Jeremiah 30:13

Jeremiah 30:13

[There is] none to plead thy cause, that thou mayest be bound
up
None that will give themselves the trouble to look into their wound to judge of it; to consult, and reason, and debate about the nature of it; and what methods are most advisable to take for the healing and binding of it up: or, as others, "for the compression" F23 of it; the squeezing out the corrupt matter, in order to bring it to a cure: thou hast no healing medicines;
either of thine own, or of others, preparing for thee: the design of all these expressions is to show the helpless and hopeless state of the people of Israel, before their call, conversion, and restoration; by which it will appear to be the Lord's work, and his only; and since he was able to do it, and would do it, therefore Jacob and Israel had no reason to be afraid and dismayed, though their case might seem desperate.
