Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Jeremiah 42

Verse 6

Whether it be good, or whether it be evil, we will obey the voice of the LORD our God, to whom we send thee; that it may be well with us, when we obey the voice of the LORD our God.

Good or evil — Whether grateful or ungrateful to us.

Verse 10

If ye will still abide in this land, then will I build you, and not pull you down, and I will plant you, and not pluck you up: for I repent me of the evil that I have done unto you.

I repent — I am satisfied with the punishment your nation hath undergone, and as to the remainder, will change the course of my providence.
