John Gill's Exposition of the Whole Bible

And the Lord said, I will remove Judah also out of my sight, as I have removed Israel. Not from his all seeing eye, but from being the object of his special care and protection; the meaning is, that he would suffer them to he carried out of their land into captivity as Israel was; this he had said in his heart, was determined upon; the decree was gone forth, and it was irrevocable:

and will cast off this city Jerusalem which I have chosen: for the place of his worship, the people having forsaken his worship there, and followed after idols:

and the house of which I said, my name shall be there; the temple, called after his name, and where his name was to be, and had been, called upon.

Wesley's Explanatory Notes

And the LORD said, I will remove Judah also out of my sight, as I have removed Israel, and will cast off this city Jerusalem which I have chosen, and the house of which I said, My name shall be there.

I said — Upon the conditions in sundry places expressed, which they broke, and therefore God justly made them to know his breach of promise.

Whedon's Commentary on the Bible

27.The Lord said — By the prophets.

Out of my sight — Not out of his knowledge and remembrance. But hitherto Judah had stood as the specially favoured of Jehovah — as in the Divine presence — and the light and smile of his countenance had shone upon them; but now this nearness must end.
