SEV Biblia, Chapter 39:16 Ve, y habla a Ebed-melec etíope, diciendo: Así dijo el SEÑOR de los ejércitos, Dios de Israel: He aquí que yo traigo mis palabras sobre esta ciudad para mal, y no para bien; y vendrán a ser en aquel día en presencia tuya.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Jeremiah 39:16 Verse 16. Go and speak to Ebed-melech] The king's servant, the Cushite.
Matthew Henry Commentary
The taking of Jerusalem. (Jer. 39:1-10) Jeremiah used well. (Jer 39:11-14) Promises of safety to Ebed-melech. (Jer. 39:15-18)
Jer. 39:1-10 Jerusalem was so strong, that the inhabitants believed the enemy could never enter it. But sin provoked God to withdraw his protection, and then it was as weak as other cities. Zedekiah had his eyes put out; so he was condemned to darkness who had shut his eye against the clear light of God's word. Those who will not believe God' words, will be convinced by the event. Observe the wonderful changes of Providence, how uncertain are earthly possessions; and see the jus dealings of Providence: but whether the Lord makes men poor or rich nothing will profit them while they cleave to their sins.
Jer. 39:11-14 The servants of God alone are prepared for all events and they are delivered and comforted, while the wicked suffer. The often meet with more kindness from the profane, than from hypocritica professors of godliness. The Lord will raise them up friends, do the good, and perform all his promises.
Jer. 39:15-18 Here is a message to assure Ebed-melech of a recompenc for his great kindness to Jeremiah. Because thou hast put thy trust in me, saith the Lord. God recompenses men's services according to their principles. Those who trust God in the way of duty, as this good ma did, will find that their hope shall not fail in times of the greates danger __________________________________________________________________
