Chapter 13

Chapter Overview

In the type of a linen girdle God prefigures their destruction, verse 1-11.
Under the parable of bottles filled with wine, is foretold their drunkenness with misery, verse 12-14.
He exhorts to prevent these judgments by repentance, verse 15-27.

Verse 5
So - Most think Jeremiah did this in a vision, for it was a very long journey from Anathoth to Euphrates.

Verse 12
Do we not know - This is no strange thing.

Verse 13
Behold - There is a wine of astonishment and confusion, Psalms 60:3. With that wine, saith God, I will fill all orders of persons, kings, priests, prophets, and all the inhabitants of Jerusalem.

Verse 16
Give glory - Glorify God, by an humble confession of your sins, by submitting yourselves to God, humbling yourselves under his word, and under his mighty hand, before God brings upon you, his great and heavy judgments.

Verse 19
The cities - The cities of Judah lay southward from Chaldea.

Verse 20
Where - The prophet speaks to the king, or to the rulers. In the multitude of the people is the king's honour.

Verse 21
What wilt thou say - Thou wilt have nothing to say, but be wholly confounded when God shall visit thee with this sore judgment, for by thy so often calling them to thy assistance, thou hast taught them to be captains over thee.

Verse 22
Thy skirts - Probably these phrases are fetched from the usual practice of soldiers when they have conquered a place and taken prisoners, to strip them. By skirts is meant the lower part of their bodies covered with the lower part of their garments.

Verse 26
Therefore - I will expose thee to shame and contempt.

Verse 27
Thy whoredom - Thy idolatries.
