Jeremiah 2:25

Withhold your foot from being unshod, and your throat from thirst: but you said, There is no hope: no; for I have loved strangers, and after them will I go.

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849
Foot, and the parts which modesty covers. My exhortations are slighted. (Calmet) Despair opens the door to every sort of impurity, Ephesians iv. 19. (Haydock)


AD 420
Nothing makes God as angry as when people from despair of better things cling to those that are worse. Indeed, this despair in itself is a sign of unbelief. One who despairs of salvation can have no expectation of a judgment to come. For if he dreaded such, he would by doing works prepare to meet his Judge. Let us hear what God says through Jeremiah: “Withhold your foot from a rough way and your throat from thirst,” and again, “shall they fall, and not arise? Shall he turn away, and not return?” - "Letter 122.1"

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation - 2 Peter 1:20
