Footnotes

  1. Jeremiah 10:11 This declareth that all that hath been in this chapter spoken of idols, was to arm the Jews when they should be in Chaldea among the idolaters, and now with one sentence he instructeth them both how to protect their own religion against the idolaters, and how to answer them to their shame which should exhort them to idolatry, and therefore he writeth this sentence in the Chaldean’s tongue for a memorial, whereas all the rest of his writing is Hebrew.
