For who shall have pity upon thee, O Jerusalem?
&c.] The inhabitants of it; their sins being so many, and so heinous, and so aggravated, and so deserving of punishment, that none could pity their case, or have a heart of compassion towards them, or even spare reproaching them: or "who shall bemoan thee?" sympathize and condole with thee, or speak a comfortable word to thee, or seek to alleviate thy grief and sorrow: or "who shall go aside to ask how thou doest?" or "of thy peace?" F3 shall not think it worth their while to go a step out of their way, or turn into a house, and inquire of thy welfare, or salute thee.
