SEV Biblia, Chapter 38:1 Â¶ Y oyó Sefatías hijo de Matán, y Gedalías hijo de Pasur, y Jucal hijo de Selemías, y Pasur hijo de Malquías, las palabras que Jeremías hablaba a todo el pueblo, diciendo:
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Jeremiah 38:1 Verse 1. Then Shephatiah] This was the faction-what Dahler terms the Antitheocratic faction-who were enemies to Jeremiah, and sought his life.
Matthew Henry Commentary
Jeremiah is cast into a dungeon, from whence he is delivered by a Ethiopian. (Jer. 38:1-13) He advises the king to surrender to the Chaldeans. (Jer. 38:14-28)
Jer. 38:1-13 Jeremiah went on in his plain preaching. The princes wen on in their malice. It is common for wicked people to look upon God' faithful ministers as enemies, because they show what enemies the wicked are to themselves while impenitent. Jeremiah was put into dungeon. Many of God's faithful witnesses have been privately made awa in prisons. Ebed-melech was an Ethiopian; yet he spoke to the kin faithfully, These men have done ill in all they have done to Jeremiah See how God can raise up friends for his people in distress. Order were given for the prophet's release, and Ebed-melech saw him drawn up Let this encourage us to appear boldly for God. Special notice is take of his tenderness for Jeremiah. What do we behold in the differen characters then, but the same we behold in the different character now, that the Lord's children are conformed to his example, and the children of Satan to their master?
Jer. 38:14-28 Jeremiah was not forward to repeat the warnings, whic seemed only to endanger his own life, and to add to the king's guilt but asked whether he feared to do the will of God. The less men fea God, the more they fear men; often they dare not act according to their own judgments and consciences __________________________________________________________________
