Jeremiah 11:14 Parallel
CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
A parenthesis. As in Jeremiah 7:16, all intercession is forbidden, and for this reason. Prayer for others for the forgiveness of their sins avails only when they also pray. The cry of the people now was that of the guilty smarting under punishment, not of the penitent mourning over sin.

The Tests of Love to God
1 John 5:16
If anyone sees his brother committing a sin not leading to death, he shall ask and God will for him give life to those who commit sin not leading to death. There is a sin leading to death; I do not say that he should make request for this.
"Now then let Me alone, that My anger may burn against them and that I may destroy them; and I will make of you a great nation."
If I regard wickedness in my heart, The Lord will not hear;
"As for you, do not pray for this people, and do not lift up cry or prayer for them, and do not intercede with Me; for I do not hear you.
Therefore thus says the LORD, "Behold I am bringing disaster on them which they will not be able to escape; though they will cry to Me, yet I will not listen to them.
So the LORD said to me, "Do not pray for the welfare of this people.
They will go with their flocks and herds To seek the LORD, but they will not find Him; He has withdrawn from them.
