Scofield's Reference Notes

Jeremiah 11

Verse 1

The word

This, like the other messages, is made up of rebuke, exhortation, and warning, but in this instance these are based upon the violation of the Palestinian Covenant Deuteronomy 28:1-30:9. (See Scofield " :-") . The Assyrian and Babylonian captivities of Israel and of Judah were the execution of the warning, Deuteronomy 28:63-68.

Verse 15

holy flesh

See Haggai 2:12 i.e. to what purpose the "holy flesh" of sacrifices? Its efficacy is "passed from thee" who rejoicest in evil. Cf. Isaiah 1:13-15.
