The New John Gill Exposition of the Entire BibleJeremiah 37:11
And it came to pass, that when the army of the Chaldeans were
broken up from Jerusalem…
When the siege of the city was broken up
and raised: or, when they "went up from Jerusalem" F3; were gone from
for fear of Pharaoh's army;
or rather "because of Pharaoh's army" F4.
The word "fear" is not in the text; nor did they leave Jerusalem for
fear of his army, but to meet it, and give it battle, as they did;
however, by this means there was a freer egress and regress from and to
F3 (twlexb) "cum recessisset", Cocceius; "ascendisset", Schmidt.
F4 (lyx ynpm) "propter exercitum", Cocceius, Schmidt; "propter
copias", Junius & Tremellius, Piscator.
