Jeremiah 41* Ishmael murders Gedaliah. (1-10) Johanan recovers thecaptives, and purposes to retire to Egypt. (11-18)1-10 Those who hate the worshippers of God, often put on theappearance of piety, that they may the easier hurt them. Asdeath often meets men where they least expect it, we shouldcontinually search whether we are in such a state and frame ofmind, as we would wish to be found in when called to appearbefore our Judge. Sometimes the ransom of a man's life is hisriches. But those who think to bribe death, saying, Slay us not,for we have treasures in the field, will find themselveswretchedly deceived. This melancholy history warns us, never tobe secure in this world. We never can be sure of peace on thisside heaven. 11-18 The success of villany must be short, and none canprosper who harden their hearts against God. And those justlylose comfort in real fears, who excuse themselves in sin bypretended fears. The removal of a prudent and peaceable ruler,and the succession of another who is rash and ambitious, affectsthe welfare of many. Only those are happy and steady who fearthe Lord and walk in his ways.
