Jeremiah 22:27

Jeremiah 22:27

But to the land whereunto they desire to return
Or, "lift up their soul to return" F3: either by making supplication to God, for it, ( Psalms 25:1 ) ; or buoying up themselves with vain hopes, founded upon the declarations of the false prophets, that they should return; and to which no doubt they had a natural desire, and comforted themselves with the hopes of it; but all in vain: thither shall they not return;
for they were to die, as before predicted, in another country, as they did, and never saw their own any more.
