Matthew Henry's Complete Commentary - Jeremiah 33:1-9

Observe here, I. The date of this comfortable prophecy which God entrusted Jeremiah with. It is not exact in the time, only that it was after that in the foregoing chapter, when things were still growing worse and worse; it was the second time. God speaketh once, yea, twice, for the encouragement of his people. We are not only so disobedient that we have need of precept upon precept to bring us to our duty, but so distrustful that we have need of promise upon promise to bring us to our... read more

John Gills Exposition of the Bible Commentary - Jeremiah 33:7

And I will cause the captivity of Judah and the captivity of Israel to return ,.... Mention being made of the return of the captivity of Israel, or the ten tribes, as well as that of Judah, shows that this prophecy does not relate to the return of the Jews from their seventy years' captivity in Babylon; but is to be understood spiritually, of a release of the mystical and spiritual Israel of God from the captivity of sin, Satan, and the law, by the Messiah: and will build them as at the... read more

John Calvin

John Calvin's Commentary on the Bible - Jeremiah 33:7

Verse 7 By the word building, God means that they would return to their own country for this end — that they might remain secure in it. And this promise was very needful, since the Jews were on every side surrounded by enemies; for all their neighbors had united together against them, and were most hostile, so that they never ceased to create new troubles. For this reason mention is made of building, as though the Prophet had said, that the prosperity of the city would be lasting, for it would... read more

Joseph Benson

Joseph Benson's Commentary of the Old and New Testaments - Jeremiah 33:6-8

Jeremiah 33:6-8. Behold, I will bring it health and cure The latter part of this verse expounds the former: for, by health and cure, the prophet means peace and truth, or, stability. Blaney renders it, I will make it, namely, the city or state perfectly sound and whole. The disturbed and calamitous state of the nation being compared to wounds and sickness, (see Jeremiah 8:21-22; Jeremiah 30:17,) the restoring of it to a peaceful and prosperous state is fitly called its health and... read more

Donald C. Fleming

Bridgeway Bible Commentary - Jeremiah 33:1-26

The nation restored (33:1-26)After this reassurance, God encourages Jeremiah to ask for further revelations of his plans for his people (3:1-3). Because of his imprisonment, Jeremiah may not know what is happening in and around the city. God shows him that the people of Jerusalem are desperate. They are demolishing houses and palaces in order to obtain materials to strengthen the city walls against the enemy’s battering rams. But they are wasting their time, as the city is going to be destroyed... read more
