Chapter 41

Chapter Overview

Ishmael, under a colour of friendship kills Gedaliah and others, both Jews and Chaldeans, verse 1-9.
He purposes to carry the residue captive to the Ammonites, but they are rescued from him by Johanan, who intends to flee into Egypt, verse 10-18.

Verse 1
Now - Three months after the city was taken. Ishmael - The same Ishmael that came to Gedaliah, verse 8,9, to whom he sware protection; only here we are told he was of the royal blood, which might both raise his spirits, as having a more legal pretence to the government, and rendered him a fitter instrument, for Baalis the king or queen of the Ammonites to make use of. The princes - Some of the princes, who had escaped the army of the king of Babylon.

Verse 3
Slew - All those who were about the court of Gedaliah.

Verse 4
No man - No man who lived at any distance from Mizpah.

Verse 5
There came men - Who possibly had not heard of the temple being burnt. Cut themselves - With all indications of mourning used in those countries.

Verse 8
He forebare - His covetousness prevailed over his cruelty.
