The New John Gill Exposition of the Entire BibleJeremiah 52:27
And the king of Babylon smote them…
Or ordered them to be
smitten with the sword; to have their heads cut off, according to
and put them to death in Riblah in the land of Hamath;
such, no doubt, who obstinately defended the city, and persuaded the
prince and people not to surrender the city into the hand of the
Chaldeans; and therefore were put to death in cold blood:
thus Judah was carried away captive out of his own land:
times, of which this was the completion; and of which a particular
account is given, even of the number of the captives at these several
times, in (Jeremiah 52:28-30) .
