Jeremiah 6:30 Meaning and Commentary

Jeremiah 6:30

Reprobate silver shall men call them
Or, "call ye them" {i}, as the Targum; so the Septuagint, Vulgate Latin, and Arabic versions; by whom are meant the Jews, who thought themselves of some account, as silver; being the seed of Abraham, and having the law, the covenant and promises, and service of God; when those that tried them, as the prophets, found them to be nothing but dross; and therefore, if they must be called silver, they could call them no other than reprobate silver; or what is of no account and value; and which is confirmed by the following reason, which contains the judgment and conduct of him that cannot err: for the Lord hath rejected them;
from being his people; and therefore cast them out of their own land, and caused them to go into captivity.

Jeremiah 6:30 In-Context

28 They are all stubbornly rebellious, going about with slanders; they are bronze and iron, all of them act corruptly.
29 The bellows blow fiercely, the lead is consumed by the fire; in vain the refining goes on, for the wicked are not removed.
30 They are called "rejected silver," for the Lord has rejected them.
