Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 13:17

_ _ hear it — my exhortation.

_ _ in secret — as one mourning and humbling himself for their sin, not self-righteously condemning them (Philippians 3:18).

_ _ pride — (see on Jeremiah 13:15; Job 33:17).

_ _ flock — (Jeremiah 13:20), just as kings and leaders are called pastors.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Jeremiah 13:12-21.
