Chapter 38

Chapter Overview

Jeremiah prophesies; is by the princes, with the king's permission, cast into a dungeon; but is by Ebed-melech, with the king's consent, taken out again, verse 1-13.
He has a secret conference with the king, in which he counsels him by yielding, to save his life, verse 14-23.
By the king's command he conceals the conference from the princes, verse 24-27.
He abides in prison 'till Jerusalem is taken, verse 28.

Verse 5
For the king - I see I am as it were no king. I can do nothing against you, you will do what you please.

Verse 10
Thirty men - Probably the king commanded Ebed-melech to take thirty men to guard him against any opposition.

Verse 19
Lest they - Lest the Chaldeans should deliver me into the hands of those Jews which have fallen to them.

Verse 22
The women - Thou that art afraid of the insultings of men, shalt fall under the insultings of the women. Thy friends - For this thou mayest thank thy priests, and false prophets. And they - Have forsaken thee, every one shifting for himself.
