 6:2
I have likened the daughter of Zion to a comely and delicate
] That dwells at home and lives in pleasure, and deliciously,
in great peace and quietness, in entire ease and security, in no fear of
enemies, or apprehension of danger; and so it describes the secure
state of the Jews. Kimchi and Ben Melech supply the word "woman" as we
do; but others supply "land" or "pasture"; and think that the Jewish
nation is compared to pleasant and delightful lands and pastures, which
are inviting to shepherds to come and pitch their tents about them; as
follows. The words are by some rendered, "O beautiful and delicate one,
I have cut off, or destroyed the daughter of Zion" F15; in which sense
the word is used in (Isaiah 6:5) (Hosea 4:5) and to this purpose is the
``O beautiful and delicate one, how hast thou corrupted thy
ways? therefore the congregation of Zion is confounded;''
but the former senses seem to be best; in which the word used is
understood as having the signification of likening or comparing; for
which see (Song of Solomon 1:9) .
