Jeremiah 421 Johanan desires Jeremiah to enquire of God, promising obedience to his will.7 Jeremiah assures him of safety in Judea;13 and destruction in Egypt.19 He reproves their hypocrisy, in enquiring of the Lord that which they mean not to follow. all the.8; 40:8,13; 41:11,16; 43:4,5Jezaniah.2Ki 25:23; Eze 8:11; 11:1Jaazaniah.from.8; 5:4,5; 6:13; 8:10; 44:12; Ac 8:10came.20; Isa 29:13; 48:1; 58:1,2; Eze 14:3,4; 20:1-3; 33:31; Mt 15:8 be accepted before thee.

In order to induce him to favour them, they applied to him with one consent, in the most respectful and plausible manner: they used language to prepossess him with a favourable opinion of them, and to move his compassion; and, in words expressing great humility, they entreated his prayers in their behalf, and that he would enquire of the Lord what he would have them to do. The prophet readily acquiesced; and doubted not but that he should receive an answer from God, which he would unreservedly declare to them; and they called the Lord to witness that they would implicitly follow his directions.

The delay was also suited to give time for consideration, and to retard their rash project; and, as it would render them impatient, it tended to detect their hypocrisy, and to shew more clearly their determined rebellion against God.
