HAYDOCK CATHOLIC BIBLE COMMENTARY ON THE OLD TESTAMENT



JEREMIAS 21

 

CHAPTER XXI.

 

Ver. 1.  Sent, after Nabuchodonosor had returned from Egypt.  A. 3415.  This consultation should be placed after C. xxxvii.  C. --- Phassur, specified above, and C. xxxviii. 1. (C.) or a different person.  S. Jer.  Pisc. --- Sophonias, the second priest, (C. xxxvii. 3. and lii. 24.) of the 24th class, (1 Par. xxiv. 18.) who was slain at Reblatha.  C. --- Jeremias threatens the great ones to C. xxix. and is persecuted.  He spoke this when Nabuchodonosor invaded the country.  W.

 

Ver. 4.  City.  The people shall turn their arms against each other; or rather the Chaldees shall use their weapons to destroy them.  C.

 

Ver. 6.  Pestilence.  Sept. "death;" the sword, and various diseases.  H.

 

Ver. 7.  To them.  This was verified, C. lii. and 4 K. xxiv.

 

Ver. 8.  Death; the former if they submit, the latter if they fight, v. 9.  C. --- God's grace is ever ready, that sinners may be converted.  W.

 

Ver. 9.  Spoil.  He shall be happy to escape naked.  C. xxxviii. 3.  C.

 

Ver. 13.  Valley.  He speaks to Jerusalem, confiding in the strength of her situation, upon rocks, surrounded with a deep valley.  Ch. --- Lit. "valley, solid and in a plain."  H. --- Isaias (xxii. 1.) styles it ironically, "the valley of vision."  C. --- Jerusalem was situated on many rocks.  Jos. Bel. vi. 6.

 

Ver. 14.  Doings.  Heb. "studies."  So "Your studious pursuits" occurs, v. 12, in many Heb. MSS. though the printed copy have, "their;" and "spoiled" for apprised.  Kennicott. --- Forest, the temple, which is called Libanus, (Zac. xi. 21.) and the houses built of cedar-wood, (4 K. xxv. 9.  C.) particularly the royal palace of the forest.  3 K. vii.  H.
