Jeremiah 10:3 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

(Jeremiah 9:22-23)

The True Wisdom. - It is not a reliance on one's own wisdom and strength that brings well-being, but the knowledge of the Lord and of His dealings in grace and justice (Jeremiah 9:22-25). Idolatry is folly, for the idols are the mere work of men's hands; whereas Jahveh, the Almighty God, is ruler of the world (10:1-16). Israel will be made to understand this by the coming judgment (Jeremiah 9:17-25).
