    NOTES - JEREMIAH 41

    Jeremiah 40 - Jeremiah 42 >> - HELP - FACEBOOK - GR FORUMS - GODRULES ON YOUTUBE    




    XLI Ishmael, under a colour of friendship kills Gedaliah and others, both Jews and Chaldeans, ver. 1-9. He purposes to carry the residue captive to the Ammonites, but they are rescued from him by Johanan, who intends to flee into Egypt, ver. 10-18.

    Verse 1. Now - Three months after the city was taken. Ishmael - The same Ishmael that came to Gedaliah, ver. 8, 9, to whom he swear protection; only here we are told he was of the royal blood, which might both raise his spirits, as having a more legal pretense to the government, and rendered him a fitter instrument, for Baalis the king or queen of the Ammonites to make use of. The princes - Some of the princes, who had escaped the army of the king of Babylon.

    Verse 3. Slew - All those who were about the court of Gedaliah.

    Verse 4. No man - No man who lived at any distance from Mizpah.

    Verse 5. There came men - Who possibly had not heard of the temple being burnt. Cut themselves - With all indications of mourning used in those countries.

    Verse 8. He forebare - His covetousness prevailed over his cruelty.
