Jeremiah 13:15

15 Hear ye, and give ear; be not proud: for the LORD hath spoken.

Jeremiah 13:15 Meaning and Commentary

Jeremiah 13:15

Hear ye, and give ear
Both to what goes before, and what follows after. The words doubled denote the closest and strictest attention: be not proud;
haughty, scornful, as above all instruction, and needing no advice and counsel, self-conceited, despising the word of God, and his messages by his prophets; or, "do not lift up yourselves" F24; above others, and against God: for the Lord hath spoken;
it is not I, but the Lord; and what he has said shall certainly come to pass; so the Targum,

``for in the word of the Lord it is so decreed;''
it is in vain to oppose him; his counsel shall stand, and he will do all his pleasure; none ever hardened themselves against him, and prospered.

F24 (whbgt la) "ne elevetis vos", Montanus, Pagninus; "exaltetis", Junius & Tremellius.

Jeremiah 13:15 In-Context

13 Then shalt thou say unto them, Thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will fill all the inhabitants of this land, even the kings that sit upon David's throne, and the priests, and the prophets, and all the inhabitants of Jerusalem, with drunkenness.
14 And I will dash them one against another, even the fathers and the sons together, saith the LORD: I will not pity, nor spare, nor have mercy, but destroy them.
15 Hear ye, and give ear; be not proud: for the LORD hath spoken.
16 Give glory to the LORD your God, before he cause darkness, and before your feet stumble upon the dark mountains, and, while ye look for light, he turn it into the shadow of death, and make it gross darkness.
17 But if ye will not hear it, my soul shall weep in secret places for your pride; and mine eye shall weep sore, and run down with tears, because the LORD'S flock is carried away captive.
