The Scofield Bible Commentary, by Cyrus Ingerson Scofield, [1917], at

Jeremiah Chapter 11

Jeremiah 11:1

jer 11:1

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 (Deu 28:1-30); (Deu 28:9).

(See Scofield) - (Deu 30:3).

The Assyrian and Babylonian captivities of Israel and of Judah were the execution of the warning, (Deu 28:63-68).

Jeremiah 11:15

jer 11:15

holy flesh

See (Hag 2:12) that is, to what purpose the "holy flesh" of sacrifices? Its efficacy is "passed from thee" who rejoicest in evil.

Compare (Isa 1:13-15).
