HAYDOCK CATHOLIC BIBLE COMMENTARY ON THE OLD TESTAMENT



JEREMIAS 24

 

CHAPTER XXIV.

 

Ver. 1.  Engravers.  Heb. "those who enclose."  4 K. xxiv. 14. and 1 K. xiii. 19.

 

Ver. 2.  Season.  Appearing in autumn and ripe in spring.  Mic. vii. 1.  C.

 

Ver. 5.  Regard.  Lit. "know," with love.  Ps. i. 6.  H. --- Jechonias was treated with honour, (4 K. xxv. 27.) as well as Daniel (ii. 48.) and Zorobabel, of the same family.  C. xxix. 5.  The captives, under Sedecias, (v. 8.) were much more abused.  C. xxix. 17.  C. --- This is the literal sense; the mystical shews that the good shall be rewarded.  W.

 

Ver. 6.  Up, till the Messias appear, and the true Israel of God, his disciples, to whom the promises chiefly pertain.  They will continue for ever.  If this answer does not give satisfaction, as it ought, we may say that the Jews did not comply with the condition, and were therefore abandoned to the Romans.  C.

 

Ver. 8.  Egypt, to which they fled contrary to the prophet's advice.  4 K. xxv. 26.
