    1 Jeremiah, being set free by Nebuzar-adan, goes to Gedaliah. 7 The dispersed Jews repair unto him. 13 Johanan revealing Ishmael's conspiracy is not believed. VERSE 1 - The word. This, and the four following chapters, record the events which occurred in Judea from the taking of Jerusalem to the retreat of the remnant of the people to Egypt; and contain several prophecies of Jeremiah concerning them there; which were "the word which came to Jeremiah from the Lord." It appears that Jeremiah, after being freed from prison, continued among the Jews, till he was bound, with others of them, and carried to Ramah; where he was set a liberty in the manner related. - after. * Jer 39:11-14 - Ramah. * Jer 31:15 Jos 18:25 1Sa 7:17 - bound. * Ps 68:6; 107:16 Ac 12:6,7; 21:13; 28:20 Eph 6:20 *marg: - chains. or, manacles.

Rather, "victuals, ({aruchah,} a stated allowance, sufficient for the journey,) and a present," {masse„th.} VERSE 6 - Then. It has been doubted whether Jeremiah acted prudently in this decision, as the event seems to indicate the contrary, and as it was the evident meaning of all his predictions that the Jews should not prosper in their own country till the expiration of seventy years. But he was evidently influenced by the most unbounded love to his country, for whose welfare he had watched, prayed, and lived; and he now chose rather to share her adversities, her sorrows, her wants, her afflictions, and her disgrace, than to be the companion of princes, and to sit at the table of kings. His patriotism was as unbounded as it was sincere: he only ceased to live for country when he ceased to breathe. * Jer 39:14 - Mizpah. * Jos 15:38 Jud 20:1; 21:1 1Sa 7:5,6 - Mizpeh. VERSE 7 - all the. * Jer 39:4 2Ki 25:4,22,23-26 - the poor. * Jer 39:10 Eze 33:24-29; 45:16 VERSE 8 - came. * :6,11,12 - even. * :14; 41:1-16 2Ki 25:23,25 - Johanan. * Jer 41:11,16; 42:1,8; 43:2,5 - Jonathan. * Jer 37:15,20; 38:26 - Netophathite. * 2Sa 23:28,29 1Ch 2:54; 11:30 Ezr 2:2,22 Ne 7:26 - Maachathite. * De 3:14 Jos 12:5 2Sa 10:6,8; 23:34 1Ch 2:48 VERSE 9 - sware. * 1Sa 20:16,17 2Ki 25:24 - Fear. * Jer 27:11; 38:17-20 Ge 49:15 Ps 37:3; 128:2 VERSE 10 - serve. Heb. stand before. See on ch. * Jer 35:19 De 1:38 Pr 22:29 Lu 21:36 - gather. * Jer 39:10 - summer. * :12; 48:32 2Sa 16:1 Isa 16:9 Mic 7:1 VERSE 11 - all the Jews. * Jer 24:9 Isa 16:4 Eze 5:3,12; 25:2,6,8,12; 35:5,15 Ob 1:11-14 VERSE 12 - returned. * Jer 43:5 - driven. * Jer 43:5; 49:5 - unto Mizpah * Jer 41:1 - summer fruits. * Isa 16:9 - summer fruits. * :10; 8:20; 48:32 VERSE 13 - Johanan. Johanan and his companions seem to have acted honestly in this affair. They had received intelligence of designs formed against Gedaliah's life, and consequently against the whole new settlement. Ishmael, being a branch of David's family, was probably displeased that another was preferred above him; and the king of the Ammonites, out of hatred to the Jews, employed him to slay Gedaliah. But Gedaliah, conscious of his own integrity and benevolence, took the portrait of others from his own mind; and therefore believed evil of no man, because he felt none towards any in his own breast. He may be reproached for being too credulous and confiding; but this only serves to shew the greatness of his soul; for a little mind is always suspicious, and ready to believe the worst of every person and thing. - See on ver. * :6-8 VERSE 14 - Ammonites. * Jer 25:21; 41:10; 49:1-6 1Sa 11:1-3 2Sa 10:1-6 Eze 25:2-6 * Am 1:13-15 - Ishmael.
