3 Wherever I banish them, all the survivors of this evil nation will prefer death to life, declares the Lord Almighty.'

Matthew Henry's Commentary on Jeremiah 8:3

Commentary on Jeremiah 8:1-3

(Read Jeremiah 8:1-3)

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.
