Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 3:11

_ _ justified herself — has been made to appear almost just (that is, comparatively innocent) by the surpassing guilt of Judah, who adds hypocrisy and treachery to her sin; and who had the example of Israel to warn her, but in vain (compare Ezekiel 16:51; Ezekiel 23:11).

_ _ more than — in comparison with.

Matthew Henry's Commentary
