    SEV Biblia, Chapter 10:3

    Porque las ordenanzas de los pueblos son vanidad; porque leņo del monte cortaron, obra de manos de artífice con cepillo.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Jeremiah 10:3

    Verse 3. The
    customs of the people are vain] twqj chukkoth; the statutes and principles of the science are vain, empty, and illusory. They are founded in nonsense, ignorance, idolatry, and folly.

    One cutteth a tree out of the forest] See the notes on Isa. xl. 19, and xliv. 9, &c., which are all parallel places and where this conduct is strongly ridiculed.


    Matthew Henry Commentary
    The absurdity of
    idolatry. (Jer. 10:1-16) Destruction denounced agains Jerusalem. (Jer. 10:17-25)

    Jer. 10:1-16 The prophet shows the glory of Israel's God, and expose the folly of idolaters. Charms and other attempts to obtai supernatural help, or to pry into futurity, are copied from the wicke customs of the heathen. Let us stand in awe, and not dare provoke God by giving that glory to another which is due to him alone. He is read to forgive, and save all who repent and believe in the name of his So Jesus Christ. Faith learns these blessed truths from the word of God but all knowledge not from that source, leads to doctrines of vanity.

    Jer. 10:17-25 The Jews who continued in their own land, felt secure But, sooner or later, sinners will find all things as the word of God has declared, and that its threatenings are not empty terrors Submission will support the believer under every grief allotted to him but what can render the load of Divine vengeance easy to be borne by those who fall under it in sullen despair? Those cannot expect to prosper, who do not, by faith and prayer, take God with them in all their ways. The report of the enemy's approach was very dreadful. Ye the designs which men lay deep, and think well formed, are dashed to pieces in a moment. Events are often overruled, so as to be quit contrary to what we intended and expected. If the Lord has directed ou steps into the ways of peace and righteousness, let us entreat him to enable us to walk therein. Say not, Lord, do not correct me; but, Lord do not correct me in anger. We may bear the smart of God's rod, but we cannot bear the weight of his wrath. Those who restrain prayer, prove that they know not God; for those who know him will seek him, and see his favour. If even severe corrections lead sinners to be convinced of wholesome truths, they will have abundant cause for gratitude. And the will then humble themselves before the Lord __________________________________________________________________
