Matthew Henry's Complete Commentary - Jeremiah 33:10-16

Here is a further prediction of the happy state of Judah and Jerusalem after their glorious return out of captivity, issuing gloriously at length in the kingdom of the Messiah. I. It is promised that the people who were long in sorrow shall again be filled with joy. Every one concluded now that the country would lie for ever desolate, that no beasts would be found in the land of Judah, no inhabitant in the streets of Jerusalem, and consequently there would be nothing but universal and... read more

John Gill

John Gills Exposition of the Bible Commentary - Jeremiah 33:16

In those days shall Judah be saved ,.... The elect of God among the Jews; and all such who are Jews inwardly, who truly believe in Christ, and confess his name, and praise him, and give him the glory or salvation. Judah signifies one that confesses or praises the Lord; such shall be saved from sin, Satan, the law, wrath, hell, and damnation, by the Branch of righteousness, the Messiah; who was raised up and sent to be a Saviour; came into the world for this purpose; has obtained salvation... read more

Adam Clarke

Adam Clarke's Commentary on the Bible - Jeremiah 33:16

And this is the name wherewith she shall be called, The Lord our Righteousness - See what has been said on Jeremiah 23:6 ; (note), which is generally supposed to be a strictly parallel passage: but they are very different, and I doubt whether they mean exactly the same thing. As to our translation here, it is ignorant, and almost impious; it says that Jerusalem, for that is the antecedent, shall be called The Lord our Righteousness. The pronoun לה lah , which is translated her, is the... read more

John Calvin

John Calvin's Commentary on the Bible - Jeremiah 33:16

Verse 16 Here the Prophet extends the benefits of the kingdom to all the Jews, and shews how much was to be expected fromthat kingdom which he had promised; for in it would be found perfect happiness and safety. Had not this been added, what we have heard of the righteous king would have appeared cold and uninteresting; for it sometimes happens, that however much the king may exercise justice and judgment, yet the people continue still miserable. But the Prophet testifies here that the people... read more

The Pulpit Commentary - Jeremiah 33:10-18

Paradise lost and regained. I. THE PICTURE OF A PARADISE LOST . This is given in Jeremiah 33:10 . The land desolate; the flocks and herds all gone; no human being to be seen; the cities laid waste. Now, this meagre outline would recall to the mind of the Jews the blessed days when the land teemed with inhabitants; when the cities were numerous, wealthy, populous, and strong; when the hills and dales of their countryside were covered over with flocks; and when, in the glad... read more

The Pulpit Commentary - Jeremiah 33:14-26

These verses are omitted in the Septuagint, and some leading critics think that both the style and the contents point to a different author from our prophet. In particular it is urged that the promise of a multitude of Levites and of descendants of David is isolated among the prophecies of Jeremiah, who elsewhere speaks of a single great representative of David as the object of pious hope, and of the intercourse between Jehovah and his people as being closer and more immediate than under the... read more

The Pulpit Commentary - Jeremiah 33:16

Wherewith she shall be called; viz. Jerusalem; in Jeremiah 23:6 , the parallel passage, the subject is "Israel," unless there is a corruption of the text. The Lord our righteousness; rather, The Lord ( is ) our righteousness . read more
