Jeremiah 7:14

Jeremiah 7:14

Therefore will I do unto this house, which is called by my
name
The temple, as in ( Jeremiah 7:11 ) , for though it was called by his name, and his name was called upon in it, yet this could not secure it from desolation; for so the name of the Lord was set in the tabernacle at Shiloh, and yet he forsook it through the wickedness of the people: wherein ye trust;
they trusted in the sacrifices there offered up, and the service there performed; in the holiness of the place, and because it was the residence of the divine Majesty; wherefore they thought this would be a protection and defence of them; and this was trusting in lying words, as in ( Jeremiah 7:4 ) : and unto the place which I gave unto you and your fathers;
meaning either Jerusalem; and so the Syriac version renders it, "and to the city"; or the whole land of Judea, as in ( Jeremiah 7:7 ) : as I have done to Shiloh; (See Gill on Jeremiah 7:12).
