Still the prophet is attempting to awaken this secure and stubborn people to repentance, by the consideration of the judgments of God that were coming upon them. He is to tell them, I. By the sign of a girdle spoiled that their pride should be stained, Jer. 13:1-11. II. By the sign of bottles filled with wine that their counsels should be blasted, Jer. 13:12-14. III. In consideration hereof he is to call them to repent and humble themselves, Jer. 13:15-21. IV. He is to convince them that it is for their obstinacy and incorrigibleness that the judgments of God are so prolonged and brought to extremity, Jer. 13:22-27.
