    NOTES - JEREMIAH 34

    Jeremiah 33 - Jeremiah 35 >> - HELP - FACEBOOK - GR FORUMS - GODRULES ON YOUTUBE    




    XXXIV The captivity of king Zedekiah, and the city, ver. 1-7. The princes and people by solemn covenant, according to the law, dismiss their bond servants, but the Babylonians leaving the siege, they reassume them, ver. 8-11. For this God threatens a return of the enemy, and the destruction of Jerusalem, ver. 12-22.

    Verse 5. Ah Lord - The Jews in their chronology, give us the form of the lamentation thus. Alas! Zedekiah is dead, who drank the dregs of all ages: that is, who was punished for the sins of all former ages.

    Verse 17. Behold - You shall perish by the sword, famine and pestilence, and those of you who escape them, shall be slaves, in many nations.

    Verse 18. Cut the calf - It seems these Jews in their making of the solemn covenant with God about releasing their servants used this rite; they caused a calf, or heifer to be cut in pieces, and the parts to be laid in the temple, right over-against one another; then they recited this covenant, and passed between the parts of the heifer so cut; silently agreeing that God should cut them in pieces like that beast if they did not make their words good.

    Verse 22. Behold - I will put into their hearts to return.
