Matthew Henry

Matthew Henry's Concise Commentary on the Bible - Jeremiah 22:20-30

20-30 The Jewish state is described under a threefold character. Very haughty in a day of peace and safety. Very fearful on alarm of trouble. Very much cast down under pressure of trouble. Many never are ashamed of their sins till brought by them to the last extremity. The king shall close his days in bondage. Those that think themselves as signets on God's right hand, must not be secure, but fear lest they should be plucked thence. The Jewish king and his family shall be carried to Babylon. We... read more

The Popular Commentary by Paul E. Kretzmann - Jeremiah 22:10-30

Prophecies Relating to Shallum, Jehoikim, and Jehoiachin v. 10. Weep ye not for the dead, so Jeremiah admonished the people of Judah, neither bemoan him, namely, Josiah, the last good king, who had stayed the doom pronounced upon the reprobate people, but weep sore for him that goeth away, whose departure in this case is truly an occasion for great sorrowing, for he shall return no more nor see his native country, being dragged into a shameful exile, from which there would be no... read more

G. Campbell Morgan's Exposition on the Whole Bible - Jeremiah 22:1-30

The message Jeremiah gave the deputation was not enough. He was commanded to go to the house of the king. This he did, and what he there said occupies the succeeding chapters up to and including chapter twenty-seven. Arrived at the court, he, first of all, repeated at greater length his call to repentance and warning. The way of repentance is the way of restoration. The way of disobedience is the way of destruction. He then reviewed in three movements the history of the three predecessors of... read more

Peter Pett

Peter Pett's Commentary on the Bible - Jeremiah 22:1-30

Subsection 7). Words Concerning Various Kings (Jeremiah 21:1 to Jeremiah 24:10 ). This subsection proceeds in logical sequence although not chronologically, and will centre on three special themes, firstly on the fact that all hope for Judah in the short term has now gone, secondly that the promises of the false prophets suggesting that any of the current sons of David will be restored to the throne are invalid, and thirdly that while final blessing ‘in coming days’ will truly be at the... read more

Peter Pett

Peter Pett's Commentary on the Bible - Jeremiah 22:10-30

The Inadequacy Of All The Current Sons Of David To Deliver Judah (Jeremiah 22:10-30 ). Having dealt with Zedekiah, Nebuchadrezzar’a appointee, in the opening passage of the subsection, and having shown that in his day he was rejected by YHWH, Jeremiah now deals with the remaining three possible ‘sons of David’, those genuinely appointed by the people and their princes. There appears to have been some excitement in the air as hopes were placed, first in the absent Jehoahaz (Shallum) in Egypt,... read more

Peter Pett

Peter Pett's Commentary on the Bible - Jeremiah 22:20-30

The Inadequacy Of Jehoiachin (Jechoniah, Coniah) (Jeremiah 22:20-30 ). Finally Jeremiah brings out the unsuitability of Jehoiachin (Jechoniah), Jehoiakim’s son, to be the promised coming son of David who would deliver Judah/Israel. Jehoiachin may well have ruled alongside his father since he was eight (2 Chronicles 36:9) and he was only eighteen when he came to the throne as sole king in the most difficult of circumstances (2 Kings 24:8-17). Jerusalem was at that stage surrounded by the... read more

Arthur Peake's Commentary on the Bible - Jeremiah 22:1-30

Jeremiah 22:1 to Jeremiah 23:8 . This section contains several distinct Jeremianic prophecies, relating to contemporary kings of Judah; they have been editorially collected, probably with some expansion. Jeremiah 22:1-1 Samuel : . Introduction.— The prophet is sent down to the palace (lower than the Temple, and on the S.) to declare judgment and justice as the condition of permanence in the royal line. He bewails in a dirge ( Jeremiah 22:6 f.) the fall of the royal house, which is like that... read more
