John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Jeremiah 2:7

And I brought you into a plentiful country
"Into the land of Carmel", as in the Hebrew text; that is,

``into the land of Israel, which was planted as Carmel,''
as the Targum paraphrases it; with wheat, barley, vines, fig trees, pomegranates, and olives; a land flowing with milk and honey, ( Deuteronomy 8:8 ) , so Ben Melech: to eat the fruit thereof and the goodness thereof;
of vineyards and oliveyards, which they had not planted, and for which they had never laboured, ( Joshua 24:13 ) : but when ye entered ye defiled my land;
which the Lord had chosen above all lands, where he would have a temple built for his worship, and where he would cause his Shechinah or glorious Majesty to dwell; but this they defiled by their sins and transgressions, and particularly by their idolatry, as follows: that made mine heritage an abomination;
by devoting it to the worship of idols, as the Targum paraphrases it.
