SEV Biblia, Chapter 36:21 para que se cumpliese la palabra del SEÑOR por la boca de Jeremías, hasta que la tierra cumpliese sus sábados; porque todo el tiempo de su asolamiento reposó, hasta que los setenta años fueron cumplidos.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Chronicles 36:21 Verse 21. To fulfill the word of the Lord] See Jer. xxv. 9, 12; xxvi. 6, 7; xxix. 12. For the miserable death of Zedekiah, see 2 Kings xxv. 4, &c.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 21. To fulfil the word of the Lord by the mouth of Jeremiah , etc.] That is, the Jews were so long servants in Babylon, as in the preceding verse, to accomplish Jeremiah’s prophecy of it, ( 2 Chronicles 25:12 27:7 29:10) until the land had enjoyed her sabbaths ; the sabbatical years, or seventh year sabbaths, which, according to the law of the land, was to rest from being tilled, ( Leviticus 25:4), which law had been neglected by the Jews, and now, whether they would or not, the land should have rest for want of persons to till it: for as long as she lay desolate she kept sabbath, to fulfil threescore and ten years ; as threatened in ( Leviticus 26:34,35) on which text Jarchi observes, that at the destruction of the first temple the law concerning the sabbath, or rest of the land had been neglected four hundred and thirty years, in which space were sixty nine sabbatical years; and, according to Maimonides f165 , it was at the end of a sabbatic year that the city and temple were destroyed, and so just seventy years had been neglected, and the land was tilled in them as in other years, and now it had rest that exact number of years; but of this we cannot be certain, though it is probable.
Ver. 22,23. Now in the first year of Cyrus king of Persia , etc.] These two verses are the same with which the next book, the book of Ezra, begins, where they will be explained; and these two books, the one ending and the other beginning with the same words, is a strong presumption, that one and the same person, Ezra, is the writer of them both; or rather, as a learned f166 writer conjectures, these two verses are added by some transcriber, who, having finished the book of Chronicles at verse twenty one went on with the book of Ezra, without any stop; but, perceiving his mistake, broke off abruptly; for so it is plain these verses conclude; however, this shows, as the same writer observes, that the book of Ezra followed that of the Chronicles, in the Hebrew copies, though it now does not.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 1-21 - The ruin of Judah and Jerusalem came on by degrees. The methods God takes to call back sinners by his word, by ministers, by conscience, by providences, are all instances of his compassion toward them, and his unwillingness that any should perish. See here what woful havoc sin makes, and, as we value the comfort and continuance of our earthl blessings, let us keep that worm from the root of them. They had man times ploughed and sowed their land in the seventh year, when it shoul have rested, and now it lay unploughed and unsown for ten times seve years. God will be no loser in his glory at last, by the disobedienc of men. If they refused to let the land rest, God would make it rest What place, Of God, shall thy justice spare, if Jerusalem has perished If that delight of thine were cut off for wickedness, let us not be high-minded, but fear.
