The New John Gill Exposition of the Entire BibleJeremiah 2:29
Wherefore will ye plead with me?
&c.] Strive and contend,
chide, murmur, and complain, when evil came upon them, as if the Lord
dealt hardly with them, and as if they had never sinned against him;
when their case would not bear to be brought into judgment and examined
openly; what would they get by that but shame and disgrace?
ye all have transgressed against me, saith the Lord;
high and low, rich
and poor, great and small; men of all ranks, degrees, and character;
kings, priests and prophets; and therefore ought not to contend with
God, and charge him with injustice or unkindness, but themselves with
folly and wickedness.
