Jeremiah 6:17

Also I set watchmen over you
That is, prophets, as Jarchi; true prophets, as Kimchi; such an one was Ezekiel, (Jeremiah 3:17) . The Targum interprets it teachers; such were the apostles and first ministers of the Gospel; and all faithful preachers of it, who teach men good doctrine and watch for their souls, give them warning of their danger, and exhort them to flee to Christ for rest and safety; and these are of the Lord's appointing, constituting, and setting in his churches; see (1 Corinthians 12:28) . Saying, hearken to the sound of the trumpet;
to their voice, lifted up like a trumpet, (Isaiah 58:1) , to the word preached by them; to the law, which lays before them their sin and danger; and to the Gospel, which is a joyful sound, and gives a certain one, and proclaims peace, pardon, and salvation, by Christ: but they said, we will not hearken;
so the Jews, in the times of Christ and his apostles, turned a deaf ear to their ministry, contradicted and blasphemed the Gospel, and judged themselves unworthy of it, and of eternal life, brought to light by it. Perhaps here it may regard the punishments threatened the Jews by the prophets, which they would not believe were coming upon them, but put away the evil day far from them.
