Jeremiah 27Nevertheless - Tho' Jeremiah's enemies pleaded this instance of Urijah, a case judged in this very king's reign; yet the hand, that is, the power and interest of Ahikam, one of Josiah's counsellors, and the father of Gedaliah, was with Jeremiah. Thus saith - God commands the prophet to procure some yokes with bonds to make them more fast; and to put one of them upon his own neck, that therein he might be a type both to his own people, and also the people afterward mentioned, that they should be in bondage to the king of Babylon. Of Edom - These nations were neighbours to the Jews, and their princes had their ambassadors resident in Jerusalem. All nations - That is, all these nations. His son - And Evil - Merodach his son, and Belshazzar his grand - child. Until - Until the period of his kingdom shall come, which was after seventy years, according to chap.29:10.
