Jeremiah 21* The only way of deliverance is to be surrendering to theBabylonians. (1-10) The wickedness of the king and hishousehold. (11-14)1-10 When the siege had begun, Zedekiah sent to ask of Jeremiahrespecting the event. In times of distress and danger, men oftenseek those to counsel and pray for them, whom, at other times,they despise and oppose; but they only seek deliverance frompunishment. When professors continue in disobedience, presumingupon outward privileges, let them be told that the Lord willprosper his open enemies against them. As the king and hisprinces would not surrender, the people are exhorted to do so.No sinner on earth is left without a Refuge, who really desiresone; but the way of life is humbling, it requires self-denial,and exposes to difficulties. 11-14 The wickedness of the king and his family was the worsebecause of their relation to David. They were urged to act withjustice, at once, lest the Lord's anger should be unquenchable.If God be for us, who can be against us? But if he be againstus, who can do any thing for us?
