HAYDOCK CATHOLIC BIBLE COMMENTARY ON THE OLD TESTAMENT



BARUCH 5

 

CHAPTER V.

 

Ver. 2.  Garment.  Heb. "cloak," (Sanct.) such as were worn by people under no disgrace.  C. iv. 20.  Thamar had one very costly.  2 K. xiii. 18.  C. --- Justice, or mercy.  God is bound to fulfill his gracious promises.  W.

 

Ver. 3.  His.  Gr. "thy."  Christ, the sun of justice, would effect this.  Is. lx. 1.

 

Ver. 4.  Piety.  Thus shall Jerusalem be distinguished after the captivity; but still more so when Christ shall appear, and give peace to his Church, after the ages of persecution.

 

Ver. 5.  Arise.  C. iv. 36.  Is. lii. 2. --- God.  They remember his law with pleasure.

 

Ver. 6.  Children.  Gr. "the throne."  The return of the captives was a triumph.  Is. xlvi. 20. and xlix. 22.  They had abundance of horses, &c.  1 Esd. ii. 66.  Darius gave them a convoy of 1000 horsemen.  3 Esd. v. 2.  Jos. Ant. xi. 4.

 

Ver. 7.  Diligently, without stumbling under the pillar of God's protection.  Is. xl. 3.  C.

                            Ad vos quâ veniet, tumidi subsidite montes

                            Et faciles curvis vallibus este viæ.  Ovid. Am. ii. 16.

 

Ver. 8.  Woods.  This is a poetical description.  They shall pass through the sands of Arabia, as if they were under a delightful shade.
