SEV Biblia, Chapter 21:1 Â¶ Palabra que vino a Jeremías del SEÑOR, cuando el rey Sedequías envió a él a Pasur hijo de Malquías, y a Sofonías sacerdote, hijo de Maasías, que le dijesen:
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Jeremiah 21:1 Verse 1. The word which came unto Jeremiah] The chapters in the remaining parts of this prophecy seem strangely interchanged. This subject has been mentioned in the introduction, and some tables given; and to these the critical reader is requested to refer. The discourse here was delivered about the ninth year or the reign of Zedekiah. This chapter, observes Dr. Blayney, contains the first of those prophecies which were delivered by Jeremiah, subsequent to the revolt of Zedekiah, and the breaking out of the war thereupon; and which are continued on to the taking of Jerusalem, related in chap. 29., in the following order: ch. 21., 34., 37., 32., 33., 38., 39.
Pashur the son of Melchiah] There can be little doubt that this Pashur was a different person from him who was called the son of Immur in the preceding chapter.
Matthew Henry Commentary
The only way of deliverance is to be surrendering to the Babylonians (Jer. 21:1-10) The wickedness of the king and his household. (Jer 21:11-14)
Jer. 21:1-10 When the siege had begun, Zedekiah sent to ask of Jeremia respecting the event. In times of distress and danger, men often see those to counsel and pray for them, whom, at other times, they despis and oppose; but they only seek deliverance from punishment. When professors continue in disobedience, presuming upon outward privileges let them be told that the Lord will prosper his open enemies agains them. As the king and his princes would not surrender, the people ar exhorted to do so. No sinner on earth is left without a Refuge, wh really desires one; but the way of life is humbling, it require self-denial, and exposes to difficulties.
Jer. 21:11-14 The wickedness of the king and his family was the wors because of their relation to David. They were urged to act with justice, at once, lest the Lord's anger should be unquenchable. If God be for us, who can be against us? But if he be against us, who can d any thing for us __________________________________________________________________
