Jeremiah 9:14

Context
9:14 Instead they have followed the stubborn inclinations of their own hearts. They have paid allegiance to 1  the gods called Baal, 2  as their fathers 3  taught them to do.

1 tn Heb “they have gone/followed after.” See the translator’s note at 2:5 for the idiom.

2 tn Heb “the Baals,” referring either to the pagan gods called “Baals” or the images of Baal (so NLT).

3 tn Or “forefathers,” or “ancestors.” Here the referent could be the immediate parents or, by their example, more distant ancestors.
