Chapter 26

Chapter Overview

The prophet, by God's command, in the court of the temple, threatens that the temple shall be as Shiloh, and the land a curse: exhorts to repentance, verse 1-7.
He is apprehended and arraigned, verse 8-11.
His apology, verse 12-15.
The princes clear him by the example of Micah, verse 16-19.
and of Urijah, verse 20-23.
and by the care of Ahikam, verse 24.

Verse 10
When - When the nobles, and other civil magistrates, heard of the tumult, they came from the king's court, where the nobles and great officers of nations usually are, to the temple. At the entry - It was the place where their sanhedrim, who were to judge of false prophets, were wont to sit.

Verse 11
The priests - "In the corrupt state of all kingdoms, the ecclesiastical officers always were the greatest enemies to the faithful ministers of God." They speak to the members of the court who are called princes, and to the people who were in the court.

Verse 18
Micah - This was that Micah, whose prophecies are part of holy writ, as appears by Micah 1:1; , where are the very words of the prophecy here mentioned, the substance of whose prophecy was the same with this, that Zion should be plowed up, and the place where the temple stood, should become so desolate that trees should grow there, as in a forest.

Verse 19
Thus - Now, if we should take a quite contrary course, and put this man to death, we should do ourselves no good, but procure great evil against our souls; that is against ourselves.

Verse 20
And there was - This is a story which we have recorded in no other part of scripture. They are probably the words of some others, who were enemies to Jeremiah.

Verse 23
Cast his body - Not in the sepulchers of the prophets, but amongst the vulgar people.

Verse 24
Nevertheless - Tho' Jeremiah's enemies pleaded this instance of Urijah, a case judged in this very king's reign; yet the hand, that is, the power and interest of Ahikam, one of Josiah's counsellors, and the father of Gedaliah, was with Jeremiah.
