Bible Verse Explanations and Resources


Jeremiah 2:7

Adam Clarke
Bible Commentary

And I brought you into a plentiful country - The land of Canaan.

My land - The particular property of God, which he gave to them as an inheritance, they being his peculiar people.

Albert Barnes
Notes on the Whole Bible

A plentiful country - literally, “a land of the Carmel,” a Carmel land (see 1 Kings 18:19, note; Isaiah 29:17, note).

Matthew Henry
Concise Bible Commentary
Those who begin well, but do not persevere, will justly be upbraided with their hopeful and promising beginnings. Those who desert religion, commonly oppose it more than those who never knew it. For this they could have no excuse. God's spiritual Israel must own their obligations to him for safe conduct through the wilderness of this world, so dangerous to the soul. Alas, that many, who once appeared devoted to the Lord, so live that their professions aggravate their crimes! Let us be careful that we do not lose in zeal and fervency, as we gain knowledge.
