Expository Notes of Dr. Thomas Constable - Jeremiah 36:11-13

When Micaiah, Gemariah’s son, heard the scroll read, he went into the scribe’s room in the palace, where all the king’s officials had gathered, and told them what he had heard. Achbor, the father of Elnathan, had been present at the reading of the law scroll in Josiah’s day (2 Kings 22:12). read more

John Dummelow's Commentary on the Bible - Jeremiah 36:1-32

Events Connected with the Collection of Jeremiah’s Prophecies into a Volume (4th and 5th years of Jehoiakim)The prophecies concerning Israel and Judah are now ended, and we have here the record of the embodying in a permanent form by Jeremiah of the substance of these prophecies. For further remarks see Intro.2. A roll of a book] Several skins were stitched together and attached to a roller of wood. The writing was arranged in columns parallel to the roller, so that as the parchment was... read more

Expositor's Dictionary of Texts - Jeremiah 36:1-32

Jehoiakim's Penknife Jeremiah 36:22-25 Jehoiakim sends for the roll; it is brought; he commands it to be read. But when only two or three columns have been read to him, he takes it from the reader, and deliberately cuts it into pieces with his penknife, and throws it into the fire, so that all is destroyed. And that was the answer of Jehoiakim to the Lord and His prophet. I. This was an act of peculiar and intolerable wickedness, burdened with every aggravation possible. 1. It was committed in... read more

CHAPTER IIITHE ROLLJeremiah 36:1-32"Take thee a roll of a book, and write therein all the words that I have spoken unto thee."- Jeremiah 36:2THE incidents which form so large a proportion of the contents of our book do not make up a connected narrative; they are merely a series of detached pictures: we can only conjecture the doings and experiences of Jeremiah during the intervals. Chapter 26 leaves him still exposed to the persistent hostility of the priests and prophets, who had apparently... read more

James Gray's Concise Bible Commentary - Jeremiah 36:1-32

MORE MESSAGES FOR JEHOIAKIM This lesson opens with the story of the Rechabites (chap. 35). Jeremiah 35:6-7 show the origin of their name and their “order,” to quote a modern term. The principles of the latter were (1) abstinence form strong drink; (2) voluntary poverty; and (3) a nomadic life. Jeremiah 35:11 gives the explanation of their presence in Jerusalem. Jeremiah 35:12-17 furnish the cause for Jeremiah’s action in the premises, who is to use these followers of Rechab as a kind of... read more

Hawker's Poor Man's Commentary - Jeremiah 36:8-26

It should seem, , that Baruch made great use of this roll, and read in it to the people continually! For it was in the fourth year of Jehoiakim that he wrote it, and began to read it; and here we find him on the fast day in the fifth year still reading in it. And we have a very circumstantial account of the proceedings at this fast. I think, the fear and the terror of their looks are striking proofs of the alarm generally felt in their consciences. The hiding also both of Jeremiah and Baruch... read more

Matthew Henry's Concise Commentary on the Bible - Jeremiah 36:9-19

9-19 Shows of piety and devotion may be found even among those, who, though they keep up forms of godliness, are strangers and enemies to the power of it. The princes patiently attended the reading of the whole book. They were in great fear. But even those who are convinced to the truth and importance of what they hear, and are disposed to favour those who preach it, often have difficulties and reserves about their safety, interest, or preferment, so that they do not act according to their... read more

2. THE READING TO THE PEOPLEJeremiah 36:9-189And it came to pass in the fifth year of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king of Judah, in the ninth month, that they proclaimed a fast before the Lord to all the Philemon 1:0; Philemon 1:00ple in Jerusalem and to all the people that came from the cities of Judah unto Jerusalem.
