Jeremiah 8:3

Albert Barnes
Notes on the Whole Bible

This evil family - The whole Jewish race.

Which remain - The words are omitted by the Septuagint and Syriac versions.

Matthew Henry
Concise Bible Commentary
Though no real hurt can be done to a dead body, yet disgrace to the remains of wicked persons may alarm those yet alive; and this reminds us that the Divine justice and punishments extend beyond the grave. Whatever befalls us here, let us humble ourselves before God, and seek his mercy.
