G. Campbell Morgan's Exposition on the Whole Bible
Jeremiah 15

 

 

Verses 1-21

To this great appeal Jehovah again replied by declaring mercy to be impossible, and judgment inevitable, and this on account of the sin of Manasseh which had been persisted in, namely, the rejection of Jehovah by the people. Therefore they had been judged, and judgment must be completed.

On hearing this the prophet cried out in great anguish, and Jehovah promised to strengthen him, while reiterating His determination to punish the people.

Once again the prophet replied, first in resignation, and then in prayer on behalf of himself, which ended with a sigh, indicative of the strain being put on his faith. The controversy ends with Jehovah's promise that if Jeremiah would be true to the word of God, God would be to him a defense and a deliverance.
