Jeremiah 21:7, 9
O Lord, thou hast deceived me, and I was deceived: thou art stronger than I, and hast prevailed; I am in derision daily, every one mocketh me.
Then said I, I will not make mention of him, nor speak any more in his name. But his word was in mine heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I was weary with forbearing, and I could not stay. [Dake].
Jeremiah, like many other men who have been tested by suffering, failed God and laid blame on the Almighty for his insults and bodily suffering.
He had been scourged with 39 stripes and been in the stocks a night, mocked by the multitude.
Not being told this would happen when he was called by the Lord, he therefore accused Jehovah of deceiving him [v7].
The Hebrew word ‘pathah’ for deceived here could mean induced, or persuaded in a better sense than deceit. It is translated ‘persuaded’ in Pr. 25:15; and ‘allure’ in Hos. 2:15.
It seemed to Jeremiah that he had made an utter failure and his labor was in vain, so he was crushed at spending his life for nothing.
He determined to quit speaking the word of the Lord; but it became as a fire shut up in his bones and he was weary of holding it back [v9].
