The New John Gill Exposition of the Entire BibleJeremiah 22:1
Thus saith the Lord, go down to the house of the king of
To the palace of Jehoiakim, who was now the reigning king;
the prophet is bid to go down to it, because, as Kimchi thinks, he was
now upon the mountain of the house, or in the temple, from whence to the
king's house there was a descent:
and speak there this word;
of prophecy, relating to the several kings
hereafter mentioned. This prophecy was delivered some years before that
in the preceding chapter, though it stands here. It is indeed by some
thought to be repeated here on occasion of what is before said, and for
the confirmation of it, putting in mind of what he had prophesied in
former times: and they render the words, with which it begins, "thus
hath the Lord said" F24; so he said to me years ago; which agrees with
what is now delivered.
