SEV Biblia, Chapter 41:1 Â¶ Y aconteció en el mes séptimo, que vino Ismael, hijo de Netanías, hijo de Elisama, de la simiente real, y algunos príncipes del rey, y diez hombres con él, a Gedalías hijo de Ahicam en Mizpa; y comieron pan juntos allí en Mizpa.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Jeremiah 41:1 Verse 1. Now-in the seventh month] Answering to the first new moon in our month of October.
There they did eat bread together] This was the same as making a solemn covenant; for he who ate bread with another was ever reputed a friend.
Matthew Henry Commentary
Ishmael murders Gedaliah. (Jer. 41:1-10) Johanan recovers the captives and purposes to retire to Egypt. (Jer. 41:11-18)
Jer. 41:1-10 Those who hate the worshippers of God, often put on the appearance of piety, that they may the easier hurt them. As death ofte meets men where they least expect it, we should continually searc whether we are in such a state and frame of mind, as we would wish to be found in when called to appear before our Judge. Sometimes the ransom of a man's life is his riches. But those who think to brib death, saying, Slay us not, for we have treasures in the field, wil find themselves wretchedly deceived. This melancholy history warns us never to be secure in this world. We never can be sure of peace on thi side heaven.
Jer. 41:11-18 The success of villany must be short, and none can prosper who harden their hearts against God. And those justly los comfort in real fears, who excuse themselves in sin by pretended fears The removal of a prudent and peaceable ruler, and the succession of another who is rash and ambitious, affects the welfare of many. Onl those are happy and steady who fear the Lord and walk in his ways __________________________________________________________________
