Jeremiah 4

If - If thou wilt return, return; make no longer delay. Remove - Thou shalt not go out of thine own land into exile. Yet - In the midst of judgment he will remember mercy. Mourn - Expressions to set forth the dreadfulness of the judgment; he makes the elements to personate mourners. In travail - When the scripture would express any exquisite sorrow, it doth it by a woman in travail. First child - Which is usually the most painful. Spreadeth her hands - According to the use of persons in great anguish, clapping or wringing their hands together.
