Jeremiah 8:6 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

Thus the Lord will put an end to all joyfulness in life throughout the land: cf. Hosea 2:13; Ezekiel 26:13. The voice of the bridegroom and the bride is a circumlocution for the mirth of marriage festivities; cf. 1 Macc. 9:39. All joy will be dumb, for the land shall become a waste; as the people had been warned, in Leviticus 26:31, Leviticus 26:33, would be the case if they forsook the Lord.
