HAYDOCK CATHOLIC BIBLE COMMENTARY ON THE OLD TESTAMENT



JEREMIAS 28

 

CHAPTER XXVIII.

 

Ver. 1.  Juda.  So far Sanctius joins with the former chapter, improperly.  In the 4th year, seems rather an interpolation; though the Sept. omit in the beginning, &c. to reconcile the passage; and others date the 4th year from the last sabbatical one, which is quite unusual.  See C. xxvii. 1.  C. --- Sedecias reigned 11 years, so that the 4th might be said to be the beginning.  W. --- Prophet.  Sept. "false prophet," to explain the meaning: the original denotes any prophet.  S. Jer.  H.

 

Ver. 3.  Years.  Some were brought back in the 4th of Sedecias; (C. xxvii. 16.  H.) so that this must be false, whether  he spoke in the 1st or 4th year of his reign.  C.

 

Ver. 6.  Do.  Heb. also, "will do."  He speaks ironically; or shews that he wishes not the misfortune of his countrymen.  C. --- He approves of the good thing, but warns his people that is is falsely promised.  W.

 

Ver. 9.  Truth.  This criterion was given by Moses; and another was assigned in case the prophet attempted to introduce idolatry, which was not here the case.  Deut. xiii. and xviii. 20.  C.

 

Ver. 10.  Chain, or wooden yoke.  C. xxvii. 2.  H.

 

Ver. 12.  Way, mildly.  God inspired him what to say soon after.

 

Ver. 13.  Iron.  Deut. xxviii. 48.  The rashness of Hananias brought a heavier punishment on his admirers, which is the lot of all who follow heresiarchs.  H.

 

Ver. 17.  Seventh month.  He had spoken in the 5th of the sacred year.  v. 1.  C.
