The New John Gill Exposition of the Entire BibleJeremiah 16:12
And ye have done worse than your fathers…
committed the same sins, but greater, or, however, attended with more
aggravating circumstances; they were wilfully and impudently done, and
obstinately persisted in; and therefore deserving of the great evil of
punishment pronounced against them.
For, behold, ye walk everyone after the imagination of his evil heart;
they walked not as the word of God directs, but as their own evil heart
dictated; the imagination of which was evil, and that continually,
(Genesis 6:5) .
That they may not hearken unto me;
to the word of the Lord, and obey
that; their minds being blinded, and their hearts hardened, and they
obstinately bent on their own evil ways.
