Chapter 44

Chapter Overview

Jeremiah represents to the people in Egypt, the former sins and punishment of Judah, verse 1-10.
He prophesies of their destruction in Egypt, verse 11-14.
Their obstinacy, verse 15-19.
Threatened, verse 20-28.
For a sign, the destruction of Egypt is foretold, verse 29, 30.

Verse 1
At Migdol - It seems the Jews that went into Egypt had planted themselves at these four places. Migdol was a city upon the borders of the Red Sea. Noph was a city, which the Greeks and Latines called Memphis; it is thought to be that, which is now called Cairo. Pathros was the province, since called Thebais.

Verse 14
For none - Only such shall escape, as have been forced into Egypt against their wills; and as did not fall in with the idolatry of the Egyptians.

Verse 15
All the men - It should seem those that did it were mostly women, and that they did it with some privacy, so that all their husbands did not know of it.

Verse 26
The Lord liveth - There shall not any be left alive of the Jews that are in Egypt, to swear The Lord God liveth.

Verse 29
This shall be a sign - Signs are usually antecedent to the thing signified, but the word is taken in a larger notion in this place for that which should attend the thing signified by it.
