The New John Gill Exposition of the Entire BibleJeremiah 23:35
Thus shall ye say everyone to his neighbour, and everyone
to his brother…
When conferring about religious things, and the
word of God in particular; when any inquiry is made of another, whether
any message from the Lord by his prophets? or what is it? that it
should not be put in such deriding and calumniating words, "what is the
burden of the Lord?" but in more decent and becoming language, thus,
what hath the Lord answered? and what hath the Lord spoken?
lawfully and laudably inquire of the prophet what answer he had
received from the Lord, and what it was that he had said to him,
provided they were serious in it, and asked with meekness and fear: the
word of God should be reverently spoken of, and attended to.
