The New John Gill Exposition of the Entire BibleJeremiah 6:28
They are all grievous revolters…
From the right way of
God and his worship: or,
they are all revolters of revolters
F5; of all, the greatest revolters,
the greatest sinners and transgressors, the most stubborn and
disobedient; or sons of revolters; fathers and children are alike. The
``all their princes rebel;''
and so the Vulgate Latin and Syriac versions: "walking with slanders":
of one another; or with deceit, as the Targum; in a hypocritical and
fraudulent manner; playing the hypocrite with God, or tricking and
deceiving their neighbours. They are "brass and iron"; as vile and mean
as those metals, and not as gold and silver; or as hard and inflexible
as they are; or they deal as insincerely
``as he that mixes brass with iron;''
so the Targum:
they are all corrupters;
as such that mix metals are; they are
corrupters of themselves and of others, of the doctrines and manners of
men, and of the ways and worship of God.
