1; Jeremiah, being set free by Nebuzar-adan, goes to Gedaliah.
7; The dispersed Jews repair unto him.
13; Johanan revealing Ishmael's conspiracy is not believed.
* The word.
This, and the four following chapters, record the events which
occurred in Judea from the taking of Jerusalem to the retreat
of the remnant of the people to Egypt; and contain several
prophecies of Jeremiah concerning them there; which were "the
word which came to Jeremiah from the Lord." It appears that
Jeremiah, after being freed from prison, continued among the
Jews, till he was bound, with others of them, and carried to
Ramah; where he was set a liberty in the manner related.
